Firstly, and in the most humble way possible, i am honoured to have been invited to participate in the online magazine Great British Landscapes, as a featured Photographer,
In my humble opinion, the most comprehensive collection of information, online video tutorials and feedback that you can get about British landscape photography… well worth the subscription fee, and even more so now that it has an article about me (that was the humble bit)
But all joking aside, when i received the Call from Tim Parkin, the co-owner of the site with Joe Cornish, (two of the foremost landscape photographer around)… to say I was delighted would be an understatement.
Following a telephone interview with Tim, he sent me the prompt questions, and i completed, what has to be, the most extensive biography about myself that i have written.
If you are interested about where, when, why and how… come on over to the site and have a read (the featured photographer section is free) and feel the quality of the work that is on offer in this great publication.
Secondly, and equally important is the yearly recognition and angst, that is, the ‘Take a View’ Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards.
Unfortunately, once again, despite two images shortlisted , I failed to win… however, i wanted to give a mention to two friends and fellow photographers who managed to get into this illustrious publication.
I met Angus Clyne for the first time a few weeks back on a chance encounter in the forests of The Hermitage, near Dunkeld… Angus is a genuinely nice guy, and an amazing Artist, whether it be photography or woodturning, the artistic temperament oozes out of him… With River Tay (Below), he managed to get runner-up – Classic view.
I have known Shahbaz Majeed for a couple of years now and his photography talent is only matched by his ability to build websites (including this one).
A genuinely humble photographer, i was delighted to see that he was rewarded with the Network Rail ‘Lines in the Landscape’ Award with his image of the Tay Rail Bridge (below)
Congratulations to Robert Fulton on winning this years accolade, and good to see Scotland represented so well in this years competition winners… I am sure there are others in the ‘commended’ section that I have missed as i have not seen the full list , but i am delighted to see these guys mentioned!
Well done Guys… I will keep trying… maybe next year!!
