Photofusion Salon15

October 21, 2015


My portrait of Gill Golding from the series Landscape Portraits has been selected for the Photofusion Salon15. It is really great that I am able to show some work from this series. It would be even better if showing this single portrait at Photofusion leads to more opportunities to show the work. I would still like to […]

Project nine change

November 23, 2013


I have been revisiting the contact sheets for my Women and Landscape photographs. I was struck by the subtle differences in the poses of the four women I have photographed so far and I wondered if this arose because of my editing or because how I and my subject interacted on the day. In project […]

Women and Landscape

May 29, 2013


I have started to think about what I plan to focus on during my YOP course. I have made a significant investment in Portraiture during the Advanced module and there is lots more to learn and explore. I plan to continue to work in this genre for YOP. I am currently finishing off my Understanding […]

Portraits in the Landscape

February 19, 2013


I’ve just got back my developed film from the trip to Wester Ross. I made several portraits with the 4×5 using Kodak Portra 400. The film is a lacks punch in the dull conditions and seems to have a blue cast. I clearly need to search for more interesting light!! However, that said this was […]

Back from Wester Ross

February 11, 2013


I’ve just spent the last week up in Scotland getting reacquainted with the landscape. I was on a workshop with about 20 other photographers, most of whom concentrate on landscape work. Amongst them were the well known British photographers Joe Cornish and David Ward. Eddie Ephraums a book publisher was also one of the leaders. […]

Elina Brotherus

February 1, 2013


I first came across Elina Brotherus’s work when I was researching photographic self portraiture for my I am an Ironman series. Brotherus’s work is well documented on her website ( She has also recently published a ‘retrospective’ monograph of her work (Brotherus 2012). Much of Brotherus’s early work was made at times when she was going through periods […]

Thoughts on Landscape Photography

January 22, 2013


I’ve been looking again at books I read on the Landscape module of the OCA photography degree course. I’ve been getting my mind back into landscape mode for my trip to Scotland in two weeks time. The book I’ve just re-read is the Oxford History of Art Landscape and Western Art. This is a good overview of […]

Portraits in the Landscape

January 9, 2013


At the beginning of February I am going on a photographic workshop in Scotland. The leaders of the workshop are Joe Cornish, David Ward, Eddie Ephraums and Adrian Hollister. I attended the workshop last year and thoroughly enjoyed myself. A particular highlight was learning about book production from Eddie who is a publisher – we […]
