My current learning curve continues to be steep. The reality of what it means to run your own business is starting to set in.
The criticism that my work received last year has had a huge effect on my creativity. At the start of a new decade I wanted to try to put some of my daemons from 2019 to rest.
We all have romantic visions of what life as a full-time landscape photographer is like. The freedom to indulge in our passion and to immerse ourselves in the landscape. This week I discovered that the reality is far more boring.
We landscape photographers are at the mercy of the weather. But what the weather gods take with one hand, they give back in spades with the other!
It has been nearly 3 months since I left my old job to become a full-time landscape photographer. It is now time to shift focus from my photography to my business.
Although I live in the Lake District I am originally from the south of England. This week I returned home to photograph the autumn colour in the Chiltern Hills.
When exploring a location for the first time I usually allow the compositions to come to me. But would I be more productive if I actively went looking for them?
I have received a lot of criticism for shooting the wider landscape in less than favourable conditions. This week I try my hand at more intimate compositions in an effort to improve my shot selection with mixed results.
Making a start on my ‘hand of man’ project designed to showcase the positive effect that man has had on the Lake District landscape.
