Landscape photography is typically a very relaxed affair where time often appears to stand still – it’s just you, a camera and your relationship with the nature that absorbs you. Oh, and perhaps your dog too! This episode begins on the banks of a tranquil Scottish loch in Torridon where the landscape was soft, muted and peaceful. It was a perfect opportunity to re-energise and re-familiarise before meeting up with Thomas Heaton for a very different type of photography shoot on the beach at Mellon Udrigle.
I was meeting Thomas in order to scout the Wester Ross area of Scotland for a workshop that we’ll be running next year. The need to cover lots of ground meant that I couldn’t adopt my usual slow and deliberate approach to photography, which is why I didn’t get a chance to narrate any photographs from the beach. With fading light and a location to document, it was all about quick and impulsive photography.
Meg, whom stole the show (again), will be joining me on Saturday 21st July at the Joe Cornish Gallery. We’ll be there from 10:30am if you’d like to come and say hi and take a look at my prints. Look out for my exhibition in September too!
