THE LAND

A landscape image, unlike a sports or wildlife photograph is never a capture of a microsecond in time, even if the actual exposure is of brief duration. Rather a landscape image is crafted from the components of light, composition and subject. Sometimes it is a waiting game; for the light to change, a leaf to fall, or sheep to wander into shot. The whole process of planning a shoot, waiting for the right day and then getting to the final location can be a process that takes years. Then the right moment, when it arrives can be brief and the photographer must be ready to make the image. But when it all comes together, the result is a unique image, one that will tell a story about both the subject and the photographer. So when printed the story is there for the viewer to interpret and engage with in their own way.
