New Year, and the first magazine feature of 2016 in Amateur Photographer Magazine on 16th January…
I’ve steadily been able to build up a small reputation online to the point that I now get invited occasionally to provide photographs and some written pieces for magazines and other media to use, as is demonstrated elsewhere on my blog. But this week something rather unusual happened, something I was neither expecting or planned in any way, somehow I managed to land two cover photographs on two different magazines at the same time.
I was beside myself with excitement a few days ago when this dropped through my door because it’s finally happened – my first magazine cover ever, and it’s certainly a nice one from my point of view too. When Steve Watkins, editor of Outdoor Photography, asked me to write the June Learning Zone feature piece for this edition, he neglected to mention that the cover image might be in the offing too…
In the last couple of months quite a few of my small ambitions have come to fruition. I’ve appeared in Black+White Photography magazine (in the same issue as Michael Kenna no less!), Outdoor Photography magazine (with more to come there too), I was even filmed by Practical Photography of course, something which was an experience all of its own! Now, just in time for my birthday, a rather extensive interview feature has been published by On Landscape which fulfills another long-held ambition.
Following a bit of experimentation recently with Multiple Exposure effects, I had a request from Amateur Photographer Magazine for them to complete an interview feature on me and the image below, which I’ve simply titled “Cotswold Trees”. I’ve been interviewed by Phil Hall before for a different piece, he’s a very easy guy to talk to and totally understands the creative process and it was a very enjoyable half hour or so.
New Zealand Based writer and photographer, Andrew Gibson has recently written a great eBook around Long Exposure titled Slow with some help from photographers like Joel Tjintjelaar and Doug Chinnery. To follow this up Andrew is running a series of interviews with other long exposure specialists and I’m very pleased to announce that he’s picked me as his first candidate.
One of my images Discography was requested to appear in a new iPad magazine Photography Week from the same publishers of Digital Camera Magazine and N-Photo.
