Follow the rainbow!
Fill your soul with the wonders of landscape photography… it’s not always about the photography.
I’m writing this because of something that happened this week, something that makes everything I do in photograph real and tangible, emotional and a completeness. I’ve been doing workshops for over a couple of years now, these are an experience, I believe I have something to give and it’s more than just f stops and waiting for the light. I believe photography is an experience and one better shared (sometimes).
Right let’s get to the point, Barry a fellow client and all round top man got in touch for a workshop at Formby Point. All booked and ready for a great day of photography. Just one problem, you always want the best conditions for you clients, well Barry got full on storm conditions, torrential rain, howling winds and everything else nature can throw at us!
I could of ended it all and gone home, but I wanted to push on not just Barry but myself to show if you follow the rainbow and persevere, this is when landscape photography becomes something else, something truly wonderful. You forget you’re wet, cold and hungry you become so focused on scene in front of you everything drops away.
Well I hope that’s how Barry experienced it HAHA! The series of shots below are from this day, Barry has also since posted some great shots of his own and his review for me says it all. Keep going with your head down and no matter what the conditions are keep shooting.
Now the main part of this post the title is due to seeing one of my images up on someones wall. Not just anyones but Barry’s wall. I’m so proud and overwhelmed to see one of my images from this eventful day is up on the wall in his house.
The circle is complete, photography from me to you and back again. This circle and connection to the individuals I teach and then producing a physical piece of art is what photography is all about for me. Nothing comes close, this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
Share my experiences and pass on my photography not just in knowledge but as a print on a wall in a gallery and eventually in someones home.
So a huge thanks to Barry for completing this circle and I can’t wait to hit the streets of Manchester with him and create some street photography.
Here’s the image up on Barry’s wall…
