Touching the Light - The Lecture

Presentation – Touching the Light

I have rarely if ever been anywhere with the sole intention of making photographs. Over nearly forty years I have discovered that if I experience a place fully, then meaningful photographs follow naturally.

In the mountains, of the UK initially, I taught myself to respond to the rhythms of the land and the light, working instinctively with the landscape and intuitively with simple cameras, inspired by the work of the late and great Galen Rowell. My own brand of ‘mountain light’ photography became “Touching the Light”.

In this landmark presentation, I share with you some principles and stories for BEING in the landscape, for becoming attuned to light, for going with your own flow as a photographer.
