I jumped at the chance to attend the alternative landscape photography workshop with the Internationally acclaimed Prof. Paul Hill MBE, Maria Falconer FRPS and Nick Lockett who was Chief Photographer for Central Television, last weekend.
This was a heavily attended workshop set in the stunning valley of Hartington in Derbyshires Peak District. My goals during this workshop were to learn and understand their alternative way of seeing the landscape. Having been taught by Nick during my degree at De Montfort University, I had already come across this alternative way of seeing the landscape and was keen to learn more about it and have the opportunity to practice with their live support.
I like the notion of creating unique landscapes that look like you have personally created them and not in the same stylistic manner in which almost every other main stream photographer is preaching. Paul Hill said "If you've seen the picture before, don't click the shutter"! "How we translate the three-dimensional world into an interesting two-dimensional picture is often referred to as the art of photography. It is called seeing photographically or camera vision" (Hill, 2017).
Paul, Maria and Nick are all such lovely people and very obviously experts in photography with a tremendous amount of experience that is well worth paying for. If you're interested in looking in to the workshops with these, then check out Paul's website.
Here are my 6 best pictures made during the day.
