'Summit to Sea' exhibition - A big thank you!

31st October 2014

Well, another exhibition over and a bit of time to recover from what I find a pretty intense experience. It was brilliant to see so many people and talk non-stop about photography, the only problem being you hear lots of ideas and start thinking about the next project!

The one gripe I've had with the transition from film to digital is that today, too many images can stay locked away, forgotten about on a hard drive / disk somewhere. I'm not immune from this and putting on an exhibition can be very rewarding in that you get to see your images complete their journey.

Surely, there can be no doubt that despite the plethora of viewing mediums available today, a photographic print stands alone as the ultimate tangible output of the creative photographic process? Getting to see your own work in this format comes as a heady relief from countless hours of viewing images on the back of a camera, computer screen, phone, tablet..........

I'm putting 'Summit to Sea' images together in a new gallery to make viewing easier. Alas, unable to stand still for too long, my attentions have already turned to a photographic collaboration with the very talented photographer, Jonny Marchant (www.jonathanmarchant.com). We've a working title of 'Lake District, by night' and are currently solidifying our ideas around this topic. Coming from distinctively different photographic backgrounds, this promises to be a challenging but exhilarating enterprise, hopefully with images to match but more of that in another post!

In the meanwhile, just another big thank you to all the people who were able to come along and support the exhibition, your input and comments are as ever, warmly welcomed.

I'm now off to check the exhibition print orders which have literally just arrived!
