All the Fotospeed Photographers such as Joe Cornish and John Swannell are at the very top of our profession and we have the same passion for the printed form of the medium. See www.joecornishgallery.co.uk/ and www.johnswannell.com/ for their stunning work.
I don’t talk about my sponsors fotospeed.com enough who very kindly allow me to follow my love of black and white photography and particularly the joy I get from inspiring and helping other photographers to learn, grow and flourish. See www.andybeelfrps.co.uk for further details about Monochrome Masterclasses, One to Ones etc.
We the Fotospeed photographers all feel that a photograph is not finished and fully appreciated until you hold the culmination of your vision, art and craft in your hands. The sense of satisfaction that comes from making an expressive fine print is a tremendous achievement. The fine print is the very tactile expression of your creativity.
One of the many ways that Fotospeed promotes the craft of fine print making in black and white or colour is the sponsored Lecture Service. The Lecture Services provides Fotospeed Photographers to photographic groups and clubs for an evening’s print talk, this service is available across the whole of the UK.
As I mentioned the new Fotospeed Photographers Joe Cornish and John Swannell who both are great landscape photographers I thought it would be wise (or not ) to use a landscape of mine for this post. Ynys Cyngar on the Afon Glaslyn is an idyllic place to live. This picture was taken in April this year just before it started raining. I wanted this picture to have a sense of lightness and open space.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog.
