High Country 2013 Calendar
Now Available for Purchase Online
We have just found out that Richard's 2013 calendar is a finalists for the fourth year in a row in the Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards. Each year the calendar has won an award. So again we are assured of either Gold, Silver or Bronze.
This is unprecedented for a calendar.
Content, design and layout and excellence in the craft of printing are all contributing factors.
As photographers we are observors of what goes on around us. We record what we see. As a landscape photographer I feel it is my duty to be true to the landscape that I embrace. However, is capturing in black & white stepping away from that truth? Given that photography's origins stem from b&w we seem to get away with it. The important thing for me here is that the elements and scenes are how I found them.
Vision in photography seems to be forgotten in some circles. I think it is the vision of the photographer that defines not only who they are, but their view of the planet.
The High Country brings forth views and scenes that take your breath away. It is forever changing and I always endeavour to seek out the beauty within that change. Not always an easy task.
I hope the photographs that I have presented for you this year are received with enthusiasm and awe. It's often how I feel when I'm out there. Deciding on twelve images is somewhat easy, the right twelve is always the challenge.
All images have been scanned to the usual high standard and printed single sided as duo tones and as always commentary and instruction has been presented on some of the images on the inside back sheet as well as other information.
I hope you enjoy this year's presentation.
