Tonight, we were treated to a talk by another talented landscape photographer, Stuart McGlennon, who runs the Lens District shop in Keswick.
Stuart told us how, as recently as 4 years ago he was working full-time at Sellafield, and at that time did not own a camera. Over the last 4 years he has progressed, through his own hard work and determination to be a successful, award winning photographer.
He posted his early efforts to online forums which helped him to develop his techniques. An early comment he received, ‘interrogate your subject’ has stuck with him throughout.
Stuart’s images have developed from many of the ‘golden hour’ to photographing the moment, often spending much of his time out in inclement weather to catch that moment!
Thanks to Stuart for a very interesting evening.
Next week Gerald Chamberlain will be judging our 3rd Open Competition. A reminder that images for the 4th open – Creative- need to be handed in.
