Towards the end of last year, the first issue of a new online landscape photography magazine, Great British Landscapes, was launched, with the express intention of wanting to utilise the different opportunities that a web presence offered. The first issue was free, and I thought it was great. So I subscribed for a year and have not been disappointed (it went on my list of photographic inspirations almost immediately; the two editors were already there!). Tim Parkin, one of the editors, said at one point that he would like to conduct interviews with the early annual subscribers, and it also says this at the bottom of the homepage… but I thought nothing more of it. During the holidays, however, he got in touch, and we had a long conversation about all kind of topics, and the piece has now appeared in the sixth issue.
Tim chose a number of photographs to include with the article. The three in the article itself are ones I sent him, but the others are all his choice – and it’s very interesting for me to see the images that have attracted a talented photographer like Tim! In particular, the ‘headline’ image (next to the link to the interview) is one I recall being quite uncertain about posting, since I wasn’t sure it had worked. For me this raises interesting questions about the value I place on particular images, perhaps something to return to in a blog posting in the future. But in the meantime, it’s exciting to be in the magazine! 🙂
