I have now created two new calendars for 2011, titled British Wildlife Large and Small and Scenes of Somerset. In addition, many of the old designs are also available, again with 2011 dates. The calendar format is designed by Redbubble and unusually, it is possible to start from any month you choose. The calendars are printed on good quality 200gms paper at A3, so they are larger and better quality than most calendars on the High Street.
Also available is my first book, published through Blurb. Titled “A Journey with Nature”, it charts my experiences since the mid 1990’s, ranging from Nepal to Somerset and Scotland, through a series of short stories, illustrated with some photographs. It can also be purchased as an e-book through Amazon.
Kevin is a master when it comes to an eye for landscapes in black and white. He confesses to being lost when it comes to colour and feels he has failed if a black and white conversion doesn’t work. It’s a rare image that he can’t get to work in black and white though and he is able to pare the magnificent Scottish landscape to its simplest form.
Laurie is one of Scotland’s foremost nature photographers, winning many awards over the years. He describes himself as a generalist, with subjects ranging from wide open landscapes, down to macros, featuring virtually any subject in between, including a number of abstract images, where he is a master at portraying subjects in new ways.
Exmoor Photography is run by Jack Clegg. Jack is a wildlife photographer based in the Minehead area. He specialises in wildlife from Somerset, particularly Exmoor and the Somerset Levels and his main passion is watching and photographing the red deer of Exmoor. He also has a number of otter photographs, showing some interesting behaviour.
Ethereal Light is run by Julian Elliott. Julian shares his time between Salisbury in the UK and France and specialises in serene landscapes. Some of the images from the Salisbury area are particularly evocative, with lots of soft pastel colours.
Perhaps Andy Rouse’s subject matter reflects his personality, but none can deny his ability to capture more exotic wildlife from outside the UK, as his awards demonstrate. He is absolutely passionate about tigers and tiger conservation. More recently, he has been photographing more British wildlife, much closer to his Welsh home.
Ross specialises in wedding and portrait photography and is based in Somerset, so if you want each moment to be beautifully captured, why not give Moment Photography a try.
Sydenham Camera club is a relatively small, friendly club based in the town of Bridgwater in Somerset. They offer a diverse programme, with monthly competitions.
