Long time no speak, it appears January was the last time that I made a blog post. Perhaps not surprisingly as I haven't been out and about with my camera very much at all and of course these are very strange times that we're living through. In fact the circumstances we find ourselves in really make us consider our direction in life and our priorities. With that in mind most of my work at the moment is revolving around completion of old projects such as 'Where Ravens Soar'. A fresh start is needed and I've a few new ideas that I'd like to get stuck into by the Autumn.
The main news in today's brief blog post however is that I'll once again be making an appearance at the Photography Show this year, on the 19th September at 13:00, on the Behind the Lens stage. It's such an honour to be invited back again and a huge boost to morale in these very difficult times and I'm really looking forward to seeing some of you there, I do hope you can make it. My talk will be 'The Art of Composition' which hopefully you will find enlightening!
If you can't or don't want to visit the Show I am offering tuition via Zoom, various subjects available or sessions can be tailored to suit your own requirements. Zoom is a really fun way to teach and I've found it a really enjoyable experience. To quote a recent Zoom client - "Going through Karl's photographs, one by one, hearing why he took them as he did and why he selected those to compose the body of his work was an eye opening experience, a visual dissection revealing how to use composition as a tool to achieve such simple yet bold imagery." (Javier Villar Ruiz, Tokyo). You can book your Zoom session here tuition

Oh, about the pic! Many of you will recognise the location, it is of course Saltwick Bay which is a hugely popular spot for photographers. I've run many workshops here over the years and they've always been so popular and I love visiting, it's different every time. On this particular day I got lucky. When I arrived it was bright sunshine and blue skies, just the type of conditions that are perfect for a day by the sea, unless you're a picky photographer of course! Thankfully the sea roke crept in, transforming the scene and evoking an air of mystery around the infamous Admiral Von Tromp.
That's all for now, don't hesitate to get in touch :)
