Before I was a “landscape photographer,” I was simply a photographer, or more specifically, someone who found great joy wandering around taking photographs.
Here’s my latest photograph, taken on a walk to alleviate a hefty case of cabin fever.
I chose a pretty lousy week for a photographic road trip…
I recently went on a short campervanning break in the New Forest, and with that single sentence, I have become undeniably middle-aged.
Here are some photos took during my recent visit to Corfe Castle railway station.
My photographic tastes are changing…
The tree isn’t lost, I am. Well, kind of.
How a new camera helped me reconnect with the essence of photography.
My photograph from the time that Corfe Castle literally disappeared in before my eyes!
There are fewer more-worn clichés around than ‘rules are meant to be broken’ but, for me, this photograph does give it some gravitas. I suppose I’ve developed a few limiting photography rules and beliefs over the years, and I’m not talking about the rule of thirds or that type of thing, but more things like:… Read more
Here’s my first print from my photographic road trip around Scotland, which you can read more about on the blog. You can take a look at the photo here.
I’m freshly back from a three-week photographic road trip around Scotland. I waited for the summer holidays to come to a close, chucked my gear in the back of my camper and took off up the length of the country with the principle aim of getting the very best photography I could. It was awesome…. Read more
Here’s a photo I genuinely took at Loch Ness back at the beginning of the month, during my three-week road trip of Scotland. (Loads of new work to come from that soon…) Sure, it could be an out-of-focus stick, OR it could be the legendary Loch Ness Monster! Who really knows? Who really knows…?
I recently had the privilege of photographing Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus. It has a really intimate, friendly and warm feel to it and this is exactly what I wanted to capture, whilst showcasing their excellent new buildings, which I think are architecturally innovative and beautiful. It took 12 hours over five attempts and I’m not… Read more
I’ve been getting into structural and architectural photography recently. It’s still landscape photography of sorts, but it has a slightly different set of challenges. For me, landscape photography is about capturing beauty and emotion. Structural photography still needs to be emotive to be effective, but of equal importance are lines, form, shape and tone, whilst… Read more
A slightly disappointing sunset yesterday, although after a completely white sky for much of the day, I was lucky to at least to get some definition in the clouds. This allowed for a spot of improvisation and a last-minute switch of tactics to a black and white long exposure. Hurst Castle is out at the… Read more
The leaves are turning brown, the sun’s lining up nicely with the coastline, it can mean only one thing…
Meet Rob and Frances, who had a rather brilliant idea. Their living room window overlooks Bournemouth Beach, with the Pier down the promenade to the right and a few miles away to the left, Hengistbury Head. With a photograph of the Pier already gracing their right-hand wall, they were looking for a photograph of Hengistbury… Read more
Twin photographs that is, both from a trek in Highcliffe at the end of January.
Well it took me long enough…but 18 months and two and a half web designers later, here it is, my new website!
Without my customers, there is no Dan Ford Photography! So…
