Inspirational Links - Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015

So Christmas has been and gone, and now it is time to sit down and plan out your targets for 2016.

I received a great book as a gift for Christmas, for anyone in the photography circles they will have seen many references to it in the past. However this is the first time my hints have been noticed and I have been lucky enough to receive it as a gift.

The book is full of stunning photographs taken throughout the UK by experienced photographers and young up and coming stars of the future.

The winners can all be viewed on the official website

At the back of the book there is a long list of all of the contributors websites/flickr pages/500px pages etc.

It is this that I have found most inspirational. Taking a look at the images that have been produced by all of these great photographers really makes me want to get out more into the great british countryside. Aside from the images that were submitted to the competition there really are some dedicated individuals out there spending a lot of time (many during their spare moments) to produce stunning imagery.

To eliminate all of the heavy work involved in typing in all of the URLs I have placed them ALL here.

My personal favourites from the book currently (as they change day by day) are:

Ian Taylor - The Ref's An Angel

My Photographic Review of 2015

I have just completed a short video of some of my favourite shots that I took through 2015. There are a couple from each month.

This was an extremely useful exercise as it allowed me to look back over what I had produced. With digital images unless they are printed then they tend so sit in and amongst all of the many files on your devices hard drive and can quickly be forgotten about.

I would strongly encourage everyone to go through this process, even if you just produce one slide in Powerpoint which shows your best image for each month it will help to justify all of those cold days on a beach, or all of those early morning rises and most of all, encourage you to do it all again in 2016!!!

If you do produce a video, or image of your best shots then please post it on here I would love to see them.
