Making photographs of the landscape is often, necessarily, a solitary pursuit. But that doesn’t mean we want to be hermits. What we want is the company of like-minded people.
On Landscape provides the ‘virtual’ place where all of those things can happen, a place where the disparate community of landscape photographers can meet and exchange ideas. It’s the perfect environment in which to share our passion. But wonderful as the online magazine is you can’t beat meeting people face-to-face. And so was born the deceptively simple idea to hold an On Landscape conference; A Meeting of Minds (MoM).
After the tremendous success of the 2013 On Landscape Meeting of Minds Conference, it's a pretty tough act to follow but the On Landscape team have managed to at least equal it.

Charlie Cramer – master photographer of elegant understated landscapes, superb colour printer and friend of Ansel Adams with a wealth of stories about the ‘golden age’ of landscape photography.
Simon Norfolk – producer of fascinating images that cross the boundary between documentary and landscape, as well as providing a commentary on both our modern age and the history of art!
John Blakemore – arguably one of Britain’s greatest living photographic artists, a superb B/W printer and a true original.
Bruce Percy – blogger and photographer of sparse, intense landscapes in some of the world’s more remote regions.
Erin Babnik – drawing upon her background in art history, she brings a deep knowledge of aesthetics, visual communication, and cultural relevancy to her landscape photographs.
Mark Littlejohn - The abstract photograph of Glencoe that won him the Landscape Photographer of the Year title may have been a controversial win but his portfolio of stunning Lake District photography is without doubt both classically beautiful and yet distinctly original.
Len Metcalf - Is the founder & head teacher of Lens School, Australia. Len is renowned for his exquisite black & white photographs capturing diverse Australian landscapes, from arid deserts and windswept coasts to his backyard in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
Julian Calverley - Has been creating imagery in one form or another since he was old enough to hold a paint brush. He has many years experience as a photographer. At home both in the studio and on location, shooting people, landscape, lifestyle, automotive and underwater.

We have organised a three course sit down dinner for the Saturday evening for the conference delegates. This gives you an opportunity to network and discuss the day's talks further. Places are limited on this due to the size of the venue, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
We are delighted to announce the launch of the On Landscape Conference Exhibition in collaboration with Fotospeed.
The exhibition will run over the weekend of the conference and will include not only images from our speakers but also images from attendees!
Each attendee will have the opportunity to have a 16x12” (or 16” long edge) landscape photo, printed and mounted on foamex (or equivalent) and hung alongside our speakers prints in the exhibition room for the duration of the conference.
This 'community exhibition' is a chance to share your work with a like minded audience and chat about the work of your contemporaries and speakers whilst having a coffee. Find out more.
