Event info

Presented by Digital Imaging: Thames Valley

We are hoping to be able reschedule this event at a later date.

During the course of the day, Sam will take you on a journey through his landscape photography work. With classic vistas and dramatic scenes from all around the world, he will discuss what makes a compelling landscape image in his eyes. However, it's not just the traditional genre that Sam partakes in, in fact his work sometimes steps firmly outside the traditional into extractions of form, energy and flow. He will discuss these new explorations including a body of work that takes the viewer back 250 million years into an unseen and unimaginable landscape. This work was created in one location that has a special meaning to the project.
This more abstracted approach can cause friction with the classic scenic vista approach, and it's a requirement for working professionals to wear many 'hats'. As such, Sam will also discuss this aesthetic dichotomy from a commercial perspective, all the while elaborating on just how powerful the process of image making can be for your wellbeing, both physically and mentally. Essentially, it's a personal obsession, and he will expand on this principal that it's definitely 'more than an image'.
Biography: Sam Gregory is a landscape and fine art photographer based on the south coast of England in Dorset. Like many, it was traveling that first inspired his love of photography, a desire to capture the differing landscapes he encountered around the world as a youngster, fired by his curiosity and wonder of the natural world. Originally the image making process was about capturing a memory, but as the years went by the creative possibilities of photography began to take hold, and a whole new world opened up.
Now his focus is on working with the landscape to explore its character and revealing some of its wonder and history, be it seen or unseen. Driven by a desire to show the natural beauty of the world in his own aesthetic, and linking that with story-telling opportunities, Sam believes there are image making possibilities all around us, it is really a matter of learning to be receptive to these scenes.
Sam is well known for are his Togcast Broadcasts with co presenter Paul Sanders (who gave us a presentation in 2011). Click logo for link.

His work has featured in various publications locally and nationally and been used by multiple organisations including The National Trust. He is a tutor for Light & Land, leading tours around the world. Fundamentally he believes that the best image making experiences and satisfaction comes from really getting to know a landscape and culture and then applying your skills to create a compelling visual narrative.
Sam shoots with film and digital set-ups, and is comfortable using various techniques, from ICM (intentional camera movement) to long exposure and macro, and believes the image making process is multi-step with equal weight being given to each stage.
