An Evening with Brian Northmore

We were honoured to be joined last night by Landscape and Creative Photographer Brian Northmore. Brian has been interested in photography since childhood and his passion for photography began to take shape in 1987 at the age of fifteen.

His earlier work centred around aviation photography and even now he still returns to his old hunting grounds to capture unique images of planes and helicopters in flight. He described the Mach Loop in the Welsh valleys where the RAF train their pilots in low level flight and showed us some breathtaking images from unique perspectives.

Brian gradually became more drawn to landscape photography as his love of the outdoors took hold. It is in his landscape images that you see the influence of his formative years in B&W film photography shining through. He described his techniques and equipment for obtaining his almost surreal landscape images taken in the Lake District and Dartmoor.

Although Brian doesn’t classify himself as an architectural photographer he revealed a highly creative side to his skills with images taken in Venice and of the old West Bay Methodist Chapel near Bridport in Dorset. He described how he used multiple images and layered and blended them to create highly individual and beautiful works of art.

We were given lots of tips and helpful hints along the way. All in all a terrific presentation – thank you Brian for sharing your wonderful images with us.
