The New Website

So here it is. The news area of the website. Just one of a number of improvements that have been added with the redesign of the website. The News area is the blog for this website and doesn’t replace the Richard Flint Photography Blog. Any new pages, changes to the website or exciting additions to the functionality of the website will be reported here. I may also add a few comments every now and again.

So why the new website style? The old design was OK, wasn’t it? Well, yes, but a number of factors came into play that mean’t that the old theme was becoming problematic (lack of support, bugs and other issues) but the biggest reason was flexibility. The new website design enables new components like video, galleries and more to be added in the blink of an eye.

The first phase of this project concerns the redesign of the whole site. Phase two is more specific – the implementation of a new gallery slideshow system that can be viewed on a variety of systems from Desktop to mobile phone.

SCOTLAND: Lowlands, Highlands and Islands | Landscape/Documentary Photography

This landscape and documentary photography project follows a number of routes through Scotland from the borders through to the highlands and the Hebrides.

The first trip cemented a relationship with Scotland that will last all my life. The diversity and beauty of the country never fails to amaze me, and i never feel more at home than when i’m amongst the mountains and lochs of the Highlands. Much like the Norfolk project, this is a photography project with no end date. I imagine that it will be a ‘work in progress’ until the time i can no longer physically continue to take images.

The scope of the photography is huge. So far the images cover mostly a narrow area of the Highlands and Skye, but the aim is to add more areas in the future. Fortunately the Scottish Borders are around an hour’s drive from where i live, so the opportunity to regularly continue the photography in the southern Scotland is there. The northern areas also include plenty of potential too with the Outer Hebrides being one area of interest for future project development. It’s going to be a great project to contribute to over the coming years.

The photography has been a mix of mediums including mobile photography. Instagram has been especially useful for showing images as journeys have progressed – certainly a good section of the 700+ images on my Instagram page have been taken in Scotland with the Two Towns photography being an prominent offshoot of this project.

Future plans include the development of several photobooks, large format photography, multimedia and more. Work is currently well under-way on a photography book bringing images together from four trips to the Highlands of Scotland and Skye.

Prints are available and can be purchased here or direct from the photographer.

Sea, Sky, Sand and Street

SEA, SKY, SAND and STREET | Landscape and Street Photography Book

Originally created as a PDF book, this gallery features an extended gallery of 115 images shot for the Sea, Sky, Sand and Street photography book released in the summer of 2011. The book can be purchased from Blurb HERE. This extended gallery contains photography not featured in the book, edited down from the 400 images taken for the project using an iPhone.

Incorporating landscape, still-life and street photography, Sand, Sky, Sea and Street features work  shot in a variety of rural, urban and coastal locations along the north Norfolk coast. A big influence on the project was J C Tordai’s excellent 1993 photography book that documented the northern English county of Northumberland.

The project confirmed to me that mobile photography had a future and was a useful tool for photographers. It also captured a specific time in my life and the end of regular visits to Norfolk that started back in 1996. No doubt i will go back to that fantastic county, but it won’t be quite the same as before. Places change and we change too.

A detailed account of the project can be found HERE

The photography was used in two books, the first being a PDF photobook for the Solo Photo Book Month Project in 2011, an online photographic project (sadly the project closed in 2011 due to rising costs of running the porject) where the participants had to shoot, edit and design a PDF photo book in 31 days. Sea, Sky, Sand and Street was the last book (and the best book!) I produced for the Solo Photo Book Month project.

The PDF books from the Solo Photo Book Month projects are located in the photobooks section of the website.

Making Movies: documenting the making of a vampire film in Whitby

Making Movies follows the production of film in Whitby using an iPhone. Sadly the production ran into difficulties – film making is not an easy business – however the photographs shown here show the early stages of filming from June 7th to late July 2010.

The Polaroid style images were made went into the second book i made for the 2010 Solo Photo Book Month project. Solo Photo Book Month was an online photographic project (sadly the project closed in 2011) where the participants had to shoot, edit and design a PDF photo book in 31 days.

An extended PDF book can be downloaded from the HERE featuring more images from the project.

The other PDF books from the Solo Photo Book Month projects are located in the photobooks section of the website.
