The New Website

By |2017-03-13T11:46:56+01:00December 2nd, 2011|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , |

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

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

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

The first trip created a relationship with Scotland that will last all my life. The diversity and beauty of the country never fail to amaze me. I feel so at home 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.

Highlands and Skye

The scope of photography is huge. So far the images cover mostly a narrow area of the Highlands and Skye, but the plan is to add more areas in the future.

Fortunately, the Scottish Borders are around an hour’s drive from where I live. The opportunity to regularly continue photography in southern Scotland is there.

The northern areas also include plenty of potential too. The Outer Hebrides is 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 comes from a mix of mediums including mobile photography. Instagram has been especially useful for showing images as journeys have progressed. The Two Towns and Seven Hills photography are offshoots of this project looking at the city of Edinburgh.

Future plans include the development of a number of photography books, large format photography, multimedia and more.

Photography Book

Work is currently well under-way on the first photography book. This will bring together photography from four trips to the Highlands of Scotland and Skye.

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.

This extended gallery contains photographs not featured in the book, edited down from the 400 images taken for the project using an iPhone. The images are shown in the order they were shot. Using landscape, still-life and street photography, Sand, Sky, Sea and Street features a variety of rural, urban and coastal locations along the north Norfolk coast.

A big influence on the project was John Tordai’s excellent 1993 photography book that documented the northern English county of Northumberland.

Mobile Photography

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.

I will return to Norfolk at some point, but it won’t be quite the same as before. Places change and we change too.

Two Books

The photography was used in two books. The first was a PDF photo book for the Solo Photo Book Month Project in 2011. Participants had to shoot, edit and design a PDF photo book in 31 days. Sea, Sky, Sand and Street was the final book I produced for the Solo Photo Book Month project. Sadly the popular book making project closed in 2011 due to rising running costs.

The PDF books from the Solo Photo Book Month projects are located HERE.

Printed Book

The printed ‘Sea, Sky, Sand and Street’ book can be purchased from Blurb HERE.

Making Movies | Documentary Photography

Making Movies follows the production of a 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.

PDF Photography Book

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.
