TALK | Benjamin Graham, Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017 on "Vision & Visual Style"

Following his talk to EHHPS on light and timing in landscape photography, Ben, this Year's winner of Landscape Photographer of the Year, returns to EHHPS to give a presentation on developing your own photographic vision and visual style.  

Illustrated using his own images, he will talk about how, as photographers, we interpret 3-dimensional scenes as 2-dimensional images, but how can we make the most of tone, texture, line and shape?  And it's all very well knowing the rules, but how can you tell when it'll be OK to break them?  

Benjamin Graham  is dedicated to celebrating the beauty of the British coast and countryside through his photography and his work regularly appears in major newspapers, magazines and online editorial galleries both in the UK and around the world.

Even before this year's winning of the Landscape Photographer of the Year award, six of his images were shortlisted for OPOTY 2015, one of which was a category finalist and appears in the OPOTY 2015 book.   

Benjamin says, "Photography has been an on-and-off passion ever since my Dad bought me my first ever film camera, an Agfamatic ISO-Rapid C, in 1968.  I am, to this day, still fascinated by every aspect of the creative process of photography." 

After a varied career, he has been practising as a professional photographer, creating images for commercial sale, since 2012 and featured in his one-man exhibition at  the Oxmarket Gallery during the highly respected Festival of Chichester this summer.
