Episode #33 - with Darren Ciolli-Leach

Released: Weds 31st January 2018

On this weeks show we chat with the prolific landscape photographer Darren Ciolli-Leach. Darren has a fantastic portfolio of landscape work and his professional background in graphic design is evident in his expertly crafted compositions. Darren is also a highly skilled printer and we get into this and lots more in our chat on this episode.

We cover his background in shooting punk bands, getting snapped up by a graphic design company and how he now explores and enjoys the landscape as a means of relaxation and exploration. Darren is an obsessive about composition and balancing elements so we talk about how this translates practically when out in the field and much more and how photography has helped him through life's ups and downs.

We'll also be showing some short (2mins) videos on our Facebook and Twitter pages this week going 'behind the image' on some of Darren's work discussing the finer points and compositions.

We also catch up on the latest news including the BPOTY winner (well done Rachael Talibart!) and discuss the upcoming Photography Show at the NEC in March 2018. We'll be back in 2 weeks with Astrophotographer Alyn Wallace.
