Dav Thomas

For me landscape photography is not about place or location, it's about mood; emotion. Often my images aren't recognisable as particular locations, my aim is to portray the quiet solitude of the landscape – and the majesty of the light and weather.

Our varied weather makes for a demanding and exciting theatre to capture our varied and spectacular landscape. The beauty of this landscape is revealed by the ever changing light, whether it's the steely greys of a rainy afternoon or the soft pastel tones of a morning mist.

It's probably my background as a graphic designer in me that draws me towards simple yet striking forms in the landscape, often drawing on repetition and bold layering of colour and textures – forming strong visual compositions.

I work with fellow large format landscape photographer Tim Parkin to run large format landscape photography workshops in the Peak District as well as locations further afield in the UK. www.landscapephotographyworkshops.com
