And now for something completely different…

Photography has always been my primary passion, even during those times when I’ve become besotted with aviation, robotics, electronics and cycling.

So I hope you don’t mind if I take a brief break from tech posts to mention that I will soon be showing my landscape photography work in an exhibition, alongside the sculptures and 3D work of my friend Sue Riley.

I’m exhibiting 12 large prints, each 120cm wide printed on fabric. For this first show I’ve selected them from my general landscape work as well as a couple of specific projects. You can learn a lot more about my landscape photography at my portfolio website.

The show will run for two weeks – 22 July to 6 Aug – at the casino in the town of Bagnoles de l’Orne, which is in the Orne department of Normandy, France.

It would be great if you could make it, but if it’s too far for you to come, you can view the work I’m showing in my new online shop. And if you live in certain Western European countries you can even buy something! (Apologies to those of you in other countries – I’m still working out the logistics of selling further afield.)

Of course, photography and tech aren’t exactly strangers to each other. Photography is a technical art. And the advent of digital photography has made it more so. Indeed, I was there (and writing about it) when digital imaging took its first steps.

I got the photography bug when still at school. A couple of mates and I built the school darkroom. I always loved making images, and during a brief stint at art school considered a number of paths, including painting. But I guess photography appeals to both sides of my personality – the artist and the geek.
