Peak District Photographers - Thom Walker

http://www.peakdistrictonline.co.uk/images/thom-walker-lumsdale.jpg

I have always lived in Derbyshire but only recently discovered the peak district and now visit the area once or twice a week, I have lived and worked in the french and austria alps and never truly exploring my local landscapes, I always felt a bit under underwhelmed by england but when i started to take my photography more serious and visit more and more places It became very clear to me that i was very lucky to live within driving distracts to a special part of the country.

I have tried out many different trypes of photography but I have always be draw towards the landscape side and would be very proud to be classed as a landscape photographer. I am attracted to the slow pace of using tripods and filters and really contemplating my composer. now at the age of 21 photography is very important to me not only because i would like to make a living from my hobby but more important than anything is to progress as a photographer and produce photographs that I am happy with.

I have my work displayed in some local galleries and sell photographic greetings cards, more detail about me and my produces can be found at www.thomwalker.co.uk


 

Peak District Photography - Higger Tor fisheye photo
One of my least used and most favourite lens is my nikon 10.5 fisheye. For a lens which is reasonably expensive it can be very limiting but can be a very fun lens to use, on a very windy trip to Higger tor i popped the fisheye on and started scouting around but ended up taking a photo of this oddly shaped rock which must be the most photographed rock in the area, but I have never seen it  taken with a fisheye, so i set my tripod up and push down on it with all my weight to stop my camera blowing away. Now one of the issues with this...

Peak District Photography - Past Seven Days
I have been very lucky this past seven days, being able to go out and shoot in the peak district 4 times. Thursday. I got up very early thursday morning with the plan to visit mam tore, Things didn't look to promising on the drive as it was relentlessly raining but one of the lessons I have learnt from landscape photography is that some of the best sky occur after rain fall, thats if it stops raining. when I arrived at mam tor the weather was perfect and i know that the trip was going to be a success. the first photo I took...

Peak District Photography - Thom Walker - Dove Dale
Since first discovering this part of Dove Dale I have returned twice to try and take this photo. Finally the light was good enough and the sky had enough drama to accompany the ruggedness of Thorpe Cloud. The photo was taken from Bunter Hill. If you are planning a visit to Dove Dale then Bunter Hill is well worth the hike, it stands directly opposite Thorpe Cloud and offers panoramic views from the top. This blog was brought to you by Thom Walker
