Dimitri-VasileiouNew Design • New Ideas

With summer holidays coming to an end and schools re-opening for the new term, joy returns to landscape photographers’ faces. It is, after all, the beginning of a new season for all of us, a season with iconic and beautiful locations now comparatively devoid of people.

The sun will soon stay low on the horizon allowing for more golden light to be captured. Sunrise shootings will take place at more humane hours of the day and, finally, we’ll be able to catch up with some sleep that summer time deprives us off.

So, to kick-start this new season, we decided to make some changes to the website. Now you can enjoy large, full-width images spread across a new and wider page display. The navigation system has had a makeover too, so it’s now even easier to find what you are looking for – and all sections of the website can now be found in the navigation bar.

We have also now added extra information in your profile page, where you can now see your membership’s level and expiry date (or next due payment date for ongoing memberships). You can also view the magazine issues you have downloaded, purchase a gift voucher, or contact us.

Why not take a look around and let us know what you think? We hope you enjoy it.
