NEW ZEALAND – JUNE THIS YEAR

I have been able to align the planets today and confirm a trip to New Zealand for ten days in June this year. I had originally planned on July but other work and office commitments necessitated pulling the trip forward by a few weeks. It will be almost two years to the day since I […]

CAPE SCHANK – ALIEN LANDSCAPE

Cloudless skies at sunrise and sunset are not my preferred atmospheric conditions for Landscape photography. In general, I prefer overcast skies (Nature’s Soft Box); or at least some puffy or windswept clouds to pick up the colour of dawn and dusk and add an extra dimension. My weekend shoot at Cape Schank provided only clear […]

CAPE SCHANK – VICTORIA

I managed to sneak away late yesterday on the eve of the long weekend for both sunset and sunrise the following morning (this morning) down at Cape Schank and the Mornington Peninsula. Cape Schank is a fabulous location for landscape photography – certainly one of the best parts of the Mornington Peninsula and is an […]

Source Photographica have a scan of the four page photographic spread ‘Land of Fire and Ice’  from the current edition of the Australian wilderness magazine Wild. This spread includes photographs from my Iceland expedition last year as well as photographs that are part of the exhibition opening next month in Brighton.

A high resolution version is also on my portfolio website at http://www.jholko.com in the Iceland section.

Somerset Museum Rag is the newest paper by the acclaimed St Cuthberts Mill in England, who over a decade ago helped create an entire industry when it launched […]

SOURCE PHOTOGRAPHICA EXHIBITION – APRIL 2011

Source Photographica have announced their new April exhibition – consisting of photographs from five contemporary photographers (myself included). Several of the photographs from my Iceland collection will form part of this exhibition –  a sort of preview before my own solo exhibition at Source Photographica in the coming months. Each of the Limited Edition prints […]

ANTARCTICA – JUST GETTING THERE (AND BACK!)

Antarctica is now less than nine months away and I am already starting to seriously think about what to take with me in the way of equipment as well as how to plan for the trip. Outside of the obvious must take items such as warm clothes, layers of goretex, dramamine, ipod, camera gear and […]
