I didn't expect it to be quite so many months between news items but that's a sign of how intensely busy we've been in the latter half of 2012 and early 2013. I'm pleased to say that it doesn't look like we'll be any less busy soon - there are some really exciting new possibilities for 2013 and beyond.
July 2012 saw us in Firenze to photograph an extraordinary ballet. Not my usual subject matter but it was a really special opportunity to see cutting edge artistic work - the art of my spiritual teacher Adi Da Samraj, combined with the ballet performance of the Florence Dance Company, the music of renowned Florentine composer Andrea Portera, and the music of Adi Da's daughter Naamleela Free Jones being performed by her. If that sounds extraordinary, I can tell you it definitely was! You can see a few of the images here: http://www.richardosbourne.com/ntip2012
We'll be heading back to Florence (via some interesting places) this month for another performance of Not-Two Is Peace. More info here.
September 2012 was a remarkable month. We spent a week in Iceland and managed to drive around the entire ring road in that time. It would have been better to take a month but nonetheless, I managed to capture a few of the jaw-dropping landscapes. An quick selection of images here - full processing is still awaiting my attention! http://www.richardosbourne.com/p858046894
On returning from Iceland, I found out that 13 of my images had received 'Honourable Mentions' in the 2012 International Photography Awards - which was pretty amazing. Images here.
October, November and December 2012, and January, February and now March 2013 have kept us hard at it producing a lot of PhotoGlassWorks for clients all over the UK, in particular Salford Royal NHS Hospital and Withybush Hospital in West Wales, backlit PhotoGlassWorks for Q Hotels, and a lot of interior photography for various clients. Installations can be seen here.
In amongst the demands of new installations, I've managed to get some pretty decent shoots in areas such as West Wales, Thetford Forest in the Autumn, and many others awaiting processing.
