Default Pro landscaper - Adam Burton

For those who read (beautiful and high quality) British photography magazines - Digital Camera, Outdoor Photography, Digital Photographer... - they know the name of Joe Cornish, the master landscaper that everyone admires.

He is not alone anymore, as Adam Burton appears in the latest edition of Digital Camera, providing tips on how to improve landscape photography. I mean he didn't submit his work to be published or win an amateur competition; he has been chosen on a panel of experts to reveal tips and techniques. No one will be surprised to learn about it, as we all admire his impressive gallery.

He made it, big time... When your personal photo appears under the title "Featuring a stellar collection of landscape specialists", there's no doubt we can all be proud of his achievement and success. From TreakEarth to world recognition.

For the pretentious nobody of TE who once said that Burton's work was "nothing", I guess he can continue to shoot crappy images with envy.

Hi Andre.

I'm extremely pleased for Adam as he's developed a commercial and winning style which is going down great guns with publishers right now. He deserves his success and I genuinely hope he goes from strength to strength.

However, let's be fair. The TE member to whom I believe you are referring was candidly (and in my opinion overly) critical of one of Adam's images but not of his overall 'work'.

Whether we agree or disagree with that particular comment is a separate issue. To be honest, Adam's big enough and good enough to be able to respond for himself if he feels so inclined.

I'm just pleased that a TE member has made it to the big league and, perhaps, shown other talented individuals within the Trek sites that it can be done.

Paul.

Hello Andre,

This is a very interesting thead in my opinion. of course i consider that TE is very lucky that someone as Adam share his work on this site.

Unfortunately for people like me who haven't access to this magazine we can't read the tips. is it possible to share a little bit what are the Adam's techniques on this thread ? Or could you provide the link of the magazine, is it the June or may issue ?

cheers
greg

I am real happy to learn this as Adam teached me a lot of things just by looking at his pictures and reading his notes, but also by answering my many personnal questions.
His leaving from TE is a great lost to all of us, but we still have his galery to go through and learn from it.

I will have a look to this article.
Thanks Andre
And bravo Adam, as your tenacity is bearing fruits.

Charles

Hi Paul,

You're right... I'm still in reaction to this very unjustified and abusive comment. But Adam decided not to play the game and simply quit TE, instead of getting into a verbal attack. That's probably why I'm still angry about the clown.

--------------

Hi Greg,

The article is very extensive -15 pages -, so it's not something I could resume in a couple of lines. For some reasons that I don't know, we receive European magazines one month later than their actual publication, so the issue is #70 - March 2008 of Digital Camera World (still in news stands here...). If you can put your hand on a copy, it's really worth it. Maybe you can find it in your local library.

Cheers!

-----------------

Salut Charles,


You are so right... Adam was not very implicated in the community, at least as a commentator, but as soon as you ask him some infos, he was very generous and dedicated. And as you mentioned, just looking at his work is already a good teaching lessons.

Like I've mentioned previously, the magazine is Digital Camera World and it still in news stands... At least it was yesterday night, as I wanted to buy new magazines but only past months ones were still there. It's like if we live in Botswana and they have to deliver the international magazines in a pirogue along the St. Lawrence.... Grrrrrrrr!

Cheers!

Thank you for letting us know. I am very pleased for Adam and will try to get hold of this magazine.

And please let go...of your anger. If Adam, and I said it before, chose to quit, then he was not very motivated IMHO. To quite because of one single remark...I don't really buy it. I would suppose Adam had more stamina than that:-)

And the clown is not a nobody. For many of us he is one of outstanding people photographer on the site.
And a dear personality.

Best regards
Michèle

I should have said "one of the oustanding photographers", I am sure he would produce good landscapes too, if he did put his head down to it:-))) (private joke).

Not sure what my views count for really but I'll share 'em...

I too wish Adam B. would have stayed and I think the whole flap was mostly two people not understanding each other and not really trying to. Adam has given me loads of advice and I really appreciate it but part of me feels a bit let down by his choice to quit TE based on butting heads with a single user. I sorta feel he might have put more stock in the hundreds of other users who respect his work and look up to him. In some strange way I feel he might even owe a large portion of the TE community a tiny bit as well. Regardless, I really respect his hard work through the years in developing his eye, getting published, winning amateur competitions and then in finally taking the leap of faith toward going semi-pro in landscape photography (he hadn't fully given up his day job at least as of last fall). Adam has gained recognition through hard work and creativity and is certainly worthy of emulation. He's in the big leagues now.
