Everything I like ( In a landscape ) but does it survive the web ?

Simonside, Rothbury, Northumberland UK. Taken yesterday. edited this morning.

I like a landscape that isn’t sanitised. Subtle deep shadows, the little ray of light that broke through…looks good to me as a print, not sure it survives downsizing for the web:dark tones are muddled and a certain all around crispness is lost d.Hope some of you enjoy it nonetheless. It appears truer to my intentions on my tumblr site at see it here

Andrew Lobb Composer Interpretor : Border Lines Album Design

Album Photography and Design of Cd by Christophe Chevaugeon

My good neighbour and friend Andrew Lobb commissioned me to take photos to illustrate  his album “Border Lines”. With the exception of the first portrait I took of Andrew a few years ago, in an afternoon in Northumberland we managed to get some photos of Andrew along the coast and then in the hills. He then commissioned me to design the actual album with the support of his wife Charlotte.

It’s always going to be a challenge to capture the spirit of a musician and of the vibe of an entire album. Both Andrew and I were happy with the result. I did stray from my usual approach to editing to meet the brief.

Here’s what Andrew has to say about this particular album.

“Border Lines is my latest CD, which I brought out in the summer of 2012. The songs are a reflection of Northern Heritage – a contemporary take on the past, and some of the people who lived and worked through those hard times.”
