By 1977 I'd left applied photography
behind with my resignation from British
Steel - someone else could have the
pleasure of photographing rusty sample
plates for their bread and butter, as I was
off to Alaska as half a film crew on a
scientific expedition! Someone on the team
had collared a good deal (including
freight) from a airline as sponsorship, so
we decided to drive up the US west coast
from San Francisco to Seattle and to get
the ferry into Alaskan waters from there.
With my mind fixated on the problems
and pitfalls of filming in a remote location
with virtually no experience in what I was doing, landscape photography was not on
my agenda. So I missed all the fabulous opportunities for it that those 900 miles of
locations provided. Provided that you could see them, that is. This is virtually the only
picture I took on that part of the trip, in the Redwood forests of Northern California. I
had a lot to learn and a long way to go before any ability I may have at landscapes
would begin to take shape. I'm writing this 40 years after the events of that summer
of 1977, and I'm still trying to get a handle on landscape photography.
