Pigeon holes are for pigeons :)

Hi everyone,

Once in a while one hits a rich stream in one’s work. I don’t mind admitting that there is sometimes a bit of a temptation to stick to one subject and/or style but it’s something that I know that I simply cannot do, apart from anything else it’d bore me to tears. I guess there is some merit in getting known as “the guy that does this or that kind of work” and it’s probably the best way to get exposure for one’s work and, as such, potentially commercially a lot more viable. I read somewhere that you should always only post your best work, how does one know what’s one’s best work or not?.

I’ve never had a formula, I don’t want my work to always look the same over and again. I’m always experimenting and taking a chance on something that I don’t think will be very popular and I’m proven right as often as I’m proven wrong. It’s not for me to judge what’s better or not, it’s down to the viewer. I’d really like to think that those who follow my work on my blog and other sites do so because it catches the eye and they follow my work not because they know exactly what they’ll get but because they don’t!.

As per the title of the post “Pigeon holes are for pigeons” ๐Ÿ™‚

Kind regards

Leigh

 

 

My new gallery is live :)

Hi folks,

The curators have authorised my works and my new online gallery “2020 Vision – Landscapes” is now live at –

https://www.virtualgallery.com/galleries/leigh_kemp_bsc_a14490717/2020_vision___landscapes_s12302

I think that maybe, it’s my strongest collection to date.

Kind regards,

Leigh

Gallery description:

It’s been a crazy year fraught with family worries, with COVID-19 and the lockdown etc. and it’s been very difficult to get out and indulge my passion for landscape photography but I’ve managed some new works despite the frustration of being confined to home for nearly four months.

The gallery includes pre and post-lockdown works from my 2020 visits to the coastal towns of Bognor Regis and Worthing (W.Sussex), Lewes (E.Sussex), the River Thames at Kingston Upon Thames, Richmond Upon Thames, Sunbury on Thames and East Molesey, as well as Bushy Park, Carshalton Ponds and the River Dee at Llangollen.

I have a deep-seated love of rivers, the seaside and countryside which I try my best to capture in my work. I hope very much that you enjoy viewing the gallery. Please contact me if you are interested in my work.

Coming soon a new virtual gallery

Hi everyone,

I’ve been putting together a new online virtual gallery at VirtualGallery.com with 24 of my most recent works. I’m waiting for the curators to authorise the works and I’ll post a link here.

Here’s a taster..
