Matthew Weinreb, one of the leading names in architectural and landscape photography has agreed to run a series of master classes from his estate in the stunning dept. of the Gers in Gascony, S.W. France.

Weinreb, known internationally for his photography has been offering advice to both amateur and professional photographers for decades. Now he has bowed to pressure and will host four day residential courses which will help you to compose, light, shoot in the field and finally select and crop your best images.

“I suppose I have been selfish, keeping this wonderful place to myself” says Weinreb, author of eight coveted books. “I have based myself here for ten years and think it is now time to pass on, not only tips and tuition, but to share the delights of this region with its magical light, untouched countryside and laid back way of life.”

Weinreb’s courses ‘Le Hameau Imaginaire’ (The imaginary hamlet) promise “The ideal retreat to enjoy a creatively inspiring holiday” The four day breaks include full board with chefs providing the best of regional cuisine; top class teaching and small, intimate groups.

An exhibition of new photographs by leading South West photographer Simon Williams features at the Ice House Gallery, in Holland Park, Kensington, London from Saturday 14 to Sunday 29 August 2010.

The exhibition - 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 mathematics in nature - features striking images revealing mathematical patterns and proportions which are common throughout the natural world.

Mathematics is closely related to our concepts of beauty. The Fibonacci Sequence is a series of numbers (in the title) developed by an Italian mathematician: by adding two consecutive numbers you find the next in the sequence. It’s closely related to the Golden Mean used in compositions by artists since the renaissance and found throughout the natural world. This exhibition of stunning new photographic work of patterns and proportions found in nature looks at how natural designs optimise the chances of success for plants and animals. The exhibition features information panels and books/websites to encourage you to investigate further…a source of inspiration for artists/makers or for those interested in the natural world or mathematics.

The exhibition at the Ice House Gallery in Holland Park is open from 11am to 7pm daily (14 – 29 August) and admission is free. All photographs are available to buy. The nearest tube is Holland Park.

Bob Tetro has recently added a collection of infrared photographs shot in Arlington National Cemetery. The infrared focus to these images was chosen due to the fact that the ambiance in this location (ample sky and foliage) lends itself to such photography.
