I was in London last week to speak and present photographs at the Outdoors Show/Boat Show at London Excel, and also to present a prize at the Outdoor Photographer of the Year Awards at The Print Space Gallery. Both events went really well and were tremendous fun. The talks at the Outdoors Show were well attended (thanks to all of those that managed to put up with me for over an hour!) and despite the distractions of a tradeshow things seemed to go beautifully well. It was also great fun to go to the awards, especially as I finally managed to catch up with a load of lovely people who I 'knew' by email and phone but had never actually met! The above photo is of me talking with Elizabeth Roberts, the editor of Black & White Photography magazine - in the background behind Liz and almost cut off by the edge of the photo is the brilliant and legendary landscape photographer Joe Cornish, a real gentleman and a delight to talk with. Thank you to Kerry Banner of Capture PR and Melanie Beck for all your hard work in getting me there!

I have just returned from a 2 week trip to Tanzania and Zanzibar in East Africa, spending quite a lot of time shooting the fishing dhows, the iconic triangular sailed boats used by the locals to fish and import and export goods to the mainland. It was a great trip, with fantastic weather and enough wind to fill those beautiful sails. The locals are unbelievably friendly and much more chilled than many African countries I've visited. And then the food....... I didn't take any waterproof housings with me due to weight restrictions on the charter flights, so had to shoot chest deep in the Indian Ocean being very careful not to drop the cameras! Some of the photographs are in the New Works portfolio of the website, with more to follow in an 'Equator' Portfolio very soon.

I just got back from Iceland, one of my favourite places on the planet and somewhere I have spent about 2 months over the last 3 years. As usual this amazing country, the newest on the planet, just blew me away - the landscape, the air, the people, the food - all these things are truly wonderful. We were also treated to a spectacular display from the Northern Lights, two nights running no less, which was an emotional treat for all concerned (see above photo). I'm going back next year for two photo tours, one in July and one in September, and truthfully I can't wait! I have posted new photographs from the trip on my website, www.jonathanchritchley.net , in the New Works portfolio. Hope you like...
