I have recently joined tsu the new social media site which pays you to post your work and interact with friends. You have to be invited to join, so if you are interested you can use my name as your invite tsu.co/NigdawPhotography.

Here is the latest issue of Northern Landscape Magazine, an on-line publication from Northern Landscape Group run by João Figueiredo. There are articles inside about the northern countries of our planet, including one by me about Mersea Island, a unique place on the UK, Essex coast. Why not drop in for a quick read.
My brother, who lives in Germany has joined Redbubble in the last few days. He is busy uploading images at the moment. There are some superb landscapes including ones of a frozen waterfall. You can find his portfolio here if you’d like to have a look at his work.
Northern Landscape Group run by João Figueiredo produces an online magazine each month, highlighting members work and publishing articles on photography as well as general interest about the northern countries of our planet. Last year in Solo Exhibition Group I had the opportunity to produce a work in one of their workshops, the result of this endeavour was Turning Back the Doodlebugs. In the January issue of Northern Landscape Magazine João has kindly published an article explaining the inspiration for this work with links on how it was created. The magazine is a very interesting read and if you live in the northern countries of the world why not join one of the most exciting and lively groups on RB. If not the magazine is well worth a look anyway.

There is photography which is shared on both sites, so now people will know it hasn’t been stolen!!
I have been part of a collaboration through Solo Exhibition Group with Spiritinme who used my image of Eyemouth Harbour to produce a digital composite. I am grateful to Solo group for running workshops where artists can cooperate together to produce new images. It has helped me to see how other people work and what inspires them. Cynthia (Spiritinme) produced an amazing composition using her own images that transformed Eyemouth Harbour into a stormy scene which told a story through a poem which she also wrote, click on the image above to have a look. I really enjoyed this experience and since joining Solo have been stretched in my approach to photography and digital art. I have also met some great people along …
