No matter if power- or narrowboats, Terry Hewlett has it all covered in his Calvendo calendar portfolio (and more!). The Wiltshire-based photographer, who also runs photography workshops, has more than 40 years of professional experience. Working as a wedding photographer, he has had many a (hopefully) happy couple in front of his lense and now intends to concentrate more on his “old love” landscape photography in future. Learn more about the Royal Photographic Society associate in our interview and don’t miss his really good advice on the process of creating calendars!
Terry, can you talk a bit about your background as a photographer and how and when you took up photography?
My passion for photography extends way back to my teenage years when I left my then current employment and started a 2-year full time photography course. During my two years I won a Royal Society of Arts Bursary competition. I then ran a commercial photographic studio in Northern Ireland.
We all need a bit of good luck from time to time. So, behind door number 22, we find a lovely ladybird macro shot from Paul Iddon’s Ladybirds and Bees of the UK calendar – the small winged friends of the gardener in all their glory!
Second Sunday of Advent: Let’s sit back and contemplate Alain Gaymard’s Stunning landscapes. His artful calendar is full of imaginary twilights where planets such as Saturn make an appearance instead of the moon – creating something very different altogether!
