About the photographer, Bill Allsopp
A passionate landscape photographer I am out at every opportunity and travel around the country as well as locally. I used to photograph purely in film, both colour and monochrome and have used medium format, rangefinders, DSLR's and now delighted to have adopted the Fuji X system. I can't ever imagine the need to move away from that. Gradually I have focussed more and more on pictorial work and Infrared. Both help me show the beauty I see in the British Landscape to its best. I hope you enjoy perusing this website,

Over the years I have won numerous awards and received acceptances in International Salons. These days I rarely enter. I shoot a scene or subject because it is something I like; I do hope you like them too.

I have come to the understanding that, even for landscape photography, the broad view is often not the best view. The less you include in a frame the more you see of what really matters. That concentration on subject matter is what gives impact to an image. Sometimes however the view in front of one just demands you use all of it.

Above all, in the words of Belgian pictorialist Leonard Misonne "Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects. The object is nothing; light is everything."
