Are you interested in black and white? Do you need to understand what makes a black and white photograph sing? Then perhaps you should check out Richard White's current 2020 calendar.

For the last twenty years or so, our regular Better Photography writer has been producing a sumptuous black and white calendar focused on Victoria's high country. This year, he has produced yet another wonderful calendar, but with a departure from his popular subject to focus on trees!

And the calendar is delightful. I returned from overseas in time to put January up on the wall and have just turned the page to February - which I think is my favourite shot. Realising that you're looking at a poor quality reproduction photographed on my smartphone, what I love about Richard's photograph is the placement of the tree behind the rock. It's almost as though it is hiding out on the vast expanses of Rannoch Moor in Scotland.

Compositionally, the curves and shape of the rock are supported by the wispy lines of the background hills and ranges, and what's not to love about the emotional impact - the low clouds, misty horizon and the wonderful detail throughout? It is a thoroughly elegant landscape.

Richard is a master of black and white photography and, if you can't afford to buy one of his original prints, this calendar is a great source of inspiration. And it's not too late to buy one and enjoy it for the rest of the year. Yes, a sales job here for one the magazine's longest serving contributors - but I think it's worth it!

Richard still has a few calendars left, so if you'd like to make a purchase, visit his website at

The calendar measures 490x340 mm and is spiral bound at the top with large black & white images. It has been printed on a textured off-white stock, producing a slightly warmer look from past years. The cost is just $39.50 plus $12.50 post and packaging.
