Are there any particular key skills or technical skills that you have learnt as a landscape photographer that you feel are important within this genre of photography?

That’s a tricky one. Landscape photography has become a habit that I don’t really have to think about when I’m composing and taking photographs.

Being able to see beyond the clutter in a scene and pick out interesting foregrounds to set off pictures are probably the key ones for black and white landscapes. Also, knowing when the light could be better and being prepared to return when all the elements that you want in the shot are right is equally important.
