Travel Photography – Japan Autumn 2018

The 17th to 29th November 2018 saw me travel half way across the World to Japan. To Osaka to be more precise. During 12 days I found autumn colour aplenty in Kyoto. Amazing cityscapes in Osaka. A beautiful lake with many temples and a strategically placed torii gate as well as going to the island of Miyajima. Now, as it was my first time there I was concentrating more on my work rather than vlogging. So this is a half […]

Landscape Photography – Dolomites Autumn 2018 Part 2

*Note that I didn’t intend for this to be a simple film of the Dolomites. I did intend to vlog but just didn’t get the time. The 5th to 13th September 2018 saw me back in the Dolomites. Yes, for the 5th time I was photographing this mountainous area of northern Italy. Why? Because from the 19th to the 26th October 2019 I’ll be running a workshop there and I want to make sure that all the groundwork is done. […]

Dolomites Autumn 2018 – Part 1

From the 5th to 13th September 2018 saw me back in the Dolomites. Yes, for the 5th time I was photographing this mountainous area of northern Italy. Why? Because from the 19th to the 26th October 2019 I’ll be running a workshop there and I want to make sure that all the groundwork is done. The Dolomites are known for being a very photogenic area of Italy and they didn’t disappoint this year despite the weather being not so kind […]

Landscape and Travel Photography workshops – 2019

Landscape and Travel Photography workshops – 2019 So it has come to that time of year again when the following year starts to take shape. Travel plans are put in place for my own work as well as thinking about passing on knowledge to other who want to learn about all things photographically. Currently I have 4 definite landscape and travel photography tours and workshops advertised on my dedicated page. There is a 5th but that hasn’t yet been confirmed […]

Mongolia – Landscapes and People

The 7th to 29th September 2018 saw me in Mongolia. I was invited there to photograph the landscapes and people of this beautiful and vast country. Rewind back to January 2018 and I meet a lady named Jess. Speaking to and showing Jess my work she looked at me said “how would you like to go to Mongolia?” Yes, was the short answer and so a period of watching the pennies to buy my airline ticket ensued. Between January and […]

Travel Photography – Summer in Tuscany

After the Dolomites came Tuscany. But not the famous area of the Val d’Orcia or even into Siena an Florence. Nope we decided to head to the coastline staying near to Pisa. Tuscany is of course famous for the aforementioned Val d’Orcia and cities such as Florence but there are other places to see. Pisa is renowned for its leaning tower and Piazza Miracoli is jammed with people doing selfies where they appear to be holding up the tower. But […]

Landscape Photography – Summer in the Dolomites

The Dolomites in the northernmost part of Italy are a stunning area to visit at anytime of the year. Wintertime is when the area has one its peak seasons as it’s apparently Europe’s biggest area for skiing. Autumn sees the area burst into wonderful shades of yellows and reds in both the trees and the vineyards. Spring sees the area gaining the greens again while the summer season sees wild mountain flowers start to come into bloom. So after many […]

How To Do a Holy Grail Time Lapse

The Holy Grail Time lapse. So called as it’s the most difficult of all to do. But is it really? Well, yes and no. Creating regular time lapse footage during the day is a simple affair. You set your camera up on a tripod, add on the intervalometer, set the number of seconds you want and off you go. But the Holy Grail version requires patience and changing two elements of the exposure triangle as time passes. The two are […]

American Tours Festival 2018 with Deep Purple and Imelda May

The American Tours Festival in the city of Tours is held over three days during the month of July. If you like good music, rodeo and all things American then you’re likely to be in 7th heaven. Each year there is headline music act at the end of the day from a big name artist. This year saw Lenny Kravitz on the Friday. Deep Purple on the Saturday and Imelda May on the Sunday. Honestly, I’d never come across Imelda’s […]

Landscape Photography – Provence 2018

Provence. The very word conjures up lavender and old rustic villages. Each year in July this southern corner of France becomes a mecca for people wanting to see the endless lavender fields on the Plateau de Valensole. But there is more to see than rows of this pungent purple flower. The aforementioned villages can offer up many things to photographers such as doors and windows or even lazy cats that lounge around in the heat of the day. This year […]
