Landscape Photography – Winter in Glencoe

In the early part of January 2018 I was due to arrive in Scotland to run a photography workshop in the Glencoe area. The workshop itself was due to start on the 15th January but I needed some time beforehand to reacquaint myself with the area. Glencoe and Rannoch Moor offer up numerous views that you can capture by the side of the road but I wanted something different for the workshop. Roadside is all very well but I really […]

Landscape Photography – How to Get A Good White Balance

As soon as we click the shutter on our cameras white balance will always be applied. Digital cameras give us the edge over film cameras as we can immediately see the effect it is having on our images. In the days of film, landscape photographers gravitated towards the rich colours of Fuji Velvia but unless they used warm-up or cooling down filters then they were stuck with a daylight balance of around 5500K. The raw images from our digital cameras […]

Landscape Photography – How to Process a Landscape Photo in Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom has become one of the go to raw editors for photographers of all levels from amateurs to professionals. And like it’s stablemate Adobe Photoshop the actual process of polishing our photos can be done in a number of ways. With my latest vlog I share how I am currently processing my images. And note that I say currently as I am always looking at how my workflow is done to see if it can be improved. As with […]

Landscape Photography – Italian Dolomites Part 2

On Sunday 29th October 2017 my wife and I said goodbye to the first part of our recce trip to the Italian Dolomites and drove to the next part. Our base for part two was in the small town of Dobbiaco which is ideal if you want to nip over into Austria for cheaper petrol/ diesel but also convenient for some of the iconic locations such as Lago di Braies. The first evening’s weather led a lot to desire as […]

Landscape Photography – Italian Dolomites

Landscape Photography – Italian Dolomites The 25th October to 2nd November 2017 saw myself accompanied by my wife to the Italian Dolomites in South Tyrol. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site the 18 peaks which go to make up this extraordinary landscape are a must for any landscape photographer who loves mountain scenery. The trip itself was split into two parts. This was done due to the huge area that the Dolomites cover. I did wonder whether it should be […]

Mist over the landscape of the Lake District

New landscape photography workshops for 2018

New landscape photography workshops for 2018 New for 2018 are some landscape photography workshops that I am organizing in Glencoe and also the newly appointed UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Lake District national park. Each workshop will concentrate on getting the best out of your camera and from you too. It is after all the person behind the lens that first imagines and then takes the final image. I want to be able to pass on the knowledge that […]

The Elizabeth Tower and The Shard, London.

Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017

On Friday I was notified that an image I took in London last year was commended in the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017. Said image will be in the forthcoming exhibition as well as the printed book. The competition is one that causes much controversy each year due not just to the overall winner but also those images that get rejected. It can be a guaranteed event to see it all fought out over social media platforms as to […]

Ireland workshop recce

From the 15th September to 22nd September 2017 I went on a week’s recce to the Emerald Isle of Ireland. Specifically to the county of Donegal in the north-west of the country. Accompanying me was fellow landscape photographer David Speight as we were searching out locations to do a joint photography tour and workshop. Donegal is known for it’s coastline as well as other many other locations that we hunted down in order to piece together a tour. We visited […]

Provence Lavender Fields

From the 28th June to the 5th July I spent some time around the Plateau de Valensole in Provence. The area is widely known as one of the most beautiful places to see the lavender and it certainly disappoint. My time there was divided personal time and also time needed to recce the area as I was to be meeting up with fellow photographer David Clapp who was running a tour. David needs no introduction to UK landscape photographers as […]
