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 […]

Travel Photography – Martinique

For 11 nights at the end of May 2018 I headed over to the island of Martinique which lies between the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. A French overseas department it is perhaps more known amongst the francophone world rather than the anglophone. However this shouldn’t take anything away from the beautiful island and its beaches. Late May is an ideal time to visit as the school holidays are over in France and the hurricane season is still a few […]

Landscape and Travel Photography – Le Marche, Italy

The region of Le Marche in eastern Italy is not somewhere that is on a lot of people’s bucket list. It’s little discovered by a lot of people but if you take the time to investigate what this beautiful region has to offer then you’ll be hooked. Personally, I’ve had it on my own bucket list for a long time. Ever since I came across images of the city of Urbino I’ve been wanting to get there. Getting there is […]

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 […]

Woodland Photography – A beginner’s guide

Woodland photography is one of the hardest niches of landscape photography that beginner’s struggle with. A tangle of branches; trunks and leaves has many wondering where to actually point their camera. Do they even take an mage at all. In my latest vlog I give some guidance on how you can approach woodland. The first part starts in a managed woodland near to home. Managed in the sense that the trees are planted in symmetrical rows thus making it easier […]

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 […]

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 […]

Travel Photography in Rome, Italy

From the 29th May to 1st June 2017 I visited Rome for the fourth time. Excessive? Absolutely not! I like to get the best out of a city that I can and if that means multiple visits then so be it. Even now after this short stay I still feel that I am only scratching the surface of the Eternal City. The vlog show some of what I do during my time as a working travel stock photographer. Creating time […]
