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 […]

How To Use A Big Stopper (10 stop ND filter) for Landscape Photography

The 10 stop Neutral Density filter or also known as the Big Stopper is one of those filters that gives a love or hate final image. Becoming ever more popular over the last 8 or 9 years you’d be hard pushed to find a landscape photographer that hasn’t used one. This extremely dense filter will elongate the final exposure from seconds into minutes giving a surreal look to the resulting photograph. Blurred water and misty seas along with streaky clouds […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Vlog update

It’s been a while since I posted a vlog so I thought that I’d do a video on what I’ve been up to as well as what’s coming up. The summer holidays are always difficult as family time will always come before work in the majority of cases. During the latter half of the year there are a number of things coming up such as Ireland; editorial photography in the form of the Paris Tours cycle race and the Dolomites.

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 […]

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 […]

Loire Valley châteaux

On the 17th and 20th May 2017 I went to two of the most well known châteaux in the Loire Valley as well as the small village of Chédigny. Chenonceau is known for straddling the river Cher and such historical figures as Catherine de Medici and Diane de Poitiers. During the 1st World War it was used as a hospital and during the 2nd World War was the border between free and occupied France. Chédigny is known for its rose […]
