Landscape Photography Chateaux of the Loire Part 002

The Châteaux of the Loire are famous worldwide and rightly so. From old medieval fortresses such as those at Chinon to more stately castles dotted around the area they make great subjects for both landscape and travel photography. In this episode I show you three castles in the Indre-et-Loire department of central France. All of them easily photographed from the roadside or can be visited. With this series I aim to introduce to some of the well known as well […]

Landscape Photography Chateaux of the Loire Part 001

The Châteaux of the Loire are famous worldwide and rightly so. From old medieval fortresses such as those at Chinon to more stately castles dotted around the area they make great subjects for both landscape and travel photography.

Do be aware though that not all of them accessible to the public and remain behind high […]

Landscape Photography | Exploring France | In the Footsteps of Balzac

For today’s vlog Exploring France with Landscape Photography we take a journey along a trail dedicated to the famous French writer Honoré de Balzac. Born in 1799 in Tours he lived in Paris but would come back around here to write. The area providing inspiration for the novel Lys dans la Vallée or Lilly in the Valley. The trail that I came across pointed out a number of places such as towns; castles and old mills. So I thought let’s […]

Landscape Photography | Exploring France | Local Area

In this episode of Landscape Photography Exploring France I take a quick look around my Local Area in the Loire Valley of central France. Normally with great weather I’d be inspired to spend the whole day out there. To exploring and finding things new but I just wasn’t feeling it today. You know, it does happen at times. Sometimes that spark just isn’t there. At the time of writing I should have been finishing up a photography tour of Japan […]

This isn’t the great vlog I have ever done but I’d filmed it so thought that I may as well just put it out there. I intended this to be another video showing you all the Loire Valley but the weather just did not play the entire day. What can you do? Not a […]

How to Do Fine Art Landscape Photography…Or is it?

How to do Fine Art Landscape Photography. It’s a question that a lot of landscape photographer’s are asking. It’s also a subject of great debate as to what exactly is “fine art” landscape photography. This video is my attempt to, let’s say, parody those videos that are teaching you “fine art” landscape photography. I say this because the overriding thing you’ll notice with those videos is the amount of times flat grey skies appear along with a 10 stop neutral […]

Landscape Photography | Exploring France Cher

Exploring France through landscape photography sees me in the department of Cher. The autumn colour is in full blaze in the vineyards but the weather at first light held me back for a while.

With each vlog in the series you’re going to see how I photographed the department that I visited and how […]
