Landscape and Travel Photography in Vietnam

In mid-September 2019 I was invited to photograph northern and central Vietnam for a Vietnamese travel company called Ciao Travel (http://ciaotravels.com/). Now I didn’t get a lot of vlogging done as I was too busy taking everything in. It’s a country I had wanted to visit for a few years so it was for me a dream come true.

Landscape Photography in the Lake District with Paul Thomson

On the 7th and 8th December 2019 I was up in the Lake District national park in the north west of England. But I wasn’t alone and on the 8th I was joined by my good friend Paul Thomson as well as Dick Coulthard for good measure. The weather didn’t really play ball on either day but we didn’t let that deter us. We did our utmost to get the best out of the locations we visited. The nice thing […]

How I Got Stuck in Vietnam

On the 28 September 2019 I was due to fly back from Da Nang to Paris via Hanoi. But what happened at Da Nang set up a series of events that has quite literally changed my life. The back story to this is that I had flown into Vietnam with my Macbook Pro laptop. A laptop that, at the time and unbeknown to me, was the subject of a recall. With security bearing down on me at Da Nang I […]

Landscape Photography in the Netherlands

In mid-August 2019 I was commissioned to go to the Netherlands to do some photography for a commercial client in the tourism industry. This is the results of those two days. Originally, the idea for the shoot came about in 2018 but neither the client nor I had the chance to catch up with each other. So in June 2019 we started to plan out how I could get over to the Netherlands in the best possible weather for the […]

Landscape Photography | Exploring France | Sarthe

Central France has some gorgeous scenery that just doesn’t get photographed very often at all. The department of Sarthe is one of those areas that doesn’t get a huge influx of tourists which is nice as it means you’re not jostling for the best spots to take photos. As well as the landscape, there are also a number of historic buildings that are worth visiting such as the abbey at Solesmes and the Beaux Villages de France of Sainte Suzanne. […]

Mongolia Landscapes and Eagle Hunters

From the 13th to the 23rd March 2019 I spent my time in the vast landscapes of Mongolia. One of the most sparsely populated countries on the planet. Due to unforeseen weather conditions the group I was in spent a night in Hustai National Park with a local family. But it was definitely a beautiful place to visit and it’s where the vlog starts. One night later and we took our flight to Ulgii in Western Mongolia. More Kazakhstan than […]

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 […]

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 […]
