Capturing The Last of the Autumn in the Creuse

Last week my plan was capturing the last of the autumn in the Creuse. However with just a few kilometres of my journey to do the back brakes on my car failed. For safety reasons as I was two and a half hour from where I live I decided to finish the vlog very quickly. It’s not the most ideal of situations but these things do happen. Next week’s vlog is going to be a little more of the Creuse […]

Failed Astrophotography – I Deleted My Images

On 12 June 2021 I took my kids out to the beautiful landscapes of the Creuse. The intention was to create some astrophotography as they had been bugging me to see the night sky. The Creuse offers superb viewing of the stars as it’s a very rural area of central France. The evening started off really nice and I had taken some long awaited shots of the setting sun on the old castle. But sadly the evening disappointed us as […]

How I Recce Landscape Photography

How I Recce Landscape Photography is a warts and all look at what goes through my mind when I see a scene. What I am thinking with regards to the composition and then execution of the final image. What you see here isn’t an image that I deem a success but it’s useful to at least try and make a scene work. You just have to get out there at times and see if these things are worth pursuing or […]

Landscape Photography Travel Photography Bad Weather in the Loire Valley

Bad weather. We’ve all heard the expression there is no bad light but I personally beg to differ. My first vlog back in the Loire Valley of France was blighted by bad weather. The weather forecasters on various sites were showing broken cloud and sunny spells but it was anything but what they showed. In this week’s vlog I took just one image because that was all that was worth taking. Honestly, I would prefer to be showing you all […]

6 Tips for Long Lens Telephoto Landscape Photography

When it comes to landscape photography most people will head for the wide angle lenses in their bag. But a long/ telephoto lens can add an edge to your landscape photography. The telephoto lens allows you to crop tight into your subject. To really draw the eye into the image. You can of course pick our details but whatever you decide as a landscape photographer you should absolutely have one either a 70-200mm or a 100-400mm lens in your bag. […]

Salisbury Cathedral – Landscape Photography Locations

The city of Salisbury is my home city. A city which I grew up in and know like the back of my hand. And this is especially so when it comes to photographing the beautiful cathedral. There are 4 locations in total. One of them you’ll have to research where I was but it shouldn’t be too difficult. But this is a vlog I shouldn’t have been making. Right now I should be back in France but circumstances state that […]

Landscape Photography | Bad Weather Days

Landscape Photography and bad weather. It happens to us all. You weather watch. You think all is going to be good but Mother Nature decides otherwise. 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 | Winter in Arctic Norway

Norway is a landscape photographer’s paradise. With its beautiful fjords and high mountains, in winter it becomes a beautiful sight for any photographer when snow blankets the landscape. Back in February I had an opportunity to go above the arctic circle starting first in Tromsø before heading a little southwards to the island of Senja. The latter is less visited than the more popular Lofoten Islands which means at times you have the place to yourself as a photographer. So […]
