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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

Finistère, Brittany

During the week of 8th April to 15th April 2017 my family and I took a holiday to the department of Finistère in the region of Brittany in western France. Southern Finistère is known as “Little Cornwall” or Petit Cornouaille and if you’ve ever visited the south west coast of the United Kingdom then it will very similar both in terms of geology and also in terms of some of the architecture of houses in the villages. Each day we […]
