Favourite images of 2019 – Landscape and Travel Photography

The year of 2019 was an incredibly busy one. Traversing the World from Europe to Asia and back again. Many miles traveled and many people and their cultures taken in.

This video is both a small showcase for some of the places I’ve been to as well as a look over what I feel […]

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/).

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.

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.

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.

One night later and we took our flight to Ulgii in Western Mongolia. More Kazakhstan than […]

Landscape Photography – Dolomites Autumn 2018 Part 2

*Note that I didn’t intend for this to be a simple film of the Dolomites. I did intend to vlog but just didn’t get the time. The 5th to 13th September 2018 saw me back in the Dolomites. Yes, for the 5th time I was photographing this mountainous area of northern Italy. Why? Because from the 19th to the 26th October 2019 I’ll be running a workshop there and I want to make sure that all the groundwork is done. […]
