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 […]

How I Photographed Osaka and Tokyo

For the early part of February 2019 I spent 12 days between two Japanese cities. Osaka had already been visited in November of 2018 but Tokyo was a new one for me. Both cities offer many observation points both open and closed and its these which attracted me as I wanted to time lapse them as best I could. As always though the weather was a challenge but that is what you have to put up with at times. In […]

How to Blend Exposures in Photoshop for Landscape and Travel Photographers

Learning how to blend exposures easily in Adobe Photoshop needn’t be a challenge. From simple exposure blending using the gradient tool to more advanced exposure blending techniques, Adobe Photoshop provides us with a variety of ways and means to blend two images together. This week’s vlog isn’t just a case of following along but I also explain some of the workings of the techniques so you understand the techniques in full.

Gloves for Winter photography – Vallerret Photography Gloves Review

What’s the best gloves for winter photography? I don’t know how many pairs of gloves that I’ve gone through. Nice expensive gloves from outdoor shops to a cheapish pair of gloves from a garden store where I could remove part of the glove to access my fingers. But in every case they just didn’t do the job in hand. The job that I need to do as a landscape and travel photographer means that I need the use of my […]

How to edit LANDSCAPE photos with Adobe Lightroom & Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop form the backbone of any landscape or travel photographer’s work. The majority of use either or them or both in conjunction with one another. In this week’s vlog I wanted to show some of the processing techniques that I do in order to create a finished file. And I say some as there just wasn’t enough time to show everything that you “could” do to an image. Post processing is a personal thing. Everyone has […]

Travel Photography – Japan Autumn 2018

The 17th to 29th November 2018 saw me travel half way across the World to Japan. To Osaka to be more precise. During 12 days I found autumn colour aplenty in Kyoto. Amazing cityscapes in Osaka. A beautiful lake with many temples and a strategically placed torii gate as well as going to the island of Miyajima. Now, as it was my first time there I was concentrating more on my work rather than vlogging. So this is a half […]

Travel Photography – Summer in Tuscany

After the Dolomites came Tuscany. But not the famous area of the Val d’Orcia or even into Siena an Florence. Nope we decided to head to the coastline staying near to Pisa. Tuscany is of course famous for the aforementioned Val d’Orcia and cities such as Florence but there are other places to see. Pisa is renowned for its leaning tower and Piazza Miracoli is jammed with people doing selfies where they appear to be holding up the tower. But […]
