Silly Signs and Roadside Products in Scandinavia

Posted on 29th January 2015 - 0 Comments

I have been meaning to do this for some time, but now I think we are near the end, so it was time for an article that has been three years in the making. Many photographers highlight there persistence in the landscape to get the best photos, well this represents commitment and observation to a new level. On my Scandinavian tours with Antony Spencer, the clients and I spend considerable time researching and hunting out products in roadside garages. This has become a new sport and although it began in garages and shops, its now extended signs and signposts. Some of...

Fotobuzz - New Articles

Posted on 28th January 2015 - 0 Comments

I am beginning a series of articles over at Fotobuzz for the next 12 months, to get subscribers to train their lenses to the grand landscapes. Fotobuzz is the brainchild of fellow Canon gun Andy Rouse and Andrew James. Andy doesn't need any introduction, being one of the UK's top professional wildlife photographers for many years. Andrew has had one of the longest lasting careers in photographic editorial, being the editor of Practical Photography before departing last year.

I made the Wall Street Journal

Posted on 27th January 2015 - 0 Comments

Well surprising to me I made the Wall Street Journal. Ok, ok... not directly, but its part of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 Exhibition promotions, as the competition is making its way to the USA. It's really flattering to have the first image in the sequence of 12.

Western Morning News on Sunday Feature

Posted on 21st January 2015 - 0 Comments

Over the last few weeks I have been in contact with a bastion of the South West - The Western Morning News. After the coverage I received from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition reached the newspaper, they uncovered I was based in the South West, covered a brief news story on my success and then interviewed me for a full article which was published in the Sunday edition of the newspaper.

How to Use Twitter

Posted on 20th January 2015 - 0 Comments

Fed up with Facebook? I sure am. I use Twitter in preference and although you may be happy the way things are, here is a short video on how to organise the massive amount of online information we are bombarded with, by using a simple method - LISTS.

EP03 - Coffee with David Ward

Posted on 14th December 2014 - 0 Comments

I caught up with David Ward rather unexpectedly at the Rutland Bird Fair in late August 2014 where we were both working, which is surprising as neither of us are bird photographers.

EP01 - Coffee With Chris Davies Web Design

Posted on 16th June 2014 - 0 Comments

In a new series of interviews using the fabulous Canon Legria Mini X, I caught up with my web designer Chris Davies, a real legend in the world of photographic website design, to talk about his services, my new web site, web design in general and the future of photography sites on the Internet.

Photographing Dawn at the Taj Mahal

Posted on 13th June 2014 - 0 Comments

Although perhaps it seems obvious at first, this beautiful building is not all that easy to photograph. The restrictions that are presented are the ones that you would expect in high profile architectural icons. The biggest problem is timing and of course it's crowds of people, as well as the usual tripod ban. The world has gone a bit tripod crazy these days but it's totally understandable as even low price consumer digital SLR cameras are capable of shooting extremely high ISOs with professional quality results. In this case, I used a Canon 6D, propped up on the...

A Very Fast Memory Stick - Sandisk Cruzer Extreme 32gb

Posted on 13th June 2014 - 0 Comments

Is yours lost in a drawer somewhere or gathering dust, completely full of 3 year old Word documents? They are not the best of things to rely on in a data heavy world and you certainly realise the speed difference when you plug in a FireWire / USB3 hard drive. If like me you have been plagued with cheap sluggish memory sticks and convinced they are a poor idea, then here's the answer that I found on a reasonable budget. After reading an article at UK Hardware, I spent £24 on a SanDisk Extreme 32 GB memory stick and I have to say I'm extremely impressed with the...
