Inspiration and information to help you make the most of your travel and photography

Practical Philosophies

The art of photography is not about the camera, it's about what you do with it. Change your attitude to change your photography.

Into The Light

Into The Light

Nothing excites my creative eye more than pointing a lens directly into the sun late in the afternoon. Capturing the shafts, shimmy and seduction of light as it flares across the lens is the stuff of magic.
Learning to Love the Digital Darkroom

Learning to Love the Digital Darkroom

Not spending a little time processing your photos is the modern equivalent to collecting a bunch of prints from the chemist. If you’re not committing to process those RAW files then you’re only exploring half of their creative potential. The digital darkroom is where a world of possible interpretations can be brought to life.
The Photographic Paradox

The Photographic Paradox

Each photograph is a stepping stone on a journey. We think of photography as freezing time and capturing the moment. But what are we really holding onto and where do all those pixels end their journey?

Trails in the West

This is the third evolution of my star trails guides, a small refinement but one I plan to use quite a lot in future. This feature adds onto the previous two guides which go deeper into the technique of capturing and stacking a star trail sequence.

Seeing the World of Beauty

I'd rather immerse myself in what makes the world lovely instead of what makes me sad. Any day of the year is a good day for this.

Inspiring destinations that offer something unique for photographers. I love sharing the beauty in this world, and sharing why I think you might want to see it too.

Snow and Light in Norway

Snow and Light in Norway

Snow hides everything you don’t want to see. It silently arrives in the depth of night and fills in the gaps, wipes away the footsteps from yesterdays photographers and leaves you a clean slate to work with every morning. Snow clones out the messy bits better than any Photoshop session.
Why We Take Photos

Why We Take Photos

On a journey through the wide open spaces of South Australia and the Outback, I am reminded of why we take photos and how lucky we are to be able to share the beauty of the world.
Quiet Moments with a Thunder Dragon

Quiet Moments with a Thunder Dragon

The people of Bhutan refer to their nation as the land of the Thunder Dragon, a title that evokes images of fire breathing monsters and villages fleeing from destruction. The reality is something far more peaceful.
