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.

Depths of the Shallow

Depths of the Shallow

Shallow depth of field is a powerful technique to have in your creative tool kit. It’s not just about funky portraits either, it’s good for almost every genre of photography.

Dark & Moody Food Photography

Mastering the art of Dark and Moody food photography, and going beyond the basics of 'black box' styling. Dip into the velvet shadows and embrace your darker moods. Warning - this article may contain traces of very delicious dark chocolate.
Intimately Portrait

Intimately Portrait

When deciding to shoot your portraits with intense intimacy, the essential element is to get closer rather than shoot with a long lens. We want to fill the frame only with that person and the nuances that make them unique.

Uluru for Photographers

This magnificent monolith in the heart of Australia's Red Center is one of the world's most inspiring locations for a photographer to visit. Be warned however, it is also a subject that demands care and respect.
Trails in the West

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.

Careers and Ideas

There's more to photography than just the camera. Looking at the bigger picture is good for your development.

Putting The Photo First

Putting The Photo First

I believe that the photo should be more important than the photographer. When I travel with camera in hand my objective to achieve something wonderful in the way of photography. I want to make a beautiful image, something more amazing than anything I have done before. It’s about the photograph. It’s about the act of creation.
Belonging

Reproccessing

Reproccessing

Ten years ago I travelled to Rajasthan and shot a series of images on the first iteration of the Canon 5D. In some ways ten years is not a long time. Creatively however, ten years is an entirely different universe.
Anything But Now

Anything But Now

The problem with living the life of a photographer is that you so rarely get a chance to live in the now. Everything is past or present and very little in between.
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.
