Vanishing Point… in the Outback of Australia


This is one of the roads I was describing in my previous post... long, straight and when you're driving along it seemingly never ending. I remember on this particular road heading towards lighting ridge, driving for around 3 hours straight (pun intended), the road was flat, the sun was shining, continuing to drive towards the vanishing point when all of a sudden the car went

More Bluebells in Ashridge


The weather has been fantastic in the UK for the past couple of weeks, very warm for the time of year and no complaints from me.  As it was bluebell time I decided it was a good idea to head back towards Ivinghoe to visit a favourite spot for shooting blubells just along the ridgeway.  Last year I was there and captured the shot below,

Frost on East Lockinge


This shot was taken on a winter trip to Didcot, Oxfordshire. As I was driving around Didcot I noticed that the majority of the surrounding area had a very slight amount of frost, mainly to the East, South and North of Didcot Power Station, but to the West it was literally painted white with a very heavy layer of frost on every blade of grass,

To Posterous or not to Posterous, that is the question…


I've been looking at different ways that I can manage my social media and I've found some pretty good solutions out there...  This is my first post to posterous and I'll be interested to see how this works, I've linked it to every account that Posterous supports, that I own. This included linkedin, facebook fan page, twitter, tumblr, wordpress, youtube, delicious and a couple of

Ipad – The Photographers Toolkit – TPE; The Photographer’s Ephemeris


A lot of people will know the photographer's ephemeris, it's a very well known and powerful app for assessing the best time of the year to visit specific landscape locations and get shots with the sun in exactly the right position in relation to the landscape.  It takes all of the guess work from shooting on location and increases the chance for success.  The example

Ipad – The photographers toolkit? Part 1


This is the first part in a multi part blog article about the Ipad as a photographers toolkit. I've been a convert to the Ipad platform for a couple of months now.  I used to love my Acer NetBook on the road, it was the perfect tool for being out and about doing landscape photography. Surfing the net, doing research and tying that back into where

Portrait Session – Pippa


Last week I had the pleasure of doing a shoot for Richard and Ange who wanted some shots of their 8 month old daughter, Pippa.  I spent around 3 hours with the family, 2 hours for the main shoot including bath time, 30 minutes for her eventually to fall asleep and a quick 30 minute shoot once she was asleep.I'd already been around to the

Three – Huawei E585 MiFi


This weekend I purchased a new gadget from Three, the UK mobile network.  It is the Huawei E585 MiFi Device on a pay as you go contract.  You may be asking what MiFi is, well instead of a dongle sticking out of your USB port on your laptop when you want a 3G network on the move, this device is a personal Wireless Network, so

I’m sure I’ve been here before…


On Saturday evening my wife and I decided to head to the coast and she kindly agreed to let me chase the sun for sunset. It's not that fun when you're not into photography like me driving around trying to find that perfect place.  We set off with the intent of going to Swanage, with the idea that the sun would be coming down around

The Natural History Museum…


I had a recent trip to the Natural History Museum with a friend who had picked up a Canon 7D. Love the camera, but I'll definitely be sticking with my 50d for the time being.The journey to the museum from my house is pretty straight forward by car, but when you get there, parking is a completely different matter. It took me about 20 minutes
