Torridon (Loch Clair and Russel Burn)

By | 2018-01-24T20:06:55+00:00 January 24th, 2018|Landscape Photography, Scotland|

Over the Christmas I made my first proper visit to the Torridon area. I made a fleeting visit driving the coastal road last year and watched the sunset over the Isle of Skye from Bealach Na Ba but we carried on to Asssynt after that. It had been a place I had wanted to visit [...]

Beinn A ‘Chrulaiste Sunrise

By | 2018-01-18T15:20:27+00:00 January 18th, 2018|Landscape Photography, Scotland|

Beinn a' Chrulaiste, a mountain I have been trying to capture for a few years now. I originally stumbled on the mountain about 4 years ago or so, I think from a walking routes website. I was looking for good mountains in the area with great views and Beinn a' Chrulaiste came up as a [...]

The Boxing Gloves – Kinder Scout

By | 2017-09-18T16:23:11+00:00 September 18th, 2017|Peak District, Peak District Photography|

In a quest to keep revisiting locations I recently went back up to the Boxing Gloves on Kinder Scout. This amazing formation has weathered over millennia to create a formation that we can now associate something with. If you look closely, you can see the outline of a boxing glove or two. I have probably [...]

An Incredible Sunset on Derwent Edge on the Salt Cellar

By | 2017-09-07T17:13:39+00:00 September 7th, 2017|Peak District|

Quite a short blog today I think, but I just felt that my recent trip to the Salt Cellar was worth a mention and worth the blog. So a few weeks ago I arranged with Stephen Elliott (another local Peak District photographer) to meet up. I have known Stephen a long time now, probably around [...]

The Rocking Stones and Crow Stones

By | 2017-09-06T09:38:32+00:00 September 6th, 2017|Peak District, Peak District Photography|

The Peak District offers up some of the most accessible hillside viewpoints in the country, getting up high and walking from the car is usually no problem. Of course, this means that on any given day, especially at the weekend, these viewpoints are likely to be busy. I've never been afraid of walking to my [...]

A visit to Northern Greece including Zagoria, Astraka Refuge and Meteora for photography

By | 2017-06-30T12:04:31+00:00 June 30th, 2017|Greece Photography|

Greece. The place of sun, sea and beaches right?! No, not always. Greece is actually a very mountainous country, especially the mainland. A lot of the mountains are typical Mediterranean, bushy and arid with not much in terms of features. However there are some distinctly amazing areas where the mountains differ a lot. One of [...]

Assynt Mini-Adventure

By | 2017-04-12T09:25:18+00:00 April 13th, 2017|Scotland, wild camping, Wild Camping Photography|

As part of an effort to try and expand my portfolio and research new locations for future workshops, I recently visited the amazing Assynt in North-West Scotland. I have been to Assynt twice before but as always with Scottish weather, you can never quite do as much as you like per trip. For those [...]

By | 2017-03-09T13:56:38+00:00 March 13th, 2017|Reviews|

Winter is almost over, so it may seem a little strange to be doing this review now but I got a pair of Vallerret Photography Gloves - Markhof Pro Model for Christmas and as with any review I like to try the product out extensively before writing my review and opinions. The review may be [...]

Wild Camping Photography

By | 2017-03-08T15:02:39+00:00 March 9th, 2017|Landscape Photography, wild camping, Wild Camping Photography|

Today's blog is about one of my favourite ways to capture photography in stunning areas at sunrise and sunset, especially if they are harder to access. How you may ask? Well, it involves carrying quite a lot of weight up a mountain to sleep there for the night and hoping for the best! It is [...]

Benro TMA27C Tripod Review and B3 Ballhead Review

By | 2017-02-02T18:18:29+00:00 February 3rd, 2017|Reviews|

Today's blog post is a review of a tripod and head I have recently been sent by the kind guys at Benro. I just want to say first off, as with all my reviews I aim to keep it as honest as possible. If I think there's something wrong with a product, I will say [...]
