Isle of Harris and Lewis Photography Trip in our Campervan

By |2018-04-05T14:50:21+00:00April 5th, 2018|Isle of Harris and Lewis, Scotland, Uncategorized|

Back in Ferbruary, me and my better half, Sarah went away for a two week trip to the Isle of Harris and Lewis in our VW T5 Campervan for a holiday and of course to do some photography. I first stumbled across photos from Luskentyre about 5 or 6 years ago and knew instantly that [...]

Torridon (Loch Clair and Russel Burn)

By |2018-01-24T20:06:55+00:00January 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+00:00January 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+00:00September 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+00:00September 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+00:00September 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+00:00June 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+00:00April 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 [...]

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 [...]
