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 [...]

Wild Camping Photography

By |2017-03-08T15:02:39+00:00March 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+00:00February 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 [...]

2016 – My Year In Review – Or is it?!

By |2017-01-05T17:43:46+00:00January 5th, 2017|Landscape Photography|

So, I'm a little late to the party writing this blog. It's now the 5th of January and no doubt you've seen and read many photographer's blogs or posts on their favourite images of 2016. The truth is, I was away in Scotland until the 2nd January and since then I have been trying to [...]

Autumn at an End

By |2016-12-08T22:42:18+00:00December 2nd, 2016|Other Areas, Peak District, Peak District Photography, Peak District Photography Workshop, Photography Workshops|

So it's now December and I think I can officially say Autumn is at an end. It's been quite a strange one this year and I have seen a lot of people saying it's the best Autumn for many years, some claiming a decade! I'm not quite sure I agree with that. First off, Autumn [...]
