    Episode #231: When Things Don’t Quite Go To Plan

    This week: I’m talking about the need to make alternative arrangements. This week’s show has a dual purpose. On the one hand I’m discussing the matter of how we work around situations which don’t quite go to plan – and at the same time, I’m bringing you up to date with my current activities. Some quick […]

    Episode #230: Volkswagen Photo Location Scouting

    This week: I’m doing a spot of location scouting for a forthcoming photo shoot. In conjunction with Volkswagen and my good friend, musician Tom Kent, there’s a lot to think about in advance. It’s important to get a head start in order to address multiple considerations – from vehicle access and lighting setups, through to any health and […]

    Why You Need To Slow Down Your Photography

    Have you noticed how life moves at an ever-increasing pace these days? Of course you have – it’s hard not to. The same is true with the world of photography, especially when it comes to the development of technology. As we progress and evolve, a strange thing is happening – whilst embracing the ‘latest and […]

    This week: I’m returning to the water, in search of some elusive pictures. In last week’s show, you heard me talking through a series of images as I shot them down by the water’s edge. This time around, you join me as I revisit that area, taking advantage of the foggy conditions which I really needed […]

    Episode #228: Early Morning Shoreline Photography

    This week: I’m down by the water’s edge, capturing the early-morning light. My take on this set of images for a feature article was slightly different than one might expect. Rather than shooting wide angle sunrise pictures, I favoured a longer lens and concentrated on the more selective details within the scene in front of me. […]

    Episode #226: Discussing Client Photography Needs

    This week: I’m heading back from a meeting where a client’s photography requirements were discussed. The process of collaboration between a photographer and client is often a very fluid one, starting with the very first conversation where details are discussed and a plan begins to form. Working out what is required versus what can be achieved whilst […]

Video: Sunrise Shipwreck Photography

I was recently going through a bunch of files which, for one reason or another, never did see the light of day. In the mix was some behind-the-scenes footage from a trip I took down to the shoreline one cold morning. My goal on that occasion was to capture a shot or two of a sunken ship […]

A few days before submitting a recent article about shoreline photography, I headed out to see if I could capture some additional illustrative pictures, to give me a few options alongside the shots I knew I already had. Some quick links to things mentioned in […]
