Test/Review: FIREPOT Meals By Outdoorfood

The worlds of photography and the outdoors are awash with ‘latest and greatest’ incarnations of tried-and-tested products. Claims such as “This camera sets a new benchmark for image quality” and “Our fabric offers the ultimate protection in all weathers” are nothing new.

Episode #237: Photographing Racton Monument

This week: I’m on location, shooting a specific picture for a magazine article. You’ll remember that a few weeks back, I went on an overnight camping trip, putting together a walking feature for a magazine.

Whilst out and about filming that, I also shot a bunch of behind-the-scenes […]

Gotta Love A Tarp

With every passing year that I’m involved in the glorious worlds of photography and the outdoors, I come to realise that there are some items of kit which I absolutely love. In each case, their appeal often boils down to the fact that they are a) practical and b) dependable. Queue the humble tarp, or […]
