Video: Big Wild Sleepout 2016 Behind-The-Scenes

Last month, in this post, I showed you the completed short film that I produced to mark the RSPB’s Big Wild Sleepout 2016. If you listen to the podcast, you’ll know that I also shared some on-location commentary with you in this episode, too. Whilst out and about filming that, I also shot a bunch of behind-the-scenes […]

Video: Big Wild Sleepout 2016

Three weeks ago, in this post, I told you about an event organised by the RSPB, called the Big Wild Sleepout. At the time, I hadn’t decided exactly on where I would go or what I would do to mark the occasion. I actually headed off to a woodland for one night of hammock camping. Whilst […]

Episode #214: Making A Big Wild Sleepout Film

This week: I’m talking about what I got up to for this year’s RSPB Big Wild Sleepout. To mark the occasion, I thought it would be fun to make a short film about enjoying a spot of hammock camping in a forest. All said and done, I had an incredibly productive time – and in this week’s show, […]

Episode #175 – Initial Tests For A Video Podcast

This week: I’m on location, discussing initial tests for a video version of the podcast. I recently asked whether you would also like to see a video version of the podcast each week. The response was unanimous – it was a definite ‘yes’ – so I’ve now begun my initial tests, working through the logistics of how […]

Video: Giles On The Business Of Photography

Earlier this year, I was interviewed on video about the business of photography and what it takes to carry out my activities on a day-to-day basis. I first told you about the Q&A in this post, where I shared a few of the behind-the-scenes pictures from that day. Well, some months on, I’ve now been […]

Video: The Writer’s Tarp

A lot of you will be aware that whenever I head out on the hill or into woodland, I always pack my lightweight tarp. It is such a versatile piece of kit and offers great protection from the elements – whether that be sun, rain, wind, snow, whatever. I’ll be writing in greater detail about […]

Video: Easy Jetboil Cooking

Ok, so here’s a quick video for you – something that I’ve been sat on for a while, just waiting to find the time to put together. When it comes to keeping well fed and watered whilst out on location (for example, when camping, location scouting or day-hiking), it’s always nice to have hot food […]

Episode #104 – Seizing The Moment

This week: I’m on a bit of a high, talking about making the most of great opportunities when they arise. By seizing the moment, getting off our backsides and making most of the conditions available to us when the odds are set against us, we’re often pleasantly surprised by just what we can produce – […]

Episode #103 – Snow, Twigs, Shelter, Filming

This week: I’m taking you behind the scenes of my latest Test/Review preview video. What you see in my videos is, of course, the finished, polished end result. But often, a lot more goes on during production than you might imagine. This week’s show gives you a glimpse of some of the challenges I faced […]

First Look – Lowepro Rover Pro 45L AW Backpack (Video)

So, if you’ve been keeping an eye on my Facebook and Twitter activities over recent days, you’ll know that I headed out into the snow-covered woodland for a spot of filming. Specifically, I wanted to put together the video you see here – an introduction to a product which I will be giving the Test/Review […]

Make This Your Autumn/Winter Of Adventure

There can be nothing worse in the world of outdoor photography than to have the desire to get out into the fresh air to capture great images, only to face constraints which hold you back. Sounds like a profound sound bite, doesn’t it? Maybe you’d like to quote me on that one day – but […]

In The True Spirit Of The Games

With London 2012 coming to a close this evening, now is a great time to reflect on the achievements of many a great athlete. As you’d expect, there have been countless highs and probably just as many lows, all of which have produced stand-out moments for any number of reasons. What took me by surprise, […]
