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 […]

By way of introduction, I thought I’d put together a quick ‘first look’ video, running through the key features, with the full write-up to follow in due […]

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 – […]
