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, […]

Why We Need Microadventures

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about how/why so many people are couped up all week, surrounded by glass and concrete, essentially slaves to their respective lifestyles. For some, the restrictions will be self-imposed, for one reason or another – although work commitments at the hands of ‘The Man’ are repeatedly cited as reasons why […]

Make It Count

I’d like to share another find with you today… Yes, it’s another video and no, it’s not about photographing women in bikinis on the beach! I’m not going to say any more, other than quoting Casey Neistat’s exact words as they appear at the start. But I think this sends out some good messages relating […]

Caine’s Arcade

Every now and then, I come a cross a person, a video, a picture, a song or some other kind of content which makes me stop and think. Doesn’t have to be for a particularly dramatic reason, just a certain quality which triggers the little grey cells. Whilst going about my online activities this morning, […]

Episode #61 – Snow, Drift HD

This week: I’m outdoors once again, making the most of the photographic opportunities available in one of my local woodlands. It’s not often that we get snow in this part of the world, so when the UK had a small covering at the end of last week, I just had to take advantage. Whilst there, I […]

Camping, Cameras And Cold – The Video

Back in podcast Episode #57 – Camping, Cameras And Cold a few weeks ago, I told you how I’d just spent a couple of days camping in Dorset, testing kit and taking photographs on location. Well, whilst out and about there, I also recorded some video on the Kodak PlaySport Zx5. Here’s a short edit […]

Test/Review – Peli 1510 Case

Throughout the course of the year, I’ve been extensively testing the Peli 1510 roller case, putting it through a whole range of assignments, conditions and locations. It’s faced everything from the relative safety of being wheeled along railway concourses en route for corporate city assignments, to being thrown in the back of the car and […]

Office Cat Launches TAP YouTube Channel

If you happened to head over to The Active Photographer Facebook page this morning, you would have seen a video update featuring your friend and mine, Office Cat. This was just a short affair – 24 seconds in total – and was shot by way of further testing the Kodak Zx5 video camera in poor-light […]
