Where To Live? My wife and I are at a crossroad in our lives. It is time to create a place called home – a place of comfort to return to after long photography trips. We aren’t location independent at the moment. We have an apartment in South Korea. But since our stay in S. […]

Morning Metropolis

Morning Metropolis As I mentioned in the previous image, Shanghai Looking Up, we arrived in Shanghai during a typhoon. I was able to shoot during brief breaks in the rain. Sometimes I had the luxury of sitting in a bar terrace with a cold beer, waiting for the rain to stop. Other times I was […]

Tron, Shanghai After getting directions off Simon Bond for the location you see above, we set off to scope it out. As soon as we arrived at the front door of the apartment block, a security guard emphatically said ‘you’re not getting up there’. I’d read that the locals were annoyed by the increasing number […]

Cormorant Fishermen I’ve wanted to photograph these famous fishermen for a long time. What many photographers don’t say, mainly because they don’t want to spoil the illusion, is that these guys are no longer fishermen. Since they make more money from tourists, they gave up their trade to become professional models. Often, in photos of […]

Shanghai Looking Up

Joining Instagram, Being 500px’s Guest Editor & A Photowalk I finally joined Instagram this week. I had considered joining sooner, but I honestly couldn’t bring myself to crop an image just for social media. I’m sure many would disagree, but we go so far to capture and create our images, carefully composing and cropping (lots […]

Sunrise on fog in Guilin An hour after touching down in Guilin airport, we were hiking up our first location, Cuiping. Although the hike wasn’t the most difficult, or longest, the heat and humidity seemed to add a few kilos to my bag. The muddy, narrow path eventually led us to stunning views across valley, […]

Off To China I have a two-week China trip starting on Monday. So, as always, it’s a busy time for preparation. But I made a quick tutorial for today’s image. Raya Pro users can see the blending process using Raya Pro. And non-Raya Pro users can see how I like to create a more advanced […]

In The Clouds

Time to upgrade some photography gear The next 12 months is going to be an extremely exciting time for me, photographically. I expect to be on the road for around 7-8 months, shooting in climates ranging from hot and dry to cool and wet. I decided that now’s the time to start upgrading/replacing/buying new gear […]

On Top of the Zenith Five attempts over the last year and a half to get on the roof of one of these buildings, and I finally managed it. It was worth the perseverance. I was a little bit worried about the conditions beforehand, as the government had issued high wind warnings. As we exited […]

Raya Pro Workflow Tutorial
4 months, 4 weeks ago 9

For the past couple of months I’ve been reasonably absent from the Internet. One of the main reasons for that is Raya Pro. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this digital blending workflow panel. Since creating it, I haven’t stopped using Raya Pro in my workflow. I’ve even gone over old images […]
