I recently came across an article on the excellent photography site, Light Stalking. The article title is: How to Take the Stress Out of Image Editing When You’ve Got Tons of Photos to Edit. Although there is some very good advice for cutting down your workload, I found one quote particularly surprising: “For many a […]

A touch from the heavens The past two weeks have been a wonderful time for me to add to my current lifestyle. I’ve been working on the business side of things for a few months now, so I decided it was time to put extra emphasis onto my personal development. Waking up at the crack […]

We Are The Zenith Saturday evening was my 3rd attempt at getting on the helipad of one of Korea’s tallest buildings, We Are The Zenith, in Busan. The first two times I didn’t even make it to the elevator. This time, with a few new friends, we made our way through a side exit, found […]

I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to write a post about my camera gear…but, here it is. In the next few weeks I will be selling my backup Canon gear and replacing it with a smaller, lighter mirrorless setup. I received 100s of suggestions for mirrorless cameras on a facebook post recently. […]

Hong Kong – The Peak At 5pm we were standing on top of the observatory on Victoria Peak, looking out over the vastness that is Hong Kong. We were 2.5 hours early, claiming our spots before the hoards turned up. We weren’t allowed to sit, making our wait a little bit less comfortable. 2 hours […]

Golden Rays of an Eastern Sunrise There comes a point when a photographer begins to doubt the intentions of the weather gods. After four 4:00am wake ups, and four failed sunrise shoots, my faith was beginning to wane. As we slowly meandered to our usual spot, way up high on Victoria peak, it was too […]

Streaming Light Trails The drizzle and cloud greeted us once more on Victoria Peak at 4.30am this morning. This time we didn’t even take our cameras out. We sat for a couple of hours and watched the city wake up. Beboy was attacked by a 5-inch stick insect. I’m not sure ‘attacked’ is the right […]

The Heights of Hong Kong The sound of a 4:00am alarm call shuddered me to life. After 14 hours of travel, my body demanded more. But I knew I’d have to sit up instantly to fight off the temptations of a deep, much-needed sleep. I became instantly aware of the heat. We’d made the decision […]
