Running Around NZ One of the added bonuses of being in New Zealand is the walking trails. My wife and I aren’t walkers typically, but we are runners. My wife runs a comfortable 6 minute mile (and under) over 10km, whereas I kind of plod along slowly, just enjoying myself. Back in Korea there was […]

That Wanaka Tree

The Most Photographed Tree in the World? We went to the beautiful town of Wanaka for 2 days, not to take photos, but to see my wife’s brother who has been living there for years. I’ve never really been interested in taking photos of the Wanaka tree. I’ve seen some very nice images of it, […]

Sunset at Motukiekie Beach

Taking a Dangerous Risk This wonderful location is one of the main reasons I came to New Zealand. For years I’ve wanted to capture a dynamic seascape with those lovely starfish (I’m not sure if these are starfish, so apologies if I’m wrong), and water cutting through the narrow gullies. It took 7 days for […]

Back Shooting It feels wonderful to be out shooting regularly, especially in a country so immensely beautiful as New Zealand. After an intense period of recording YouTube tutorials, developing Raya Pro and publishing the Mastering Raya Pro course, I was itching to go out and shoot. I’m sure you know the feeling. When you’re in […]

I’ve been fairly quiet on the internet for the past few months, not posting on my blog or social media, because I’ve been working hard to bring some awesome updates to Raya Pro, and develop a comprehensive course, called ‘Mastering Raya Pro‘, showing users how to use its powerful tools with ease. The course teaches […]

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 Long Exposure
2 years, 5 months ago 6

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 […]

Legendary Cormorant Fishermen At Blue Hour

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. And who would blame […]

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 […]
