Posted in: New Zealand, Seascape

Settling at Home After a Long Absence Six months have passed since I penned the article Why I’m Giving Up Life On The Road, which received tens of thousands of readers. The topic, it would seem, is one of major interest among the photography community. I imagine, while many people are hoping to quit their […]

Dragon Eggs at Moeraki Boulders I just spent an hour writing this post, which was originally about the two recent ‘controversies’ in the photography community (Steve McCurry photoshopping his images, and someone copying Marc Adamus’ composition), where debates among photographers were heated. My post pretty much said, life’s too short to argue with a stranger […]

Sunrise At Nugget Point

Climbing the Point Climbing up to take this shot isn’t exactly mountain climbing, but it’s definitely a bit ropy, especially when doing it in the dark. You scramble up the side of the cliff, and then make your way ever upwards until you run low on bravery and choose your spot. At the point where […]

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 […]

The Easy Panel is Back Please note:  if you downloaded the Easy Panel early last week, we recommend you download and install it again. It was updated on Friday as some photographers had complained that the luminosity masks were generating very slowly. It is now up-to-speed and with some extra installation instructions! I’m thrilled to […]

A Lonely Lighthouse - Workflow Included

A Lonely Lighthouse We were running slightly late for sunrise on Sunday morning. It was dark. Most of my photography companions were heading out of the hotel toward the main path. I was being detained, unfortunately. As I walked down the stairs at the back of the group, I found I could no longer move. […]

New Journal 66 – Dunstanburgh Castle I’d arrived at Dunstanburgh castle just before sunset, 3 hours before my photographer buddies were due to join me in our hopeful hunt for the Aurora. I made a rather stupid decision. As I left the car I decided to keep my waterproof boots on rather than replacing them […]

New Journal 60 – Waiting in anticipation As the tide begins to recede, we wait. As the sun slowly rises, we wait. Uncertainty sits at the edge of our awareness. Yet, we’re here at this spot because we know that, no matter how slim the chances, something beautiful may unfold. Often it doesn’t and we’re […]
