Diving PNG

I was surprised today to see blog post from DeeperBlue on Diving Papua New Guinea, featuring one of my images from a trip my wife and I made there in 2006. We love PNG, and have dived at Kavieng, Kimbe Bay (Walindi), Milne Bay (Tawali) and Tufi. These are all amazing diving locations, and I…

Colourful Clarke Quay

Singapore is a colourful city. I didn't tropical business-hub to be so vibrant and vivid, so as a photographer I was delighted to experience not just the modern architecture mixed with Asian heritage, but also the colourful expression of city's colonial past. We explored the city mostly by foot, but a boat tour from Marina…

Apps for Photography

My iPhone, and to an extent my iPad, are really important parts of my seascape, landscape and urban photography. The iPhone itself makes for a good scouting camera, a good camera for a sneaky pano and a tool for making images of my image making. Its true power, however, lies in its abilities to assist…

Six Passengers

Famous for its spectacular coastline, seascapes and mountain vistas, life in Positano is literally built around the sea. The township is a year round magnet for tourists, and the crystal blue seas are a way that many get to and from the area, and are a major part of their enjoyment of it. Swimming, snorkelling,…

Stepping Up in Positano

Positano is known for many things - beaches, restaurants, bars, walks, magnificent scenery and more. Perhaps however it is most known for its many, many stairs. The town really has only two roads - the main highway the winds between Sorrento and Amalfi that cuts through the high part of town, and a second road…

Looking Up from Positano

Like the other towns on Italy's Amalfi Coast, Positano stretches from its beautiful coastline up into the surrounding mountains. Standing on the beach, the signature dome of the church of Santa Maria Assunta is framed between an enclave in the ridge-line of the mountains. Buildings stretch much of the way up. This image was made…

Positano Blue

Positano on Italy's Amalfi Coast is a spectacularly stunning township, rising up from the sea into the heights of the surrounding mountains. We visited in late Autumn, the low season for tourism, and we loved the fact that we could truly explore the coast, and the whole township without having to battle any crowds whatsoever.…

With 927 windows in a variety of colours, Singapore’s Old Hill Street Police Station is a striking landmark as you cruise up the Singapore River…

Balancing Equipment Care with Getting the Shot

British landscape photographer and YouTuber Thomas Heaton recently produced an interesting video about looking after your camera gear. What is cool about the video is that while Thomas stresses excellent care procedures and suitable cleaning techniques (who can forget “always blow before you go”), he puts just as much emphasis on not getting too precious…

A lesson re-learned

I sometimes wonder how often we have to re-learn a lesson we’ve previously learned. It can be an especially intriguing conundrum when we make a mistake that not only have we previously learned, but one for which measures have been put in place to minimise associated risks. Recently I went out for some sunrise photography…

The Blast Furnace

The Ambivert’s Guide to Street Photography I recently read a fascinating ebook called The Ambivert’s Guide to Street Photography by Scott Wyden Kivowitz. I am quite keen on progressing my street photography skills, but I don’t always feel comfortable just taking a photo of someone, and I don’t relish the idea of approaching a stranger…
