How I Photograph the Ocean

It’s fair to say that a lot, urm make that most, of my imagery focuses on the Ocean, seascapes and moving bodies of water such as rivers and waterfalls. How I photograph the Ocean is something that I do for myself, my way of looking and interpreting the motion of Mother Nature’s most powerful entity is a spiritual and emotional journey. The Ocean connects many people, it is an incredibly powerful entity that draws our gaze whenever it becomes agitated, […]

Editing Timelapse Sequences

Timelapse sequences when edited correctly can add massive production value to your video project. Now, before you go barreling into shooting a scene with your camera of choice, in this instance I use default settings of a GoProHero5, there are some guidelines you should be aware of. When shooting anything related to the speeding up, or slowing down, of time you need to base your planning on the frame rate of your project. Whilst there is some math involved in […]

Instagram Rolls Out “Recommended For You” Feature

Instagram is without a doubt the monster of all social media platforms catering to the demands of the image sharing public. Selfies, Celebrity, Sporting and more. It’s an awesome way to stay in touch with a follower base, family, friends or business related profiles. I don’t spread myself too thickly across the social media divide. I have my own account that caters specific to my mixed media work, with a very light sprinkling of family stuff. There was a time […]

Life, Filtered by KANI

Landscape photography is potentially the most adhered to genre in imaging bar none. I was recently asked if I could edit a string out of imagery from a wealth of photographers, myself included, who have been supported by the KANI Optics distributors in Japan. KANI Optics make some of the finest photographic filters for landscape photography currently on the market. I have recently also just finished the gruelling ten week video project named ‘Photographing Okinawa‘ that saw me take in […]

Okinawa 2018 Calendar

As the year comes to a close my 2018 Calendar takes shape. Well I guess it’s that time of year again, the build up to ‘Chrimbo’ albeit tentative steps. I try to get my best images arranged by about this time each year so as to comprise my Calendar offering for the coming year. Having only moved to Okinawa at the beginning of this year I’ve had a blast shooting landscapes and a range of commercial options since that arrival. […]

Cape Hedo Okinawa

Cape Hedo in Northern Okinawa is one of the leading tourist spots on the island. Dramatic and sweeping vistas of sheer cliffs to the North and the potential for great sunsets to the West. On a recent trip to photograph Northern Okinawa, I found myself battling to the top of a seldom visited escarpment, to check out not just Cape Hedo but also the rest of that region of the island including the expanse of greenery known as the Yanbaru […]

How I Got the Shot: Mermaids Mist

Sunset Photography is always something that figures high not just in my but for all landscape photographers minds. It started out as a great day, most of the morning was bathed in warm sunshine, but that turned sour later in the afternoon. I thought I was on for a great sunset, it certainly looked that way but then something went sour. Blue skies and white clouds were soon replaced with slate greys and dark ominous clouds, as the wind shifted […]

How I Got the Shot – Taming the Raging Seas

‘How I Got the Shot’ is a new feature of my web presence. An increasing number of friends and followers are asking me that very same question so I thought it could be best to share my work mindset and accomplishments in an educational aspect too. What’s more I will also be offering each shot I highlight as a computer desktop image to those willing to support my work via Patreon. More about this later. OK, so to this first […]

mystery big cats of Iriomote island

What the heck is the ‘Yamapikarya’?

A sense of adventure has always been something burning away inside of me. I would often find my imagination drifting off on adventures to lost lands, discovering mystery big cats in jungles with no names or encountering a lost tribe for the first time. As a wayward young lad growing up on the South Coast of England I would wish away the weekdays in order to be free of my schooling shackles. With each weekend came the opportunity to explore […]
