Retrospective 2014 
What’s happened in 2014 It’s the end of 2014 and time to reflect on what I’ve achieved in the last year. It’s been a funny year for me after relocating to Nice, France in January. I’ve been somewhat unsettled learning a new language, and culture. I’ve taken a back seat business-wise, spending a lot of […]

Animal tracks Parc national du Mercantour
Weather in the mountains is hard to predict. Not that I did any research, I had my trip planned and I would photograph the landscape with what ever weather I was presented with. For this trip I arrived in the midst of one of the seasons last snow falls. The sky was a white out, […]

Sunflowers, Loire Valley, France
The Loire Valley in France was more than just some fancy Chateau’s (photos to come), it was beautiful countryside too. The drive there from Paris reminded me of the UK actually. Everything was so green…and it was raining. I didn’t realise how much agriculture is there, and so close to Paris. Fields of sunflowers, wheat, […]

Grand Cayre de la Madone
A weekend photographing the snow, I was excited to say the least. The only problem was it was May, spring had sprung, and with the warm temperatures we had been experience in Nice there was a chance I may not see any snow at all. Passing through Saint-Martin-Vésubie I drove down one of the two nearby roads that lead to the […]

Lee Filter Landscape Sunrise Sky Set
I’m an avid fan of Lee filters using their Neutral Density (ND) filters on almost every shoot. However I’ve always cringed at the thought of using their coloured filters. I mean why would I want my photos to look like the opening scene of CSI Miami? I had it in my mind there was no […]
