Thank you so much L-Type Prints for featuring my work as part of the esteemed group of photographers in their Exhibition page. L-Type have done an incredible job of printing both my client and exhibition work since I started working with them. I highly recommend the quality of their products! The full gallery called “Sheltering […]

I recently returned from a stunning winter wildlife photography tour with Wild Images.  A summary of my work shot on that trip is here: Our 2019 tour to Japan is already full but if you would like to join our trip in 2020, the details are here: https://www.wildimages-phototours.com/photography-tours/japan-winter-wildlife-spectacular-2020/

We saw it shimmering in the desert heat. A tiny squat building that reminded me of the more elaborate buildings constructed by the Dogon people of Mali further west. Rising from the rippled sands of the Sahara, the building immediately caught my eye. We had arrived in the tiny hamlet of Kouba Olanga, near the […]

On my recent trip to Australia to co-lead and drive the Princess Parrot Expedition for Birdquest, I had the pleasure of being able to tack a few days on to the end of the trip to see my family in Cairns and on the Gold Coast. During my stay with my parents in Cairns, I finally […]

2016 was a quiet year for me, travel wise.  It started and ended in one of my favourite continents on earth, Africa.  Here is a selection of my favourite images shot last year and why I like them so much. A month in Ethiopia was an incredible way to round out 2016. 2017, by contrast, […]

It’s been some time since I exhibited work to the public.  This hasn’t been intentional.  It’s just that I don’t generally have the time.  I have been lucky in that the commercial exhibitions I have held during my career have all been commercially successful and they are always a great source of publicity. In the spirit […]

It’s not often that I wake up on a Sunday to news that some of my work has been published across my home country but that is what happened to me today. The crisp white linen of our bed is a far cry from the four layers of bedding I slept under for 17 days […]

Afghanistan:  It is at once pastoral and chaotic, peaceful and violent, destroyed and resilient, wonderfully welcoming yet deeply inhospitable – Steve McCurry How could anyone ever forget those eyes? For someone who tried desperately to get location work in Afghanistan for years and now feels that my chance has passed, I was always tremendously inspired by Steve […]

I love children.  Although I’ve never had my own, I’ve been fortunate enough to have four amazing step kids in my life, all of whom have brought me growth, maturity, insight and inspiration over the last decade that I’ve been instrumental in raising them. For a reason that pre-dates even my stepmother role, I’ve always gravitated […]

  As a professional photographer I carry a STACK of gear.  The general rule of thumb I’ve discovered as I enter my tenth year in this industry is that the amount of gear you carry increases at a directly proportional rate to the decrease in airline luggage limits.  I’ve become very practiced at keeping a […]

Tibet is a hard place.  It is high, cold, dry, dusty and icy.  Life in Tibet is hard for the people living there, the animals that call it home and for visitors unaccustomed, unacclimatised to the conditions on the roof of the world. It is also a very hard place to organise an expedition to.  […]

A lot has been said by photographers in the blogosphere about the apps they use for capturing images and manipulating them through portable devices like iPhones, iPads, Androids etc.  As someone who works in photography I love having the ability to capture images on the fly using my iPhone. However, when you enter the realm […]
