The Coloured Canyon – Sinai, Egypt with the Bedouins

For those of you who read about the trip I made in the summer to Antelope Canyon in Arizona, you’ll realise that I got a little bit fascinated with “Slot Canyons” as a result.  So, with a rather frustrating start to a well-needed break in Sharm-El-Sheikh (without going into detail, I wouldn’t recommend the place, ever!) we took the opportunity for something a little different by getting int he back of a 4×4 and heading […]

Landscapes and Sunsets Update – National Parks & Morro Bay

It was only the other day that I realised I’d been updating my Facebook and twitter accounts with a lot more landscape images than I had been uploading on to here. Time to get that corrected! This first shot was taken in August – at Devil’s Golf Course in Death Valley National Park.  What had started out as a really grey day soon burned off to reveal a deep blue sky.  What you’re looking at is actually salt […]

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Sunrise Dawn - Paul Reiffer, Professional London Photographer

Golden Gate Bridge Sunrise and San Francisco City Views

Knowing San Francisco relatively well, I knew that when I tried to get a sunrise shot of the Golden Gate Bridge back in August I was really setting myself up for failure. Waking up before 4am, we drove to one of the lookout points to find we couldn’t see even the front of the car – let alone the bridge and the city! Disappointed, we drove back and caught up with some much-needed sleep, but […]

Roy’s Motel, Amboy – A road trip to a Route 66 landmark

“Welcome to Amboy” – a phrase which I’m sure was used many times in the past, but not any more. Apart from the (randomly) fully functioning post office, Amboy is now very much a ghost town, around half way between Palm Springs and Las Vegas. Having checked it out before we headed there, I knew that “Roy’s Motel” is actually a bit of an iconic landmark, locally. Postcards are sold with the famous sign and […]

East Fleet Farm – The Jetty

There’s a jetty that sticks out into The Fleet in Dorset which has featured in many, many photographs but I never quite got around to finding out where it was. That is, until a friend of mine – Nick – asked to go out shooting for the afternoon to try out his new Canon 5D/II on some landscape shots around Dorset. Given the choice of more retouching, or maybe getting a nice new sunset shot, […]

Bryce Canyon National Park – Who knows the hoodoos?

“Bryce Point” – Print available to buy now Welcome to Bryce Canyon National Park – the last of the 5 parks and canyons I visited in August, including our trip to the amazing Antelope Canyon in Arizona (yes, I’ll upload those photos soon too!). Last year, I visited Joshua Tree National Park in California, and captured images that are now in use by the National Park Service (NPS) for their brochures and guides. So, following […]

Antelope Canyon, Arizona – The Photography Tour

It’s been a long time coming, it has to be said. For well over a year, I’ve wanted to shoot Antelope Canyon, having seen a few random photos of it on the web some time ago. The problem is, flying to Arizona purely to shoot one Canyon is a little bit over the top, so this was my opportunity to combine it with a US National Parks shoot – cool 🙂  With around 30GB of […]

Microsoft Bing – Can I get my image on the homepage?

Many of you will know the history to “bing” – Microsoft’s evolution to their original MSN search page.  Granted, a lot less people would ever say they’re “binging” something than those who “google”, but hey – it’s used by a surprising amount of people.   Last month, Microsoft launched a competition in association (rather randomly) with Dizzee Rascal – called “Your Britain”. What’s unique about bing is that it displays a different image every day […]

International Photography Awards – My Submission

It’s that time of year again – the “awards season”. Ready with my entries for both the BIPP and RPS, I have decided this year that I won’t be submitting anything into the UK “Landscape Photographer of the Year” and instead divert that time, energy and money into a different (and in my view) more substantial competition:  The International Photography Awards 2011.  While the UK Landscape competition is strong, when I look at the panel […]

The Hunt for Maya Bay, Phi Phi Leh – “The Beach”

Having taken almost an entire day getting from the (stunning) luxury of the Hansar resort in Koh Samui, we arrived at Laem Tong in Phi Phi pretty late in the evening.  While it was a chore getting there (involving a car to the airport, flight, car from airport, ferry, long tail boat transfer) it wasn’t Phi Phi Don I was here to see – it was the smaller sibling, Phi Phi Leh which we the target […]

US National Park Service – Joshua Tree Images

Great news – some of the images I captured when visiting Joshua Tree National Park last year are now being used by the US National Park Service themselves in their 75th anniversary brochures. The shot below being used on the first page of their new visiting guide… This is the first of several that were shot, hopefully it brings a little bit of colour to all of their visitors to Joshua Tree during this year […]

Hive Beach – On a winter’s afternoon

Two birds with one stone today: Number one, to get out and about shooting some landscapes in England for fun (I haven’t done that for a couple months now) and number two, to visit some places that are (embarrassingly) just down the road to which I’ve never been. So, Hive Beach is today’s focal point. On the way, I passed a stunning view of both St Catherine’s Chapel in Abbotsbury as well as the Fleet […]

Rome - Altare della Patria | Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II | Paul Reiffer - Photographer

Rome Revisited

In what turned out to be a somewhat bittersweet trip, my latest trip to Rome allowed me to photograph some “non-standard” shots instead of focusing on the main tourist landmarks as my previous (and first) visit had done.  The “bittersweet” part?  Well, who can forget the stranded thousands due to the snow at London’s Heathrow airport – unfortunately, British Airways seem to be in the list of those who can, as for all they know […]

The Return to Joshua Tree

Yes, it got to me. Not even two days after visiting Joshua Tree National Park, the fact I hadn’t seen the “big arch” finally made me crack. So, rental car on order, I finally managed to hunt down where it was through Google maps/earth/images…  So, maps and iPhone in-pocket, I set out through Joshua Tree (the town) and hit the park through the same entrance Chuck and I had used two days prior. This time, […]

Joshua Tree National Park with Chuck

Yesterday, Chuck and I headed to Joshua Tree National Park just before sunset to see if the light would play nice and allow me to capture some cool colours against all the rocks and landscapes in the park.  Although we got there a little later than planned, I got to use my ND filter for the first time since the summer, and the sky didn’t disappoint… First off, where is it?  Well – here’s a […]
