Paul Reiffer Yoga Photographer Bad Back Broken Fix Chiropractor Bolster Manduka Zoom Online Class Sida Yoga Teacher Private

Yoga vs Photography – One good for the back, one… maybe not so much.

That, there, is a bead of my sweat. It’s fallen on my yoga mat after participating, willingly, in one of Vic’s online sida yoga sessions. And for balance, here are some other things I never thought I’d be saying, if I went back to a year ago today: My elderly relatives are proficient in “Zooming”, and how to “connect to audio”. I’ve managed to make a tank of fuel last 4 months. I got quite good at […]

Shoot for the Moon – Capturing the 2018 Lunar Eclipse

While eclipses of all sorts happen throughout each year – from “blood moons” to annular solar eclipses, total eclipses and every partial one in between, this year’s lunar eclipse promised something special: the longest lunar eclipse in the 21st century. So the call from Rollei came – could I come across and be involved in their live shoot on Instagram, capturing the spectacle from Hamburg? Well, why not…? With a few days’ preparation beforehand and […]

Lofoten Fishermans Cottages Hamnoy Red Sunrise Glow Sky Paul Reiffer Photographer Workshop Photography Luxury Bespoke Private Norway

Norway’s Lofoten Islands – Stunning? Yes. “Untamed”? I’m not so sure.

It’s one of landscape photography’s “big ticks” – that shot of the fishermans cottages in the shadow of Lofoten’s mountain range in Hamnøy; one of the archipelago’s tiny islands connected by bridges that span for miles across the region. I have to admit, it’s been a place I’d been wanting to shoot for a while, so when the opportunity arose to test some new equipment in low temperatures, it was pretty high up there on […]

Hide & Seek – Denmark’s Sand-Covered Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse, Løkken

Arriving into bad weather wasn’t on the original plan, but it had taken us long enough to get to Løkken so a determination to shoot took over – I was there to shoot the hidden lighthouse, and that’s precisely what I was going to do, rain and sand storm or not. Set almost as far north as you can go in Denmark, Løkken has become somewhat of a local tourist-trap for its beaches more than […]

Electric Dreams : Dubai Revisited

Stepping out onto the scorching hot ground of the Red Sand Desert, I was reminded (rather cheerily) by our guide of the one thing I should be grateful for in this midday sun : “at least it’s not last month, it was at least 10 degrees C hotter!”. It was quite a contrast to where I’d been sat just hours before, being looked after in BA’s Concorde Room at London Heathrow – getting pampered (in […]

Iceland : The Land of the Midnight Sun, Mountains & Waterfalls

What an evening – and what a view! Being lucky enough to stand in the foothills of Kirkjufellsfoss at 12:30am this summer was quite the experience, and everything I thought it would be all those months ago when we planned this trip to Iceland to see the midnight sun. Landing into Reykjavik, it was clear this was going to be a strange week – looking back to the plane in the middle of the night […]
