Yahoo Weather App Apple iPhone Screen Shots Paul Reiffer Photographer Landscape

New Yahoo! Weather App Featuring Landscape Backgrounds

Well that was a nice surprise – I went to check the forecast and my images popped up in Yahoo!’s new Weather App for the iPhone (and yes, it’s also available for Android…) 🙂 Granted, it wasn’t a complete surprise as I knew they had been “tagged” by the Yahoo! team on my Flickr account with words such as “clear”, “night”, “cloudy” etc. but I had no idea of when they might appear. The app itself caught […]

Shanghai Calling : Freeways That Define A City From Above

THIS is the Shanghai I see. 🙂 “Shanghai Calling” – Print available to buy now Millions of images exist of the PuDong skyline taken from The Bund, the famous “Oriental Pearl Tower” now dwarfed by the presence of Jin Mao and the SWFC – indeed, I’ve even shot it myself (although granted, from a slightly different angle 😉 ) So, why would I want to shoot a road network? Well, for two reasons: 1) When […]

Cool Hotels of the World : The W Retreat Koh Samui

The above picture is of my hotel “room” from last week in Koh Samui at the “W Retreat” in Mae Nam. What’s a hotel room doing on Paul’s blog? I hear you ask – Well, there’s a bit of a back-story to this one and the place is stunning enough to warrant me actually putting fingers to keys and writing about it (yes, it’s that good). And for once, I’m posting an entire page of images […]

Free Horseshoe Bend, Colorado River, Desktop Backgrounds To Download!

That’s right – I’ve decided to provide a watermark free copy of my Horseshoe Bend sunset image for use as a desktop wallpaper*. The image was taken in July this year, just as the sun hit the tip of the desert horizon in Page, Arizona. From this amazing vantage point, you can see the Colorado River snake its way around the huge rock formation as it makes its way to the Grand Canyon National Park. […]

Where did the sunshine go…?

Wow, it’s been a looooooong time since I wrote on here – and for that, I can only apologise. Those following me on facebook and twitter will know that it’s been a crazy busy few months, but I know that’s no excuse for not checking in on here every now and then. So tonight, I was planning to grab a few pictures of the 99% full moon – but instead the somewhat permanent feature of rain […]

BIPP Professional Photography Awards 2012 Bronze Winner - Fashion, Hair and Beauty - Paul Reiffer, Photographer - Head Above Water - Award

BIPP Professional Photography Awards 2012 – Bronze Winner

Cool – I won “bronze” in Fashion, Hair & Beauty at the 2012 Professional Photography Awards – held at BFI Southbank in London last night 🙂 Last year’s awards were held at Blenheim Palace, in Oxford, and while it was a fantastic location – I have to admit I’m not really the formal dinner suit type… So it was with an element of surprise, as well as relief, when I found out that not only […]

Doubletake Studios Bankruptcy Administration Business Fail Photo Studio

Doubletake Studios goes into administration/bankruptcy

With a backdrop of established businesses – La Senza, Peacocks, Comet, etc heading for (or indeed buried in) administration, I guess it was only a matter of time before one of the “big studios” would go to the wall. It seems first up is Doubletake Studios… For clarity, I am nothing to do with Double-Take studios, and never have been! (Some people seem to have confused themselves by not reading the content of my post […]

CES 2012 Round-Up – The Photographer’s Perspective from Las Vegas

CES – or the “Consumer Electronics Show” in Las Vegas this year was a must-see for me. While there to look at everything, and learn about emerging technologies in the conference, I couldn’t help but keep my “photographer hat” on and hunt out some little gems during the 4 days I was in town. So, the obvious big-ticket crowd pleasers: Nikon and Canon had their new flagship products at the show for a hands-on look […]

Canon S100 PowerShot and 16-35mm L Lens

New kit additions, Northern Lights, CES and some travel!

It’s been a strange few weeks really – following Christmas. First off, I’ve finally got my hands on my Canon PowerShot S100 – the replacement to the S95 with which I shot my Thailand images. Amazon UK really let me down on that one, but luckily their counterparts in the US managed to get one in time for me to do some playing around to see what it can do 🙂 Next up, I’ve not had […]

Baskit : Male Underwear and Swimwear – it’s competition time!

Who’s up for winning some FREE Baskit products of their choosing?  If that’s you, read on… 😉 My sample pack of their new range arrived this week, ready to shoot with some cool new models – along with an idea from the boys at Baskit : Let’s get some ideas from customers for the photo shoot, and reward them with some free products of their own to keep! Born in 1999, Baskit is a clothing […]

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 Chocolate Box - Studios - Paul Reiffer, Professional London Photographer Model Portfolios

The Chocolate Box

Back at the end of March, I decided to shoot some personal projects that I’d been considering for some time.  The only problem is, when you shoot a lot in the same studio or same surroundings, you end up with images that can look very similar.  To make sure my own projects didn’t end up looking the same, I wanted to try something : shooting in another studio across town. Enter: The Chocolate Factory Studios […]

Suicide Girls - Kelly Jayne Story - Paul Reiffer Photographer London

It’s all a bit too quiet! – Kelly-Jayne Storey, Suicide Girl

Yeah, I know – it’s been a bit quiet in here of late, so I’m taking the opportunity to give everyone a bit of an update now (yes, on Valentine’s day!). So a quick run-down on what’s been going on perhaps? Well, why not…? 😉 To begin with, I’ve got new updates from Suicide-Girl model Kelly-Jayne – including some pretty cool shots like the ones below! Then, there’s the updates to the model portfolio shoots […]

RIP old site

Woah – What HAPPENED?!?

OK, so you MAY have noticed the minor make-over of the site… “Minor?!” I hear you say? Well, maybe it’s a little more than a minor change… Don’t worry – all of my portfolio pictures are still there (only now, they’re in a better gallery) plus there’s a few more treats uploaded within the portfolio pages for you to find 🙂 So why the change?  Well, lots of reasons… 1) I began using my facebook […]
