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 […]

Photokina Roundup & Rollei Filters 15% off Discount Code

The doors are closed, the lights are off, last night saw the end to another fantastic Photokina show for another year. And what a fantastic show it was – surrounded by the latest innovations, technology and knowledge from some of the industry’s leading brands and experts – it’s easy to see why Cologne consistently retains the title as hosting the largest photographic show in the world. This year, I had the absolute pleasure of supporting Rollei […]

California Workshop & Phase One Instagram Takeover

It’s been a crazy and exciting month, May 2015 – for many reasons, and most of which are the excuse for not updating my blog often enough (sorry!). Still to come, I have images to upload from Tokyo, Beijing, the Great Wall of China, Dubai, Maldives and much more. For the next few weeks, however, I’m going to focus on my California road-trip photography workshop as well as the most recent Instagram takeover I did for […]

Shanghai Calling 2 : The Phase One Difference

It’s the one thing I promised myself I would never do after I upgraded my equipment from my Canon gear to a Phase One Medium Format system : re-shooting a cityscape I had already captured. But the lure of Shanghai’s rooftops on a clear night was just too strong, and here I found myself shooting “Shanghai Calling 2” with my 645DF+ and iQ280 digital back. Now, before I go any further, let my just clarify […]

box nikon 1 v3 compact system camera paul reiffer photographer professional

Oh my… Is that a Nikon 1 v3 camera sat on my table?!

Yup – that’s right, I’ve just spent some of my own money on a Nikon camera! Here is my latest toy: A Nikon 1 v3 compact system camera 🙂 Granted, it’s not quite the investment that my Canon 1D X or 5D III along with all the lenses were – and it’s certainly pocket change compared to the cost of all of my Phase One gear, but I felt the need to buy it anyway. So, […]

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 […]

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 […]
