Inside Antelope Canyon – Paul’s Complete Photography Guide

It’s a location that features on the bucket list of many photographers, and it’s a magnetic one at that. Having already visited both Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon 6 or 7 times since my first visit in 2011, I still have the urge to return every now and then to capture the other-worldly scenes of light-trails, stunning rock formations and shadows throughout these two natural wonders just outside of Page, Arizona. Sadly, there is a lot […]

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 uploadย 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 […]

What Digital Camera Magazine – The Horseshoe Bend Landscape

So this is the latest publication to feature the shot I took of Horseshoe Bend, AZ, last year – What Digital Camera Magazine. ๐Ÿ™‚ This follows press coverage in the Times, the Daily Mail, The Guardian, Metro and many others who over the past month have picked up on the images which were submitted to theย Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photography’s panel earlier this year.

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.

Horseshoe Bend, Arizona – Photographing the Colorado River

A couple of months ago, we were in San Diego watching the solar eclipse by accident and I started seeing images of a massive rock formation crop up across the Internet as photographers had flocked to “Horseshoe Bend” in Arizona to capture it as it happened. Sadly, clouds obscured a lot of the images they posted, but it did make me want to go there to shoot (after all, it faces almost due west, perfect […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
