Greenland – Capturing the Glaciers & Icebergs of the Arctic Circle

There’s something inherently mysterious and special about visiting arctic circle locations such as Greenland. Whether it’s the months of nightless days or dayless nights, the extreme temperatures in which people still manage to survive, the stunning scenery by itself, or the first-hand view you get of what is happening to our world’s climate – there was enough attraction to convince me, along with Thomas from Rollei, to head north and explore. Having decided to head […]

Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney – South East Australia’s Cities & Beyond

It’s a horrible trap we fall in to, when flying “down under” from London: Sydney becomes our target, to the exclusion of many other locations. It’s the primary advertised route from the UK, and after travelling 20-24 hours to get there, our appetite for further travel can sometimes fade a little, meaning we focus purely on this one “cool city” on Australia’s south-eastern coastline. And, in part, rightly so – it’s an amazing place to […]

Photographers, Instagrammers – Stop Being So Damn Selfish and Disrespectful

What does it take to push a farmer to this point? The point where, fed up of thousands of disrespectful photographers, wannabe “influencers” and narcissistic tourists, they feel the only way to get them to stop damaging their business and property, is to damage those people’s photographs? I guess those visiting the lavender fields of Valensole, Provence – in the south of France, just found out. I write this, obviously, with a slight tinge of […]

Review : Shooting Icebergs with the Phase One iQ3 Achromatic 100MP Digital Back

Over $50,000 for a camera system that only shoots Black and White images? Yes, say Phase One, and that’s exactly why the iQ3 100-Megapixel Achromatic Medium Format Digital Back is that price – because it does purely that, exceptionally well. While my original intention was to capture sunsets, sunrises, and everything in between on my trip to Ilulissat, in Greenland – the opportunity to collect a demo unit from them in Copenhagen on the way to […]

Hooker Lake : New Zealand, Frozen in Time

That brief moment, just before sunrise, when it’s no longer night – but the day is still yet to arrive – that was the moment when I captured this view of Hooker Lake, in the foothills of New Zealand’s Mount Cook. Standing at 3,724m (following a rockslide which lost 40m in 1991), Aoraki Mt Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand, set amongst the collection of peaks which make up the Southern Alps. As with most […]

Tasman Lake – New Zealand’s Glacial Sunrise

It’s the shot I thought had got away – the image of New Zealand’s Aoraki Mount Cook and its surrounding range, dusted in snow, with glacial icebergs floating in the river before me. Only 3 weeks prior, our initial trip to Hooker Lake ended in disappointment. The trek to the lakefront was filled with slips, slides, falls and bumps as the ice underfoot made a (normally easy) walk that little bit more interesting. Despite the clear […]
