Beijing, The Great Wall of China, Forbidden City & Olympic Stadium

“The Greatest Wall” – Print available to buy now Since moving to China, I’d looked at the best time to go and photograph the Great Wall (or the sections near Beijing, anyway) – and no time seemed perfect. Winter is VERY cold up there, summer is too hot (and covered with people sleeping on the wall) and while autumn is a great time for colour, the early sunrise along with massive crowds makes it difficult […]

Photographing the Hollywood Sign – A Los Angeles Landmark

Last October, during a visit to LA, a friend and I tried getting that ever sought-after “unique view” of the Hollywood sign. Despite signs threatening death to all tourists (I imagine it could be quite frustrating there!) the backroads surrounding the overlooks didn’t provide much in the way of an inspirational view and while we saw some fantastic houses, I left with nothing special in terms of photographs of the sign. This trip, I decided […]

Portland Bill Dorset Lighthouse Skyline Sea After Sunset England - Neutral Density Filter - Paul Reiffer, Professional London Landscape Photographer

Neutral Density and ND-Grad Filters – what’s the use?

Quick question: What do the following images have in common? The simple answer? They’d be impossible shots to take without some form of filter – and in this particular case, a filter which many people misunderstand or simply don’t think they need. That is, until they understand the power that it can have when shooting landscapes. It’s also one of the most frequently asked questions of land/seascape photographers – “how did you manage to do […]

Photographing the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge

After a gruelling CES in Las Vegas, a free day in San Francisco was just what I needed, and the prospect of spending the day shooting with a great photographer friend of mine – Scott Marrs – was not to be missed πŸ™‚ With my new Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II in my bag, it was time to get the tripod and ND filters out to go grab some images. We actually spent the day […]

Corfe Castle – Sunrise Photography in Dorset

Ashamed as I am to say it, given the amount of time I spend in and around Dorset, I’ve never once photographed Corfe Castle. It’s just down the road, and hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of photographers have captured it already, but for some reason, I’ve just never gone. “Corfe Sunrise” – Print available to buy now So, with the sunrise now starting at a reasonable hour in the middle of winter, I decided […]

Landscapes and Sunsets Update – National Parks & Morro Bay

It was only the other day that I realised I’d been updating my Facebook and twitter accounts with a lot more landscape images than I had been uploading on to here. Time to get that corrected! This first shot was taken in August – at Devil’s Golf Course in Death Valley National Park.  What had started out as a really grey day soon burned off to reveal a deep blue sky.  What you’re looking at is actually salt […]

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Sunrise Dawn - Paul Reiffer, Professional London Photographer

Golden Gate Bridge Sunrise and San Francisco City Views

Knowing San Francisco relatively well, I knew that when I tried to get a sunrise shot of the Golden Gate Bridge back in August I was really setting myself up for failure. Waking up before 4am, we drove to one of the lookout points to find we couldn’t see even the front of the car – let alone the bridge and the city! Disappointed, we drove back and caught up with some much-needed sleep, but […]

Bryce Canyon National Park – Who knows the hoodoos?

“Bryce Point” – Print available to buy now Welcome to Bryce Canyon National Park – the last of the 5 parks and canyons I visited in August, including our trip to the amazing Antelope Canyon in Arizona (yes, I’ll upload those photos soon too!). Last year, I visited Joshua Tree National Park in California, and captured images that are now in use by the National Park Service (NPS) for their brochures and guides. So, following […]
