Mountain Photography + Tips & Advice

1M ago
I wanted to share some of my favourite mountain photos, and I thought while I'm at it, I'd also compile some tips for mountain photography, for anyone who'd like to improve their own images from and of the peaks. This first photo is one I haven’t shared before. It’s a multi-shot panorama of the Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the highlands of Iceland, shortly after sunrise. My Influences I wasn't always big on mountains, but ancient, weather-beaten, rugged, craggy-faced, and grey; I find myself drawn to them more in middle-age than ever before. And they’re addictive.

Bear Photos

If you go down to the woods today, you're unlikely to see a bear. Especially if you live in the UK, as I do. But I find them totally enchanting, and I've been lucky enough to see bears on several occasions in the past. They're one of my favourite animals, so I thought it would make a nice subject for a blog post to collect some of my favourite bear photos from over the years, and share them together. All the bears I've photographed here are brown bears (ursus arctos). That's the same species found across North America, Europe, and Russia. Within that umbrella term there are several subspeci ..read more

Owl and Falcon Studio Photography Shoot

Last autumn I tried something I had wanted to do for a few years; to photograph raptors in a studio environment. I was able to photograph several different species of owl and falcon on the day, but I was particularly keen for the opportunity to photograph my favourite bird of all; the great grey owl. I took these photos with Miles Herbert at Liberty's Raptor Centre. All of these birds are captive-bred, and photographed under controlled conditions, using two remote strobe/flash lights. This means that I'm able to get the kind of low-light, black backgrounds I'm fond of, without having to coordi ..read more

Harpa Architecture - Reykjavik

January seems like a good time to share something a bit different. In this case it's not wildlife, nature, or conventional landscape photography. But it's good to get out of your comfort zone now and again, and I hope you will get something from this departure from my usual subject matter too. Last time I was in Iceland's capital, Reykjavik, I challenged myself to capture some interesting pictures of one of it's more recent architectural landmarks, and a building I enjoy; Harpa Concert Hall. It's a fascinating building. On the face of it it's a huge glass monolith like many going up around the ..read more

Highland Cow Photography

Today I'm sharing some new photos of one of my favourite subjects; Highland Cows. Throughout this year I've been working on a highland cow photography project; visiting on and off, every few weeks. It's been a really enjoyable background project, which has given me lots of opportunities to see the cows in different light, different seasons, and to experiment with different photographic styles. I figured that now we're at the end of the year, it's probably time to call time on it and share the photos.

Black & White Deer Photography 2023

This is the second half of this year's deer rut photos, from my local patch at Woburn, Bedfordshire, in autumn 2023. I was trying to decide how to divide the photos into two blog posts, when I realised that I had ten colour photos and ten black & white photos, so these are all the black and whites. I don't always know what makes me decide that a photo is best presented in black and white, but I'll try to explain that decision for some of these. Generally, I like the more 'graphic' aesthetic of black & white, and the subtle abstraction. They can also work very well for wall art too, as ..read more

Deer Photography 2023

It's that time of year again. The nights are drawing in, and the deer are at their most active during the autumn rut. I photograph the deer nearby to me, at Woburn, in Bedfordshire. I've been out photographing them several times over the last few weeks, and I've got a nice selection of shots, I think. This year I've decided to split my deer photos into 2 blog posts. This is the first one, and the second post will be out a few weeks later. This first photo is a deer I've nicknamed "The Brute". He was a bit of a monster. There are times when you see deer during the rut, which seem to be bellowin ..read more

Dolomites 2023

Some photos from a trip to the Italian Dolomites mountain range, in the summer of 2023. I first visited the Dolomites in 2019, and have been keen to return ever since. That was a camping and hiking trip, which I really enjoyed, but such is the convenience and infrastructure there, it's also very easy to have a more relaxing time there - which was the case this time around. Cortina d'Ampezzo & Monte Antelao I love Monte Antelao and I was really keen to photograph it again, after a difficult shoot there last time around. It towers over the Cortina valley bellow, looking every bit the "King ..read more

Iceland - 10 Years On

I realised recently that September will mark 10 years since my first visit to Iceland, and a trip that injected a real wanderlust and focus to our travels and my landscape photography journey. That first trip in 2013 was one of the most influential experiences in my life, and prompted us to explore more Nordic countries & northern landscapes ever since, including trips to Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, and Greenland, as well as a further 6 return-visits to Iceland itself. The natural landscapes in Iceland are obviously incredible and make for great fun to photograph, but more than that ..read more
