ANTARCTICA DISPATCH #4 LEAVING FOR USHUAIA

The last few days in Buenos Aires seem to have passed with some degree of speed – I guess that is just the way it goes the first time you visit a new city when there is so much to see and do in a limited amount of time. My friend Martyn and I are […]

ANTARCTICA DISPATCH #3 – BUENOS AIRES – CEMENTARIO DE RECOLETA

Martyn and I managed to find our way over to the Cementario De Recoleta early this afternoon where we spent some time wandering amongst the maze of ancient crypts and tombs before settling into a nearby cafe in the shade for a cold drink and a spot of lunch. Its quite hot and humid today […]

ANTARCTICA DISPATCH #2 – BUENOS AIRES

A more pointed example than Buenos Aires that big cities are just not my cup of tea I cannot imagine. The sprawling, seething urban metropolis ticks all the boxes for things I dislike about big cities – pollution, over-crowding, poverty, crime, grime, the list goes on. And to top it all off its far too […]

The International Loupe Awards for 2011 (formally known as the International Aperture Awards) seem to have snuck up on me this year and I was not aware that images were already in the stages of being judged until early this morning when I was notified via email that my personal favourite photograph from Iceland  (A photograph […]

THE CASTLE – LANDMANNALAUGAR ICELAND

One of the locations in Iceland that I am most looking forward to returning to next year and for my workshop in 2013 is Landmannalaugar. This volcanic region of Iceland has one of the most alien and multi-coloured landscapes in the country and is truly a photographers paradise. With its multi-coloured rhyolite mountains, luminous veins […]
