ICE SANCTUARY – PHOTO OF THE MONTH DECEMBER 2012

The photograph of the month for December is from Wilhemina Bay in Antarctica. Some of the most beautiful and unusual icebergs we encountered on my last expedition to Antarctica were found in both the Gerlache Strait and Wilhemnia Bay. This particular photograph was taken in Wilhemina Bay as we slowly cruised the area looking for […]

NIK RADIO INTERVIEW

Over the last year I have become a really big fan of several of the Nik software plug-ins for the Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom programs. In particular, Silver EFX Pro 2, Viveza 2 and Nik Sharpener Pro 3 have become indispensable tools in my image workflow. Not to mention the amazing and very popular Snapseed […]

REVIEW: CANON GP-E1 GPS RECEIVER FOR THE CANON 1DX CAMERA

Geotagging photographs is becoming increasingly popular these days and there are now quite a wide range of geo-tagged guidebook resources available for photographers to aid in location scouting. If you carry a GPS and a GPS guidebook you can very easily find the location where a particular photograph was taken. If it is the first […]

CAPTURE AUSTRALIA THE ANNUAL 2012 FEATURES ANTARCTIC IMAGES

Hot on the heals of finding one of my favourite Antarctica images was photograph of the day at National Geographic’s website I discovered that Capture Magazine (Australia’s top selling Pro Photography magazine) also picked up two photographs from the same trip and featured them in their Annual which was released last week. This is the second […]

MOUNTAIN OF FURY – USHUAIA SOUTH AMERICA

One of the real joys of ship based photography is to stand on the ship’s deck with a camera and watch (and photograph) the scene slowly roll past as you cruise along. Many of my best photographs from Antarctica were made this way – including ‘Penguins Adrift in Snow Storm‘ which was recently featured as […]

ONLY 600 MILES TO THE NORTH POLE!

A couple of days ago I received an email from someone interested in joining my new expedition to the Arctic in August next year – The Jewels of the Arctic. As a parent of young kids one of the questions about the trip really made me smile and after some back and forth email I […]

ROYAL CANADIAN GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY 2013 CALENDAR

One of the real joys of Polar photography (both North and South) is the abundance of wildlife and the myriad of photographic opportunities available for not only landscape, but also wildlife photography. I am still sorting through the thousands of frames I shot of penguins and seals on my last Antarctic trip even as next […]

CHAMONIX FRANCE – A GLASS OF WINE, CABLE RELEASE AND DECK CHAIR

Very occasionally a situation presents itself where I can make a photograph I am really pleased with from the side of the road, or some other easily accessible location. More often than that not however I have to travel, walk and hike to get the image I am after – Nature rarely serves up the […]

WHOOPS! WE DISAPPEARED FOR A WHILE THERE!

It appears as though my blog was offline and unavailable for the last two days as a result of an unanticipated problem that arose during some planned website updates. You may have noticed that posts to my blog have been a little thin of late and that is because I have been working very hard […]

OCTOBER PHOTOGRAPH OF THE MONTH: OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE

Without doubt one of the most otherworldly and alien locations I have ever had the pleasure to visit and photograph is Hveravellir in Iceland. I first became fascinated with this remote area many years ago when I saw a photograph of the iridescent blue geothermal pool that lies in the middle of the barren Icelandic […]
