Andris Envy
The world is full of talented photographers but every now and then you see something that makes you truly humble. The limited edition trilogy of Fiordland books presented by Andris Apse is a unique offering filled with remarkable images. It also costs more than my 70-200mm lens.

The Photography Blog

Andris Apse doesn't do much in the way of blogging. He's a landscape photographer in the old school of the art. Spend long days in remote locations carrying heavy gear. Do this for a decade and you gather up a fraction of the frames to pull together in a book. Lovely.

I'll let the images speak for themselves.

His work concentrates on New Zealand, and largely to the south. As far south as Antarctica in fact. What makes Adris' images notable are their elegance and diversity. There's a tendency for landscape galleries to present a lot of similar material - it's the nature of the subject in some ways. Really great photographers manage to find a wide palette of colours, variety of subjects and unique perspectives.

Asustor Lockerstor AS6510T Long Term Review

After a decade or more with QNAP hardware I was reluctant to step into a whole new NAS environment. The sheer value of the Lockerstor AS6510T made it hard to ignore. This long term review was mostly good news, until the issue of heat management turned into something more serious.

SD Cards Explained

SD Cards Explained

Shopping for an SD card is frustratingly hard, with so many brands, standards and price points to navigate through. Especially when speed is a necessity rather than a luxury. It's also possible that the best value SD card is a MicroSD card, if you have the right adaptor.

The Big Setup

The Big Setup

After 12 months of trying to build a fast network of RAID disks for Capture One catalogues and 4K video editing, I’ve compiled a list of my high and lows. It’s a tale dominated by disappointment in technology. There are wins to be had, but keep your expectations low.
