Cooked the Books
Each year Shellie designs a unique menu for our food photography workshop, and then publishes the recipes online for everyone to enjoy. Even if you didn't make it to this years event, you can still get a taste of our workshops in your own kitchen.
Snow and Light in Norway
Snow hides everything you don’t want to see. It silently arrives in the depth of night and fills in the gaps, wipes away the footsteps from yesterdays photographers and leaves you a clean slate to work with every morning. Snow clones out the messy bits better than any Photoshop session.
Moonlight and Auroras
Mixing in the light of the moon can bring a new world of possibilities to your aurora photography.
Norway Off The Dial
Trip report from our adventures in Arctic Norway. This year was an exceptional adventure and one we will treasure for a lifetime.
Fiona and Sharon in Norway
The best thing about getting feedback from my travellers is the way it lets me re-live the moments from a journey. The 2020 Arctic Norway trip was really special because we had such a lovely group of people and so many great experiences. The weather was some of the least helpful we've ever had on a tour, and yet we still got exactly what we came for. The Aurora Borealis.
Nordlys in Norway
It's been a year since last I was standing underneath an aurora, looking straight up to the sky above as it danced around my head. I'm hoping the global covid situation will allow us to return to Norway in February, but in the meantime I can travel back in time through the photos and a special podcast episode we recorded on tour.
We Made A Cookbook
We’ve been waiting a very long time for this moment! Cabin Fever Cookbook is coming! Finally Shellie and I get to share our cookbook and the wonderful experiences that made it possible. Scandinavian inspiration, stunning locations, wonderful ingredients and some of our very best photography.
Rokinon 14mm DS T3.1 CineLens
A seriously affordable astro photography lens to help you chase stars, auroras and ultra wide landscapes.
Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 - Long Term Review
This is a hard lens to leave at home. It delivers quality and sharpness for landscapes and the night sky, plus has a neat party trick with rear pocket for ND filters. Worthy companion to any full-frame mirrorless camera. (Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN)
Why Is More Important Than How
Sometimes we focus too much on the style and not enough on substance. What motivates us to capture images is far important than the camera itself.
Benro GX35 Ball-Head Review
Quality yet affordable option for full-frame cameras if you're looking to swap out your old ball-head for an Arca-Swiss alternative.
Auroras and The Lumix G9
Big auroras with a very small camera. The key is choosing the right lens, something ultra wide and ideally with fully manual operation.
