Yunnan Beyond the Yaks
China's increasing middle-class growth is putting pressure on the traditional flavour of tourism across the country. In Yunnan there are still plenty of gems to be discovered, but expect to dig a little deeper to find them.
Nepal Photography Tour
One of the most diverse and challenging tours I have ever organised, this non-trekking adventure gets up close and personal with holy men of Kathmandu, takes travellers into the pure air of the Annapurnas and rolls through the dusty streets of Newari villages in Kathmandu Valley. Sultry sadus, scenic mountains and the noble Newari.
Shooting Sunrise at Meili Xue Shan
Iconic mountains capped with snow and untamed by man. Of all the legends that circulate around the newly named Shangri-La county, the "Snow Mountains" known simply as Mei Li are easily the most convincing. Majestic peaks alter the weather and thrill the crowds. There are no certainties about getting clear skies for sunrise, but true landscape photographers are a patient lot anyway.
Canal Town of Xitang
Xitang is a taste of old China, old Shanghai and old charms. Hidden away from the madness of Shanghai and its every expanding skyline, the remnants of Xitang's old town is something of a rarity. The town is both popular but photogenic, a genuine attraction for tourists and photographers that is close to Shanghai, yet worlds away.
Crazy Times in Kathmandu
Few names evoke the imagination like Kathmandu. To armchair travellers this destination conjures a romantic ideal of a gateway to the Himalayas. To seasoned travellers it's a necessary hub for journeys deeper into Nepal. For photographers the city is a vibrant explosion of cultures where inspiration is always around the corner.
The Best of Dordogne
My favourite thing about France is travelling through a nice rural region. A few good medieval castles perched on hilltops, some classic views of a chateau and the fabulous cuisine that lures both your taste buds and your camera.
