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.
Moonlight and Auroras
Mixing in the light of the moon can bring a new world of possibilities to your aurora photography.
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.
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.
Aurora Photography Guide
Your guide to chasing the Aurora Borealis and capturing the moment on film. She is an elusive mistress, one that tempts you out into the freezing cold and darkest nights. She or gorgeous though, a mere glimpse worth travelling across the globe.
Doing Our Best
Be Your Best Tours is the natural evolution of my experience in travel. Since 2004 I've been designing and delivering photographic journeys to discerning travellers. Now it's time to make room for people who are happy to leave the camera at home.
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.
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.
