Silver on a Cloudy Day

Silver on a Cloudy Day

A good tripod and very slow shutters combine to make a little silver from a cloudy day. So long as you don't mind getting your feet wet, or that tripod.


Angkor Wat and Siem Reap

Angkor Wat and Siem Reap

Angkor is special. Crowded, popular, humid, hot and special. There are a lot of people who visit this place, but because it's special. It's one of those places that lives up to the hype. Hordes of tourists and scores of relentless souvenir sellers are the serious downside, have no doubt. But despite these impedances you can get great shots of the ancient ruins and contemporary culture.


Great Ocean Road Photography

Great Ocean Road Photography

Images of this rugged coastline attracts international attention from travellers and photographers, but you don't have to be Ken Duncan to get a great shot. Taking your time to make the most of the inspiration at hand is one way to improve your pictures, the other is to take a professional with you.

Asustor Lockerstor AS6510T Long Term Review

Go Slow

As travellers we have a decision to make, whether we want to take the time to immerse ourselves in new experiences or just tick destinations off a list. Photography is no different.


Nepal Photography Tour

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.


What is Creativity

What is Creativity

One of the greatest struggles we have as photographers is building our creative skills. For many of us it's hard to even define what creativity is. This feature is an attempt to give you a foundation to tackle creativity and some inspiration to build your own path.


Landscapes

Landscapes

Landscape photography is a specialisation on its own. A demanding travel schedule puts limits on what you can practically achieve with landscapes, but just one really good image can bring a unique context to your destination set.
