The Best 35mm Lens for My LUMIX

The Best 35mm Lens for My LUMIX

If you appreciate the value of a 35mm prime lens, you’ll also appreciate that there are a good many 35mm designs to choose from now. Here are my favourite two 35mm lenses from Panasonic and Sigma, both for full-frame L-Mount bodies, and why they appeal to such wildly different photographic styles.


Doing Our Best

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.


Auroras and The Lumix G9

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.



We're just back from Nepal and our hard drives are choc full of luscious images from the lower valleys in spring-time, and the majestic Annapurna Ranges. We had a great group of companions and some magic moments with the camera.

Take a look at the latest video we made for Be Your Best Tours.
Sound ON!

We Made A Cookbook

My craft is photography. Mostly I capture images for someone else. Their brand, their book, their magazine, their story. It's the same for my wife, Shellie, who is also a photographer and stylist and recipe developer. Together we've been able to make something for ourselves and we hope something that everybody else will love as much as we do.

Walk With Me

Ewen Bell walks through a series of photos, taken while walking local parks with camera in hand. Each video reveals insights into processing those images as well as insights into the experience of capturing them. Birds and flowers will be the main focus for this series. Ewen wants to share the joy of taking a camera for a walk in the park and making beautiful images along the way.

Bhutan

An absolute privilege not only to capture this side of Bhutan but then to write 2000 words as well. F&T is a gorgeous magazine and I love seeing 14 pages filled with the best of the Himalayas.
