Follow Ewen on Mastodon

Why is Mastodon such a big deal?

A revolutionary social media protocal that offers decentralised networking and mentla health safe guards. Mastodon is part of the Fediverse, where thousands of servers are able to connect and share and define standards for their users. It's far more democratic, and it's all about building a community instead of an audience.

4K for Minimalists

4K for Minimalists

How much gear do you really need to get started with quality 4K video production? We tend to think that better video is about adding more gear, but smaller rigs and zero accessories is fast becoming the ultimate setup for engaging cinematography.


Life Without The Algorithm

Life Without The Algorithm

There's more to photography than being popular. Being genuine counts for something too. In the new frontier of the Fediverse the focus is on enjoying your craft instead of being crafted by the algorithm.


AI Is Not Your Friend

AI Is Not Your Friend

The lines between photography and digital art have never been more blurred. But what happens when you remove the role of photographer entirely?


DxO PhotoLab for RAW Workflow

DxO PhotoLab for RAW Workflow

DxO PhotoLab is a genuine alternative to Lightroom and Capture One, delivering excellent value and professional features. It's not as polished or featured as Capture One, but it's worth a look if you want something lighter for your RAW workflow, plus support for a wider range of cameras and lenses.


Learning To See

Learning To See

Capturing in B+W is not merely about getting a better handle on light and dark. Given a chance it can drag you much deeper into the entire point of photography as an art form.


Stars Over Uluru

Stars Over Uluru

I've written a few articles on the basics of star trails, but the finer details on making your trails look as lovely as possible are often where photographers struggle the most. This article explores the finer points from my annual visit to Uluru to chase the stars.



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!












Take a moment to step inside one of our workshops. Shellie does the styling and menus, while Ewen does the techy bits and lighting. And the food is absolutely SENSATIONAL!

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.
