Photography Packing Guide for Iceland

The day has nearly arrived for me to leave on my week long adventure in Iceland.  Thus, I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to show you the photography gear that I’ll be packing for that trip.  Now, it’s also worth mentioning that as a permanent traveller, I am actually packing all my belongings with me; I have to, as I’m always on the road.  However, this guide is a more of an explanation of the photo...

Getting the Shot in Bern, Switzerland

As a travel photographer, going through some of your old work is a bit painful at times.  Like any trade, art, or skill, with photography, you’re always improving.  It often means that looking back, well you find some gems some times, you also find images that you were once proud of and now think are rubbish.  For me, my disappointments have long revolved around an evening shooting in Bern, Switzerland about 3 years ago.  I...

The Best Tripod for Travel? Reviewing the 3 Legged Thing Brian

Cheese, Castles and Aliens: On Location in Gruyeres, Switzerland

Gruyeres is much like any medieval village in Switzerland.  It’s cobble-stoned, there’s a castle, there are lots of fondue eating tourists, and there’s an “Alien” bar.  Err, OK maybe the last bit is a bit unique, and it’s the reason I decided to make a day trip out to the town in the French-speaking region of Switzerland.  In 1998, H.R.
