the travel issue

One of my images from my trip to Iran in 2017. Having a clear idea of the type of images I wanted to capture made a big difference to what I had in the bag at the end of the trip. (CREDIT MIKE O’CONNOR) Travel photography is, and probably always will be, my favourite genre of photography. I cut my teeth doing it many years ago, and it’s something that continues to influence where and when I travel and photograph today. I think I like it because it’s a bit nebulous – you can shoot portraiture, landscapes, or architecture, and all...

spiritual journey

Loy Krathong is a spectacular festival celebrated throughout Thailand in honour of Buddha. The main happenings take place in Northern Thailand, in Chiang Mai, with festivities involving placing floating lanterns in the river, usually the day after the famous sky lantern release called Yi Peng. Loy Krathong takes place on the evening of the 12th month of the traditional Thai lunar calendar, which was difficult to determine when the dates change every year. Fortunately I was able to time my travels in Thailand around the festivities in order to experience and photograph the magic. The evening before I took this shot,...

a reflective moment

Colour played a roll in my decision to create a story of reflective moments is a small Greenland village. Canon 5DSR, 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L lens. 1/250s @ f11, ISO 800. On a recent Greenland expedition we stopped at the small village of Ittoqqortoormiit for a few hours. This is one of the most remote villages in the world. Lovely and colourful, but how do you make the most of an opportunity like this in a different way than just taking the same old shots? I encouraged my customers to enjoy their time walking through the village and look for images “outside the square”....

your best shot

SUMMERTRACE O’ROURKE ‘The offering’EDITOR’S COMMENT: Don’t feed the birds they say – but how would you get great shots like this if you always did that!? We love the moment captured here, and really like how you’ve included just the essentials too; an arm, a chip and a perfectly frozen bird in flight. Trace O’Rourke says she was enjoying dinner on the beach whilst waiting for sunset when she was scouted by seagulls. “While this one bird just hovered over us, I quickly grabbed my camera, laid back to view from underneath as we attempted to hand feed it, capturing the moment...
