There’s no worse time for being a landscape photographer than when the sun is shining and it’s a perfect day to go location hunting but you’re stuck in the office doing paperwork So I thought I would take some time to edit a few more photos from my trip to Raja Ampat – can you believe it was almost 4 months ago??!! That’s shocking even by my standards!
Fortunately, as with my landscape photography I do as much as I can in camera to get the image right underwater and so all they need is a tiny bit of developing like you would in film days so it hasn’t taken too long and I can get back to the paperwork!
Feel free to leave your comments
And my personal favourite…

I am really excited about this, I have had my first article publish in Outdoor Photography, the premier Magazine for Landscape Photographers. In May they have a National Parks supplement and I was asked to write about my favourite places to photograph in the New Forest, one of the most divers National Parks in the UK.
The article comes out in the May edition which is available to subscribers now and will be in the shops very shortly so keep your eyes out and take a look!
In the meantime here is a sneaky peak!

Paul contacted me many months ago to ask whether I could offer him a 2 day one to one photography workshop so he could gain a better understanding of the capabilities of his camera and help him improve his composition. We arranged to base ourselves in and around Christchurch in Dorset with Paul staying in the Windy Willums B&B as part of the price in March 2011.
We met on Wednesday 23rd March and ran through the theory behind taking great images and quickly wandered out to put this into practise on the beach huts down at Hengistbury Head followed by sunset in Keyhaven. Getting up bright and early on Thursday morning, we headed to Mudeford Quay and Paul for some cracking images using filters and some great compositional ideas. Using tripods to slow the whole thought and compositional elements of taking great landscape images was a revelation to Paul and his amazingly tall tripod and he certainly came away with soem great images and a much better understanding of how to make great landscape images in camera, nice one Paul!

Susan, Paul and James joined me the weekend of 19th/20th March down in Portland where we were planning to visit some of the iconic locations in the area and take some great photos. Neither Paul nor James had used ND filters before to stop down their skies and slow down water but after running through the theory on Friday evening both of them had mastered it in minutes at Portland Bill at Dawn on Saturday!
We had some great weather and some not so great weather (dull grey skies, the bane of landscape photographers’ lives!) but all of the locations gave us the opportunity to get some great images and really master the techniques of using filters.
Here are a couple of my photos from the weekend, I look forward to seeing Paul and James’ images, Susan’s are great!
