How To Take Great Photos Of Wildlife

How To Take Great Photos Of Wildlife

It’s fair to say that my absolute favourite thing to photograph above everything else is wildlife.  There’s nothing quite like the feeling of getting up close and personal with a beautiful creature, and when all the stars align and the animal is in the right place, at the …

Being A Travel Blogger: Some Musings

Being A Travel Blogger: Some Musings

There are plenty of bloggers who blog about blogging.  To me that all feels a bit circular, a bit ‘meta’, but I can see how articles about blogging can be useful to other bloggers – I’ve even read a few myself. It’s not something I write about, however.  Partly …

How To Take Great Photos Of The Northern Lights

Viewing the Northern Lights is on many people’s bucket lists.  To be honest, it wasn’t really on mine. I certainly wouldn’t have made a special trip to Iceland just to see them, that’s for sure.  But since I was there for work anyway, and had the …
