Fujifilm 2017 Calendar

Fujifilm 2017 Calendar

I’ve been so busy with projects recently that I haven’t been updating the blog…I haven’t even finished editing the Azores photos. There’s lots happening though, quite a few projects that will be coming to fruition throughout next year that need all the seeds planting now.

In the meantime though, I’ve just received my official Fujifilm calendar for 2016 from Fuji. It’s a massive honour to see my image from Bali on there. They selected 6 landscape images from all their X Photographers for the A2 sized calendar and mine was chosen for November/December.

Azores Part 2: Faial

Azores Part 2: Faial

On our trip around the Azores we’d planned three nights in Faial, mostly because I was fascinated with the view it had of neighboring Pico and its mountain, but we soon realized that it was a beautiful island in its own right.

Azores Part 1: Pico

Azores Part 1: Pico

This year Teresa and I decided that we’d like to see more of Portugal so instead of booking an exotic trip to someone far away we’ve gone on short trips to different parts of Portugal, from Porto in the winter to Alentejo in the spring. For the summer we decided to spend 10 days travelling around some of the islands of the Açores, a place neither of us had ever visited and didn’t really know much about. The Açores is an archipelago of nine volcanic islands pretty much in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean midway between Europe and the USA.

Euro 2016 Final

Euro 2016 Final

When Portugal played France in the Euro 2016 final, win or lose, there was no way we could stay at home when half the city of Lisbon would be out cheering on their team. We walked through some of the main squares and thoroughfares of the city, as well as stopping off at a couple of bars and locals tascas to soak up the atmosphere with the tiny X-T10 and a couple of prime lenses.

Fuji X Passion

Fuji X Passion

It’s almost a year now since I ditched Nikon and started my relationship with Fujifilm and their fantastic X Series cameras. I haven’t regretted the switch for a moment and have loved using the cameras since I first got them.

Sleeklens Landscape Lightroom Presets Review

Sleeklens Landscape Lightroom Presets Review

My workflow for processing has undergone quite a few changes over the last year or so since I switched to using the Fuji X Series cameras. When I used Nikon my processing was completely built around the Nikon/Nik software Capture NX2 but when I switched to Fuji I obviously needed to build my workflow up from scratch. I spent some time using both Lightroom and Capture One as my RAW processor and although LR isn’t as flexible for editing as Capture One it’s Library system felt really intuitive.

Praia do Magoito

Praia do Magoito

A week or so I headed out to Praia do Magoito to shoot the sunset there. As we’d had some heavy rain over the previous days I set out early and stopped off at the waterfalls at Feverança and Anços on the way. Both of them had more water than I’ve ever seen there before, which combined with the lush green leaves made it the perfect time of year to shoot them.

Praia do Aroeira

Praia do Aroeira

My first visit to Praia do Amoeira last month really blew me away. I couldn’t believe the amount of potential the beach had and I knew then that I’d want to visit it again and again to shoot it in different ways and make use of the many different compositions available.

A Few Days in Alentejo

A Few Days in Alentejo

Alentejo is a large rural area between the industrial heartland of Lisbon and the developed coast of Algarve. We spent five days there over Easter to unwind and spend some time hiking in the countryside.

Praia da Ursa

Praia da Ursa

Ursa is an old favourite amongst photographers and a beach I’ve photographed a number of times. Until recently I thought the access to Ursa was really tricky, but compared to the neighbouring beaches of Aroeira and Ouriçal the descent and subsequent climb back up feels rather tame now.
