National Geographic Traveller Photography Competition 2013

A few months ago I entered into National Geographic Traveller’s 2013 photography competition. The competition is split into a number of categories, including specific themes such as colour, action, faces, rural and urban. I selected the shot below and entered it into the urban category. I was recently informed by the editorial staff at the magazine thatContinue reading “National Geographic Traveller Photography Competition 2013”

Cannelle Bulard, or, ‘A Portrait of a Surfer’

I met Cannelle Bulard in the French town of Anglet at a restaurant on the beach, eating moules-frites and drinking ice-cold Coca Cola. She approached the table with her board before introducing herself. I then asked her a few questions and teased her about whether she was any good. She shyly informed her audience that she had travelledContinue reading “Cannelle Bulard, or, ‘A Portrait of a Surfer’”

Please note that whenever possible, I obtain permission from the subjects ofContinue reading “Street Photography I, or, ‘The Two Saints’”

America III, or, ‘The Wynn, The Cosmopolitan, and the Desert’

This will be the last post in my America series. Of the 1,000 photographs I took in Las Vegas, I feel those I have included in these three articles best communicate my experience of the city. I stayed in the Wynn hotel for a few days. It might be regarded as the epitome of opulence. I certainlyContinue reading “America III, or, ‘The Wynn, The Cosmopolitan, and the Desert’”

America II, or, ‘The People of Las Vegas’

I was in Las Vegas on business, but I spent some time walking the strip during the evenings. I asked a number of locals if I could take their portraits, and almost all obliged. Below is a selection of my favourites. Included is what I consider the best shot from the trip. Sometimes, what is missingContinue reading “America II, or, ‘The People of Las Vegas’”

America I, or ‘Landscapes in Colour’

I recently spent a week in Las Vegas. The next two or three entries in this gallery will contain images from that trip,  which included a drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. The below are a few landscapes. The Bellagio and Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, USA, 2013 The Grand Canyon, Arizona,Continue reading “America I, or ‘Landscapes in Colour’”
