In this blog post I will reveal my top 5 best places to photograph in the UK. I also ask some flickr photographers their opinion on some famous locations.

5. Beachy Head, East Sussex, England

The Beachy Head cliff is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, rising to 162 metres above sea level. The peak allows views of the south east coast from Dungeness in the east, to Selsey Bill in the west. The contrast between the green grass and the white chalk cliffs gives photographs more of an impact.

I asked Alan MacKenzie a Flickr photographer What is the attraction of taking a photograph of the Beachy Head? Beachy Head marks the end of the South Downs and is the most striking and magnificent landmark in Sussex. I feel isolated from the civilised world and therefore able to forget all of my worldly responsibilities and create beautiful imagery. Whether I’m there in a snowstorm or looking at a blood red sunset, Beachy Head makes me feel privileged to live in such a beautiful world.

My Favourite Instagramers

 

Instagram Logo
In this blog post I will be sharing with you my favourite Instagramers. Instagram is a mobile photo sharing service that allows its users to upload their photographs and videos to the app so the whole world can see. The mobile app was launched in October 6th, 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. The company was then bought by Facebook in April 9th, 2012.

 

I absolutely love using Instagram to share my photographs but also to see what my friends are doing. It is also a fantastic way to become inspired to take more photographs. Below are my top 5 favourite instagramers, I asked each photographer why they like using instagram?

Exploring Vietnam

In this blog post I would love to share with you my photographs I took in february (2014) whilst visiting Hoi An, Vietnam for one week.

Exploring Vietnam

On the first day I landed at Ho Chi Min airport in the afternoon then I had an interconnecting flight to Hoi An where I was staying. I remember being picked up by a taxi at the airport and driving past buildings that looked like they were about to fall apart and people doing their washing up on the road. This was my first glimpse at the living conditions of the vietnamese. It started to make me think how lucky we actually are and how much we take for granted.

Interview: Roberto Pavic

Are there any tips you will give to my readers on how to take a photograph with a reflection?

The best way to take photos with reflection is to go to some lake. Also it has to be a day without wind or rain so the surface will become a mirror.

Spotlight: Tom Brune

In this post Tom Brune tells me a little bit about himself and his love for photography. Taking in account Tom is only 19 he has produced some great surfing photographs. It must be hard taking  a decent photograph because you have the current and spray of water to think about, not just taking the actual photograph.

Spotlight: Matthieu Lhotellerie

In this blog post Matthieu Lhotellerie tells me a little bit about himself and his love for photography. Matthieu Lhotellerie has produced some great photos showing different types of cultures and people.

I always had a fascination for photography and travel, cultivating them with exhibits, books & documentaries, but never owned even a compact camera until recently. Strangely I started photography because of a comic book called “Le photographe” (an appropriated name), a fascinating story from a photojournalist covering a humanitarian mission in Afghanistan during the 80’s. The book mix drawings and his amazing B&W pictures, and after reading it, I saved money for a secondhand Nikon D80.
