Nikon AF-P DX 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6 G VR Lens

When you’re presented with an incredible landscape, as you are so often in the Nordic countries, which lens do you grab to best capture it? Should you really fork out on the cost of an extra wide angle lens for the sake of about 8mm? Well, in the olden days of prime...

Vanguard VEO 235ab & monopod

"Which tripod should I buy?" Is a question I'm often asked by other photographers, and largely, it's as personal a thing as buying a camera itself. Several requirements need to be factored in, such as the kind of photography you want to do, how long you plan on...

Tenba BYOB insert

I’ve briefly touched upon the difficulties a photographer faces when trying to search for the perfect camera bag in this post. - Do we ever achieve it? Does one bag really do everything we need and more? How many bags should we admit to owning, and how many must we...

Cheerz Photo Printing

In such a saturated digital age I love that we can still have tactile photo prints. They aren't and won't die out - we just need them in our lives! Though I'm not of the generation, I started my photographic life shooting film and developing it in a darkroom, and I...

SIGMA 18-300mm LENS

Lugging a heavy camera bag around just isn’t ideal when you’re out exploring on foot; my kit bag would typically contain my Nikon D7100 camera body, three lenses, a variety of filters, cleaning equipment, plus of course spare SD cards and batteries. Oh, and sometimes...

Lomography Colour Negative 35mm Film

Having recently made a Lomography Konstruktor camera, and fixed the shutter curtains on my Nikon F301, I was feeling inspired to take a wander and do things the old fashioned way! I would usually favour Ilford black and white film, as this is really where my...
