Sometimes it's not possible to get your whole subject into an image, so think about different ways to show what you want. This is the Burj Khalifa framed by palms on a hazy and humid morning in Dubai.

Don't forget to think about panoramic images. This image of Le Louvre in Paris is a single frame made with a 36MP Nikon D800. However, it's quite easy to make several vertical (portrait orientation) frames and stitch them together in post-production. Think WIDE!

This image was made in Montmartre in Paris. It was a gloomy afternoon where everyone was taking cover from the rain. I was no exception! Sitting under a large umbrella, drinking a hot café latte, I saw this young couple opposite me. I framed the image and made the photograph. Just as I released the shutter, the young lady looked straight at me! I made my photograph and then we exchanged a smile. A bright moment on a gloomy day.

Don't forget to visit places at night... depending on the location you can sometimes get much better images than you would in the daytime. It doesn't always have to be a chore either. This image was made outside of Le Moulin Rouge in Paris. I simply stepped off the Metro and walked out of the station onto the street, crossed the road and made the image.

Photography is all about vision. Observing and seeing things. Sometimes it's simply about looking for patterns and a different perspective.

LAST DAYS TO RESERVE YOUR PLACE ON THE 'EXPLORE LONDON 2014' WORKSHOP ...
Photography is about vision; I love making photographs that tell a location’s story – the place, the people and the culture.
I'm a photographer with a relaxed approach. I'm an experienced traveller and love teaching others about photography. Images can be made anywhere - right in your back yard or in exotic overseas locations. I can teach you not only to look at your surroundings, but also to really "see" what's there. Photography is more than just pressing a button. It's also about vision.
Let me show you how to explore your world.
