Shooting landscape photography often attracts the kind of person who is not afraid to be alone. Solitude is embraced and a sense of wellbeing arises from the time to ponder, to reflect and to review your current situation in life. Positive as this is, loneliness can easily sneak up on you so it's important to share your passion and talk about what you love. There is no better way to so thisthan to head out on a photography trip with friends or like minded people. It is one of life's true pleasures. Heading out on a shoot with other people is very beneficial. You can learn from each other, see how others work and talk about landscape photography all day long. Your skills will definitely improve. 

Reaching out

With this in mind I had wanted to do a YouTube collaboration for a while. I had been reaching out to numerous different people to try and make things happen (some will still happen) but arranging a get together is easier said than done. So when Andrew Marr contacted me saying he was heading over to the UK I knew something had to happen. Andrew is a talented landscape photographer from Australia and has been creating photography vlogs for nearly a year. His calming presence and thoughtful compositions have earned him a loyal following from around the world. We quickly realised our schedules were going to match nicely so we took the opportunity to meet up and go on a shoot together.

The Aussie connection

The day was absolutely brilliant and we spent the entire time talking landscape photography, YouTube, a bit of cricket and getting to know each other. It was a truly rewarding experience and I hope to repeat it soon. Both with other YouTubers and landscape photographers but also to make the return journey to Australia at some point. I would love to capture some sunset photography on those amazing Australian beaches. 

Please let me know if you would like to see me do any further collaborations. Tell me who, but maybe more importantly, tell them as well.

Landscape Photography Vlog - The wind tried to blow me off the mountain

A landscape photography vlog in the Lake District

In this landscape photography video blog I face some brutal weather conditions where the wind literally tried to blow me off the mountain.

Landscape Photography requires dedication and often a little bit of resilience in the face of bad weather. Often, following a bout with the elements, the conditions will open up and reveal an amazing photo opportunity at the end of the day. Pushing through the bad conditions would put most people off but for those willing to persevere, the rewards can be great. They can also result in a wasted, or less than successful day.

Safety

Clearly capturing landscape photography like this must be done carefully, bearing in mind the dangers presented by mountainous regions. Having the right gear like walking boots, waterproof clothing and a first aid kit is a must. It is also best to hike with a friend to back each other up.

If you take care though you will find yourself in locations offering amazing opportunities for capturing landscape photographs.

Haweswater Reservoir

In this video I travel to the Lake District and visit Haweswater Reservoir. This amazing man made reservoir is set amongst the mountains and provides drinking water to the city of Manchester. My photography trip today saw me climb the mountain of High Street, a long path across the top of the peaks near Keswick. Although the day started with fine weather, in typical fashion, this worsened as soon as I got to the top.

Photo opportunities were very limited at the top due to the very high wind, rain, cloud and sheer unpleasantness. It can feel pretty lonely when you are up there alone in those conditions.

The day ended well though where I captured a moody long exposure landscape photograph. Challenging conditions but a great day of shooting landscape photos.

Landscape Photography Vlog - Ullswater and St Sunday Crag

Vlog No. 7. In this landscape photography video blog I travel to the English Lake District again in search of the perfect sunset photograph.

When shooting landscape photography, planning is vital. I have spoken about this before but it is especially important with sunset photography. Finding the right spot with the sun in the right place is what can make the difference. Trekking out into the mountains ensures you will be achieving a unique shot that very few, if any, others have. You also need a little luck on your side that the weather will play along, especially in the Lake District.

I was also out to really put the Canon 5D mark IV through it’s paces for my upcoming review. The early indications are very impressive.
