Barber Shop Photos 27 – Kalbarri

This will be the last Barber Shop Photos for now. I’ve enjoyed sharing photos, but it feels a little like I’m just filling this spot rather than presenting something I’m proud to attribute to Einstein’s Barber. This will mean I’ll…

Barber Shop Photos 26 – An evening in Oxford

These shots are all the result of an evening walk through Oxford. We had no time to set up the tripod (which is tiny) so it was an exercise in breathing as much as shooting.

Not all travel has to be far from home. One of the most rejuvenating short breaks I took last year was a weekend escape to Karridale Cottage and Hop Farm. I travelled to Karridale to help a mate out in…

A lovely spot in South Western Australia. Great for a family outing. The jetty here lends itself to great photos, particularly on a clear day. Awesome angles and a beautiful palate of blues. Perfect for a dip.

In 2009 I travelled to Dubai, Egypt and Jordan. I love the landscapes in this part of the world and there is something magical about wandering through the ruins of ancient cities. Jaresh was unexpected for me as I was…

Augusta in South Western Australia is one of my favourite day trips. It’s a rugged and beautiful spot about 5 hours south of Perth – It’s also the spot where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean. A spring-fed waterwheel…

Barber Shop Photos 17 – Laos Horizontal Waterfall

Barber Shop Photos 17 – Laos Horizontal Waterfall

I’ve always found it hard to capture the majesty of a waterfall. Something in the fluid motion always gets lost as you pull the trigger. It’s no different here – The mile long horizontal waterfall viewed here from the island…

Barber Shop Photos 16 – Petronas by night

Barber Shop Photos 16 – Petronas by night

If you spend any time in Kuala Lumpur, chances are you’ll find yourself in front of this iconic tower. We decided not to take a tour inside the building as the price was prohibitive considering the haze engulfing the city…

This week I’m looking back at my trip to Indonesia in July and of the sunset sessions looking out towards Komodo island. There really is something evocative about catching a shot of an active volcano. It’s worth remembering that there…

Barber Shop Photos 11 – Stilt fishermen in Sri Lanka

One thing that fascinates (and concerns) me about travelling is the effect we have on cultural and social practices as we trudge our way through countries that often have vastly different structures than our own. This shot of the stilt…

Barber Shop Photos 10 – Petra’s Treasury

Barber Shop Photos #9 – Fiji Sunsets

Barber Shop Photos #9 – Fiji Sunsets

  Sunsets are always fun to shoot. This one comes from Fiji. Palms, water and something on the horizon to help with the exposure, and the colours flow. In this case, I loved the island restaurant in front of our…
