Shot for the Day (25 October 2017)

Summer in Scotland and the weather was perfect. This one is reminiscent of the screensaver image for MS Vista from several years ago.

This image was created by stitching two images together to create the more panoramic 2:1 aspect ratio. It very much reminds me of an image I would have captured on my Horseman SW612 or Noblex 150 UX

The image truly does not do justice to the scene. It was one of the most incredible sunsets I have ever seen in Harris. It lasted for ages. Usually, the sun drops within an hour (hence a golden hour) but this last considerably longer, due to the longitude. This image is made up of 5 images stitched together, so the master RAW file is over 200MB, so I could fill an entire wall with this panoramic.

Taken a few years ago on a Noblex 612 panoramic camera, this is a shot of a fishing boat on the beach of north western Zanzibar. The fishermen had finished for the day and there was a significant rainstorm on the horizon.

Gothenburg river in Sweden

Last week I was in Gothenburg for business as is usual in my role.  After work, I headed over to the south side of the river to grab some end of day shots.  This one is of the north side, called Lindholmen, where our new office is located.

This version really does not do the shot justice as this is the result of stitching 5 images together and cropping some of the scene to either side of the image.

The open road ahead

In the mountains of Peru, on the road to nowhere, I stood with a friend, surveying the eerie landscape in solitude.  We ended up trekking up to 5000m and walking on the glacier you can see in the distance a couple of hours later, when the clouds cleared and the sun bathed the landscape.

High on a mountain

I have fond memories of walking up to the glacier above, undaunted by altitude sickness or concerned with the cold.  My companion had to remind me that a T shirt at that altitude and level of cold was not in keeping with an efficient circulation.

I will always have fond recollections of the mountains o South America, with Peru, Bolivia and Chile in particular.  All were familiar but unique in their own special way.

Bizarrely, both images above is about the size of my negative (6cm x 12cm).

Welcome to All Terrain

Welcome to the All Terrain blog. This is a blog based around photography and filming in all types of landscapes, in all weathers and any location.

Rather than continue to communicate through the antiquated channel of a static website, All Terrain Photos will now be broadcast via this blog. I hope to enter into a more two way communication in this way. Social media is a great way to integrate a very social skill, photography, into the collective consciousness.

I set up All Terrain Photos and All Terrain Films in 2004, after returning from a year in South America where I was an expedition photographer based in southern Chile for several months. I took the opportunity to take in new adventures and see some incredible things.

Upon re-entering life in the UK, I became involved in a lot of film work. I have worked with the British Army when they attempted to summit Mount Everest via the West Ridge in 2006 and with Ford on an online comedy shot across Europe during 2007.

However, my principle interest has always been photography. I shoot mainly landscape, travel and expedition photography all around the world. I am a panoramic specialist, shooting mainly 6×12 or 6×24. However, when mountaineering or trekking about the furthest reaches of the globe, a large camera can often be too cumbersome. So I shoot also occasionally shoot on 6×9 and digital.

For me, the main focus of this blog is to discuss interesting places to shoot, good kit to take along and exciting adventures to be had and open up a conversation with the wider world.
