Sorry for the lack of activity recently; I've been very busy with many things! I've recently become freelance in both photography and web development, so that's taken a bit of setting up. If anyone fancies some photography or post-processing lessons in London, or some Skype lessons around the world, please get in touch! Check out thefella.com for contact details.

There are still a few places left in my Iceland adventure workshop on 18th September. Head to f8.pe/iceland-sept-2014 for more information and to book.

This particular photo is from a trip around the Balkans I did last week. Myself and Mike Murphy drove around Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina. This is a lovely part of the world and Mostar is one of my favourite places we stayed. In fact, it was so nice, we stayed an extra night here.

In my mind, I had really wanted to get a high-key shot of a zebra crossing the road. This will never happen, I told myself, how often will I get to see a zebra, let alone one in this situation.

The answer is, several times a day. They're everywhere! There was one day we had to stop for about 15 mins as a line of plain's zebras about a mile long wandered through the savanna and across the road.

As much as this occurred, I still never tired of it. They are lovely animals and it's an amazing sight. This shot was at Etosha National Park in the northern part of Namibia. This is a high-risk malaria zone, so if you're going to visit make sure you take precautions.

This was also my first trip with my Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3. It's not the best telephoto you'll ever find and it's not particularly fast, but for the price it's an amazing purchase! Keep it below 450mm and it stays nice and sharp. Even at the top end, it's not unrecoverable.

Deadvlei is one of, if not the most, iconic locations in Namibia and somewhere I've wanted to visit for quite a while. It is a clay / salt pan in the middle of the desert; basically a marsh that has not only dried up, but lost water at such a rate that the remaining, dead trees have no moisture to decompose and are essentially frozen in time.

The salt pan is surrounded by very high, bright orange sand dunes, while the ground is a hard, white, cracked clay.

The common shots of here show the almost black trees against the vibrant orange sand and the bright blue sky. Instead of showing you my take on those shots, I first thought I'd show you something less common; Deadvlei at night.

I say night, but this isn't totally the case. You'll notice that the Milky Way in this shot isn't as clear and apparent as some of my other night shots. This is because this photo was taken just after sunset; I've never seen the Milky Way come out so early.

After shooting the sunset, I hung around for half an hour to see how the sky changed. The stars came out amazingly fast. Although I have other shots from this location that have a more defined Milky Way, I really liked the mood of this image. I hope you like it as well.

In the last few years, there's have been several photos that I've really wanted to capture for myself. A number of these have actually been in Namibia and one of them was capturing the amazing-looking quiver trees (Kokerbooms) under the Milky Way.

This was my fourth shooting location in Namibia, but one of my favourites. Sadly, the next place after this was about an 8 hours drive away in the very north of the country.

If you fancy learning some astrophotography, why not come along to my workshop in Iceland this September.

Monochrome capture of Skogafoss, one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland. (Also a common photo, but I like it).

If you fancy coming to one of my workshops in Iceland, then look no further. Head to f8.pe/iceland-sept-2014/ and join our weekend workshop or 10-day adventure happening September 2014.

The weekend workshop will be mainly landscape, smartphone and post-processing, while the adventure trip will concentrate on chasing the aurora borealis!
