    Cape Town Is Different

    Cape Town is different. While it sits at the toe of the African continent, visitors to this city might be forgiven for thinking that they have arrived somewhere else entirely. It doesn’t look very African and despite many attempts to make it seem more like an African city, you might easily mistake it for a lesser known part of Europe on arrival because wherever you go you will hear foreign languages being spoken. There's also these looming mountains everywhere making it look like it could be the Alps. Even the climate is different to the rest of Africa’s. They actually have discer

    10 Years Of Safaris

    This year I am celebrating 10 years of hosting wildlife and cultural photographic safaris. In this thread I will take a look back on those 10 years and relive some of the stories and images that I made on safaris during that time. So where and how did this safari stuff all begin? The idea of putting on safaris was sparked way back in 2006, in the very early days of the Nikongear forum. A member named Jorge contacted me and asked me if it would be OK if he started a thread asking the rapidly growing NG membership if anyone would like to join him on an expedition to Pat

    La Palma

    Last week my wife and I spent a week on the beautiful Canary Island of La Palma. This small island is a popular destination for hiking lovers as the mountain scenery from volcanic origin (malpais) is challenging and there are lots of hiking trails. My wife and I though hired a car and spent three days driving around the island, enjoying the landscape and views. This series was shot with an Olympus E-M10, Olympus E-M10II, Olympus 12-40mm f2.8, Panasonic 35-100mm f4-5.6 and Samyang 7.5mm f3.5. As a polariser was used on the 12-40mm, it took a bit of effort to co

    Danum Valley, Borneo

    The island of Borneo is essentially divided into two parts – Sabah, which is Malaysian Borneo and Sarawak, which is Indonesian. In addition, the tiny nation of Brunei is squeezed into 5000 square km on the West Coast of the island. The Danum Valley Conservation Area is approximately 400 sq kilometres of virgin rainforest located on the eastern side of Sabah. The most common way of getting to the area is on a 2 and half hour drive from Lahad Datu and the only place to stay is at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge (BRL). I have been meaning to do a write-up on the place because it really was

    Working on Travel Kit

    I'm looking for some input from this international community on an upcoming trip. I have a new X-Pro2 with 18-55 and 35mm f/2 that will be going along. My wife will be taking her Nikon N1 V2 with 10-30. On recent trips to Italy and Turkey, the N1V2 and X100 (for me) have been our main photo gear. This trip is two weeks in Spain; Barcelona, Segovia, Madrid, Toledo, Granada, Ronda, Arcos, Sevilla. We are traveling light and this kit is at first glance sufficient given our typical photo needs in largely urban situations. I am wondering about whether a wider lens might be useful. F

    Istria

    Back in June I did a trip to Croatia. I am just finishing editing the photos now Almost all shot with the X-T1. I have found the X-T1 and excellent travel companion and all the lenses very good - the 14mm and 23 are exceptional. I will start with Pula (Pola), then post more on other places in following days. I am immensely indebted to Rudolph Abraham for the excellent advice he gave for this holiday. He is truly and expert of the area and his Bradt guide to Istria is a must if you want to visit.

    May The Light Be With You

    A couple of days ago I was commissioned to take some photographs for a company who has used my services a few times in the past to produce images for their annual report to shareholders. I love these types of jobs because it involves travelling to places that I would never normally get to experience. This particular client is very involved in helping to develop entrepreneurship in rural South Africa so the places we visit, while not always particularly easy on the eye, do present some unique shooting opportunities. This was the first time I was going to be using the Olympus stuff for this kin

    The Nothingness

    This desert seems to roll on without end. It's like one very long and undulating beach. Wherever you look there's only sand and more sand. It's nothing and everything all at once. A stark, barren reminder of just how harsh the earth's surface can be. At one time this place must have looked very different, perhaps it was full of vegetation once and slowly over millions of years it developed into this dry, sandy patch of the earth's skin. The geologists will have a theory on that, no doubt. But for me, in this moment, all I can see is nothing and nothing is more powerful than that. click to en

    Safaris for 2014

    It is with a lot of pride and happiness that I can unveil for you today our new-look Photographers.travel website. I've worked really hard on this over the past month and a bit. The site has been completely re-designed with the main aim being to present as much useful information about the safaris we're offering in 2014 as possible. I do hope you like it and if you find any incorrect links or bugs please let me know. With that said I'd like to just give a quick overview of what we're offering in 2014, as well as what we're looking to do in 2015. The Namibia safari was very well received this

    Bamako, Mali

    I had the chance to photograph the national zoo in Bamako, Mali. I only got a few days there, prior to the zoo being open to the public but thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet the people and the zoo. Here are some impressions. Here is a link to my blog on the topic.

    Waiting for X100 Firmware Update

    What to do while waiting for the (last) X100 firmware update? This has been a very disjoint and busy summer that has left very little opportunity for exploring photography. Today somehow opened up and my wife and I jumped on the train to Chicago. I quickly checked if there really was a firmware update issued today; but possibly later. I grabbed the X100, a bottle of water, spare battery and headed for the train. We headed for a very special exhibit at the Chicago Art Institute: http://www.artic.edu/exhibitions/impressionism-fashion-and-modernity . To my surprise and unlike general poli

    A few days in Iceland - day 2

    On the second day in Iceland my plan was to drive from Reykjavik along the south cost to the east to see some waterfalls. But while the weather in Reykjavik was nice and sunny, the south cost was under a cloud cover and then rain. So we did not visit all the planned places but returned early. Still I managed to grab a few. The black and white images where planned as such even before the weather conditions intervened. Wood art or sign post next to the entrance of a camping place: Gluggavoss Seljalandsfoss: Relaxing in front of Seljalandsfoss: A very old ram, it looked like the
