Chest Waders – user review

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

I took it as an omen, standing in the shallow water at the side of lake Buttermere and my foot going cold and numb, “that’s odd I have a wet foot, even with wellies on and no sign of any waves that may have gone over the top”.  No surprise then when I retreated to the shore to find that my welly had sprung a leak.  So what to replace them with, the more experienced members of the club were always extolling the virtues of waders, and chest waders at that, so time to give them a go.


Photographer’s Library : Jimmy Nelson – Before They Pass Away

Sunday, November 17th, 2013

Originally, this was suppose to be a review to a completely different book. But I had a delivery on Saturday….
Yes, all my notes about previous book went to one side, and I had to write few lines about this beautiful new addition to my photographic library. The title of the book is “Before they pass away” by Jimmy Nelson.


Review of Kata Photo Backpack

Thursday, October 24th, 2013


I purchased the above bag some 5 months ago as my current Lowepro Backpack was well beyond its sell by date, it was starting to let in water and was wearing out in places. This new Kata bag was not cheap, almost £150 so it should be good, although it must be 20 years since I last purchased a decent bag.


User review of the Canon 8-15mm f4L Fisheye Zoom Lens

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

I have always been a fan of Fisheye and Ultrawide lenses, right back to my film days, the first Fisheye lens I owned was a Sigma 15mm, all manual, all metal beauty that I still own (although I don’t use it anymore, it’s just a paperweight). So with the move to digital this was an area of creativity that I was sorely missing. I purchased a wide angle zoom, 17-40mm for my full frame body which was great for landscapes but I needed wider, I needed Fisheye.


Photographer’s Library : Sebastiao Salgado GENESIS

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

I remember the first time I saw one of the Salgado’s most famous pictures. I was amazed. It was one from The Workers project where man is trying to stop leaking oil setting on fire. Since then I was hooked and became a huge fan of Salgado’s work.
