I love to travel, visit new places, meet new people and experience different cultures, most importantly though I love to photograph them. The brief for this book was simple - to share the best of my travel photos and interesting facts from around the world. Where possible I’ve tried to capture the mood of the scene, whether it’s exciting or tranquil, urban or natural, serious or odd!
My cameras of choice are standard off the shelf models that anyone can buy for less than £400. The majority of photos are captured on my Canon EOS 350d or my Canon Ixus 100is (the perfect shirt pocket camera). My only other equipment is my £10 tripod and £3 remote - both have been very useful for night photography.
I’ve kept post editing of these photos to a minimum, most have been cropped, straightened or enhanced using iPhoto. Others I have experimented with HDR using Photomatix and Photoshop. I hope you find this selection as inspirational as I do.
