Tasmania Photo Tour 2018 Finalised

December 9th, 2017
It’s been a long road, but we are finally there, our Tasmania photography adventure is ready! Tasmania has proven to be even more remote and wild than we ever anticipated. For one section of the planned trip through the Tarkine region we had such trouble finding any catering that we have actually hired our own cook to feed us.Tasmanian Photo tour-08
This is really a minor inconvenience, but these things take time to arrange and set up, thus the delay in finalising this tour.  But now it’s all done,  and you can read all the details on the Tasmania Photo tour web page.
We have a maximum of just 8 places on this tour and so far 4 spots are already taken, so if you are keen to come…

Phase One Vs Hasselblad Part 4

July 5th, 2017

Following directly on from the previous post Phase One Vs Hasselblad Part 3, talking about the decision process to buy either the Phase One XF-100 or the Hasselblad H6D-100

Dealing with Shutter Speed Limitations – Hasselblad

One of the major differences between Phase One and Hasselblad had always been the maximum shutter speed.  All the Hasselblad H series lenses have built in leaf shutters with a maximum shutter speed of 1/800sec.  They have flash sync right through their speed range, which is great for studio work but very limiting for landscape or natural light action.

Phase One Vs Hasselblad Part 3

June 20th, 2017

Following on directly from a previous post from some time ago… Phase One Vs Hasselblad Part 2

100mp CMOS Fantasy Becomes Reality.

In January 2016 Phase One finally announced the IQ3-100, the medium format digital back with the 100 megapixel CMOS sensor, the one I had been waiting for.  I had heard that Hasselblad were only a short way off announcing their 100mp camera system, and I wanted to see that before making any decisions.  Meanwhile I researched the Phase One system a little more.

Phase One Vs Hasselblad Part 2

May 25th, 2017

Following straight on from a previous post… Phase One Vs Hasselblad Part 1…  A few years back now I bought the Hasselblad H4D-60 and used it extensively and loved it.  It had its limitations, such as the 1/800sec shutter speed and the primitive UI, but the image files were worth it and the camera itself behaved flawlessly.  So why did I make the change to the new Phase One?

Phase One Vs Hasselblad Part 1

April 11th, 2017

I have spent years carrying around and shooting with a Hasselblad H4D-60 with a selection of beautiful Hasselblad (Fujinon) lenses, and the results have been outstanding.  The image files are razor sharp, have wonderful smooth tonal transitions and are an absolute dream to work on.  So why have I gone over to the dark side, traded the faithful Hasselblad for the Phase One black box?Hasselblad H4D-60 Camera Read the rest of this entry »

Iceland Highlands with 100 Mp

April 8th, 2017

Last Year in August I spent 14 days travelling around the Southern Highlands of Iceland with my Phase One 100 Megapixel camera, the (relatively) newly released Phase One XF and the IQ3-100 back.  Along with a range of Phase One, Schneider Kreuznach and Mamiya lenses it’s a very heavy camera bag!  So is it worth carrying all that gear?  Are the results really that good?  Well, yes.

Scoresby Sound Icebergs

March 19th, 2017

Scoresby sound in South East Greenland is the largest Fjord complex on Earth, it is also the least populated and has one of the most isolated communities on Earth….  Interesting stats, but the best bits are that it is completely unique and amazingly beautiful.  Seeing Scoresby Sound by boat during the brief far Northern hemisphere summer is definitely one of the highlights of my career so far.  To sail around surrounded by sheer rock walls hundreds of metres high in fjords that are hundreds of metres deep (I spent some time time watching the depth sounder on the boat completely awed), while massive ice sculptures that dwarfed the boat floated serenely past is truly something to behold.
