More Algarve Resident Articles For 2019


Some of you may read my monthly articles in the Algarve Resident and of course the online version on the group’s Portugal Resident Website.

Today, I have renewed for 2019, so keep a look out for my articles in the edition out on the last week of each month and of course, I’ll continue to post links when they appear online. The biggest challenge I find with writing these articles is the topic, if you have any requests for any articles, please let me know!

All of my online articles can be found HERE.

New Service : Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoots!


If you’re a regular blog reader then you will know that I often post photos of Wally when we are out on our adventures. People keep mentioning that I should start offering this type of photography for other Dog owners and I have been considering this for some time.

So let me introduce to you Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoots! The idea of this new project is to offer something slightly different to the usual Dog Portrait photography that although is great, often doesn’t show the Dog’s real nature and character. On my photo shoots I will be accompanying you and your dog(s) and capturing photographs of them playing, running, sitting gazing into space and anything else you wish to capture all in a natural environment rather than a studio setting.

This photo of Wally is a perfect example of his character.

Wally Splashing Around In The River

If you have more than one dog, or even want to share a session with another owner to reduce the cost then this is also an option. Each session guarantees, at least, 10 digital photographs and also 1 professionally printed A3-sized Photograph per dog. Further prints will also be available to purchase at a later date in various sizes.

To celebrate this new project, there is 15% discount on all sessions, including Gift Vouchers until the end of January.

More details and prices can be found on the Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoots Page.

Colourful Sunset & Moonrise


Yesterday afternoon a thin haze, high in the sky was developing which usually results in a colourful sunset. I headed to the nearby Sapeira to get a shot of the sunset with the river bridge in the foreground. The colours did not disappoint with the sun lighting up the haze, as a bonus when I turned around to start packing up the Cold Moon (the name given to December’s Full Moon) was rising with the fading sunset still providing some colour.

My Drone Footage To Be Used In A New Portuguese Documentary


You may remember a film I created back in the summer called “Consequência – Depois dos incêndios” showing the destruction caused by the Monchique Wildfires.

Last week I was contacted by a film company who is making a new documentary titled “Tudo é Paisagem” (“Everything is Landscape”) about the History of Landscape Architecture in Portugal. This has been commissioned by the Associação Portuguesa dos Arquitectos Paisagistas (Portuguese Association of Landscape Architects).

Yesterday we agreed terms and I have supplied various shots for inclusion in their documentary. As you can imagine, I’m pretty excited about this collaboration.

I will share more information at a later date, but for now if you haven’t watched my film from back in August you can view it below;

FotoSul; My Venture Into Real Estate Photography


Some of you may already know that recently I launched my new photography venture, FotoSul. I have always said that I’d never photograph something I didn’t enjoy. Weddings for instance, it would be my worst nightmare and I totally respect anyone who shoots in this field! So when I decided to look into Real Estate photography I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it, however, the challenges involved in working with geometry in small spaces and very difficult lighting situations is something I very much find exciting.
