Sunset Riders – A Double Lucky Shot

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I was at Salgados this afternoon taking some shots for my next Algarve Resident Article and got talking to two young lads (great to meet you Bruno and Fabio, keep shooting!) and soon enough the sun was approaching the horizon.

As I was only armed with my 500mm prime lens, I look around for some ideas of a sunset shot.

I got lucky, a group of horse riders climbed on the top of the dunes of Praia Grande de Pêra giving me the perfect silhouette shot against the orange sky. I muttered to myself “…shame there are no clouds, there will be a lot of empty sky…”, then out of nowhere a couple of Glossy Ibis (there are a lot at Salgados right now) not only flew into the frame but also at a reasonable distance to be sharp enough as another silhouette.

A lot of photographers can be lucky and get great shots, but to be double lucky in the same shot it was fantastic! This image is already available to purchase in print in the web shop

2020 13-Month Wall Calendar Previews

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I have been asked so many times if I produce Wall Calendars of my photography and I’ve finally got my act together to produce not one but two for 2020. Each calendar is a selection of my favorite shots taken here in the Algarve in each of the two themes of “Algarve Sunsets” and “Birds Of The Algarve”. They feature 13 months (January 2020 through to January 2021) and are A4 sized with metal binders.

Here are the covers of both calendars and the video below shows a preview of each page. The first run of prints are currently being completed and will be able to be purchased in the Web Shop towards the end of this month!

Final Glow Of The Day

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

Last night’s sunset was yet again a colourful one. Not quite as bright as the last few days, but some clouds did add to the mood. On top of (what I call) Eagle Ridge had a great view of it, I selected a young Cork Oak tree to place in the foreground. I also wanted to capture the bright glow lighting up the foreground and the tops of the Pine Trees in the valley below me.

This image along with the previous night’s Crescent Sunset are available to purchase in the shop.

Are You An Artist Looking To Use My Imagery As References? Please Read…..

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

Firstly, I would like to thank all the other artists that enjoy my work, however, I am getting swamped down by the number of artists who request to paint, sculpt or use my imagery for reference purposes. Apologies for not yet replying to everyone, there is quite a lot of you!

Whilst photography is my passion, it is also my only source of income and hope everyone understands why I get protective of this source of income. Not only do I spend a considerable amount of time to capture my images, but also have invested many thousands (even tens of thousands) of Euros/Pounds in equipment.

Therefore, I have published a new statement on my website that covers my current feeling around this.

Please read this statement first if you are considering asking permission.

Requests From Artists To Use My Photographs As References

New requests will simply be directed to this statement.

Thanks for you understanding in my protection of my investment and return.
