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!

My Drone Footage To Be Used In A New Portuguese Documentary

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

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

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

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.

Coming Soon: Adobe Lightroom Workshop

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

I have been asked many times if I offer Post-Editing Workshops, until now it is something I have only considered. This consideration is now becoming more of a reality and I will soon be offering a new Introduction to Adobe Lightroom Workshop. This workshop will provide you with enough of an introduction to enable you to further improve your photography. I would recommend attending a Digital Photography Fundamentals Workshop prior to this but not necessary.

Everything But The Birds…

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

It has been a while since my Reflection Pool was completed, certainly enough time for the local birds to get used to it. This morning, I decided to have a session in there. I was in there from 8:20am until 12:00pm and nothing, absolutely nothing visited. There were plenty of birds all around me but for some reason nothing came down to the water. Luckily my WiFi from the house reaches there so at least I could entertain myself whilst I waited.

It is such a shame because as you can see in the photo below, the scene is looking really nice. Even hidden down behind the wood there is a tray with live Mealworms to try and attract the birds but still I await a photo.
