Landscapes are one of the most popular subjects for photography and having the right tools for the job, makes the experience and time spent of capturing the beauty of our world even more enjoyable. Having the right camera therefore, comes down to having the right features and specifications to match this subject, the shooting conditions and ultimately the final results. So, what is the ultimate landscape camera? In the days of film, it would perhaps have been a 4×5 large format camera, such as an Ebony or Linhof. Ultimate size for ultimate quality. With the advent of digital, the choice is even greater. No longer do you need to shoot with a medium format camera. Both Nikon and Canon have top end SLR’s, seemingly ideal for the job and if Canon’s new 5Ds isn’t the ultimate landscape camera, then what is? Continue reading
Steve Huff is quite a figure in the internet world of photography and his site (which he himself describes as ‘a site for digital photo nuts made by a digital photo nut’), reviews and promotes the world of mirrorless cameras.
So, I’m pleased to have written a Guest Post on his site about my own path into mirrorless cameras and you can read it here.
Do check out his site in general too, especially if you are considering buying a mirrorless camera, as it’s a great resource for reviews and opinions from all types of photographers shooting with these cameras.
For those interested in mirrorless cameras and perhaps my route into the Olympus OMD system, you may be interested to read my Guest Post on the MirrorLessons website.
This is a superb website deciated to all things mirrorless and here I talk about my Olympus system, why I love the cameras so much and a bit about my photography and courses in general.

My latest vlogs on my YouTube Channel see me shoot three different areas of London in two days. I start off on day one, photographing the Shard from various angles and viewpoints. On day two, I move along to St Paul’s and the City to shoot the cathedral from some new angles and get creative with the modern skyscrapers of the financial hub of the capital. Continue reading
If you don’t already know, I have my own channel on Youtube. Here I upload vlogs (video blogs) of me shooting various locations and covering a variety of techniques. There are currently four videos online, with many more ready to upload or in the pipeline to film and record.

My own creative work seems to be taking priority at the moment and its been a while since I was out in the landscape shooting with my Canon digital SLR. My camera of choice of late has been the fantastic Olympus OMD. This miniature marvel is a joy to use (and easily breaks too if you drop in on concrete, which I did within three months of purchase!) and the lenses available for it are both superb and pin sharp. My kit bag for it is tiny and featherweight compared to my Lowepro for the Canon gear, though with the amount of lenses I keep buying for the Olympus, I may need a standard large rucksack to keep them all in!
