Is Kodak Portra a film without character? For me, for what I want from film, yes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to be negative about what is an …

About Me I love photography, travel, reviewing gear and making technical tutorials.

This site is all about sharing my photos, and providing insight on where to get some great shots around the world.

Leica Rangefinder Fan

I’m an avid fan of Leica gear and after using loads of compacts and DSLRs from Canon, Nikon and others, I have settled on the Leica M system.

What I love about it is the timelessness of the lenses, and that I am able to shoot with a system similar to that which was used decades ago. Leica Ms rely 100% on the skills of the photographer…

…the result is always 100% your own work, not the work of computers in the camera.

My Favourite Type of Photography

Street photography. Particularly at night.

One of the things I love to do is walk around after sunset ad photograph all the lights, shadows and look for whatever we don’t normally notice about what is happening after dark in public areas.

Please contribute

Please get in touch, if you want to share photos or reuse mine, share ideas I’d love to hear from you. I want to create a resource for photography, review and any creative or photo journalism ideas. Always keen to hear from people.

Photo Journalism ...and trying new gear or ideas

So…I got to try a Noctilux! But unfortunately only for 1 hour. The Leica Noctilux is the lens most Leica users strive for. At nearly $A15,000 new, this is a 50mm price F0.95. Yep, thats right, F0.95. I don’t techically know how a lens can go below F1.0 (which is …

The weather is still awesome. People are still enjoying this awesome weather. I’ve taken the time with some more recent street photos to get back to the essentials of street photography. …

My Camera of Choice Leica Ms

Well, I don’t have a camera of choice.

I have a system of choice, and that system is Leica. Full Stop, Leica. Sure, they are handmade and uber expensive, but, the Leica M mount lenses have kept the same mount since the 1950s. Their systems will be compatible for years to come.

Spend any large $s on any other system, and eventually the lens mount will be out of date, or something in the camera will fail. With Leica, systems will be around forever. Beat that for value.

My Leica Lenses and Bodies

I love the way it is very component like. Very modular, built by hand. Very widget and practical. Can fit in a pocket easily. No strap holes though.

The Leica MP rocks. Technically, this 35mm film camera is built to be tough, simple, reliable, and to be that photographic companion for the lifetime of the owner. This is …

Quick update: Check out the Latest Sharpness Test. The Leica 28mm F2.8 Elmarit is not one of the most expensive (Leica) lenses, but sure is one of the best performing …

In my view, the 35mm Summicron is the sharpest lens made by Leica. Hands down. I’ve made some samples available in full resolution to show off the power of this …

There are two versions of the Leica 50mm F2 Summicron. The non APO, or the amazing uber expensive APO. Both are F2. The APO is, by accounts, way sharper, but this …
