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 …

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by

I travel a lot and take enough photos with a a diverse amount of gear I decided to start sharing my photos, thoughts and reviews. I’m an avid Leica and street photography fan.

Posts, Reviews, and Ideas

I’m comparing what are two if the best cameras by two of the best manufactures with what is regarded as some of their best lenses as far as sharpness goes. …

I actually think this whole issue, and this page, should not exist. The debate about shooting RAW or JPEG is such a contentious one, far more than it has to. …

So I hope you checked out my photo of the Munich Residenz Antiquarium in Photo of the Day. I’m really fond of it, so wanted to explain how I processed it from …

All in all, I think in the high end amateurs will be keen on this and this could capture some people looking at Leica Ms. There is no doubt this …

Ok, so recently I used some Frequent Flyer points to upgrade myself into first class on a Qantas flight from LAX to MEL. Here is the video review I posted on …

I’m actually stunned I did this. The Las Vegas Skyjump is nearly 900ft high from the top of the Stratosphere Tower. When you get to the top all the over buildings …

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

This is heartbreaking. Here is a man who took up arms to fight for his country. To put himself in harms way in service to his fellow citizens. He lost lower right leg for it. His service cost him dearly. More than he has ever been repaid. And yet, for …

Well according to his Facebook page: Simeon Baker is a young solo acoustic musician predominantly known for his Percussive Guitar ‘Lap Tap’ style. He cut his teeth regularly busking in …

Gee, reflection photography is one of those things. Loads of photographers starting out think they can take a photo of a reflection of a building in another glass building or …

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.
