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.

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

Photo Journalism ...and trying new gear or ideas

I took this shot in January 2016 just outside the Rockefeller Centre in New York.  But, like any good street photograph, the time and place doesn’t really matter. A good …

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Spend any large $s on any other system, and eventually the lens mount will be out of date, or something in the camera will fail.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.
