The Iconic Liverpool Skyline - a panoramic photo on a lovely clear evening

Such a beautiful still evening in LIverpool town. The Liverpool skyline is ever changing and is always such an engaging subject to photograph. Was loving the interesting cloud cover and the chance to see stars over a big city is always a bonus!

Aerial Drone photography in Liverpool - some adventures with the Phantom 4...

What a magical night for photography in Liverpool - with the inclusion of the amazing LIbertad Tall Ship from Argentina. Always looking for different/unique angles - I took the Drone up to grab a few shots. This is the first shot I took on the beautiful Mersey River.

Then when I got back and looked at the ship - it looked vaguely familiar. I realised I had photographed her in her home country. A few years back I was out in Buenos Aires on assignment for Conde Nast Traveller magazine - and there she was in the beautiful Buenos Aires harbour at sunset. So nice to see her again!

The Liverpool Sky dances to the tune of Alan Turing in spectacular fashion last night... some photos from the waterfront

photo of the liverpool waterfront night time laser light display battle of the atlantic alan turing 2013 Last night the sky over the Liverpool city scape came alive with a spectacular laser light show as part of the Battle of the Atlantic 70 year celebrations. I was glad I stayed out a little big longer to capture the stunning laser light display that came alive as the sky over Liverpool City Centre darkened. The Morse Code laser light show was projected from the Royal Liver Building and was a tribute to Alan Turing who was instrumental in cracking the 'Enigma Code.' The Morse Code message is simply translated to "thank you"

Stay tuned for some more photos

Hahei, Coromandel - Blinded by the Stars... A Photo from tonight.

It's not often you look up in the night sky and see this... hahei coromandel photo of night sky

I'm not sure whether the moon is the right distance from the sun or the earth is spinning on a particularly unique axis... or whether i'm just back in good ol' New Zealand and the sky is as clear as a bell. I think it's the latter.

Such a stunning night for a moonlight stroll along the beach.

I just had to go back afterwards, grab the camera and take a couple of shots.

Celebrating the film-makers of Liverpool...

A great night out to celebrate some of the young film-making talent of Liverpool. Sponsored by Atlantic Chambers, and held at FACT - the overall winner was Paul Banner for his short film, The Thing About Being A Man. The night then carried on over the road to Alma de Cuba. It's always a challenge to photograph in Alma de Cuba, with there being little ambient light to play with. First shot is taken on a tripod with the ISO cranked up to about 1600. A live band came on later and it was a great chance to get the 70 - 200VR out and meter for the candle light behind the band. Quite like the silhouette of this young Chinese double-bassist - and even though there's not much light, there's always a few different shots to be had.
