Griff’s Photo Shop – 2014 Relaunch

It has been 10 months since the initial launch of the photo shop on our website. At the time there were only a select few photos on display and as we were on the road we didn’t have much control over what we could offer. The best we could do was to email a high resolution copy for you to sort out yourselves. For the tech savvy this wasn’t a problem, maybe only a minor inconvenience. Now that we are in Australia and I have finally sorted out 95% of the photos we have taken over 2013 (from over 7000 images) we can finally get some control back…

Western Kazakhstan Transit | Star Trail Photography

1

Wild-camping on the Desert Steppe

Three nights across the western Kazakh Steppe wild-camping in glorious weather allowed me the time to try out a few ND Grad filters and test out the long exposures required for star trail photography. Our transit to Uzbekistan was quicker than anticipated as we passed by hundreds of kilometres of nothing. We stopped briefly in Atyrau to get some cash and food taking the opportunity to register while there.

Bristol Photo Marathon 2012

Well the Second Look Photo Marathon 2012 here in Bristol has passed.  The format for those who do not know is you have/had from 1000 to 1700 to take a series of 20 photographs all of which had an outline theme (fire, earth, green fingers etc) and had to be taken in the order given. You returned the disposable camera and the organisers processed the films and put them all up for display at the Southbank Centre in Bedminster.
