RPS International Print Exhibition 157 – Featured

There’s something really nice about arriving back in England for a few days to find some of your work, in print, waiting for you at home. :-)

Myst - The willow trees of Glenorchy, New Zealand

Myst – The willow trees of Glenorchy, New Zealand

myst glenorchy willow tree solo silhouette lake water reflection blue morning sunrise winter cold fog mist paul reiffer professional landscape photographer photograph new zealand lake wakatipu

The bitterness of the cold winter mist across Lake Wakatipu in Glenorchy is the strongest memory I have of taking this photograph. Granted, it’s turned out better than I could have hoped for given my initial trip to these famous willow trees the night before – but wow, the weather really made me work for it.

The shot above, “myst” was actually taken around 7:30am, just before sunrise, and as the…

It’s an industry I’ll always hold a huge amount of respect for – not only did I learn the foundations of my own photography from those I worked with as a model many years (and burgers) ago, but the techniques I was taught at the time stay with me to this day when it comes to posing others in fashion and fitness shots.

Although primarily now shooting landscape and commercial work, every now and…

Portal - Capturing Xingping, the Guilin Mountains that Reach Up to the Sky

Portal – Capturing Xingping, the Guilin Mountains that Reach Up to the Sky

As they say, there are three types of lies in this world: Lies, damned lies and… weather reports. If I’d actually paid attention to the forecast, I would never have witnessed (let alone photographed) this scene in Xingping, near Guilin in Southern china.

Titled “portal”, this image represents a painful 3 days with almost no sleep – so maybe I’m too attached to it – but still, I do love that view.

Screaming from the rooftops – Shanghai at night

Shanghai really is a city that needs to be seen from above to be appreciated. The problem is that getting up there in the more traditional way (in a helicopter) simply isn’t possible – so there is a growing movement of photographers who (ahem) “access” rooftops with key vantage points across the city. It’s not a risk-free process by any means, but when you get up there and can look down at the…

“Never work with children or animals”, they say.

Luckily, the discussion I had with Per Aquum about photographing a 10th birthday didn’t relate to either. Instead, we were shooting memories of the staff at their stunning Maldives resort – “Huvafen Fushi” ten years on from its original opening.

New award winners – Px3 Paris, FIAP and RPC

Last week a few more shots got a little bit more recognition around the world as two competitions came to a close: The RPC – part of the Fédération International de l’Art Photographique (FIAP) 2014 and Prix De La Photographie Paris (Px3 2014). While not as well-known as other competitions, every now and then I submit a few images to “see how they do” around the world.

So it’s always a nice…

Auckland Revisited – From City to Coast

Auckland Hopetoun Road Spaghetti Junction Sky Tower Light Trails Traffic Freeway Night Cityscape Paul Reiffer Photographer Landscape Approaching the city of Auckland for the second time this year, I didn’t hold out much hope for a great set of images. Based on some of the weather “challenges” we’d encountered on the south island during this tripto New Zealand, despite being lucky with a few images it seemed that Auckland’s weather wasn’t set to be much better. Still, when you’ve travelled for 12 hours to get somewhere it…

The Whole Nine Yards – Cityscapes Case Study for Phase One

The homepage of Phase One looks a little different today, as their feature on my cityscape work appears as the headline story online. :-)
