Entries from August 2010

Out of the blue

Jo posed for me in the stairwell to an underground car park during last Sunday’s Swiss Strobist practical day, whilst I fiddled with the camera white balance to create an unusual effect.

Motor racing in the old city of Bern

I watched the trailer for the fifth version of driving simulation software Gran Turismo with great interest, when I saw that there are segments of the film containing computer-generated sections of the historic city of Bern.

All new Choo Choo

When Bern band Choo Choo were looking for a photographer for some new shots in June of this year, I was happy to step in and work with an art director to shoot the raw images for their website and new promotional material.

Tarbat Ness Lighthouse

The classic lighthouse of the children’s storybook is a tall white tower, banded with red and surrounded on most sides by the sea, looming above treacherous rocks and shining its light far and wide to tell people to stay away.

Take the tourist shot

When I first planned to hike to Bachalp above Grindelwald, I had envisaged not taking the photo above. However, the reception which the photo has received since posting it to Flickr has made me glad that I did.

Conquering Catbells

It had long been a goal of Jo’s and mine to extend our walking and “bag” one of the Lakeland fells. However, we hadn’t anticipated doing so in quite such a challenging way.

Timelapse – hike to Bachalp

As if the photographic splendour of the mountain hike from the Firstbahn cablecar station above Grindelwald wasn’t enough, I used the rest breaks we took on our hike this last Sunday to shoot a handful of timelapse sequences.
