I reported an issue to the WordPress Core team about eighteen months ago, noting that the function which creates thumbnails of larger images in the CMS strips the EXIF data from these smaller files. This means that not only is geo information lost, but so are keywords and copyright…
Yours truly, in action whilst photographing part of a multi-image panorama at Männlichen in Switzerland last weekend.
I enjoyed Terry Abraham’s earlier film “Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike” a great deal, so when I saw that Terry was making a new film featuring Blencathra, I jumped at the chance to contribute through a Kickstarter campaign. I can’t wait to get my copy of the film later this year and this…
We could do with a comprehensive, multilingual list of Swiss localities for work projects, so after a bit of digging and a suggestion from Habi, I came across a reference on which to base the list. After tidying it and converting it to tab-separated format (for optimal use in…

The Rescued Film Project discovers and processes 31 rolls of film shot by an American WWII soldier over 70 years ago.
Completely inappropriate to the season, but what the heck. A beautiful sequence of clips filmed – mainly with a drone – in and above Beatenberg, looking over the lake shores I call home. The film was made by Maximilian Eckmann whilst staying in a local holiday apartment.

Truly tremendous photographs by French photographer Alain Laboile. How is it that French (or French-speaking) people seem to have such interesting surroundings and an almost superhuman level of innate creativity?…
The Schilthorn – topped by the Piz Gloria restaurant – is one of my favourite destinations in the Swiss Jungfrau Region. Whenever I see photos or film sequences, I can’t help becoming a little awe-struck. I still have to pinch myself from time to time, to be sure that the fact that…
A hair-raising sledge run - our first of this season - in the awe-inspiring Schilttal valley above Mürren.
A goal for 2016 is to avoid putting things off when there is no good reason to do so. I’ve driven past the fire station in Bern’s Viktoria quarter on the way to and from work for five years now. Last summer, the fire brigade moved out and the erstwhile garage…
A video love story for the well- and lesser-known corners of Zurich.
Low water levels in Lake Thun in winter reveal large expanses of foreshore.
Relaxed portraits with a shallow depth-of-field at a recent company event.
First shots with two new acquisitions: a super-wide lens and an RR90 shutter release cable.
The staple of an outdoor drinks party in Switzerland - mainly in winter, but also occasionally during other seasons - is the Finnenkerze (“Finnish Candle”).
Before the proper snow arrived at the start of this year's winter season, we visited Zermatt and visited the famous, much-photographed view of the Matterhorn from Riffelsee.
After taking a while to get used to the smaller camera, the experiences over the past year with my Fujifilm X-T1 have been mainly excellent.
The Niesen casts a clearly triangular shadow when the sun is low in the sky.
Invergordon, a small town on the Cromarty Firth in the north of Scotland, which relies heavily on the local oil industry.
Technology introduced by YouTube last year allows you to click, drag and change your point of view inside a video: watching the action and looking around the camera in any direction.
This bag, which I’ve mainly used for equipment storage for the past few years, is for sale. It’s old and well-worn, but is still in good shape, with all zips in good order and (as far as I can see) no tears or damage. It comes with a small day…
A winter visit to the large beach at Brora, in the far north of Scotland.
