December 2013 update: I'm no longer working as a photographer

In 2009, I launched a company that makes business software for photographers, and now that company is so successful that I've regretfully had to put my photography business on hold indefinitely. You can find out more about this change on my blog.

If you're looking for a photographer, I'm still in touch with many amazing photographers and would be delighted to recommend them to you if you contact me.


Jökulsárlón iceberg

Posted in Miscellaneous at 15:05 on 13/12/2015

Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Iceland on a photography tour led by David Ward, Joe Cornish, and Daniel Bergman. I'll be posting more pictures from the trip as I finish processing them and find time to write them up, but I thought I'd start with one of my favourite pictures from the trip.


This is a small iceberg at Jökulsárlón, a large glacial lake on Iceland's South coast. I saw this image towards the end of the afternoon, and by this point I was feeling ready to call it a day. I was exhausted and feeling a bit down about my inability to see interesting pictures when everyone else on the tour seemed to be having enormous fun photographing lumps of ice, so I took myself off for a bit of a walk along the lake shore and eventually found the inspiration I so desperately needed in this wonderful specimen.

I love the contrast between the sharp, glowing edges of the ice and the softness of the water, which has been turned into a haze by a combination of rain and a a long exposure. More importantly, it perfectly captures the mood for me, which was all about finding beauty in a melancholy moment.
