How did you get into shark photography? Did the photography come first or the sharks?
I love this photo. I love the smoke, I love the skin creases…
A surprise encounter in the Grenadines…
Sometimes things go wrong in life. The printer at the car hire company breaks, the sat nav doesn’t work, the
You have to put yourself in my shoes.
Boots, really, with thick rubber soles to keep out the cold and to keep a foothold on the ice. Boots that worked hard and worked fast, striding between commuters in a winter-worn Budapest. Five feet, six inches above them, a troubled mind tangled through what it had just seen.
Picture the scene. You’re walking through a Swedish market, your young daughter holding your hand. She sees row upon row of sweet candy canes, bright luminescent swirls of sugar and mint that gleam in scarlet and white, holly leaf green and ivy, forming…
“Are you ready?” asks Christopher, a guide from the nearby village of Wieliczka. He’s cloaked in a long charcoal jacket and blowing on his hands to keep warm. For a giant-sized man, he uses a soft voice. “Because once we start, I will not be able to talk to you. And you will not be able to turn back.”
The older I get, the more I enjoy cooking classes. With an opening statement like that, I’m in danger of
