Some snapshots... I have arrived home from an incredible time in Brussels as winner of the Europe in my Region photo competition organised by the European Commission. Thank you @europeancommission for the wonderful
hospitality show to me and my family.

While in the city I had the chance to attend an insightful photowalk with Emily (@emilyanesmith) from @lesphotographes, who recommended some excellent photo spots in the city.

On Tuesday evening, the privilege of attending the 15th Regiostars Awards, the yearly competition honouring Europe's most inspiring and innovative regional projects.

Finally on Wednesday, a whistlestop tour of Brussels on a photographic commission with Visit Brussels. I'm very excited to share these photos with you in the coming weeks.

๐ŸŽ… Christmas mini photoshoots
๐ŸŒ Porthyrhyd hall, Carmarthenshire
๐Ÿ“… Oct 21 & 22, 10am-4pm
๐Ÿ‘‰ https://www.facebook.com/events/116468929097515/?ti=as

I am doing mini photoshoots at the local Christmas fair this year for children and families. Last year was a tremendous success and I'm delighted to be invited back for a 2 day event this year. Those of you who watch my Insta stories will already know I've been hard at work making props... and that my son might well be the best model in the world ๐Ÿ˜
This is an example of the sort of photos I take; I've got a selection of backdrops and props to choose from.

If you're also in south west Wales, you're welcome to pop along for a mini photo shoot on the day.

Tag any friends who'd love to get some festive portraits taken.

A huge thanks to all who attended today's Instameet in Cardiff despite the pretty rubbish weather - there was thunder and rain of biblical proportions this afternoon! Please remember to tag your photos with #WWIMcardiff #WWIM16
I hope to meet you all again at the next Cardiff Instameet - that will be arranged by the regulars @igerscardiff so make sure to follow them for more info.

The first 40 minutes we spent sheltering from the rain in the Senedd, then the clouds became just patchy enough to enjoy the afternoon.

Here's a selection of my photos from the day.

Remember that @igerscardiff are running a "people" themed competition this weekend so tag any photos with the hashtag #igerscardiff_wc20 - we saw a lot of Doctor Who cosplay today, I even photographed a pint-sized Dalek running around.

I'm delighted to have some of my work showcased in this month's issue of Singapore Airlines in-flight magazine "Silverkris". The main photo is of the spectacular Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum in Singapore's Chinatown - it's one of my favourite photos.

Thanks to Olivia and the team at Singapore Airlines for getting in touch and making this happen, and my little family look forward to flying with you in the near future.

Late afternoon at Green Bridge, Pembrokeshire

I am delighted to be working with Kase Filters to test their Wolverine 100mm filter series. Over the coming weeks I'm preparing a lengthy review including before and after photos taken at some of Wales's most
scenic spots.

This is the first photo of the series, using the Kase KW100 (10 stop) filter, and circular polariser. The KW100 filter allowed me to take this massive 210-second exposure in broad daylight! It's got a very low colour cast, and I'm reliably informed that the filters are shock and water resistant but thankfully I didn't have to test that for real!

A magical evening with perfect weather conditions to watch an outdoor screening of Jurassic Park at The National Botanic Garden of Wales last night.

When I was a boy I went to the cinema with my parents to watch Jurassic Park when it was first released. 24 years later, I got to watch the same film with a son of my own.

If you'd like to watch an outdoor film screening in beautiful surroundings, they have one screening left this season - Jumanji - on Friday, September 8th. Some tickets remain, and your ticket also gives you day access to the gardens so you can make a day of it.

Technical details about the photo:
Nikon D810
12 mm f/2.8
A blend of two images:
f2.8 20s/ISO 3200 for the stars, and
f8 10s/ISO 800 for the foreground

Cardiff Bay Instameet
Saturday 9 September @ 1pm
Meet @ Pierhead Building

SAVE THE DATE! Join me and a bunch of other Instagrammers for the Instameet as part of Instagram's 16th worldwide meet up. This is an informal and FREE event for Instagrammers and photo enthusiasts to meet up in the real world - exchange ideas, socialise and take some photos together. Make sure to tag your photos with the hashtag #WWIMCardiff #WWIM16

We will meet outside the Pierhead Building at 1pm and set off on a small photowalk taking in various viewpoints around Cardiff Bay and then head for a coffee afterwards.

The "Weeping Window" of poppies is an art installation outside the Senedd building; we'll have a opportunity to get some photos of that (it leaves on September 24th), and also the Challenge Wales tall ship is due to be sailing around the bay, so some good photo opportunities should be happening.

Hopefully the weather will play nice but if not... bring an umbrella!

All ages, abilities and camera types welcome - all you need is an Instagram account.

This surreal shot is captured in-camera, no Photoshop trickery, using a light painting tool called a Pixelstick. Shot on Llanllwni mountain in Carmarthenshire using my cousin's VW camper van as an awesome prop.

Who saw some meteors this weekend? ๐ŸŒ 

We were lucky enough to have very clear skies over the Brecon Beacons, and I captured over 30 meteors on camera. This photo is a composite of several of the largest meteors that fell during a 35 minute period over Llwyn Onn reservoir.

As always, if you enjoy please like and share, and you can also join me on other social networks

The Perseid meteor shower hits its peak this weekend. Earlier this week I visited the Pembrokeshire coast to hopefully capture some on camera. I was very pleased to find this photo among the collection, although since posting it on Twitter an astronomer pointed out it's not a meteor at all but a satellite flare! Nevermind - an image I'm pleased with all the same.

Wishing you clear skies for observing the meteor shower this weekend and even if you don't capture the meteors on camera, who knows what else you might catch

Paxton's Tower at sunset

Paxton's Tower is a Neo-Gothic folly erected in honour of Lord Nelson. It is situated on a hilltop near Llanarthney in the Towy Valley, Carmarthenshire, Wales. Up here you can see for miles around, and into the valley below you can see Dryslwyn Castle.

Introducing George

I haven't been very active on my social media channels lately but with good reason - our son George was born 6 weeks ago. Mother and baby are doing very well. Naturally the focus of my photography has moved to him - I've converted a room of our house into a photo studio! Expect to see the results of our many photoshoots as well as my usual travel and landscape photography.

This particular photo was taken with these settings

Palace Reflecting Pool, Dubai

The reflecting pool in front of the Palace hotel in Downtown Dubai. I shot this with a Venus Optics Laowa 12mm prime lens and only just got the top of the Burj Khalifa in frame. For even a 18mm lens you will probably have to capture this as multiple exposures and stitch together as a vertorama.

Batu Caves are formed in a limestone hill on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The main temple of Murugan is a Hindu shrine that sits in the centre of the caves, 100m and a steep 272-step journey above ground. In the caves, monkeys and backpackers jostle for position and birds fly overhead.
