Thanks for sharing that pretty much aligns with the contents of my bag but I am interested in your wireless mic's what make are they and does it plug into the gopro or do you record to an external recorder and bring it together in post? Thanks chris.

Another good video its great to hear somebody talking sense. Most of my photo trips are day trips, life gets in the way too much but when I get on multi day trips I find I relax into the location and a better set of images flows. It would be good to hear your process on location especially on short day trips how do you get in the zone and find a set of stunning images what's your location process?
BTW subscribed at episode 1 ;-)

Great video, you always resonate with me.
Following an accident I had to change the D800 kit for something lighter so as a primarily landscpae guy I went for the Sony A7R (A6000 & RX100mk3 as well) and boy its a revelation I enjoy my shooting so much more and the quality is even better.
Yes mirrorless is not totally there for wildlife shooting but I was very impressed with the results I got recently photographing Puffins with the A6000 the frame rate and focus accuracy was stunning.

Off to watch the other video's now :-)

Story
Tagline
Landscape photographer, web technologist and motor sport enthusiast. http://www.chrisnewhamphotography.co.uk
Introduction
I am a self-taught photographer, I love the large sea/landscape I usually take my photos at dusk and dawn, pursuing a dramatic edge when the light is at its best, my photos are a personal interpretation of the subject, not pictorially accurate but to convey how I felt about the subject. Although drawn to sea and landscapes I will photograph anything occasionally doing motor sports, still life and when I can find a subject, knackered looking buildings. 

I’m from Nottingham in the English midlands about as far from the coast as you can be in the UK – I'm constantly looking for dramatic locations, like the Derbyshire Peak District or the glorious Isle of Skye. I want my images to make the viewer draw breath as they take in the sweeping landscape or the crashing waves so I make the effort to go to the best places at the times when the light and conditions are optimal to get a dramatic scene. 

There are so many great photographers, when you are competing, it can often be that extra edge that elevates your image into a ‘win-zone’ and I find the challenge of competition motivating pushing me to up my game and produce better photographs. 

I have made great friends through my love of photography and a sharing a passion for dramatic locations with like-minded explorers like Ian Pinn/PinkyPinn and Scott Wilson/wilsonaxpe amongst others – check out their work - you won't be disappointed! 

So much about our trips is about trying to nail those ‘winning’ images that will attain competition or exhibition standard but, more than anything, the shoots I share with these guys are great times, some of the very best and you can't ever really capture that sense of fun, adventure and comradeship in a photo.

My cameras are a Nikon D800 and a Sony NEX7, I always shoot in Raw and I use Lightroom, photoshop, onone & nik software for post processing, when I have completed a photo I print it out to display in exhibitions, use in competitions and put on my office walls, I love holding a large print.

So, that’s me, photographically speaking…. I hope you enjoy my work and experience even a fraction of the pleasure from my images that I get from shooting them. I’m inspired daily by the great work I see on Google+, Flickr and 500px and it just pushes me to want to get better and go further…. Here’s to the next great trip wherever that may be. 

Prints of my work are available for purchase from my website http://www.chrisnewhamphotography.co.uk
