Back in March I went to Belgrade to photograph a feature on city life for National Geographic Traveller. 

I timed my trip perfectly to coincide with the Beast from the East. The weather was mostly awful, although I got a two hour window towards the end of my stay when the sun came out. 

The problem was the pictures were for June Issue of the mag. It was certainly a challenge, contending with the snow, hats and scarves, and Christmas decorations still hanging around town. I've never had to think so hard on my feet and come up with some creative angles. Fortunately there was a lot to photograph inside the beautiful churches and museums about town. 

Here is a selection of images and cuttings from the mag, and a BTS pic courtesy of my friend and travel buddy Chavala Madlena.  Belgrade City Life-145Belgrade City Life-145Belgrade Fortress: the Fortress consists of the old citadel and Kalemegdan Park on the confluence of the River Sava and Danube, in an urban area of modern Belgrade.

http://www.davidtett.com/blog/2018/2/rich-photographer-poor-photographer Rich Photographer Poor Photographer

My friend and fellow photographer Richard Bradbury recently sent me a copy of his new book Rich Photographer Poor Photographer, in which he included a section about me and my work as an editorial photographer. I'm really honoured to be included in this excellent reference guide for budding photographers looking to set up their own business. My advice - be decisive! If you have a hobby you're passionate about and want to pursue as a business then you have to throw yourself into it. When I started out I didn't have a clue what I was doing. In the beginning it's important to create a business plan, to network, build an online presence. At the same time it's hard to disguise the fact that you're acting blind. Personally not knowing what's around the next corner was part of the excitement, as well as meeting new people and making new friends. book 2book 2 bookbook

Last year my photos from St Olav's trail in Norway that I shot way back in 2014 appeared in two beautifully designed books: Wanderlust: Hiking on Legendary Trails published by Gestalten and Great Hiking Trails of the World by Rizzoli. There are some many amazing hikes in this book I feel honoured to have my pictures featured in them. You can't help but be inspired by some of these walks. It just makes me want to grab my boots and set off on another adventure.  DSC_1695DSC_1695 DSC_1698DSC_1698 DSC_1702DSC_1702 DSC_1707DSC_1707 DSC_1713DSC_1713 DSC_1715DSC_1715 DSC_1728DSC_1728 DSC_1719DSC_1719 DSC_1718DSC_1718

I've been working in Malawi with NGO Dignitas International over the past week. They provide healthcare services, counseling and support to communities in the southern regions, with their main office based in the town of Zomba.

It's my first time in Malawi - the people here must be some of the friendliest on the planet. It's no wonder they call it the warm heart of Africa. For years the country has been one of the worst hit by HIV-Aids but thanks to charities like Dignitas things are improving steadily, helped by a growing economy as well.

Below is a selection of portraits of some people I've met this week.

I photographed the BTS filming of Julius Caesar a couple of months back and it was high time I posted something here. This was an interesting shoot not least because I had to be completely silent during the filming of the play. I used a mirrorless camera to avoid shutter noise, namely the Fuji X-T2 which I hired for the job. A fantastic camera, really impressed, so much so that I'm gonna to have to get one soon. Not yet time to replace my DSLRs though... for one the battery life is awful. But what really grabbed me was the image quality especially in low light. Really not far off even the best DSLRs.

I've recently been published in Wanderlust Hiking on Legendary Trails book. A few years back I took at trip to Norway with my old uni pal and intrepid explorer Jolyon Braime to hike the pilgrim's trail from Oslo to Trondheim. The lazy bastard that I am I only did half the trip but still managed 200 miles over the course of 2 weeks. Out there we also picked up a brave young American by the name of Dave Briceland who somehow managed the whole trip without a tent (he's the dude with the poncho over his head, his only defense against the elements). 

Really nice to see the images printed to such a high standard, and next to so many other great hiking trails.  FullSizeRender (7)FullSizeRender (7) FullSizeRender (8)FullSizeRender (8) FullSizeRender (9)FullSizeRender (9) FullSizeRender (10)FullSizeRender (10) FullSizeRender (11)FullSizeRender (11) FullSizeRender (12)FullSizeRender (12)
