I shot this on my first night out the back of the guest house I was staying in in Zomba, Malawi. Nothing compared to these amazing astronomy photography of the year pics of course. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-40789348 I'll get there one day hopefully, I love this kind of photography.

http://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/7/dignitas-malawi Dignitas Malawi

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.

http://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/7/hiking-to-legendary-trails-wanderlust Hiking to Legendary Trails Wanderlust

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)

For my alternative sports series here is a shot I took of the London Unicycle Hockey Team. A truly weird and wonderful sport this is. Perhaps the only game where getting on the playing field in the first place is a challenge. I've been along a couple of times now and the players seem very dedicated to the sport (I guess you have to be!). I'm looking forward to seeing them in action again soon.

http://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/3/time-out-tower-of-london-game-and-the-bletchley-bar Time Out Tower of London game and The Bletchley Bar

This was a tricky one. Trying to get a decent picture of a Time Out crew skulking along the ramparts of the Tower of London past a couple of guards, all while lying in a puddle in the pissing rain, trying to get the Tower and everything else in shot with nothing wider than a 24mm lens and no space to manoeuvre. Welcome to Difference Engine's Tower of London immersive game experience. The aim of the game is to break into the Tower and open the gates from the inside, allowing the masses to flood in and kickstart a revolution. I had an image of the Scooby Doo crew in my mind the whole time while trying to shoot this... isn't it obvious?

 

The second shoot was at the Bletchley Bar on Kings Road where you have to crack codes using enigma type machines and drinks are made according to your favourite smells. Certainly not your average cocktail bar experience.  Tower of London game-36Tower of London game-36 Tower of London game-28Tower of London game-28
