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.

Rich Photographer Poor Photographer https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2018/2/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

Trail books https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2018/1/trail-books 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

Dignitas Malawi https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/7/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.

Royal Shakespeare Company - Julius Ceasar https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/7/royal-shakespeare-company---julius-ceasar 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.

Hiking to Legendary Trails Wanderlust https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/7/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)

Unicycle Hockey - Alternative Sports https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/3/unicycle-hockey---alternative-sports 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.

Time Out Tower of London game and The Bletchley Bar https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2017/3/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

Rollerderby https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2016/9/rollerderby The other day I went to shoot the London Rollergirls rollerderby team practice as part of my series on extreme and alternative sports. Brutal game, and very physical. I had to move very quickly to avoid being taken out. Great fun seeing them train.

Royal Courts of Justice - Empty London https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2016/7/royal-courts-of-justice---empty-london I've recently invested in a new rather complex ND filter system for my empty london project. A large circular filter made by Fotodiox combined with a square ND filter from Hitech, combined using the Fotodiox Wonderpana system. The quality is certainly a lot better than what I had previously, and it means I can mount everything on my 14-24mm F/2.8 Nikon lens. Here's a 3 hour long exposure outside the Royal Courts of Justice and a pic below of my setup.  Royal Courts of Justice empty best-1Royal Courts of Justice empty best-1

Netrugby https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2016/7/netrugby Another addition to my series on alternative sports in London - Netrugby.  The game has been around since the Boer War at the beginning of last century. Although it's name suggest a cross between netball and rugby it seems to have a lot in common with American football. Players can pass the ball forward as well as back, tackle each other from any direction and score by throwing the ball into a large net suspended on either end of the pitch. It is definitely one of the most exhausting sports I've photographed so far, with each half lasting 30 minutes and hardly any let ups in intensity.

Crystal Maze - Time Out https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2016/3/crystal-maze The Crystal Maze comes to London as a live action experience. To be honest I was sceptical at first about how good this could be but as soon as the game began I was hooked.

The games are generally fun and well designed. You get all the zones they had in the original: Aztec, Future, Medieval and Industrial. You also get to wear some very stylish bomber jackets.

Here are some pics from the crystal dome section at the end (unfortunately the only part I was allowed to photograph). The Time Out guide has some useful advice for anyone collecting those gold tokens. The online article with more pics is here. Trust me when I say it's a damn sight harder than it looks on the tele.

Horseball https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2015/10/horseball Entry number 6 in my unusual and extreme sports series is Horseball.

From what I've seen so far I can say that this sport is intense. It's been called a mix of polo, rugby and basketball but that cannot really do it justice. Players gallop around on horseback flinging a ball to each other while trying to throw it into giant hoops placed either end of the arena.

The ball is essentially a football wrapped in a harness and the first difficulty seems to be picking it off the ground while remaining on the horse. Once you've managed that you can only hold onto the ball for 10 seconds and the ball has to be passed a certain amount of times between teammates before an attempt at goal can be made. All the while the opposition are within rights to barge into you and rip it off you. It's basically a contact sport on horseback and spectacular to watch.

Halloween and Selfridges Time Out features https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2015/10/halloweenselfridges A couple of new features I worked on with Time Out magazine recently for the Style and Kids sections.

Shooting inside the Selfridges window displays was definitely most squeezed I've ever felt on a photo assignment (and I've been to some pretty narrow places). Fortunately packed my 16mm f/2.8 fisheye lens for this one otherwise would have been virtually impossible to get anything decent.

BTS Banger Racing & Underwater rugby - a few things I've learned https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2015/8/bts-banger-racing-underwater-rugby---a-few-things-ive-learned Here are a couple of BTS pics of my shoot with Jimmy Morris, banger racing champ, at Wimbledon Stadium a few months back and more recently the underwater rugby team at Putney Leisure Centre. I've learned a lot of new techniques since starting this project on extreme sports. Here are a few things I've picked up:

1. Cable ties are incredibly useful in almost any situation, even more so then duct tape in my experience. Just so tough and easy to work with. Always carry them on shoots!


2. Scuba diving gear is an absolute necessity when shooting underwater and I'm indebted to the underwater rugby team for letting me use theirs. I've tried with and without and there's just no point in even trying if you can't relax underwater. It's not just the having to hold your breathe but also the fact that without the tank, and with arms full of equipment, you're just way too buoyant to dive down. Just embrace looking like a dork!



3. Underwater camera housing doesn't come cheap as you can imagine. Most models on the market are expensive and often dedicated to one particular camera model. I was pleased to find an alternative option on ebay by a German company called Ewa Marine, who offer flexible but firm plastic housing rigs, tough enough for pool shoots and allowing for various different camera types.I must say I was very nervous taking my D3s to the pool the first time, but after a few tries I was soon flinging it about underwater without much of a worry and I trust it now to do the job.


4. Firing off camera flash underwater is one of the most difficult techniques out there. Radio waves and infrared just don't travel any distance at all underwater to be picked up by your remote strobes, so you can forget about using pocket wizards. After some research I decided the most affordable way to manage this was by using a system of optical cables. I took my inspiration from this guy

View on YouTube

So far his set up is the best DIY solution I've found to the problem of firing flash underwater. It's still a real challenge to move all this kit into position underwater. Without weights your light stands and cables risk floating around underwater and potentially very hazardous.

Also there appears to be very few glues out there that are strong enough to work with underwater. I used shoo glue to attach the optical cable connector to the peli case and it lasts only about one session before coming unstuck. The cable has to be directly opposite the speedlight sensor or the flash won't fire so this is crucial.


Despite the challenges shooting underwater is much fun. Especially a sport like underwater rugby which is so action packed and downright bizarre at the same time.

Bring your own ingredients - Cafe Royal https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2015/7/bring-your-own-ingredients---cafe-royal A simple premise behind this food feature for Time Out magazine - bring your own ingredients (whatever they may be) to the head chef at Cafe Royal and he will cook you something special incorporating them. Alexi Duggins laid down the gauntlet, bringing some Sainsburys value ham, cadburys cream eggs, value chicken, and a large pack of wotsits. The best was clearly the cream egg sorbet.  Bring your own ingredients at the Cafe Royal, London on the 01/01/2014.

St Pauls Cathedral https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2015/4/st-pauls-cathedral Here is a shot of St Paul's - part of an ongoing project to photograph London landmarks as empty spaces. For this one I set up the camera for a two-hour exposure.

While there are plenty of excellent examples of long-exposure photography out there, this sort of technique tends to be used at night. The trails of traffic and bright neon lights make the city appear vibrant and colourful. My idea behind this project was to use the same technique but in bright midday sun to produce an opposite effect. The city space looks dead, void of any human activity and familiar landmarks appear eery in situ.

This effect is accentuated by the fact that a long exposure like this, shot in the midday sun, makes a digital image look like it was shot on film. Using an infrared filter on top of neutral density filters I can cut out at lot of nuisance IR light spilling onto the sensor, at the expense of muting the colours.

He teaches regular classes to his pupils at Jacksons Lane Arts centre.

Dovrefjell pilgrims trail https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2014/7/Dovrefjell-pilgrims-trail Part 2 of my update from the Pilgrim’s trail in Norway. Here are some pics from our climb across Dovrefjell. Camping in Norway is a breeze and once you get used to the trail you don’t want to leave. Swimming in the Fjords is certainly a highlight. It’s been freakishly hot in Norway the last couple of weeks and we were genuinely surprised to see some snow still clinging to the mountain side steam rising from it. Great churches along the way too, including Dovre church encased in slate. Bring on Trondheim I say.

The Pilgrim’s Trail https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2014/7/The-Pilgrim-s-Trail I’m currently walking the Pilgrim’s trail between Oslo and the town of Tronheim, a 600km stretch across the beautiful Norwegian countryside. Joined by my good friend Mr Jolyon Braime and an another Dave, an American chap from Michigan. The days are long and the trail can be brutal, especially when you’re slogging up hills carrying a 20 kilo backpack. But there’s nothing quite like pitching up your tent in the middle of the pine forest, cooking dinner on the stove then crawling into your sleeping bag for some well deserved kip. Nothing else seems to matter much when you’re out in the wildnerness.

Brunel Tunnel – Time Out https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2014/6/Brunel-Tunnel-Time-Out I ventured down Brunel Tunnel the other week, as it was open to the public for the first time in years. Hailed as the 8th Wonder of the world, in Victorian times the tunnel (between Rotherhide and Wapping) allowed pedestrians to cross underneath the Thames.

In those days the tunnel would be lined with souvenir stalls. Those eager to boast of their experience would snap up as many as possible as this demonstrated how long they were able to stay underground. Brilliant!

Astrophotography https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2014/5/Astrophotography Recently I’ve started experimenting shooting some astrophotography.

Using my telescope effectively as a massive telephoto lens (with a t-adapter and barlow) I’ve fitted my camera up to take shots of the full moon.

I also invested in a solar filter which cuts out 99.99% of light, enabling me to get a shot of the sun in broad daylight.

It’s amazing seeing the sun spots on the sun, beautiful to observe.

Quidditch – Time Out https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2014/4/Quidditch-Time-Out A month ago I went to photograph the London Quidditch team competing in a tournament in Reading. Yes, that’s right, Quidditch from Harry Potter. It’s an actual game played by real people holding broomsticks between their legs, hurling balls at each other while trying to get one through a hoop. I was surprised to find it very entertaining, especially the snitch character (I never read J.K, Rowling’s books) who had me in stitches.

Here are a few shots from the day. Alexi Duggin’s article can be found on the Time Out site here

London Cat Cafe – Time Out https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2014/1/London-Cat-Cafe-Time-Out As a cat lover last week’s assignment for Time Out magazine was one of my most enjoyable to date. Dinah’s Cat Emporium on Bethnal Green Road is opening to the public in a few weeks and will be the first of its kind in the UK. Here you can sip tea and enjoy scones in the company of a family of friendly kitties. There are cat toys aplenty, my particular favourite being the cat (hamster) wheel.

The shoot became a technical challenge when I found out I couldn’t use flash. Naturally that sort of thing freaks the hell out of cats. Thankfully Ben Rowe at Time Out was on hand to help out with some mobile phone lighting. Enjoy!

Colour Film Development https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2014/1/Colour-Film-Development A while ago I blogged about doing black and white film development at home using a dark bag.  You can find that post here. I always imagined colour development to be way too tricky to attempt at home. Yet the truth is it was easier than I thought.

There are plenty of guides online on how to do this (a good one here) so rather than simply regurgitate all this advice I created a timelapse video to demonstrate the process.

Step 1: Mixing chemicals. I used the Tetenal 1l c-41 processing kit which is good for well over a dozen developments and only about 25 quid online. Easy.

Step 2: Achieving the right temperature. Maintaining this is key. Colour development must be done around 38-39 degrees C. You can see it gets rather steamy at one stage! A drop of one centigrade is apparently disastrous! I adopted the same approach as in the guide above using two washing up bowls, one as a heating bath for the chemicals and one as a holding bath for the tank. With bath tub and shower head, a couple of bowls, and a couple of decent digital thermometers it’s dead easy to keep the temperature consistent.

Step 3: The development. Once the chemicals have been heated the development can commence! Stopwatch is absolutely essential at this stage obviously. A very useful app I discovered for the timings – LabTimer.
The developer goes in first, then the bleach fix (nasty stuff you generally want to avoid much contact with), then a 3 min rinse before the stabliser at the end.

Step 4: After a quick wash the negative is ready for drying!

Here are some of the results. These were shot on Kodak Portra colour film, on my Mamiya AFD II 645 medium format and Voigtlander Bessa R2 35mm rangefinder.

Inspiring Women: Professors of Psychiatry Portrait Exhibition https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2013/3/Inspiring-Women-Professors-of-Psychiatry-Portrait-Exhibition Yesterday was the launch of my portrait exhibition of thirty women professors of psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry in Denmark Hill, South London. The exhibition will run for 6 months to 1 year.

The project was a real challenge. Not least because the majority of the participants hated having their picture taken! This forced me to work really hard in what was only a half-hour session with each person. Suffice to say I couldn’t rely on cheeky one-liners. It was also a mission finding different locations we could use around the campus. It’s amazing how fit you get lugging camera gear and lighting stands up and down stairs.

I chose to do the whole exhibition in black and white. I’m really glad I made this decision early on, as I’ve learned a lot about colour and monochrome shooting, and what lighting, composition, backgrounds suit both formats.

Here are the results of an intense 2 week shoot, and below a few images from the Inspiring Women launch event.

In Bruges https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2013/2/In-Bruges Bruges…it’s a bit like toy town. So many lovely sights to see, a medieval dreamland.

I shot these pictures with my new Sony Nex-6. I’m amazed by how smart these bridge cameras are getting. Really excellent quality too. It sure beats lugging my D3 around town. Sure there are still things it cannot do that a pro body can. The autofocus, high ISO shooting, and lens quality still fall a little short of the high end of the DSLR specturm, but you’ll find the Nex-6 is a really great compromise. The HD movies are super sharp too. Plus the addition of built-in WIFI is handy, allowing you to upload pics immediately from the camera or via your smartphone.

Highly recommended!

Time Out – November shoots https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2012/11/Time-Out-November-shoots A selection of pics from a few shoots I did with Alexi Duggins for his Time Out Column. In this first one we visited a Victorian themed pub under an archway in London Bridge, where Alexi had a duel to death (well not quite) with a glass pistol full of some dubious Victorian style cocktail. http://tinyurl.com/d6ff4tr

In the 2nd shoot we embarked up a tour of the London Science Museum dressed as giant cockroaches. Why? I don’t know why exactly, although Duggins’ piece on it is in the magazine this week. Some sort of educational thing I imagine.

Finally a spot of life drawing at London Museum. This was an interesting one, trying to get the best shot possible in an environment where just holding a camera felt wrong and weird. For a funny read go here http://tinyurl.com/cmqnkeo

Waterloo Tunnel shoot https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2012/11/Waterloo-Tunnel-shoot After almost a year living on Lower Marsh I decided it was about time to do a shoot in Waterloo Tunnels. For a long time now graffiti artists from all over London have been given the free reign over the tunnel. Here are a selection of pics I shot with actor and model Sandra Darnell.

Duck to Water – Time Out https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2012/8/Duck-to-Water-Time-Out Paddle boarding with @AlexiDuggins for #timeout magazine.

It looks a lot of fun. I emphasise the word ‘look’ as unfortunately I didn’t get to try it out myself but was restricted to chasing down the boarders in a canoe instead. Everything went swimmingly for a time until two huge barges came hurtling towards us down stream, racing each other side by side. The wash came over the side and took out my flash temporarily (luckily it dried out). As I looked back I saw Duggins on all fours clinging on for dear life like a shipwrecked sailor praying for the end of the storm. Never did fall in though…despite my best efforts.

It’s not ideal of course…would love to set up my own darkroom when I have the space…but I’ve never had a problem using the darkbag. I took this roll from my rangefinder. I knew the photos were slightly underexposed so I decided to push the development a little and experiment, and as a result got some quite nice contrast across the tones. It takes time of course but it’s also fun and exciting. I’ve also included a couple of scans here.

Softbox https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2012/2/Softbox Sorry not a lot of blogging at the moment as I’ve been pulling some projects together.

I recently purchased the Lastolite Octa Softbox, the largest softbox I own at 90x90cm across. I’ve been looking for a truly portable large softbox for a while now and it fits the bill perfectly. Takes roughly 10mins to set up mind so you have to factor that into the shoot. It produces lovely diffused light, and is nicely balanced. You can also shoot speedlights through it with a hotshoe attachment. Travelling around London on public transport with all your gear means you need these sort of portable lighting solutions.

Llanganatis https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2011/8/Llanganatis After eight long days trekking in the Llangantis National Park in Ecuador I have arrived in the nearby town of Pillaro. It was an incredible journey, taking in valleys, vistas, and cloud forest along the way. With no paths to follow, we had to make our way along mainly deer tracks, some areas being totally inaccessible. The first couple of days good weather didn´t hold up, and soon we were faced with freezing fog and swirling mist.

Here are a few shots I´ve managed to upload for now. I have also included here a picture of the Flechas, very sharp arrow like plants sticking up like knives from the ground.

Next on the agenda is the Sangay volcano.

Arrival in Quito https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2011/8/Arrival-in-Quito After 16 hours flying we finally arrived in Quito yesterday in thick fiog. Tomorrow morning we will be setting off my Pillaro where the expedition to the Llanganatis will commence. The bags are packed!

Waterproofing all the gear is of paramount importance on this trip. It rained for a few hours today in Quito and it rained hard. I can´t say for sure what to expect in the mountains but it´s sure to be the toughest physical challenge I have faced so far.

Here are few shots from Quito today. I´ll keep updating when I can.

Ecuador https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2011/8/Ecuador Next week I’ll travel to Ecuador and the Llanganates National Park as part of the Search for Gold 2011 Expedition team led by Ken Hames and Jacki Hill Murphy. www.searchforgold2011.com. Below is an image of the region we’re heading to and my recent blog post on the website.

So this is it. The Search for Gold 2011 Expedition is about to begin. I’m on a train gliding through rural Oxfordshire on my way back to London Town, gazing out the window and reflecting on what kind of adventure lies ahead. Just a few days left to go before I board the flight to Ecuador and join up with the rest of the team.

I’ve just picked up my share of expedition food from Mr Tinker for the trip: 24 hour survival rations, comprising of tightly packed freeze dried food. Right now I am resisting the temptation to break out the chocolate pudding. Powdered muesli… mmm tasty! I keep reminding myself at least it’s endorsed by Ranulph Fiennes. I bought a George Foreman grill once. I trusted that guy…surely Sir Ranulph wouldn’t let me down?

I’m buzzing with excitement, anticipation, and a mild amount trepidation to be fair. I know that Jacki Hill Murphy and Ken Hames have poured a lot into this trip, literally years of planning and preparation. We have amassed a wealth of information about the Llanganates, the legend of buried Inca gold, and the various treasure seekers that have tried and failed to locate it. And yet despite all this, nobody really knows exactly what to expect. And that’s part of the fun! That’s what these trips are all about. At present I’ve only met half our team but we might well call ourselves an eclectic bunch of thrill seekers, from various backgrounds, of various ages, each of us bringing something to the table.

My role on the trip is that of the official photographer. A trek of this magnitude and difficulty presents me with a conundrum over what kit to take out. We face treacherous conditions: high altitude boggy terrain, razor sharp vegetation, and freezing rain accounting for an annual precipitation of up to twice that of the Lake District. I’ve decided to take my Nikon D3s, with three lenses: two primes 20mm F/2.8 and 50mm F/1.4 and a telephoto zoom Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 APO Macro. These I will carry in a Lowepro Inverse 200AW beltpack (with all weather cover!) on me at all times. It’s not ideal but the best compromise I could find. I’m interested to see how my D3s handles the weather although I will be taking some extra waterproofing in case it gets hairy.

I hope to document the trip and the team effort while working on my own photo stories along the way. I’ve heard a lot about the biodiversity, and I’m looking forward to doing some Macro photography, training my long lens on the various fauna, flora, and fungi we encounter along the way. Luckily we have two Belgian wildlife experts on board. I’m relying on them to advise us on the how cuddly these creatures are.

Part two of our expedition involves climbing the Sangay, one of the most active volcanoes in South America. That’s about all I know about it at the moment, but it does look pretty damn impressive on Google Earth. I’ll be blogging more about this as we go along.

More to come!

Big Chill Festival 2011 https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2011/8/Big-Chill-Festival-2011 I got sent to cover the Big Chill Festival last weekend for Blues and Soul magazine. Some of the artists I shot in no particular order… The Bullits with Lucy Liu, Norman Jay, Katy B, Gay Fish, Jessie J, Janelle Monae, Gay Fish, Jessie J, Femi Kuti, Dionne Bromfield (she was brilliant btw), Craig Charles Funk Show and Aloe Blacc (whom I also highly recommend). Blues and Soul has been going since the 60s and is now back in print after a four year absence.

Love working for these guys. I recently found out they also have a great picture archive of bands and artists shot over the years, which you can check out on their web page www.bsimagearchive.com. The collection they have is unique…and there are some cool shots there…including Bob Marley enjoying a kick about.

Search for Gold Expedition 2011 https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2011/3/Search-for-Gold-Expedition-2011 On the 23rd August this year I’ll be heading to Ecuador as part of the Search for Gold Expedition team. This is the first British led expedition to explore the historical and geographical aspects of the hidden Inca Gold. It will be led by Major Ken Hames, former SAS officer and TV personality and Jacki Hill-Murphy. We will look into the unexplored region of the Llanganates National Park in Ecuador, following the Inca Gold Trail.

This is a shot of Ken on our training weekend in Snowdonia last weekend. The team will hopefully be around 14 strong, each person taking on a different role. There is a strong possibility the journey will be filmed by the National Geographic Channel, so wait and see!

Middle Eastern Cooking Pilot https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2010/1/Middle-Eastern-Cooking-Pilot These production stills were taken on the set of Middle Eastern Flavours – a new cooking programme hosted by Mireille Masri. The recipes are from…yep you guessed it…the Middle East and I might add the food looked fantastic.

This was also the first time I got to try out my new Jacobsen sound blimp with my Nikon D700 and it worked great. I was really pleased, especially because the shutter on the camera isn’t the most discrete. There was hardly a sound to be heard even in a small kitchen with half a dozen crew members jostling for space.

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again I am constantly amazed by the low light capabilities of the D700. So much detail at 3200 and even 6400 ISO. Even when the noise does begin to creep in it has a nice ‘filmic’ quality to it, no horrible smudging.

Not flash allowed inside the gallery so I had to rely on my fast primes, and work at 1600 ISO. No problem for the my d700 of course!

Business Awards Hammersmith https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2009/9/Business-Awards-Hammersmith

Client: Hammersmith and Fulham
Subject: 2009 Business Awards Film
Info: D700 with 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens at 200mm, shutter speed 1/8s aperture f/2.8 ISO 1600.

As well as the usual award photos I took this picture of a nominee watching a promo film , using only the light available from a cinema screen. Very steady hands required! The Vibration reduction on the lens obviously helped. I love pushing my camera gear to the limit and seeing what can be acheived. Close up the lack of noise in this image is remarkable.

Back from Siberia https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2009/6/Back-from-Siberia I’ve been back from Siberia for a week now, but it feels much longer than that. A brilliant trip. Climbed some unclimbed peaks, encountered some risky ridges, all in all a great time. Didn’t have a lot of time to explore Kuray but what I did see was pretty fascinating. We stayed at the guesthouse of the local mafia boss in town, although he wasn’t much of a godfather, spending most of his time repairing old broken down trucks and various Soviet vehicles. I took so many images I’ll have to put some more up at a later date.

Thailand https://www.davidtett.com/blog/2008/12/Thailand Below are some pictures I took while travelling around Thailand earlier this month. Bangkok is a photographer’s dream. There’s so much happening around you all the time. I really felt I could get close to the subject, and with none of the hassle or awkardness I might sometimes experience as a street photographer. People generally seemed more open and friendly. Unfortunately the light wasn’t all that great by day, too harsh and bright, but anyway I think I preferred shooting under the street lamps and neon light.

Here is a selection… more to follow soon!
