A New Year & A New Look

Just Before Christmas I had the fortune of photographing the newly renovated Stieralm on the Penken Mountain, Mayrhofen. The restaurant is under new management and is a vast improvement on what was there previously. The original structure is still the same but with a lot of time, effort and passion Max, and his father, Walter have breathed a new life into an old landmark. if your in Mayrhofen this winter I recommend dropping by for a bite to eat and a schnapps or 2!

Monochrome Oktober Day 29

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image

I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.

In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.

You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.

Penkenbahn Mayrhofen

I was recently commissioned to shoot the new Penkenbahn main station for a client. It is a great looking building and I can honestly say that I have to date not seen a queue of more than 5 minutes up or down (even in high season ona Sunday!) So form and functionality work.
