Colin Prior at the Travellers' Tales Festival

One of the world's best outdoor travel photographers, Colin Prior will now be speaking at the Travellers' Tales Festival this weekend. Renowned for his stunning panoramic travel images of some of the planet's wildest places, Colin is a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers.

He shot a series of British Airways calendars, during which he travelled more than one million miles and to 35 countries.

I've got a couple of his panoramics of Buchaille Etive in Scotland on my walls here in the house.

Catch his travel photography talk at 3.30pm on Sunday 1st March at the Royal Geographical Society.

Great photographers coming to town

It is now less than 2 weeks to the Travellers' Tales Festival, where legendary travel photographers Steve McCurry, Colin Prior, Art Wolfe and Jonathan Scott will all be speaking.

As well as the main lectures there are a raft of travel photography workshops and discussion panels, including ones with Steve Bloom, Stuart Franklin and Chris Steele Perkins.

This is a very rare chance to see any one of these speakers here in the UK and to see them all in one weekend is unique. Don't miss it!

Tickets are available from the Travellers' Tales Festival website.

As well as the big name travel photographers, there are many famous travel writers too, including Willaim Dalrymple, John Simpson, Colin Thubron and Alexander McCall Smith.

It's on Saturday 28th February and Sunday 1st March at the sumptuous Royal Geographical Society HQ in London.

See you there!

New website imminent

I'm in the final stages of designing a new website to showcase my work as a travel photographer. It will run under the new address of and offer a much better platform for displaying my images.

Vivid Planet ( will of course continue and will be more focused on the commercial side of the business, including the sale of my travel stock photography, travel photography workshop and lecture events and the various books I have worked on.

With a little luck it should go live later this week.
