A Year on the Road


…Two weeks into 2010 and I am back from my one month break over the holiday season.  As is the tradition for photographers around this time of year, I have put together a small portfolio of previously unseen pictures from 2009… one from each Human Planet shoot last year.

Yesterday I left my home town of Bristol deep in snow.  Today,  I am filing this post from a hot and humid Changi airport in Singapore on a stop over with the mountains team on our way to the highlands of North Eastern Papua New Guinea where we will be shooting for the next 2 weeks.  Right now, I am also pleased to say that we have British photojournalist Kieran Doherty shooting a high rise story for us in UAE’s capital Dubai with the urban team and he’ll be posting a blog in due course.

Happy New Year to you where ever you are in the world and I hope you enjoy this selection of pictures from a year of travel in 2009.

    Wow, that was quite the year. It is amazing to look back on an entire year and see all the places you can actually go in such a seemingly short amount of time.
