Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Over the last 10 years of landscape photography I have been lucky enough to visit some of the most iconic photography locations in the world. In this new series of short videos I look back at some standout locations and provide my insights, experiences and photos. The first video in this series focuses on Deadvlei in the Namib desert of Namibia which has become one of the most famous landscape photography locations in the world. If you’re planning to visit Deadvlei, I hope these tips are useful, if you’re not visiting, I hope it’s interesting enough to keep you watching 🙂

Let me know what you think of the format – does it work? Does the lack of video footage from the location make it less interesting? Interested to hear peoples thoughts.

Very useful. Namibia is on my immediate bucket list.

Steve M says:

Looks like an amazing place James. I too recently went to Iceland and didn’t document it in video – regrettably. But you did a great job with the photos you captured.

Chris and Sohee says:

Excellent Video, Keep up the good work!

Cheryl Hanna-Truscott says:

Very well done. I learned something about landscape photography (I'm basically a portraitist) even if I never get to Namibia.

Tim Kirk says:

Amazing photos man! Thanks for sharing.

David McCormack says:

James, I enjoyed this. I think it works because you edited it so well. The images you provided were perfect examples and the movement you added to the images was tasteful. Well done! Best, Dave

That was a great vlog and a great idea to retrospectively talk about a place you have photographed. I have so many places I wished I had vlogged. As I get older and the grey matter is getting weak the vlogs are a real blessing for me to recap my journey. Look forward to your next one.

Stephen Starkman says:

Great video and concept James! I've visited Deadvlei once and I think your tips nailed it.
