Most of my photos are not straight out of camera - if I want to capture a moment I will use my iphone. If I want a robust file that I can edit I'll jump to one of my Panasonics. Until recently I thought I'd never do video as the files were not able to handle my adjustments (unless you're shooting cinema RAW on a kit that costs more than a Mercedes). However someone just lent me a GH5S which I've been shooting in vlog and the results were exciting enough that now I want a gimbal for…

Those that have worked with me know I've been shooting #panasonic cameras forever (well... since 2008). Their discrete form factor was necessary so I wouldn't stand out in the back streets of China and South America (although to be honest, nothing would stop me from standing out in China...). This was one of the first images I ever shot, an old temple crossing the river that runs through Guiyang city in the heart of Guizhou.

Your host, photographer and cellist Charles Brooks, founder of High Res Tours. For 20 years I traveled the world as a concert cellist, leading orchestras everywhere from China to Brazil. It offered a lot of photographic opportunities, but not as many as I'd have liked! I could have spent more time on the streets and less in the practice room. Now I'm working with photography full time, and planning trips to revisit those extraordinary places I played, this time with proper photographic…

Sao Paulo city, seen from the window of my old apartment in the #copan building. This sprawling sea of skyscrapers in a complex place. I'm hoping to get back there in late 2019 for a bit of photography. Any musicians want portraits?

Having a young pretty model is nice, but last weekend they were all completely outclassed by 76yo Ron "The Wasp"!  Shot on a @lumix GH5 with the 12mm Summilux

New Zealand cave lit just by glow worms. It's extremely hard to capture the natural light of these guys. You have to leave the camera open for a long time and hope no one comes by swinging a torch. Since it's a popular tourist spot that usually means waiting until around midnight when everyone has gone home! This was an 8 minute exposure at ISO 1600, f-1.6.  ​

I've been busy trying out new light painting tools on St. Heliers beach with the beautiful Aleisha Wallabh-Smith - can't wait to bring you all some more of these. Big thanks must go out to Eric Paré, the guru of all things lightpainting, for his ongoing support and assistance!
