Kinder Scout and Bleaklow in the Derbyshire Peak District – Bivi walk 2016

It seems to now be an annual pilgrimage to make this trip but it is more a case of it being the easiest way for me to spend a night on a hill / mountain at over 2000′. 08:21 train from Blythe Bridge to Stoke and then up to Manchester for a train to Hadfield. Arriving at Hadfield I always find it to be a reminiscing point. I remember when it was the main Trans-Pennine freight route as well as […]

Getting a better understanding of the ProFoto B2 and B1 OCF system

I’ve been using the ProFoto B2 250 OCF system for a few months now and had the opportunity to get a better understanding of the system. In order for a photographer to be able to deliver the best quality they can they need to understand their equipment, what it can and can’t do. For quite a few years I have chosen between a set of 600 w/s battery pack 2 head light kit and speed lights for when I am […]
