ABOUT
Joe Davies I am a seascape, landscape and nature photographer based in the Solent area of southern England.
A photographer for over 30 years, in the past I have been a wedding photographer and illustrated magazines and a book with my work. I now photograph the exquisite vistas of southern England, and teach the techniques of long exposure seascape and landscape photography.

I am especially fond of long exposure photography. Significantly increasing the length of the exposure calms a choppy sea giving it a silky smooth appearance, and clouds become streaked and softened, resulting in a tranquil and serene image.

GEAR
I use mirrorless cameras, currently a full frame Sony A7R and a Sony RX10, for their small size and light weight. I find electronic viewfinders so much more convenient and easier to use.
The Formatt-Hitech Firecrest range are my choice of filters. Their ND filters are true to their ratings and without the colour cast so prevalent in other makes. I prefer screw-in ND filters to prevent light leaks and coupled with a magnetic fitting system by Xume, they can be attached or removed instantly.




Thank you for your interest.
