May 2020 bring Health and good fortune to you all.  

Returning for a third time in 15 months, my next African exploit will be in the vast tranquility of Namibia. This sparsely populated country is home to the World's oldest desert, the largest sand dunes, the second largest canyon and the semi-nomadic, ochre covered Himba tribe. 

Namibia is guaranteed to be a photographic paradise with the stunning landscapes of Sossusvlei, Deadvlei, Skeleton coast, Etosha National Park to name but a few.

Can't wait to go back to Africa! 

Wishing you Happy photographic travels, wherever you may be headed...

Born Free Foundation I have recently contacted the Born Free Foundation who do fantastic work in re-wilding wild animals back to their natural habitat. They also intervene in circuses and zoos and prevent wild animals from being exploited for monetary gains. In addition, they relocate wild animals that have been subject to animal trafficking.

Their moto is #keepwildlifeinthewild. 

As I feel very strong about animal abuse, I offered to fundraise for them by donating a percentage of any sales of my wildlife exhibition to their foundation.

This was agreed and I am using their logo to advise potential buyers that this has been approved by the Foundation. 

So if you feel you want to both own a limited edition print of this series and contribute at the same time to the well-being of these animals, feel free to contact me. 

I have several exhibtions planned for this series in the coming year and I will be returning to Botswana and the Okavango Delta to further enhance this collection.

W for WILDlife! After an 18 month break for personal health reasons, I managed to secure a place at short notice on an African Wildlife Safari Photo Tour with 2 reknowned photographers: David Lloyd, UK Wildlife Photographer of the Year ( and Richard Peters, European Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nikon Ambassador (

Well, wow! what an experience! I was completely 'blown away' with the whole trip. It is something that has always intrigued me after watching 'Born Free' back in the 70's. To have had the privilege to be able to share this environment with true predators and the incredible people of the Maasai Mara was a real life-changing experience.


What did I learn?... in a word: RESPECT. 

Respect for the incredible eco-system of the Mara and the whole environment that forms this amazing 'circle of life' is a real eye-opener. It is survival of the fittest, there are no second chances for strugglers. It is life at its most basic and yet most rewarding. 

To be able to witness the unpredictable sights, sounds and smells of untamed nature is a real plus. Something you can never experience from watching edited documentaries on TV.

 So am I going back? bet! No 2 days are alike and nothing is planned. This is real life. This is WILDLIFE!

Complicity. The eyes say it all! (c'est tout dans le regard)

Colours of Provence A short drive south from my home brings you to the magical light and colours of Provence. I took a trip down there this week just before the harvesting of the Lavander. A fabulous circuit from Grignan to Montelimar full of surprises and colourful undulating landscapes. Together with Dancer/model Nais and fellow photographer Didier (who acted as lighting assistant on this occasion) we found some delightful 'champs de lavande'.

All the non-French resident photographers who organise 'Group' trips only visit Valensole but they have missed this area! Every photo tourist has been to valensole to take the same photos and now you have to fight to get a position and you end up with the same as everyone else! 

This place is still an undiscovered gem and you wont be fighting for a position! It's true, there is no stone cabanon in the middle of the field, but with a little imagination and a few accesories you can create something different from the 'classic' landscape. 

So why not give it a try.  If you want more details of this area, contact me by the contact form... you wont regret it!

Stay creative and dont follow the herd!

Until next time....

Press interview - Le Progrès - 5th Dec 2016 Many thanks to Stéphane Domur, journalist of Le Progrès for this article on my exhibition at Les Dézingués.

Mille merci à Stéphane Domur, Journaliste à "Le Progrès" pour cette interview et article sur mon expo aux Dézingués.

Les photographes roannais investissent le centre-ville

Le restaurant Les dézingués accueille jusqu’au 13 janvier une expo photos intitulée « Camargue sauvage ».

Rob Heath devant sa série « Camargue sauvage ». Photo Stéphane DOMUR

Le blanc de la craie dessinant sur un tableau noir le menu du jour proposé par le chef a laissé place au noir et blanc d’une suite de photographies qui sentent bon la Camargue.

Un photographe passionné, Guy Plotton, explique : « Nous faisons déjà tous partie d’un club photo dans le Roannais. Nous avons décidé de nous fédérer de façon tout à fait informelle, sans monter d’association, juste pour le plaisir de nous voir et surtout d’exposer tour à tour le travail de chacun dans un endroit dédié. »

Éric Paratcha, bien connu des Roannais, confie : « C’est la 2e édition de notre expo. Et il y en aura d’autres ! »

Après la série « Rugby » de la 1re édition avec Dominique Thoral en novembre, c’est au tour de Rob Heath, anglais de naissance, roannais d’adoption depuis 2002 et membre du club mablyrot Phot’Objectif Mably. Il s’est lancé pour de bon dans la photographie il y a 10 ans. À l’époque, il faisait beaucoup de peinture contemporaine orientée portraits et exposait un peu partout, de New York à Londres, Budapest…

Chevaux, écume, taureaux…

La photo - préalable au départ de chaque œuvre - a pris peu à peu le dessus sur la peinture. Ses thèmes de prédilection : les portraits créatifs et les danseuses. Mais cette fois, c’est sa série « Camargue sauvage » qui est à l’honneur. Chevaux, écume, taureaux…, tout est là ! D’ailleurs, cette série lui a valu d’autres honneurs, et pas des moindres : Rob Heath a été primé à l’International Photography Awards 2016. Cette récompense lui a d’ailleurs permis d’exposer ses clichés dans une galerie londonienne.

Dance with movement. Recently I acquired a new Continuous 650 DayLED fresnel from Lupo as I wanted to experiment with continuous light in combination with studio strobes. The objective was to catch dance with movement using long-exposure techniques.

For this set-up I had the continuous light at 2 o'clock on full power and strobes at 8 o'clock on almost minimal power far max speed and to freeze the action. The camera was set to 'Rear curtain' sync and I was using shutter speeds of approx. 1 second with Mirror Lock-up. The Camera, my  Nikon D810 was on a tripod, in Manual mode and I had a trigger release to avoid as much movement as possible. For this shoot I had pre-focused on the dancer at the position where she should land. I then kept the focus in manual mode throughout.

Much of the success of this shoot is in the timing as the dancer has to finish her two steps and jump in about 1 second.

I used 2 flags to shield the LED from the background as well as from the camera. I also flagged the strobes from the backgorund and the camera, too.

So with minimal ambient light, the continuous light just picks up the movement and 1 second later the strobe fires to freeze the motion.

CAMARGUE- South of France One thing i've been wanting to do for a few years is to have a photoshoot in Camargue. Wild White horses, Black stampeding bulls, Pink Flamingos and the weathered portraits of the 'Guardians' of the Camargue.

5 days of superb wildlife shooting should be an experience never to forget. April 7th-11th 2016. With Serge Krouglikoff of Creataway and Simon Stafford of Nikon, London.

Should be a good test for the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6. As usual I 'll throw a few 'direct from camera' shots on facebook.. Watch this space!

Serie: Autour d'une fleuve / Riverbank series The River Thames (Tamise en français) is a fantastic place to discover. This series is based around long-exposure night photography and will form part of a new exhibition in late 2015. The technique is as per my previous post. This photo used an exposure of 25 seconds at f/8 and ISO 100. I used a Lee Filter GND 0.6 (2 stops). A sturdy tripod is essential.

What's in my Bag / C'est quoi dans ton sac? "It's easy to take good pictures with all that equipment!" ===> FALSE

The old adage: It's the photographer that makes the pictures! Good equipment helps in certain situations, but most photos can be done on any DSLR. ===> TRUE!

Art is the willingness to create something special from basic ingredients. 

Think: Good ovens = a good chef? ===> NO!

Expensive cars = good drivers? ===> NO!

Designer Jewellery and clothes = Beauty? ===> No!


So what equipment do I use?

In the studio and for beauty/fashion shoots and also for Landscape work (where I will print large scale photos) I use the Nikon D800 (36MP). Many of my earlier photographs were taken with my previous Nikon D200.

For everyday use, the Fuji X-T1 is more than good enough. In fact, for Street photography it is a clear advantage to go small and shoot from the hip. 

It should also be stated that photography is very addictive and so whilst it's not compulsory to have the latest equipment, improvements in the technology field mean that older digital cameras (not lenses) can become rapidly out of date.

A fuller list of my equipment, if you are interested, can be found here: http:\\

Website changes For 2015 I have re-designed the website with a different format. 

It is now faster loading, more fluid, less cluttered and the photos are larger! 

You can now comment on any or all photos and leave your overall appreciations/opinions in my guestbook! Also added are social connectivity via facebook, twitter, google+1 and pinterest. 

In addition you can now create collections/favourites and contact me much more easier than before!

So it's a spring clean in Winter! and a breath of fresh air for me, at least :) 

Hope you enjoy the new layout!

Interview by

Strike A Pose Photo Contest Winner! Discover who won the Peoples Choice!


Rob Heath won the “Peoples Choice” at the Strike A Post Photo Contest. In our Interview thephotographer tells us about the contest and his passion about art. So read on to know more about Rob.


Chiara by Rob Heath

ModelManagement: Did you expect to be one of the winners of the Strike A Pose Photo Contest?

Rob Heath: I have been taking part in photo competitions for about 6 months now and one of the things I have noticed is the incredible amount of natural talent around. Just taking a technically correct photo however, is not sufficient to win anything. Art is subjective and progressive with smartphones and incredible advances in technology, anyone can try their hand at capturing an interesting shot; so to get noticed you need to strike a chord with a whole cross-section of different people. I find that you really need to differentiate yourself and try to break-out of fundamental concept limitations. So, I was surprised and indeed very happy to be elected as the people’ choice winner for this competition. Much of the credit must go to Chiara who was a fabulous model and effortlessly switched between poses for this session. In fact, I finished the session with a great series of shots that are being exhibited in France in 2014. So surprised, yes and extremely grateful for the award. It’s always good to receive feedback as long as it is constructive and getting the people’s award for this competition gave me a huge boost in confidence and confirms that, what I was trying to achieve, also sparked a positive response from others.  Since taking part in this competition, the same photograph has also been voted in the top 10 photos for Nikon France’s “Dance theme” competition.

Chiara Bend PDA

Chiara by Rob Heath

MM: When did you first become passionate about photography?

RH: I have been developing my ‘artistic eye’ for about 10 years now. I must admit that I was sorely tempted to buy a Ricoh film camera about 30 years ago but at the time, the funds just weren’t there and whilst I was interested in capturing some form of scenic interpretation, I didn’t immediately take the plunge with photography. Instead, I tried my hand at drawing and painting. Having work and travel commitments meant that I didn’t really have the time to commit seriously to my hobby and only after emigrating to France in 2002 did I find that I could use the time saved from my 5h daily commute for something more productive and satisfying. I took up painting as a serious hobby and in 2009 had my first solo exhibition in France. Since then I have exhibited in London, New York, Las Vegas, Budapest and Manchester and have been published in a few books. However, I still had a yearning to learn the techniques of photography and so I enrolled for various courses and learned the studio techniques necessary for a successful shoot. I now book studio time whenever I travel to my office in London. Once you have the basic techniques learned, it becomes completely addictive!

Chiara PDA

Chiara by Rob Heath

MM: What fascinates you the most about photography?

RH: The light, the light and the light. I know exactly the effect that I am trying to create in many of my shots before I take them and unless the balance between light and shade is just right, I’m really not very happy! Knowing how light can render a scene really profound with a certain depth compels me to persevere until I get it ‘nailed’.
I am also a bit of a gadget fan and I just love reading up on the latest advances in camera technology. However to counter-balance this I recently acquired a 45 year old Rolleiflex which is a real leveler and great fun to use. Photography is like many things in life, you can never say that you have mastered it completely as there are always new ways of seeing things. We can always learn from others and improve and in fact that’s what keeps the interest going; it’s not about being a famous photographer, it’s the journey of discovery that’s the fun part.

Chiara Repose PDA

Chiara by Rob Heath

MM: What advantages do you find on having a Premium Pro membership on and

RH: I have just joined this great community of artistic people and already I can tell that it could be a game changer for me. There are many sites on the web that are just galleries or forums without any real vision or meaning and they are not really going to lead to anything, but having all the creative parties under one banner really sets this site apart. I think having more models than photographers is, for me a real bonus and the fact that it is truly international and not just US based also means that I’ll get the chance to meet like-minded creative from around Europe. The premium Pro memberships will enable me to fully exploit this artistic community and really make it work for me without any limiting factors.

MM: You are also a painter. Do you prefer using a camera or a brush?

RH: Ha! Yes, the million dollar question!  I am both a painter and a photographer which for me is ideal! When I started painting portraits I used to use pictures found on the web to practice techniques and I was in awe of many of the great photographers who could capture stunning portraits. Having learnt the basics of photography and spent numerous sessions in photographic studios I can now really appreciate the time and effort it takes to make a great portrait. I would not consider myself to be solely a painter or a photographer as I fully intend to make use of some of my photographs in future painted artworks. You could say that I am just giving myself as much ammunition as possible to create my art. At the moment I am going through a photography phase and am enjoying it hugely. I can’t say if I will ever give up either of these two creative arts as they both fulfill a particular need and as long as that continues then I shall continue to do both.
One major difference between the two arts for me is that I approach painting in a far more relaxed manner and often without a pre-conceived idea as to what I want to achieve whereas with photography I always have the end view in mind before I start! I would say that painting is more evolutionary in nature whereas photography is dictatorial; it needs to be controlled and mastered.

MM: Any advice for those who want to become photographers?

RH: I am not a full time professional photographer as I earn my living in another sector of the media industry so I wouldn’t presume to know all of the pit-falls or aspects to avoid. I like to think that I create Art rather than take pictures and hence classify myself more as a part-time, enthusiastic amateur / semi-pro photographer.
However, I think anyone who wants to become a full-time photographer needs huge amounts of dedication and belief. They need to be flexible and open to new ideas but also need to carve out a specific style. In addition, ‘People photographers’ need to be excellent communicators and a little extravert. In my relatively short time as a photographer I would say that you need to create a bond and really understand the subject matter before you can fully exploit it. This applies to all genres of photography and is often the major difference between making photos and just taking photos.
As with all of the Arts, photography is highly subjective and so there will be highs and lows. Resilience and acceptance of criticism can be difficult at the start, but it’s all part of the learning curve! In my humble opinion, if you don’t experiment, show your work and solicit advice from others, you simply don’t progress.
