Prijeko Palace Hotel, Dubrovnik

Prijeko Palace Hotel

Prijeko Palace Hotel in the middle of the picture

This isn’t something that happens every day. The Prijeko Palace Hotel in Dubrovnik has themed one of its guest rooms with my art photography and named the room after me. Quite a privilege I must say. It is a beautifully restored old palace in the heart of the old city. The hotel is full of character and charm a wonderful place from which to explore. If you are ever thinking about somewhere to have a holiday, then Dubrovnik is certainly a place you should consider.

Have a look at their website here

Below I have taken the description of The Chapman room from their website and a few photos to give an idea of what it is like. Enjoy!

The Chapman room is dedicated to Russell Chapman (UK; 1968). This comfortable room of 22m2 with a pitched roof has windows overlooking the quiet street.

Russell Chapman started studying photography when he was 10 years old, teaching himself all the aspects of art and science that are needed in order to produce a photograph that will bring pleasure to others. Photography is about creating a moment that encapsulates not only what was seen at that moment but what was also felt.




Photography workshop in Scotland

I’m in the process of putting together a plan for a photography workshop in Scotland starting next May. The workshop will be for those who want to improve their photography using the stunning sea and landscape of Scotland. I will take small groups of 6 people and it will be some of the most amazing experiences that Scotland has to offer for a photographer, along with some of the most delicious seafood dining on offer anywhere in the world. Watch this space.


Part of a series I am creating called ‘Jump’

If you are wondering where the gorgeous backdrop to this picture was taken, it is from the top of Mt Lema looking down to Lugano and its lake. This is in Ticino, the Italian speaking part of Switzerland and very close to Italy. I have to say that this whole area is great for walking. That day a group of us walked from Mt Tamaro to Mt Lema. It is a 15k (12mile) hike up and down several peaks. The highest being over 2000m (6000ft) So if you are looking for somewhere new to explore and enjoy stunning views, this part of the world is well worth a visit.
