Tyler Collins Interview

How did you get into photography?

I've had an interest in photography for probably the last 10 years or so, but I never owned a DSLR until 3 years ago when I decided to spend a month's wages on a Nikon D7000!

What equipment do you use?

I recently went on a trip to the Picos De Europa for some trekking, and I've realised that I carry far too much equipment that never gets used. So these days I'm usually seen carrying just a Nikon D750 and usually have a Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 attached to it along with my far too heavy tripod.

What are the ingredients for success within landscape photography?

First you need to be actually outside, you can really get caught up looking at other people's images online. Secondly, without doubt it has to be patience. I've seen myself in the past sitting in the one spot for a couple of hours just waiting for the right light to hit a scene! Third, I always tell people to get off the beaten track, get away from the normal tourist spots, climb a mountain, jump over a fence or 2, be that person that creates an image rather than copying - that's not to say you shouldn't go to the tourist spots.

Where in Northern Ireland is your favourite place to shoot?

When I'm just looking to head out some evening for a few shots, without doubt it has to be the Causeway Coast, but apart from that I LOVE the mountains - but don't get out into them as much as I would like to.

What do you think makes Northern Ireland such a popular place to shoot landscape photography?

It's probably the diversity in the landscapes throughout the entire country. Every corner in Ireland has something completely different to offer.
