Driving Down California’s Pacific Coast Highway & Our One Day Hike In Yosemite National Park

I’ve just returned from the trip of a lifetime; a two week road trip driving down and around California’s Pacific Coast Highway. Over two weeks our stops included (in order): San Francisco (part I) Santa Cruz Monterrey Carmel-by-the-sea Santa Barbara Los Angeles Coarsegold Yosemite National Park Napa & San Francisco (part II) A photo posted by Mitch Waite (@mitch_w8) on Aug 3, 2016 at 7:51am PDT We covered over 1,000 miles and every stop had a different vibe. We drove from […]


Over Christmas and New Year I visited Canada for the first time, and caught my first hockey game at the Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto. The Toronto Maple Leafs faced off against the New York Islanders. Here’s the footage from my Sony RX100-II cut together in iMovie. Go Leafs Go!

Secret Cinema presents…The Empire Strikes Back

Last night I had the pleasure of parting ways with £75 to see Secret Cinema’s latest event, screening Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. I’ve seen ticket prices increase from £35, to £55 and now £75……..but this was worth every galactic credit. If you are a Star Wars fan living in and around London, I can assure you that you will have multiple nerdgasms whilst attending this. This is my 4th Secret Cinema now, and after last night I’m more in awe of […]

Istanbul Trip

Istanbul…..what can I say? An amazing city? Great people? Beautiful architecture? One of most mesmerising sunsets I’ve ever seen in the world? Delicious food? Memory-searing scents? Yes!

London Shots

Happy (belated) New Year! Christmas was certainly a busy time seeing family and catching up with friends. However, I managed to escape into London with the camera and finally head up to the top of The Monument (near Bank), Borough Market at London Bridge and then around City Hall by Tower Bridge. The full album which I continuously update is available to view on Flickr.

Returning To Paris [2014]

At the end of August I took a few days holiday to roam the streets of Paris with my camera. I’ve been to Paris before, so didn’t feel the need to spend my time queuing for the Eiffel Tower, Le Louvre, etc. So instead I set off each morning from Bastille and just walked…..snapping away at Parisian street life. My first port of call is to scale to a high point of a new city when I first arrive. I […]

Secret Cinema Presents… Back To The Future

Back To The Future, to me, is undoubtedly one of the best trilogies to come out of Hollywood. It has comedy, action, an eccentric scientist, time travel disruption, and car sounds effects that anyone would want in their Renault Clio. On Amazon I saw an in car flux capacitor that lights up when plugged in to the cigarette lighter, and I needed it (immediately skipped over “wanted it”). As a kid I had white Nike’s with a red swoosh because […]

Vietnam Trip [2010]

Whilst digging through the photo archives recently, I rediscovered the shots from my Vietnam trip. I travelled there back in 2010 at Easter time for about 18 days. I met up with some friends of mine that were travelling around South East Asia for 6 months, and tagged along on this portion of their trip. I arrived in Hanoi, then with our backpacks we made our way on sleeper buses down to Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang and then finishing in Ho Chi Minh. […]

New York City

After rummaging around the the extensive archives of my photography hard drive, I rediscovered my shots from New York in 2009. One of the main highlights was being present in Time Square for President Obama’s official inauguration into The White House. With the shots being taken on a Sony Cybershot digital camera, it’s safe to say they needed a bit of a post-production boost. You can view the rest of the album over on my Flickr profile here.

The Burger Chronicles

“Big Kahuna Burger?…The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast!” At some point in June 2012, my friend Luke and I made a pact; to find the best burger in London. What is it that so satisfying about a good burger? The meat? The glazed bun? The relish and salty sides that accompany it? Or is it the nostalgia of every bite that takes people back to their childhoods? Many bloggers have taken on the task before in search of this holy grail, but […]
