Brought me to the next level.
"This course helped understand new ways of improving my winter photography. I enjoyed the full manual shoot video. Things I never thought to consider when shooting manually."
Julian Stocker, Norway
"I enjoyed going through the course. There was a lot of useful information from clothes layering to way more. The photography info was really well done and the composition ideas very useful.
I liked that it was short and yet complete. I will refer back often."

Introducing the brand new Urbex Glove for Street Photography. This glove is new to our 2020 glove lineup we are so excited to be offering a solution to all of the winter street photographers who brave the streets during the colder months.
From candid shots to geometric compositions to vacant alleyways, the concrete jungle is a photographer’s playground with endless opportunities for interesting shots to be had.
Street photography can be one of the hardest types of photography because it requires a great deal of patience and flexibility. Your subjects are often on the move, it's quick pace, your composition is ever-changing in front of the lens and that magic moment of interaction really does only last for a split second
It's all about having your gear dialed and ready to press that shutter in split second, which is why we’ve created the Urbex Street Photography Glove.
The Urbex was created to help street photographers maintain a balance of style, warmth, and functionality. We wanted to make a glove that looks great while walking around town but also performed for the photographer.
These guidelines led us to creative decisions, like a timeless tan goat leather shell. Keeping the urban look with a soft and pliable feel, allowing the photography to wrap their hand firmly around their kit. A DWR coating has been applied the leather to protect against that winter precipitation.
For warmth, we utilise our favourite merino wool liner to keep you warm and comfortable, and keeping the glove thin enough to operate your gear.
With warm hands and access to your dials, you can now forget about messing with your gloves and instead spend your time looking for that angle. Getting that shot no matter which city you are exploring.
This glove is jam-packed with photography-specific specs so let’s jump into it!
This glove is unisex sizing so when measuring your hand, compare the measurements to Unisex Sizing Chart. Remember, we design our gloves to fit snugly to ensure the best camera feel so if you like a looser fitting glove or are between sizes, you might want to size up.
This glove is designed for mild winter conditions. It’s perfect to photography where you need to take the chill off your skin but you’re never too far from a warm cafe or a hot cup of tea.

Whether we observe mountains, hills, rivers, lakes, ponds or the sea, we get that refreshing change of perspective and joy of witnessing beautiful landscapes.
Landscape photographers like to have fun with light and exposure. There are so many things you can play with, like contrast, shadows, highlights, sunrises, sunsets, golden hours...
It's always good time for going into landscape photography.

To really let our gloves shine, keeping your hands warm and accessing your dials all winter long, it’s important to start with keeping your core warm.
When it’s cold, our bodies are experts at keeping us alive. The body takes the blood away from the hands and feet and directs it to the core. We are unconsciously willing to sacrifice our digits in order to keep our organs functioning.
So, how do you keep your core warm? It’s not as easy as just putting on a big jacket, or adding an extra hoodie.
It comes down to layering, and layering with the correct materials.
