Africa – Stuck in Customs

A Cool Rainy Night in Tokyo

Becoming an Artist Day!

Today, we have a new Africa video for you… that’s right! In this one, I get hands-on with some long exposure night images.

Daily Photo – A Cool Rainy Night in Tokyo

I made this one with my Movie Night Presets that are available now. It’s one of my favorite presets, especially for moody night shots. I almost called it the “Blade Runner Presets” but I didn’t want to run afoul of those persnickety copyright lawyers in Hollywood.

Some Favorite Photos from the Last Africa Trip

Amazing Madagascar

Check out this preview of Madagascar, one of the many places we are going on the upcoming Africa Photo Workshop. I learned all sorts of things about this place… like 80% of the species there are found nowhere else on earth. There’s a whole documentary on Netflix too about it where you get to hear the sweet whispers of Sir David Attenborough!

Of course, the workshop is not just going to Madagascar, but also Zimbabwe and Botswana. It is going to be amazing!

Here’s a collection of some favorites, I can hardly wait for the next one! ๐Ÿ™‚

A Street Scene From Paris

I’ve had a ton of fun going back into my unprocessed back catalog and re-processing them with some of these latest tools. In today’s adventure, you’ll see a fairly “harsh” (maybe that is too harsh of a word) treatment of this street scene from Paris.

Daily Photo – The Lonely Dunes

Here’s one of my favorite (and rather simple) photos from Namibia. The deserts there are so beautiful, and it is a little confusing to figure out where to shoot. It all sort of looks the same, in a strange, flowing way. So, I found this all to be a particularly interesting challenge… actually I think everyone at our Africa workshop did!

Bel in the Middle

Well, here’s yet another experiment in fun! I have a goofy and funny neighbor here in New Zealand who is a photographer. We decided to try out a new concept for a critique show. Here’s episode 1! Tell us what ya think! ๐Ÿ™‚

Daily Photo – Bel in the Middle

Man, these guys loved Bel. They really loved her hair. The couldn’t stop touching it and she was just giggling in her silly way. All in all, we spent about half a day in this little village. You’ll see the whole thing in an upcoming episode that we are premiering on YouTube from Africa.

Having a Snack in Africa

Join us in Africa!

I think we have two slots left for our Africa Photo Adventure! Come join me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Daily Photo – Having a Snack in Africa

If I could be any animal in Africa, I think I’d like to be an elephant or a leopard. I think being an elephant would be fun because you can just kind of roam around, eat all day, hang out with your family and buddies, and contemplate life. Yeah, you have to watch out for the occasional poacher that wants to grind your tusks into a homeopathic medicine for superstitious Chinese people, but that’s more of an existential threat. The other option would be to be a leopard, like this one. You kind of rest all day, and then when you get hungry, you run 100mph and catch a warthog snack, then rest again, eating your warthog s’more on a tree.
