Touring the World at the Cayman Cookout

Daily Photo – Touring the World at the Cayman Cookout

On one of the days of the Cayman Cookout event, there are about 12 different “booths” set up where they make their absolute best meal from their country. It’s incredible and you get absolutely filled up with every possible food… then you have to go take a nap for a while because it’s almost impossible to move!

Sunset in Aruba

New Jason Silva on MDMA and healing with MAPS

Here’s a new video from Jason Silva. He mentions MAPS which is a great organization to which I have donated!

Daily Photo – Sunset in Aruba

Now that I’ve been living in the mountains and trees for so long, I’m thinking about how fun it is at the beach! It might be the opposite for people on the beach. Well, maybe not. I know people that live on the beach that would never even consider living anywhere else. You know how beach people are…

Above the Starbucks

Passport Sunday Party

In today’s Passport Sunday, you’ll see a fun edit of today’s daily photo from Tokyo!

Japanese Girls in the Wild

I make a few inappropriate references in today’s Passport Sunday video, so I don’t apologize for that. You’ll see how this edit does a little bit more of an extreme HDR illustrative look. Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Above the Starbucks

This is a fun tableau vivant from an evening scene in Tokyo. I wander around most of the day with my camera trying to find interesting slices of life here and there. This particular spot is right by the Starbucks in Harajuku.

St. Basil’s Cathedral in Red Square

Gigapixel

Thanks Stu for sending me this… here’s a 48 gigapixel zoomable photo of The Night Watch!

Daily Photo – St. Basil’s Cathedral in Red Square

Ever since I saw photos of this place when I was a little boy, I wanted to visit Russia. It seemed like it was right out of some kind of fantasy novel with the unique onion domes and cartoonish colors. I ended up there at a good point in the day when the yellow sun was setting, making all the colors really pop in a warm manner against the backdrop of the cool blue sky.

The Lost Lighthouse

Burning Man Portfolio

Today’s daily photo gives me a good opportunity to mention my Burning Man Portfolio that you can enjoy at your leisure! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Lost Lighthouse

I’m not sure if that is the exact name of this art piece or not, but it’s my name for it. Sometimes people online get REALLY ANGRY when I don’t name the art piece and the artist. Man, I take thousands of photos out there of everything and I can’t remember. Besides, I know a lot of artists out there and they really don’t care one way or another. Anyway, I hope you enjoy all the Burning Man photos above!

A Morning Walk in Glenorchy

Daily Photo – A Morning Walk in Glenorchy

With almost every photo workshop, we take the whole team out to Glenorchy to walk along these amazing paths. There are not any bad photos around here, no matter what the weather is like. The paths themselves are little works of art, and getting some kind of path in a photo is often an easy win!

Exploring Istanbul

Amazing Tech

Check out this incredible new tech for the Playstaytion 5 with the Unreal Engine.

Daily Photo – Exploring Istanbul

I find Mosques often to be the most photogenic of the various kinds of religious buildings. They are all quite different and unique architecture. Another cool thing, that most people don’t know, is that you can go into any mosque whenever you want, as long the prayer services are not going on (assuming you’re not a Muslim). Depending on the country, women can go in too as long as they wear a headscarf…

A Cruise in Miami

Daily Photo – A Cruise in Miami

I took this photo a few years ago after I got off a cruise there in Miami. Isn’t it hard to imagine going on a cruise again? I mean, maybe in a few years when they have all this infection stuff settled… but right now, no way. I know a lot of people out there are having problems with this shit economy, but you can always be thankful that you don’t own a cruise line, hey?

Bathhouses in Budapest

Daily Photo – Bathhouses in Budapest

There are different old Turkish baths all over Budapest. This particular one had about seven different pools, and this was the most ornate. I’m not 100% sure, but I think the roof can partially retract too. I can imagine that a century earlier it would have probably been the coolest place to hang out in town. Underneath this pool, there are a few other hot baths… some of which were way too hot for me.

Cool Boarder in St. Petersburg

Free Tutorial!

Since many people are bored at home and looking to add to their skillset, I have just released my best tutorial for free and it already has just over $92,000 worth of downloads – awesome! People seem to love it and thank you for the great feedback. I’ll keep it free as long we’re stuck here in this weird isolation… Beyond that, we have the “Passport” monthly subscription (at https://stuckincustoms.com/passport/) that has over 300 videos waiting for you. Great how-to stuff, behind-the-scenes, inspirational stuff, tutorials and more! I do the same thing as Sam Harris in that if you are struggling financially, for whatever reason, just contact the team and we’ll give it to you for free for a year. I don’t want money to stand in the way of buying keys to unlock your creativity. We also have some other cool Passport videos coming up! I release a new one every Sunday on the blog and there’s some amazing stuff in the pipeline. Anyway, thanks again for enjoying the tutorials and I’m in productivity overdrive…since…I… don’t have anything else to do! Last, we have a free group here on Facebook where you can share your creations, ask questions, and make some cool new friends. As opposed to a lot of Facebook, it’s a guaranteed asshole-free zone! 🙂 Cheers and enjoy!

Daily Photo – Cool Boarder in St. Petersburg

In Russia, you can just be as cool as you wanna be. I haven’t taken this many people/street photos as I did there except for the times I go to Burning Man! I saw almost no photographers there, so most people were very confused while I was taking their photos. Well, not the young people, they were all cool with it. The older ones seemed a bit more suspicious, probably because they grew up under hardcore communism when everyone was spying on one another.
