Passport – Stuck in Customs

Edward Norton Print

Passport Sunday Fun

In today’s Passport Sunday video, you’ll see some of the behind-the-scenes that went into the creation of a new work I did for a celebrity in Hollywood. It was a mammoth project that took about half a year. The final photo is a deconstructed panorama made out of 54 different photos. I hope you enjoy!

Edward Norton Print

Here’s a special thing for Passport Sunday! I recently made a print for the actor Edward Norton. It was a custom print of Brooklyn that’s made out of 54 different photos I took from a drone. Here’s how it came about!

Teahouse HDR

More from Chengdu

Today’s Passport Sunday how-to-video is from Chengdu, China. I do a rather aggressive edit today, as you’ll see! Either way, here are some of my other favorite photos from Chengdu.

Teahouse HDR

Here’s a RATHER extreme HDR treatment! I don’t usually go this whole hog, but this place had such a Communist dystopian feel that I decided to go for it anyway! I hope you enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Final edits on a vineyard photo

Join Passport Sunday!

Today we have another how-to video for Passport Sunday Members! It joins the hundreds of others that are in there waiting for you to discover them! In today’s video, I work with a panorama of a beautiful vineyard near Picton, New Zealand.

Final edits on a vineyard photo

As much as I love Aurora HDR, it still has a few problems that you have to correct with Photoshop. It’s less than 1% of the time, but this is one of those cases!

Passport Sunday Fun!

Today’s video for Passport Members is a quick and dirty edit from a single RAW file that I think you’ll really like. I was pretty sure that this overexposed photo was a goner, but I was shocked at what Aurora HDR did to it!

The Overexposed Pirate Ship

I use Aurora HDR so much and I’m often surprised how I am still amazed by it. I almost just deleted this photo altogether. It was completely overexposed but somehow Aurora just made it look perfect! Enjoy!

Passport Sunday 360 Video

Today, for you awesome Passport Members, I have a new 360 video when I am taking photos in Madagascar!

Exploring Madagascar

While on a 4-hour road trip in Madagascar, we stopped for lunch in some random town. I recorded a quick video here to show you a little bit of what I saw while there. Sorry in advance for the abrupt ending – the battery on the 360 ran out! ๐Ÿ™

Come to my New Zealand Workshop!

Today, if you’re a Passport Member you get to see a new 360 video from our recent workshop in Africa! We had a ton of fun… and you’ll get to hear a little from some of the guests!

You can see more about what happens on the workshop here.

More from Africa!

A few weeks ago, I shared a 360 video where I talked to a few of the workshop members that joined me in the wilds of Africa. This year you get to hear even more… I think my favorite one was when Phillipa and I were talking and lemurs were jumping all over us! ๐Ÿ™‚

(As always with 360 video you can turn the video around while watching.)

The Amazing Organ at Notre-Dame in Montreal

Passport Freebies!

I wanted to give you two free videos that we released to Stuck In Customs Passport Members earlier this year! This is obviously an incentive to get you to join. When you do, you’ll get fresh videos every Sunday! Also, I’d appreciate your support… it keeps the website going and we can keep feeding the machine! ๐Ÿ™‚


Daily Photo – The Amazing Organ at Notre Dame in Montreal

This organ is one of the only organs the Catholics are allowed to touch and look at during services. I have all sorts of ways I poke fun at the Catholics… probably because I went to an all-boy Jesuit school for four years where they tried to brainwash me. But, it didn’t work! However, having just poked more fun at them, I do actually have a decent amount of respect for the Jesuits. They at least have a lot of critical thought and philosophy that makes up the backbone of their teachings. There are a few logical fallacies here and there where it breaks down for me. But hey, that’s just me. I want to go back and do some DMT with some of my old teachers to see what they think.
