Daily Photo – Winter at the Glacier
Here’s a massive panorama I took deep in the mountains of the Southern Alps in New Zealand. What a place! We actually ended up sleeping here all night in the snow… it was incredible. I did all the packing myself for myself, Stu, and Ethan. I did a great job… except I forgot one important thing: a tent.
Daily Photo – Pink Toronto
Here’s another one of the thousands of photos I got in Toronto. It’s such a cool skyline and pretty much every sunset was epic. See that sky tower thing? I forgot what it was called. Maybe Sky Tower. Anyway, my first time here I did a walk around the outside… that was pretty trippy but totally fun!
Daily Photo – Midnight in Kyoto
Late one night, I jumped into a taxi and headed to one of my favorite areas of Kyoto to the Fushimi Inari Shrine. It was absolutely beautiful. The best thing about being there at night is that absolutely no one is around. You have the rule of the whole place to yourself… you can walk anywhere. It’s nice and safe and there is an infinity of places to explore.
If you’re a Passport Member then today you get to see not one, not two, not three but FOUR new quadcopter clips to inspire you that I just shot last week! Enjoy!
Over the Farm
I’ve been working hard on an art commission here in New Zealand and having the most amazing time. I do a pretty good mix of ground-based and air-based photography. In between, I capture a bit of video stuff as well. Here are four quick videos I shot while there.
I took my 2nd house and turned it into an AirBnB! I know travel to New Zealand is impossible right now, but, when you do come, be sure to check it out at the Secluded Paradise website!

I wonder how much practice this required…
Daily Photo – Temples in Kyoto
Kyoto has about 100 temples within a short trip from the city center. You can visit a different one every day and go for a walk. In fact, that’s a pretty good idea if you’re going to spend time there. I like to go on morning walks, so this is a great excuse to explore new areas and get the exercise done early in the day!
2020 was going to be my year of taking many train journeys. So far, I’ve only been on the COVID-19 train, and it has yet to leave the station. But then I thought back to our train journey in India and thought it would be fun to share these again!

And here’s all the videos from my previous time in India!

I saw this cool graphic on reddit…
Daily Photo – The Burlock Coast
Here’s a photo from the Burlock Coast restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I have a great relationship with that company and they are nice enough to let me stay for free. What a deal, eh? In exchange, I give them a bunch of photos, but it’s great because they don’t dictate what I should shoot. I just sort of roam around and find interesting things. This restaurant had so many textures and such cool lighting that it felt like the perfect place for a cool HDR.
Here’s a great video that highlights some of the new research being done. I know several people that have gone through this treatment for PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety and results have been amazing.
Daily Photo – The Ships Sailing into Singapore
I do really enjoy visiting Singapore for the sights, but I never quite feel “at home” or comfortable there. I’m not sure why. I think maybe because it doesn’t feel very organic. It feels a bit master-planned… sort of the opposite of some small town in Europe that has been there since medieval times and then slowly evolved into something that just feels nice and cozy.
