Thailand – Stuck in Customs

Fishing Near Bang Saray

Daily Photo – Fishing Near Bang Saray

What a cool place, eh? I love how the Thai people paint all their boats are super bright colors. I think if someone floated by with a boat all painted in soft pastels they would tease them, Thai-fisherman style. I don’t know that for a fact… I really am not sure where Thai fishermen stand on these important social issues…

Stepping Stones to the Sunset in Koh Samui

Great Joe Rogan Experience

Here’s one of my favorite new ones… I really like this Graham Hancock guy too.

Daily Photo – Stepping Stones to the Sunset in Koh Samui

I would head here almost every night to watch the sunset across the reflecting pool at the Ritz-Carlton in Koh-Samui, Thailand. I even thought about getting a place here for a while, and I still haven’t totally given up on that idea. Thailand would actually be a super cool place to live, I think… I have many friends that have moved there. It’s very safe, housing is cheap, and the food is both great and inexpensive!

Thailand Deep into the Night

Growing Up without Borders Interview

Here’s a fun interview I did a few days ago! ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Daily Photo – Thailand Deep into the Night

I rarely take long exposure shots in these tropical places at night, but, when I do, I’m always surprised! It looks a little weird, right? Like it could be daytime but with really strange lighting? I think that’s what I like about long exposure night photography… in that everything comes out a bit surprising!

Drama in Thailand

The Mandalorian

Don’t forget to check out this new amazing show! It’s really well done… better than a lot of the movies in a way!

Daily Photo – Drama in Thailand

One evening in Pattaya I sneaked down through the jungle to get up close to this temple. It wasn’t quite open for public consumption yet, but I simply had to get a photo. I thought the outline of the thing was so epic, so I tried to focus on that in post.

In Studio in Bang Saray

Daily Photo – In Studio in Bang Saray

My friend Chris Craker has an amazing music studio a bit south of Pattaya in Thailand in a little beach town called Bang Saray. I stayed here for about a week and it was cool to watch so many music artists at work together. I don’t really hang out around musicians… I’m kind of a loner artist on my own, so it was super interesting to watch how they all worked and collaborated together.

Island-Hopping in Thailand

Cool Article in Wired

Here is a cool article about “The Mystery of Memory” in WIRED magazine that features me, my photography, and a bit of scientific analysis. If you look at it on the web, you’ll see it has an incredibly cool format for scrolling too… never seen anything quite like it!

Daily Photo – Island-Hopping in Thailand

One day while at Phulay Bay, I jumped onto a boat to take a tour of the archipelago. A few of the islands had these little caves where people would have little shops and sell things. You can see one of them tucked away there back underneath the limestone awning.

Daily Photo – Floating over Krabi

Here is a recent processing of a single RAW file I took over Krabi. I never get tired of looking at these pleasant archipelagos out there drifting across the ocean. I’ve thought about spending more time in Thailand, actually… one thing is for sure… you are always guaranteed a good sunset!

The Missing Link

Updated Kit.com

Don’t forget to pop over to my Kit.com to see all my latest goodies. I’m actually the least materialistic person in the world (!!), but I do like to have a few goodies to help my creative life and inspire me.

Daily Photo – The Missing Link

Thailand is surrounded by islands with some of the most epic shapes. It’s really fun just to hang out in front of the boat with your camera, and do a bit of target practice. I probably took over 100 photos up there, and this one was one of my favorites. Even though the water was that perfect Thai-blue, I decided to reduce it to black and white to keep it about the shapes rather than the color.

Over Bangkok

New Insta360 One X Camera

I’m loving this thing! It’s so much better than the previous one… shooting at 5.7K! Be sure to check out my updated Kit.com to see it my gadgets list!

Daily Photo – Over Bangkok

I only had one night in Bangkok, but it wasn’t nearly as exciting as that song would indicate. I was pretty exhausted, but I did find this cool rooftop restaurant to have a great dinner with amazing views. Right after this, a huge thunderstorm started, and I was out without an umbrella. It was at least a 15-minute walk back to my place (I stayed at the St. Regis – super nice!), and I could not decide if I wanted to get soaked or wait it out. Eventually, the universe delivered me a perfect umbrella that already had the St. Regis logo on it! I was like… hey, that’s kinda weird. But I took it as a sign… a sign to use an umbrella.

A Midnight Stroll in Krabi

Critique Show #3

Here’s yet another critique show for ya! ๐Ÿ™‚ I actually am not sure if we’ll keep these going or not, as they take quite a bit of time to create and edit. But, hey, you never know… it’s a good experiment!

Daily Photo – A Midnight Stroll in Krabi

This is the entrance to the Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Krabi. How beautiful is this place? I actually did yoga in that place a few times… It was a perfect and serene place to practice. I would also take strolls around here at night, always with my camera in tow.
