I recently took my family on a trip around Florida and the Caribbean

Every year I like to take the family on a trip somewhere around the world. This year we traveled to Florida then on to the Caribbean. And now that we're back from our mammoth trip I've had a bit of time to make a highlight reel with the best bits from our big adventure! There are a few photography tips and tricks for you guys sprinkled amongst all of the crazy antics my kids got up to, so have a watch and maybe learn something new :)

Grand Cayman Recap with my favorite funny-man Gino Barasa

Join me in the Grand Cayman islands with Gino as we talk all about Cayman Cookout hosted by The Ritz-Carlton. We tell photo stories, tour the beach, talk to the only world-famous chef José Andrés (also the first chef ever to be sued by a President!), famous mixologist Bob Peters, and you'll hear a funny Anthony Bourdain story.

One-Day Photography Workshops in London, Paris and Berlin!

I'm doing a series of day-long workshops in London, Paris, and Berlin - these are great events and you get all kinds of goodies. I know that many of you are coming to our ten European photo walks, and I wanted to add these in so that we could do some deep dives into my process, my methods, and all the tools I use.

Reminder: The Text HDR Tutorial is Always Free!

I keep a completely FREE HDR Tutorial on my website. It is a living document that continues to evolve over the years. It goes over everything you need to get started and is a great introduction to the basics of HDR photography and post processing.

Here are some of my favorite photos that I've processed in Aurora

My big goal in St Thomas was to get some decent aerial shots from the quad. I was one-minute away from making a tragic mistake in Customs. Yes, imagine that! I left my quadcopter on the boat when I was going through customs on Virgin Gorda. I didn't realize I wouldn't see the boat till the end of the day! I had to get the police to let me out of customs so I could run back to the boat to get the quad. I arrived back into customs, sweating while carrying a suspicious looking device... nothing to see here... just move along...
Two girls check their instagram during a rather dramatic sunset in Naples. Every night we were there had redonkulous sunsets... I forgot how pretty they can be in Florida!
One great thing about staying at all these Ritz-Carlton hotels around the world is that the concierge and the team set up amazing activities. You don't just have to sit around the room or the pool – they create really fun experiences. And it's a good way to force the kids to do things they don't normally like to do. For example, my son Ethan hates Yoga, but he just goes along with it when there is another authority figure (other than my wife or me!) involved.
While in Fort Lauderdale, we had some crazy storms roll in across the ocean. It turned out great for photos! I admit I probably stayed on the balcony too long to take photos… I went down to the beach to get a bunch too, but the ones from up here seemed more dramatic.
This was the view on my first morning from the room I was sharing with Gino atop the Ritz-Carlton. Somehow, we got the penthouse. We'd get into the elevator with all these people and then they would look at US clicking on the Penthouse button and they would shake their head ruefully. Well, mostly at Gino. Anyway, we were greeted with this incredible moon set on our first morning here. And the day just got better from there! :)
Here's a crazy shot from Aruba. We thought it'd be a "great idea" to get the kids out for a little bit of family paddleboard action. Well, it was pretty great for about 10 minutes until Ethan started using "ramming speed" and trying to capsize his sisters. They started fighting back (good for them), and then it turned into WWF on paddleboards!
On my last night in San Juan, I went around to do a little exploratory fun walk with my friend Scott Jarvie. After moving around and through the town, we ended out by the docks. How pretty eh? It was a nice and moody night with all the clouds that made it even more romantic. I mean, I love a good romantic night with Jarvie.
I kept coming back to this corner again and again… one time I got here and there was this gal crossing the street in a shapely black dress, and I thought it made the scene so much more interesting.
