The Burning Man Project presents the 12th Annual Artumnal Gathering

Burning Man has had a tremendous impact on me spiritually, emotionally, and artistically. It's raised my level of consciousness and helped to unlock my creative self. So I was excited when asked to participate in their annual fundraiser to support their art and civic programs.

I provided 4 fine art prints on metal, 3 of them are 36" by 24" in size, and the "XOXO" print is slightly larger at 40" x 32". You can bid on the prints at their online silent auction, but only for a limited time, bidding ends at 10:30PM Pacific Time on Saturday, November 17th.

My Top 30 Photos from Burning Man 2018 - I ROBOT

This was year number eight in a row for me, but every year feels like the first. This was a very cruisey year for me. No problems… smooth as silk all around, which is something I never really expect. Rene and Jonatas were two awesome roommates with great energy the whole time. I swear to god we have never laughed so much in our lives!

Also, I had many personal revelations and artistic breakthroughs. It sounds a bit too solipsistic to describe these in detail, but, they were amazing! I’m already a high-energy positive guy, but the event really takes me to the next level. And everything I see inspires me for the other 51 weeks a year. I’m so humbled by all the incredible art and all the awesome people out there.

I took over 8,000 photos this year and wanted to share my favorite 30! Feel free to share with friends and loved ones. We had another great photo walk and over 280 signed up for the Facebook event. But only half were able to stumble out there after doing god-knows-what. But it was still an amazing event that even included a proposal while thousands of photos were being taken! I've only included the first few below. Click here if you want to see the rest!

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's some recent images from StuckinCustoms.com

A Smooth Day On Lake Hayes
This is a good example of those 1/7 days where there is absolutely no wind at all. I took this with my quadcopter right in the middle of the lake. I’m always more worried flying it over water for some reason. I suppose that’s because it could always crash and that would be the end of it all. Although, realistically, 90% of the crashes over land if you’re 10 meters up could be catastrophic as well!

Longboarding In Beijing
How cool is this gal? This picture doesn’t even illustrate how graceful she was. I guess I haven’t seen a lot of longboarding, but there is almost kind of a dance that takes place while they are rolling from place to place with an occasional stunt thrown in. There were probably over 100 longboarders out. In the background, you may notice the famous “Bird’s Nest” from the Olympic Games.

Waiting for the Bus in Beijing
Beijing%20Fun%20%28133%20of%20442%29-X3.jpg
On my walk-around day in Beijing before I visited the Great Wall, I randomly walked around the city to visit areas I had never seen before. Beijing can honestly get a bit monotonous after a while, especially in the hot sun. But I still forced myself to move around with my camera because I knew I would eventually find something interesting.

Another Moody Night, This Time In Geneva
Spain%20Fun%20%28137%20of%20390%29-X3.jpg
We stopped in Geneva for just one evening on the European tour. It was such a cruisey town; I wish we could have stayed longer. As it was, we generally were not getting enough sleep and were hitting every town and immediately it was boots on the ground, doing stuff. This was supposed to be a “rest day” but I ended up wandering the streets till midnight taking photos.

Take Me To Your Leader
I’ve never been in this rainforest area of Singapore at night before. I thought it looked amazing and moody with all the lights + the mist that comes down from the upper walkways. I was walking around here with Dotz Soh and a few other people. We just slowly wandered around, taking photos, and drinking in all the sights and sounds. Even though this place is quite touristy, I think it is worth it!
