Join me in a city near you for an amazing evening of inspiration and art!

I'm on a photo tour visiting 40 cities over the next three years across the US, Canada, Latin, and South America. You can see the locations announced so far at Rediscovering the Americas.

At each city, we're hosting a small, intimate event, where I'll share some of my favorite new & old photos, tell stories, and discuss some counter-intuitive thoughts behind the creative process. These special events will be inspirational and encourage you to help find your artistic (and maybe true) self.

Along my own path, I figured out a lot about the importance of the dissolution of the ego, being vulnerable, being fearless, and going into every action with love. I know that might sound hokey, but I really mean it. That is perhaps the core theme that runs through all my photos. In the end, before the Q&A, I'll also share a new nine-minute short film I'm working on. And then, during the Q&A, let it rip! Ask me absolutely anything! After the Q&A, we'll have a mix n' mingle. There will be a cash bar if that's your thing. Feel free come up and ask me anything if you were too embarrassed to ask during the public Q&A bit. For those of you that have been to my events in the past, then you know I'm the last one to leave the room in my usual people-pleasing mode!

There is a small ticket fee ($9) in limited numbers which we set simply for crowd control so we don't overwhelm the venues. I'll also have a few copies of my new book there. I'm happy to sign them for you (or you can bring your own if you already bought it!). See you soon! :) Come armed with questions! :)

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.


Some recent photos from StuckInCustoms.com

Lighthouse in a Mysterious Place
Does anyone know where this lighthouse is? I actually Do Not! Or, at least, I cannot remember. I am 99% sure it is in Florida, but I forgot to tag it on input. Normally, I am great at tagging locations when I import into Lightroom, but something strange must have happened this time around... It was about 8 years ago, and I have very little memory of where the hell I was then! :)

Japanese Children Emerging from an Egg
This is a fun quick Pixel shot I got while in Tokyo. Man, I love that camera so much. Here's a quick tip for it (and I believe the iPhone and other cameras have something similar). Whenever I see something cool, the fastest way to get a photo is to double-click the power button. This gets the camera right into photo mode. Then, just push the volume up and you get a quick snap. Easy peasy!

Over Laucala Island
Here's one of the many amazing villas that are scattered around the resort at Laucala Island in Fiji. It's one of those situations where you never see your neighbors and you feel incredibly private. So private, in fact, that I spent most of my time inside and outside completely nude. I don't know why I needed an adverb in front of nude. The word itself is already complete.

The Matterhorn
Here's a new photo of the Matterhorn I finished a few weeks ago. I took this while I was in Zermatt, which is one of my favorite Swiss places! If it looks like it was cold there, well, yes, yes it was. Over 500 people have died trying to climb to the top. This is one of many reasons I did not attempt a climb to the top.

Queenstown Morning
I was down by the docks at Lake Wakatipu one morning and I was greeted with this rather amazing sunrise! I didn't have my tripod with me, but I squeezed off three quick brackets to get this scene. It was edited in Aurora HDR 2019... man, that program is amazing. And I'm not just saying that because I helped make it with the team from Skylum!

Another Walk in Glenorchy
I've done the walk through the wetlands in Glenorchy about half a dozen times. Each one is different, but my favorites are when the waters are still on windless mornings. You get these sorts of perfect reflections. I know, a "walk through the wetlands" sounds a bit swampy and dull... but not around here!

In the Chengdu Tea House
Man, these old dudes in the outskirts of China really seem to get a kick out of drinking tea and smoking all day. It seems like the thing to do. And everyone seems really quite old... someone they just keep tickin' along. Although, I guess this is not really a fair sampling because I'm technically not seeing all the dead ones.
