    I’m Back

    I’m Back

          I’ve ignored my blog for almost three years, preferring to interact with the world through Facebook.  I’ve concentrated on photo tours, some with Canon Explorer of Light Jennifer Wu and some on my own. Jen and I have traveled to Namibia, Tanzania, and Iceland and are running photo tours to Madagascar and […]

    A Rangefinder in Namibia

    A Rangefinder in Namibia

                    I’m about to lead the 2nd of two back-to-back photo tours in Namibia. Most of my clients are shooting with DSLRS from Canon, Nikon, and Sony, and I use Canon for my trips to Africa, but this time I brought my Leica Monochrom, a little black & […]

    Death Valley with Jennifer Wu

    Death Valley with Jennifer Wu

                    Jennifer Wu and I enjoyed leading a workshop in Death Valley. We had to decide on the fly where to photograph given shifting weather, but luck was on our side. Jen gave lectures on how to photograph the night sky during mid day, and we shot at […]

      All shot at workshops with Canon Explorer of Light Jennifer Wu, most on our 2012 visit. One is exceedingly small but still qualifies until it melts.

    Off to Iceland

    Off to Iceland

    Jennifer Wu and I leave for Iceland tomorrow to lead a joint photo tour. She is the energizer bunny so I’m confident the clients will return home with a trove of images and severe sleep deprivation. We go to the Golden Circle, into interior, along the southern coast and to the ice lagoon. Before we […]

    Iceland’s Interior: Landmannalauger

    Iceland’s interior While most tourists concentrate on the southern portion of the Ring Road, the interior landscape is the most dramatic. This is the land where Super jeeps rumble across swiftly moving glacier streams, over volcanic rubble and even onto the glaciers themselves. An ordinary four-wheel-drive vehicle can make it to Landmannalauger, perhaps the most […]

    Iceland’s Ice and a Photo Tour

    Canon Explorer of Light Jennifer Wu and I are leading a photo tour of Iceland from August 19 to August 29, 2012. I’ll post some text and galleries about Iceland over the next couple weeks, starting with Ice itself. Ice covers only a small fraction of Iceland, but the ice fields that exist are the […]

    Death Valley Workshop with Jennifer Wu

    Death Valley Workshop with Jennifer Wu

    Canon Explorer of Light Jennifer Wu and I just wrapped up our Death Valley Workshop. We shot the dunes and salt pans, the high escarpment of Telegraph Peak rising more than two vertical miles over Badwater, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, and the night sky. We devoted most evenings to star photography, sharing […]

The shooting can be taxing but the rewards are great. I intend to put together a trip for a small group for the next Kumbh, which will be held […]
