Destination Morocco: Want to Join Me?

After a very successful photography tour and workshop in Peru this May, I’m excited to announce my next big photo adventure tour.  We’re going to Morocco!  Want to come along for the ride? About Photography in Morocco Without a doubt, Morocco is one of the most photogenic countries I’ve ever travelled.  It seems like there is a worthy photo around every corner.  From an architecture standpoint, you have the stunning...

The Architectural Wonder of Brasilia, Brazil

Sure, Brasilia might not be high on most traveller’s destination lists for their visits to Brazil.  And the truth is, that aside from a couple museums, there really isn’t actually that much for tourists to do or see in Brasilia.  For photographers, however, this is an architectural photography playground.  And, in hindsight, I left myself with far too little time in the Brazilian capital.  The truth is that I really could...

Visiting the Pantanal from Cuiaba, Brazil

I visited the Pantanal in Brazil about 5 years ago on my first visit to the country.  However, I went in the heart of the rainy season and visited from the Campo Grande side.  Not only was it incredibly rainy, but any time the rain stopped the mosquitoes rose up.  I’m not going to lie in telling you, it was tough.  Thus, this time I made the wise decision of going in the dry season.  And, as maybe could have been obviously...

Great Success! Photos from our Peru Photography Tour and Workshop

Well, I can’t really believe how quickly that went. I suppose, in comparison to the 56 day tours I used to lead in South America, 14 days is a blink of the eye. But, it still seemed to whip through really quickly. Every day I kept waking up and thinking, “damn, it’s already day 6!”. I really couldn’t be happier with how the tour went. Yes, we had some issues to deal with like any trip; there was a railroad strike,...

The Cactus Flash: An Off-Camera Flash Game Changer?

Before leaving Canada this winter, I wandered into my local camera shop and asked if there was any “cheaper” pocket strobes that they might be able to recommend.  The salesman, who I can never manage to leave the shop without chatting photography gear with for over an hour with, told me that there was a cool product called Cactus Flash that was meant to arrive any day.  This flash, he told me, works with a hotshoe...
