How to Make them Mountains Sing!

I know that if you’ve read the title, you’re already judging my merits as a travel writer.  I think, if you see the video, you might start to worry about my merits as a travel photographer as well.  But, it’s all good.  What I’ve learn over the years is that mistakes are good.  Well, they’re not great, but they’re OK.  Mistakes, if we take them as a learning opportunity, will teach us to make the...

How a Travel Photographer Takes a Vacation

Aside from the usual, “what’s your favourite country,” and “how do you make money?” the question I get asked the most by people is what I do, and where I go for a “vacation”.  Well, a while ago I answered that a bit with my article on defining the word vacation, but I’ve never really shown you how I do it.  The truth, as you may assume, is that as a professional traveller of any kind,...

How to Take Photos from Trains: A Photo Guide from the Via Rail

For the second time in my life, I had the brilliant opportunity to take the VIA Rail across Canada from Toronto to Edmonton.  And well I would have loved to make the journey all the way across to Vancouver, I really can’t complain.  This trip always has a way of grounding me and allowing my stressed to wash away, or at least be put on the back burner for a while.  I thought, that since I did a general article on the train...
