Join Me in Peru AND Bolivia for a Photo Adventure

It’s with great pleasure that I announce that I’m now booking a second photo tour in South America in 2015! Since the booking for the first workshop – which is taking place in Peru, May 2015 – has been so successful, we decided to add another date to accommodate the people that couldn’t make the first trip’s dates.  Specifically, we had in mind the many teachers who let us know that they could only...

Recovery and Ruins in Huanchaco, Peru

Northern Peru weren’t exactly kind to me.  In Mancora, I picked up a nasty stomach bug from a hamburger.  So rather than spending the 3 days there surfing, eating ceviche, and laying around on the beach, I spent it on the toilet, and letting anti-biotics wage war in my body.  So, by the time I got to Huanchaco I was feeling really itchy to go out and take some pictures, and explore a little bit. I’ve been to Huanchaco...

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,...

Adventure in Baños de Agua Santa

Returning to Baños de Agua Santa, Ecuador has been something on my to-do list since the last time I visited back in my tour leading days.  I had plans to make a stop in back about 4 years ago after visiting the Galapagos Islands.  However, on my way out of town, my camera gear was stolen on the bus (I’m sure some of you remember that story). So, here I am, 4 years older and 4 years wiser, back in Baños de Agua Santa: ground zero...

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...

Shooting Portraits in the Otavalo Market

If you’ve been following along with this blog over the past couple months, you might know that I’ve made it a goal to start adding more of a human element to my photos.  Looking back through my portfolio, I often found great landscapes, and beautiful buildings but my favourite photos had some human element melded in.  And well I’m not by any means a strobist or portrait photographer, how can you call yourself a...
