Canon 16-35mm f/4 Unboxing and Specs

I know what you’re thinking, did I hit win the lottery?  No, no I didn’t.  In fact, this and my new Canon 6D body is actually the result of saving for about an entire year.  So, yes, I’m still poor.  In fact, like always, I basically sold all my savings on the camera gear I felt I needed to help take my image quality to the next level. Now, this is, of course, an unboxing of the new-ish Canon 16-35mm f/4 IS.  Canon...

My World in “mostly” Black and White

I’ve been planning on doing a bit of a photo project for a while now.  It’s been something I’ve been trying to add to my store for a bit now, but really haven’t had time to do it.  I was also missing out on a bit of the inspirational side of things when it came to a project like this.  However, recently I finally made it happen. If you read my review of Photoshop Elements 13, you might remember that I showed...

Unboxing the Canon 6D and First Impressions

For many people, getting a new camera body is just that.  For me, finally getting to put a Canon 6D into my camera bag is so rewarding.  It’s a reminder of how far I’ve come, how hard I’ve worked, and how much I struggled to get to where I am.  It’s also a reminder that I have a long way to go.  You see, most travel photographers aren’t rich.  In fact, I think most photo enthusiasts have better gear than...

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,...
