Photography Gear Review: The EyeFi Wifi SD Memory Cards

It’s a bit of a tongue twister, the EyeFi Wifi SD Memory Cards.  But unlike a tongue twister the EyeFi cards were built not to tangle things, but to keep you untangled.  Essentially, what this card does is create a WiFi signal from your camera which you can pick up with your mobile device allowing you to view, edit, and share the images you’re shooting out in the field directly with your friends without needing a WiFi...

A Guide to Travel Photography in London

You all might know that London isn’t exactly my favourite city from a travel standpoint.  I think it’s a bit overrated.  But from a travel photography standpoint, the city is absolutely fantastic.  Around every corner there seems to be something special to photograph.  In fact, as much as I might find London a tad bit dull, there are only a couple cities in all of Europe that come close to hanging when it comes to the...

On Location Travel Photography in Central Mongolia

Man, Mongolia was exactly what I expected it to be.  How often does that happen?  So many times before I’ve gone to countries expecting them to be a certain way and to have my perception completely flipped on its head.  Not Mongolia, it was as advertised – tough, rural, and 100% stunning.  Since we only had limited time to tour Mongolia, though, we were kind of short of being able to do and see all the things we wanted to....

On Location in Southern Mongolia and the Gobi Desert

After taking in Naadam in Ulaanbaatar, our immediate goal was to get out of town. Sure, we loved Ulaanbaatar on arrival. It provided us with so many things we just couldn’t get during our 2 months in China; or our 7 months in Asia all together for that matter. The Mongolian capital is loaded with western restaurants catering to tourists and expats, there are a couple Irish pubs, and there’s unblocked wifi, what else could...

The Enduring Virtues of Southeast Asia: Luang Prabang

Not long after Southeast Asia was sold as the ultimate, exotic adventure, it began to be derided as trashy and tourist-saturated. Those who have travelled further along the road – or at least been on the road for longer – sneer at the 18 year olds finding their spiritual self in Phi Phi, drinking mushroom shakes on Koh Phangan, and slurping milk fresh from the coconut while traipsing about the Killing Fields in Phnom Penh.
