5 Places I Need to Revisit and Re-Shoot

As a travel photographer, it’s often a bit painful looking back at some of your old images. Sometimes, you just didn’t get good weather. Other times, you go a bit lazy in a certain destination and your images show that.

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.

This trip down...

A Day in Arches National Park

I knew nothing about many of the locations on our US road trip; Arches National Park was no different.  With such a high pace to our trip, we often spent the morning before entering a certain park  or destination doing last minute research hoping to find cool places to photograph.  However, for Arches National Park we didn’t actually do any research, not a bit.  I mean, the name pretty much gives the park away so we knew –...
