Who Won the Trip to Crete???

Drum roll, anyone? I had a much harder time picking the winner of the trip to Crete than I expected.  There were lots of great entries.  But, when I posted the contest, I decided I wasn’t going to just pick the best image.  I wanted to pick someone who I thought it would really help. How Did I Pick? So, if I didn’t just pick the best image, how did I pick? I picked images that I thought “had potential”.  I...

Best Places to Photograph the Golden Gate Bridge

After a second trip to San Francisco, I feel like this list of the best places to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge is a bit more complete.  Still, there are just endless places to take pictures of the iconic view.  Honestly, I think I could spend a year photographing the Golden Gate Bridge and still not cover all the places to shoot it.  Moreover, there are places that are better for photography different types of year.  For example,...

15 Pieces of Photographic Evidence of Why You Should Come to Namibia

Namibia Photography Tour! I’m ecstatic to announce that I’ll be running a photography tour in Namibia October 2018.  And, even more exciting, this will be my first “exclusive” trip.  What does that mean? It means that there will only be 4 participants brought along.  More hands-on learning, more time shooting, and more time living the life of a travel photographer in one of the most beautiful places on the...

Mistakes (Nearly) Every Photographer Has Made

20 Mistakes Every Photographer Makes I posted a vlog over on my YouTube channel this week discussing a series of beginner photography mistakes.  But, when I was editing I realized there are dozens of other ones that I could have probably listed.  Then, I started to think that there are probably mistakes that even non-beginner photographers have made.
