Bariloche is All Kinds of Beautiful

I’m a big fan of returning to places I’ve been before; especially if I wasn’t really feeling them the first time I visited them. I know, it seems backwards. Most people re-visit the places they loved. But, I’m more likely to re-visit places I didn’t feel like I gave my best attention to the first time. For one, I don’t want re-visit places I loved too often, because I don’t want my warm...

Finding Work as a Travel Photographer: ITB Round Up

I left The Philippines – quite sadly, I might add – and headed toward Berlin.  I had a conference in the city called ITB.  It’s essentially the biggest travel conference and trade fair on the planet.  It’s massive. Like, overwhelmingly massive.  And, it’s a great place to try to make contacts and for finding work as a travel photographer.  It’s also a great place to network and hang out with some...

El Nido is Next Level Beautiful

El Nido, on Palawan Island, is the place I was most excited about seeing on my Philippines trip.  I first learned of the area back when I still had my travel magazine, and an article on this “off-the-beaten-path” but “up-and-coming” destination was submitted.  Of course, these days it’s far from off the tourist trail, and instead a mainstay on the backpacker trail in The Philippines.  And, for very good...

Siquijor: Chilled Out and Adventurous

If you’ve been following along with my adventures here in The Philippines so far you’ll know that I didn’t really plan the trip out. On the way to the airport in Madrid I opened a Lonely Planet and quickly sketched a trip based on a couple cool sights I wanted to photograph.  One of those places was a waterfall on Siquijor Island.  Like all the other places I have visited on the trip so far, I knew nothing about...

Chocolate Hills and The Wonders of Bohol

I planned for 5 days on Bohol because of The Chocolate Hills.  In fact, my entire reason to coming to Bohol was for The Chocolate Hills.  But, as I did some research before arriving, I found that there were actually quite a few cool places worth shooting and exploring.  So, I set aside quite a bit of time.  In the end, I probably could have done it all in 3 or 4 days, but it was nice having the extra day at the end since I crashed my...

Epic Photo Location: The Banaue Rice Terraces

Of all the places in the Philippines, I think it was Banaue that I was most looking forward to. The images of the landscapes and rice terraces are all over the social media and marketing for The Philippines. I couldn’t wait to get my lens on them, and head out and explore them as well. But, as the jeepney I caught from Sagada rolled towards town it poured rain. At times, I’m sure the driver couldn’t see more than 10...
