I know, I know. My site stats over the past couple days have reminded me how terrible I’ve been about posting over the past week. The truth is I’ve been out of my mind busy with a number of things. Not only is Vagabundo Magazine due up for another copy of goodness at the end of this month, but I’ve been away on a 10-day press assignment in Oman.
I’m a part of a group of 14 amazing photographers from around the world on an intensive photography tour of one of the Gulf’s most interesting countries. The group contains some really interesting characters including one of the world’s top landscape and nature photographers, a Nat Geo Creative Photographer, a couple award winning portrait photographers, and loads of other talented people. In this industry, it’s easy to get a bit cocky about your work. However, when you find yourself in the presence of some of these people, you can’t help but be completely humbled.
The end of the Oman in Focus tour will have us showing off some of our work at the Opera House Gallery in Muscat which will be a massive honour. I’ve not had my work shown off in that type of spotlight before, and I have to say that I’m pretty intimidated by it all. If you are in Muscat at some point in the near future, be sure to head to the Opera House and check out some of the work from the various artists, you won’t regret it.
Anyways, the trip started with a lot of portrait-style photography, so I’ll leave a couple of those images with you here. Be sure to stay tuned over the next couple days for some more images of Oman.
