It has been awhile since I have had the opportunity to sit down and process some new work. I just finished up my 2019 Spring in the West Virginia Highlands Workshop and now heading into the last few months before the Iceland Workshop. I have already begun the planning for 2020 and 2021 Workshops which promise to be exciting options including a return to Iceland, and a foray to Scotland and Portugal. So, stay tuned for those announcements.
It is only a month away from my 2019 West Virginia Photography Workshop, details HERE, and I managed to get away for a short one-day trip up to Canaan Valley for a meeting and the chance to scout a few locations. Spring rains often bring heavy flows to the waterfalls but not on this morning which is not the end of the world and actually allowed me to work on some different compositions. When you have photographed a place extensively it can be easy to get lazy with the compositions instead of stopping to really look at the possibilities - specifically new possibilities.
Hi everyone. I have just returned from a ten-day trip to Iceland, traveling with Colby Brown and Peyton Hale. I have quite a few images to share from this trip ranging from some of the iconic locations to architecture, and even the Icelandic Horses. A lot of this trip is still sinking in as I continue to ponder the sheer beauty of Iceland.
In the countless images I have made here this is the first time I have crawled out to this perch above the canyon to make an image. It is certainly not hard to get here but I often spend more time inside the gorge and forget to take advantage of the myriad other views. It is easy to get pulled into the short view with all of its details but sometimes getting up higher and taking the long view can achieve great results. There is probably a lesson in there somewhere.
Hi everyone. For the last few months I have been preparing for an upcoming trip to Iceland, in June, and working to hone in on the exact combination of gear to take. In anticipation of the trip I added a Sony a7RII to the kit and will be taking this along with my Fuji X-T2 and X-Pro 2 cameras. Hauling around two different camera systems is not a new concept for me, having shot Sony and Nikon at the same time, but it did present me with a lens dilemma that needed some resolution.
Hi everyone. I have had quite a busy month of October that included a shooting trip to Zion National Park which was followed by my Fall in West Virginia Workshop with my partner Martin Radigan. I am still working through a myriad of images and will get some of these up here as soon as I can. I am holding off on the Zion images as I am waiting for the publication of my new article in the upcoming edition of Fuji X Passion Magazine, Volume 2.
