This past Saturday I had the distinct pleasure of speaking at the Grandfather Mountain Nature Photography Weekend near Blowing Rock, NC.

What an engaging group of folks we had. It was really fun to show a few of my images and talk about the process to capture them and even a little bit about processing. There isn't a better way to celebrate my birthday weekend than on Grandfather Mountain.

Big shoutout to +Michael Shainblum for letting me show his timelapse video Into the Atmosphere to kick off the discussion. Check out that inspirational work over at https://vimeo.com/81616727

Here is one of the star trails that I displayed. It is so much fun to see star trails develop in front of your eyes on the screen.
I put together a list of all the topics discussed last night and some links to key resources. If you are interested head over to http://coastalinsight.com/photographing-the-stars-grandfat…/

It's only the beginning of summer and yet it feels like the dog days already. At times like this I like to hop in the creek and cool off. :)

How are you staying cool?

Happy Wednesday everybody.
I hope you had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend and got time to cherish your loved ones and celebrate our armed forces. I had a great weekend and am getting ready to head into the hills for a spell.
Enjoy this Smoky Sunset!

"Bathed in Light"
Lincove Viaduct along the Blue Ridge Parkway 

This is one of our favorite spots on the Blue Ridge Parkway or BRP for short. The morning light streams across the valley and lights up all the ridges as it winds its way across the escarpment driving away the dark.
Up on top of Rough Ridge you get the best view and it's only a short but fairly steep hike up from the Parkway.  This was from last fall during our Fall Workshop and our guests were treated to a phenomenal sunrise. Signups are underway for this years event and in addition we have a Fall Waterfalls Workshop available.

Check out the details at http://mountainstoseaworkshops.com/package/fall-on-the-brp/

Do you prefer mountain vistas or waterfalls?

Can't wait to get back into the Smokies!
 
Spring is in the air, and we can't wait to hit spots like this.

This is deep in the Smoky Mountains
Iridescence
“Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss. But every once in a while you find someone who’s iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare.” That's how I like to think of spots like this. Something about it makes it incomparable. There was some excellent light at this spot and we worked up and down the river for other compositions but nothing was quite like this spot.

Story
Tagline
Adventurer, Landscape Photographer and Educator
Introduction
I am an award winning fine art photographer and educator based in Charleston, South Carolina. I was born in Cape Town South Africa, and developed a love for both the ocean and the mountains at a young age. My thirst for adventure started early hiking and exploring Table Mountain and surfing the many beaches. Capturing and remembering this incredible world has always been my passion.

If you want to follow along with my adventures head over to my website and subscribe to the monthly newsletter.

Together with Tommy White I teach landscape photography through Mountains To Sea Workshops. Mountains to Sea Workshops is dedicated to providing the highest quality photography instruction and is designed for the outdoor landscape and nature photographer, from those just starting out to those that have been shooting for years.  Stop on by to see where we are headed next.
