I’m excited to be flying to Dallas for two upcoming events.

On Thursday from 7-9pm, I’ll be giving a lecture on how to develop a unique style of travel photography. Then on Friday from 10am - 2pm, I’ll be teaching a 4 hour post-processing master class where I’ll share my entire workflow from start to finish.

The event links are below, and if you’re in the area, it would be great to catch up!

Enchantment || San Marino

There are certain places in the world that can take your breath away and leave you speechless. In these moments, often times the only word you can manage to say is “wow,” as you experience the massive visual reward of a perfect moment in time.

For me, photography isn’t just something you see with your eyes, it’s something you also feel with your heart. And when so many things - the location, the weather, the light - all line up into a perfect harmonious moment, it’s a truly enchanting feeling, and it makes me feel blessed that part of my job is to seek out these moments and places.

This visit to San Marino was the perfect prelude to an incredible week at Photokina. And now, on my way to Los Angeles to teach during the Fujifilm Festival and I feel extremely energized after the awesome experiences of the past few weeks. A huge thanks to everyone who helped make Photokina so very special. :)

This is shot using the Fujifilm GFX 50s Mirrorless Medium Format Camera and the GF 32-64mm Lens. Being over 50 megapixels, I can’t wait to send this one to print!

The Moments Between || In Full 4K

Naomi and I have been having an awesome time at Photokina!

This year, the screen on the Fujifilm Stage has been majorly upgraded to a staggering size at full 4k. As a presenter, it’s an absolute pleasure to to be able to share my photography at this incredible resolution. It’s the first time I’ve ever been able to see my work on such a large, vivid, and incredibly sharp digital display. It’s also leaving me with a nagging question… Is this screen to big for my living room? ;)

The Moments Between || Castles in The Sky

Setting up my camera early on the castle wall, enjoying the view, and waiting for the blue hour is definitely a great way to spend an evening in San Marino. It’s quiet up here too, which is no surprise considering that this enclaved micro state surrounded by Italy is considered to be one of the least visited countries in the world. Needless to say, I certainly don’t mind having this view all to myself. My only regret is not bringing a bottle of wine. 🍷📷

The Setup: Fujifilm GFX 50s - Really Right Stuff TQC-14 Tripod.

Under a Western Sky || Arizona

There’s something special about sitting under the stars, especially when the landscape is softly illuminated by the moon, revealing colors and shapes that are typically hidden under the canopy of night. Even the busiest locations in the world can become quiet and serene as the clock creeps closer to midnight. The casual visitors depart, leaving the landscape to the stargazers, the night owls, or in my case, the overly caffeinated photographer.

I just left the Fstoppers Studio in Charleston where we wrapped up the post-processing for the next season of Photographing The World, and this was the result of a fun lesson where I shot, stitched, and edited a vertical panoramic star trail image. Hopefully we’ll have it available for download soon!

Exciting News! NASA has chosen me to be the next photographer to travel to space!! :D

Just kidding, of course. Apparently my art school degree doesn’t qualify me for the astronaut program.

On a more serious note, I had the honor of touring and photographing the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans and I was able to get a look at the the manufacturing process behind the next rockets that will carry humans into deep space exploration. Obviously, I couldn’t help but shoot a selfie next to the Orion Probe where the brave astronauts will leave earth orbit for destinations of the moon, Mars, and beyond. And as you can see, I also tried to camouflage myself with the same colors so I could attempt to stow away inside until launch. Unfortunately, they easily saw through my disguise. ;)

A huge thanks to +NASA , NASA Orion, and the NASA Social team for making this all possible.

A huge thanks to everyone for all of the kind words and birthday wishes! It really means a lot! ❤️

Naomi and I have been having an amazing time in Japan and of course no birthday would be complete without an epic sushi dinner fresh from Tsukiji Fish Market. Sometimes it’s important to put down the camera for a few moments and simply enjoy life. 😊📷🇯🇵
