Going Home

This is by far one of my favorite photographs. Can anyone guess where it was taken?

Lovely shot by +Mike Taylor
 
On The Edge Of Reality

This image is a composite of the foreground shot and 185 frames of the sky. These photos were taken with different cameras/lenses at different locations about a year apart. I stacked the frames of a Milky Way time lapse to make a standard star trails image and then masked in a single frame of the Milky Way using a blending method that I've been working on for a while.

Catching up on some uploads to 500px!

It’s cold and rainy where I am right now so I thought a warm sunrise on the beach would be an appropriate choice. :)

The City Of Lights || Paris

From the top of Montparnasse Tower, the sky above Paris explodes with vivid color and light… 

I often say that there are certain places in the world that have the power to take my breath away. On my first visit to Paris last fall, the city exceeded all of my expectations and left me with a strong desire for more. I would even go as far to say that the city of lights could quite possibly be the best city in the world for travel photography. I know that's high praise but from my perspective, with the wealth of possibilities for strong and beautiful compositions and the diversity of subject matter, it could definitely be true. 

This was shot in August 2013 from the top of Montparnasse Tower on a very hazy and grey day. With less than favorable conditions, I wasn’t expecting much for sunset but when this sky appeared out of the grey, I was completely caught off guard. Within minutes, the viewing platform was flooded with a mob of excited spectators.

The Moments Between || Beautiful Mt. Fuji

What could be better than shooting Mt. Fuji floating on full blooming cherry blossoms during a beautiful sunrise? How about getting to spend that time in good company with +Naomi Locardi and +Yuga Kurita

After a groggy 2:30AM wake up call, we made our way up to this beautiful location to enjoy the view. Armed with a half dozen cans of boss coffee, we watched the light reveal a lovely scene before us. That’s 1 morning down and 3 more to go as we wait for the cherry blossoms to reach their 100% peak. 

Wish us luck, and coffee, definitely lots of coffee! :D

Introduction

I’m a professional travel photographer, writer, public speaker, and educator who spends his life seeking out and capturing some of the most beautiful and inspiring destinations in the world. Location independent since March of 2012, my wife and I live a 100% mobile (global nomadic) lifestyle, perpetually traveling from country to country, continuously circling the globe. Since I began traveling full-time in 2009, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting more than 45 countries while flying well over one million miles.

Throughout this perpetual journey, I enjoy teaching the art of photography on my website www.blamethemonkey.com, while sharing my images and stories across various social media outlets. I also collaborate with many different sponsors, brands, and tourism boards, and lead Photography Tours and Post-processing Workshops worldwide. Feel free to drop me a line anytime and if I happen to be in a town near you, I’m always up for a good conversation and coffee.

Follow me on Instagram to keep up on my latest locations and projects. I’m also extremely active on Social Media with daily posts and consistent engagement on Facebook, Twitter, and of course Google+.
