I gathered up some epic fireworks photos for Resource Travel to get you all inspired to get out this ‪#‎4thOfJuly‬ weekend. I have decided to keep adding to this list, so if you have an awesome fireworks photo that you think should be included, please show me a link to the photo it in the comments!

I got a lot of great submissions already! But I should have given a couple parameters. They can't just be fireworks. I want to see a skyline, a landscape, something that shows us "where" the photo is from...in the USA. Yes, only photos from America on this round for 4th of July. But we will do a world edition for New Years!
Some awesome photographers have already made this story so far. Incredible lead image by +Tony Eckersley  of a Las Vegas fireworks show...in a lightning storm! Other photos by +Joe Azure  +Toby Harriman  +Casey McCallister and +Brian Bonham   

Let's see some more people!!! Happy 4th everyone smile emoticon

It’s that time of year again! Time to dust off the DSLR, find that missing tripod leg, and franticly google the term “How to photograph fireworks”. 4th of July means many things to Americans. Beer, Bar-B-Que, celebrating American Independence in the sun with friends and family. But...

With the Milky Way season upon us, talented astro photographer +Michael Shainblum has given us some of his favorite locations to venture out and photograph the epic night sky. After you learn his favorite places, be sure to check out his latest tutorial on how to best edit Milky Way photos in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

There is something beautiful and peaceful about witnessing the night sky outside of a city. As soon as you make the journey to escape the light pollution of the populated locations, the stars come to life and the incredible Milky Way is revealed to the naked eye. I started my journey into...

This is so cool. I loved Sydney and was super bummed out that +Tessa Kit Zawadzki and I spent most of our short time there drinking and socializing. I will have to make it back and get the camera out. Although I don't think I can create anything remotley close to this.
Italian filmaker Filippo Rivetti has lived in Sydney Australia for over 10 years, and in those years, the most populous city in Australia has gotten even bigger. Rivetti’s tilt-shift time-lapse film Tiny Sydney makes the city of 5 million feel small, yet bursting at the seams with...

Aside from Facebook, I blame 500px for most of that time categorized as Unproductive on my Rescue Time dashboard. But, yesterday I had the idea that if I share my favorite travel photos that I found on 500px in the last week of procrastination, I could change 500px to the ever elusive category of...

Great idea +Michael Bonocore! One of my favorite things to do during my "unproductive time" is to check out some of what you've been checking out on 500px anyway! So this will make it easy to see has caught your eye! 👍

My buddy +Kelly DeLay is the most famous photographer in America this week for his epic photo of a double tornado in Colorado. Kelly was kind enough to give me an exclusive video of the day's chase, including the now infamous double tornado touching down. Check it out on my latest article on +Resource Magazine 
But the real question is...double the tornado, double the flying sharks?
Thanks Kelly!

Unless you have been living under a rock, by now you have most likely seen the once in a lifetime event capture by renowned weather and environmental photographer Kelly Delay. In case you somehow missed it, below you will see the photo that has the internet abuzz. Delay captured this double tornado...

http://resourcemagonline.com/2015/06/4-simple-ways-to-improve-your-landscape-photography/53629/

+Jay Patel and +Varina Patel of Visual Wilderness have an insane deal going right now. $500 worth of tutorials from some of the best landscape photographers in the world for $49. In celebration of this awesome deal, Jay shared 4 tips to start improving your landscape photography with me. To drive the point, he shared some very old (and not very good) examples from his past, so I only thought it fair to include one of HORRIFIC photos from when I was just beginning. Brace yourself...it's bad.
Check it out in the article, and snatch up the landscape tutorial bundle before it is too late. Sale ends June 9th. Link at the bottom of the article...somewhere below my "Gilligan's Island on Acid" photo. smile emoticon
Thanks for letting me share these tips Jay!

When I started Resource Travel, this is the exact type of visual story that I had dreamed of getting out to the world. When I saw +Natalia Stone's stunning images from Ethiopia, I immediately asked her if she could give me a visual story for publishing. Boy, did she deliver. The images look like they were ripped out of an issue of +National Geographic  and the story is compelling, informative, and inspiring.

I am so proud of you Natalia. This piece is incredible. Thank you for trusting us to publish it for you.

Please give it a read and share. This one deserves it.

#Photography  #Ethiopia #Africa #Landscape  #Travel
It all started when I saw a photograph – a dark crater filled with smoke and fire with a lake of bubbling lava flowing aggressively in the foreground.The image lived in my mind day and night. I was consumed, and I knew the only way to cure my wanderlust was to see this amazing location myself....

"Travel Photography Will Change Your Life"

I am beyond excited to announce my latest passion project, Resource Travel! Obviously, my love for travel and photography consumes me day and night, so I figured why not bring others along for the ride as well? On our website www.resource.travel, we will share the world's most incredible and inspiring visual stories.

I thought I would get it started with a piece called "Travel Photography Will Change Your Life". I open up about how traveling pushed my life in the right direction, but it took a tragedy to make me realize that life is too short...and the world too big. Give it a read at http://travel.resourcemagonline.com/2015/06/travel-photography-will-change-your-life/796/

I cannot tell you how excited I am to be leading the team at Resource Travel. I really hope you will support us by subscribing to our blog and newsletter (links on the site) and following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @ResourceTravel

Also, these are YOUR stories that we want to tell. If you know of an inspiring story related to travel and visual storytelling, please let me know!

I can not thank you all enough for the support that you have given me over the years. That support has led me to achieve what I would consider to be my dream job. Thank you!

Today is the last chance to own $500 worth of video and e-book photography education for only $49. Visit http://bit.ly/InFocusDealBVS to get it before it returns to it's usual price.
I wish I had these types of tutorial packages years ago. My photography journey would have been much easier. Here is a new edit of an old image from an epic trip to Iceland with Joe Azure and Colby Brown, who has hours of post processing tutorials in this bundle!
Thanks for providing such a awesome package Jay Patel, Varina Patel and the team over at Visual Wilderness!

Story
Tagline
"If my clothes, camera and tripod aren't dirty, then I'm not trying hard enough"
Introduction

My obsession with photography began in January 2007 while searching my favorite time-killing site, Flickr. I stumbled upon a set of amazing images that were captured by an Austin, Texas-based photographer named Trey Ratcliff, otherwise known as "Stuck in Customs". Trey mastered and helped popularize a form of photography known as HDR (High Dynamic Range), which is widely practiced today by thousands of talented photographers. I was immediately drawn to the brightness, detail and overall intrigue in HDR photos. After reviewing his tutorial, I became addicted to practicing day after day, sunset after sunset. Even though I was shooting with a Canon point-and-shoot camera, I was able to produce beautiful images that further fueled my addiction. With much practice and many purchases of "real" photography equipment, I have finally found my niche in this exciting world of photography. With my photography skills maturing, I have begun to attempt to master the art of many photography forms including: weddings, portraits, events, black and white, water, and long exposure. The list is endless, and this is what intrigues me most about the art of photography. No matter how hard you practice, how many exposure you shoot, you will never be perfect. But the dream of that elusive "perfect shot" keeps us coming back for more, even though, as every photographer knows, there is no such thing.

When I am not at SmugMug with my best buddy Rocky, You can probably find me globe trotting and helping to lead photography workshops with The Giving Lens, where we as a group, combine our love of travel, our passion for photography, and our deep desire to give back to those in need. Come join us on a future adventure.

In the rare occasions that you can find me without my camera, I will most likely be at either A San Francisco Giants, or San Francisco 49er game.


I love talking photography, so if you ever have a question or just want to chat, please feel free to send me a message!
