I’m headed to New York and Seattle to give a couple of talks about… you guessed it, photography!

Thanks to Glazer’s, B&H photo, and of course Fujifilm for making this happen.

I was really happy to be invited back to be a guest on The Traveling Image Makers podcast. 



https://blog.kenkaminesky.com/2018/04/25/lets-talk-about-safaris-and-photography/



In the first one I recorded with them, we talked about the business side of photography and in this last podcast, we had the chance to talk more about the fun side of photography. Travel, safaris, and camera gear is the topic of conversation on this second podcast.

Details and links to the podcasts are available on my latest blog post. Check out the link above!

 Thanks to Ugo Cei and Ralph Velasco for being such gracious hosts. I’m looking forward to the next time we get the chance to do this.

I just finished my plans for this year's exciting African Photo Safari in Tanzania and thought that a blog post about the awesome experience I had last year would be appropriate at this time.

This is a big post with lots of new photos that I'm just now releasing. Hope you like them!

For those of you who have long dreamed about visiting Africa and going on a Safari, all I can say is go... go soon! You'll never regret that decision. The whole experience is pure magic and will stir your soul in so many ways and for years to come.

This summer (Aug/Sept) I'll be joining several other photographers to run small four-person groups on safari in Tanzania and we wrap up the trip in exotic Zanzibar. Interested in joining us or want more details... read the post and message me. 🙂

And now, if you don't mind, I'm going to resume my regularly scheduled daydreaming of lions, elephants, leopards, giraffes, gazelles, hippos, cheetahs, rhinos, hyenas, baboons, ostriches, wildebeest, zebras...

If you're like me, you worry about all kinds of things (like your computer data) and if I've learned anything about worrying, it's that worrying is useless. Taking action about what you're concerned with is far more practical than worrying and serves as a much better use of your time.

Putting that philosophy into practice is a key to why I use this awesome software called Chronosync to backup and sync all my computer files to backup hard drives. The photos I take and other things I store on my computer are irreplaceable and I take no chances when it comes to protecting my precious data. By using this sophisticated yet easy to use software, I can rest easy that my digital files are well protected and backed up on a daily basis.

If you're concerned about your computer data and want to make sure you never have to face a catastrophic data loss, take a moment to read my review of Chronosync. Better safe than sorry!

Oh yeah, there's also a free trial available :-)

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I love to add relevant quotes to the articles I post. So, I thought it was high time that I do a post that is all about photography quotes… Here it is!

50 Awesome Inspirational Photography Quotes

Oh and since it’s all about quotes today, here’s one to go along with the photo I’m sharing today ;-)

“We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.” ― Robert Wilensky

If you travel a lot and heck, even if you don’t, you can have your personal information stolen from your computer, tablet, and phone by hackers looking to do no good. Unsecured WiFi hot spots are some of the worst culprits but your home connection isn’t necessarily any safer.

On today’s blog post I’m sharing an in-depth review of the best VPN services on the market and how they can protect you and your family from cyber attacks. Once it happens, it is too late.

Hope you enjoy the review. Stay safe online! :-)

Over the last few weeks, I have been beta testing the newest version of Photo RAW from On1 software and I’m happy to share my in depth review with you today. This is good timing since today is the day that the release version 2017.5 with a ton of new features.

http://bit.ly/On1PhotoRAW_Review

In the review, I go depth with what you can do with this powerful software but even with all the effort, I put into the review, the best way to get a good idea of what Photo RAW can do for you is try it for free. You like free, right? Yeah, me too :-)

You can also get 20% off any purchase from On1 with the coupon code: KENK20

http://bit.ly/TryOn14FREE



In the review I also share links to how to manage your preferences and to a set of very helpful video tutorials on all the new features of Photo RAW 2017.5.

Now for those of you who are Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop users like me, have no fear! Photo RAW works as a plugin within those programs and you can get the best of both worlds this way. Considering that this week Google just announced that they will no longer support the NIK software suite, this is a good time to start looking for alternatives. Of course, both these image editing software suites are not identical but there is some overlap and On1 does offer more versatility.

Hope you enjoy the review!

We've had an overwhelming response to our initial offering on our exclusive +Discovery Photo Tours VIP scouting trip to Tanzania and decided to add two more scouting tours and additional pro photographer leaders.

Details on how to apply for a spot: http://bit.ly/VIP_Safari

I'm happy to announce that my friends +Patrick Di Fruscia and +Michael Bonocore will be joining Brian Fabiano and me in Africa this September as leaders on the additional tours!

I haven't looked this forward to a trip in a very long time. Imagine being in Africa during the great migration and photographing the incredible variety of wildlife. Lions, Elephants, Rhinos, Giraffes, Leopards, Hyenas, Gazelles, Zebras, and so much more!

Join me in Tanzania this September and check off another amazing life experience from your bucket list!

Chillin on the beach in Vik, Iceland on my awesome  - +Fujifilm  adventure with Ori Guttin and Erik Bjornard from +ViewBug 

We had a crazy start to the trip yesterday as we faced gale force winds, sideways rain, sea spray that turned into snow, killer waves, zero visibility, and were sandblasted by black volcanic sand on the beach here in Vik. All in all, just another day in Iceland. ;-)

We were partially rained out today but looking forward to tomorrow's ice cave visit and our photo walk in Reykjvik on March 15.

Photo Walk details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1538152016482023/

Thanks to my good friend Dream Photo Tour leader +Patrick Di Fruscia for taking this fun shot!
