TGL Thailand

I'm currently in Thailand with +The Giving Lens, leading a team (alongside +Michael Bonocore) of some fabulous photographers as we explore the Chiang Mai region.

So far we've spent some time in the city photographing temples and markets. Today we begin work with COSA, an organization that provides a safe, full-time environment for girls who are victims of or at-risk of being exploited in human trafficking. This is my second time on this trip and I am so happy to have the opportunity to return. :)

If you'd like to learn more about this organization, please go to their website here:

I have a personal rule I follow when I travel, especially when I’m in Asia: I get an early start. Sure, I have my moments when I need to sleep in, but it’s just after sunrise when things are at their best. So this morning I woke up just before sunrise,…

If you have traveled to anywhere considered “touristy”, then you probably already understand the woes of being a photographer who has too many people in the scene they want to photograph. Even if it’s just one person in your way, by the time that person…

Sometimes I feel like I am a photo-hoarder. I travel, create photographs, and then they just sit and collect virtual dust in my Lightroom catalog. It’s sort of like the old saying: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make…

It was so great of this guy to pose for me while I photographed him with two different cameras. I interrupted him while he was washing his motor-bike, totally did a double-take when I saw the tattoos on his back and used my iPhone to translate my request. I even gave him the ‪#‎nicolesygram‬ print from my instant camera as thanks. So happy to be back in Thailand.

Powerful Waves in Hawaii

This is one of my favorite spots during my recent trip to Hawaii. The waves were crashing in here so forcefully, it was quite a sight. :)

Be sure to check out the @ThomasCookUK photo contest, over $7k prizes! I'm one of the judges, too. — http://bit.ly/ETENicole
