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:

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

I'm so thrilled to be headed to Iceland for the sixth time and stoked to be partnering with my friends at +Fujifilm North America  and +ViewBug - Photo Contests  on this exciting expedition and fun photo walk.

Looking very forward to meeting some new friends in one of my favourite places on Earth!

This was just one of the special moments on last year's Jordan photo tour. We always go to a beautiful eco-lodge in the middle of the Dana Nature Reserve and have a chance to connect with the local Bedouin people and the stunning natural environment.

On this day, the group was blessed with a stunning sky at sunset and while the moment only lasted a few minutes, we were able to capture some wonderful memories.

That's what I love about photography, it's a mix of art, timing, planning, luck, talent, and hard work that all lead up to magical moments like this.

One of the best things about being a Fujifilm Global Ambassador is that I get a chance to work with some of the best new camera technology that is being developed today. The X-Pro2 that was just announced last week was accompanied by several other major announcements like this new 100mm-400mm that we've all been waiting for for some time. It's finally here and just in time!

I'm heading to Namibia next month and this bad boy should serve me quite nicely when it comes to photographing animals and some very unique nature and landscape scenes. The lens is a 35mm equivalent of a 152-609mm, has 5-stop image stabilization and is very well suited for handholding and tripod use. This lens is probably the most weather sealed lens in the Fujifilm Cameras lineup and when paired with the optional XF1.4X TC WR teleconverter, the lens turns into a 35mm-equivalent 213-853mm... WOW

What a great way to start 2016. I can't wait to see what Fujifilm has in store for us the rest of this year.

One of my favourite things to do is to revisit special places and see them in a new way. This March, I'll be heading back to Iceland with +Patrick Di Fruscia  to run an epic Winter Iceland Photo Tour for Dream Photo Tours.

Time to rediscover the beauty of Iceland during their winter wonderland season where we'll get to experience the magic of the Aurora Borealis, explore beautiful ice caves, discover frozen waterfalls, and photograph all kinds of stunning landscapes dusted with snow.

We are closing registration soon for this tour and we'd love to have you join us. :-)

After spending the last couple of weeks in the sub-tropical weather of Cambodia, it was a bit of a shock to be greeted by the cold December weather of home here in Canada.

The cold weather reminded me of the fact that I'll be heading to one of the coolest places on Earth this winter… Iceland!

This will be an exciting time for me and everyone joining us for the Winter Iceland Dream Photo Tour. While Iceland is spectacular at any time of year, the winter season offers the opportunities to explore and photograph many of the iconic Iceland locations blanketed in snow and covered in ice. We also photograph ice caves and have ample opportunities to capture the aurora borealis during one of the best times of year to do so.

I never fail to be mesmerized by the unique and diverse landscapes in Iceland. If you have not been yet, all I can say is… What are you waiting for? :-)

Tour Length: 11 Days - March 1st – 11th, 2016

Check out the finalists:

I was amazed to get over 15,000 entries in this Inspiring Places photo contest, where we gave away a fantastic prize of a Fujifilm X-T1 camera kit valued at $1,500.00 USD.

As the only judge in this contest, the pressure was on me to come up with a worthy winner and I think I succeeded. What do you think?

Hey Photographers!

The all new software suite for photographers "Photo 10" from ON1, Inc. is now available. The great news is they offer a fully functioning 60-day trial, so you really have nothing to lose by giving it a try.

I just downloaded my copy and will be reviewing the software later this year, once I'm done with my next trips to Jordan and Cambodia. 

Each time On1 release a new version of their suite, there are multiple improvements and new features. In this latest version there are too many updates, tweaks, and new features to mention, so I'm glad that they made a video detailing all of what's new in Photo 10. 

What's New in Photo 10:

Happy editing!
