I have 2 spots open on my Kauai Photo Adventure in February (just a few months away). Tuition is all-inclusive so the only other thing you need to buy is a plane ticket. We'll be staying in a big house with a private chef and a local guide. We'll photograph the island by sea (via a sunset cruise along the Na Pali coast), air (from a doors-off helicopter tour) and of course land. We'll also go snorkeling, take a kayaking trip up the Wailua River to hidden waterfalls, hike the NaPali coast and so much more. This workshop is going to be incredible!

If you'd like to know more (including the full itinerary), head on over to the workshop page. Thanks!

Laupahoehoe Point | Big Island, Hawaii

I had to visit this place 5 times on 3 separate trips to the BI to finally get some incredible light to work with. It was raining the entire morning, but the sun was able to break through on the horizon at sunrise for a few minutes of magic.

Anyone still on G+? Just realized it's been over 6 months since my last post. Crazy. Here's a shot from Queen's Bath in Kauai from back in April. Can't wait to back, hopefully next year!

My new ebook "Sunset & Beyond" is now available!

It's here! It's finally here! I'm beyond thrilled to announce that my newest ebook, Sunset & Beyond, is now available for purchase in the JamesB Shop for just $10!

I've been working on the ebook for nearly two years and having it finally available to the world is a great feeling. I've poured my heart and soul into the ebook and I truly believe there's something in this ebook for everyone. Here are just a few of the topics covered...

>The different phases of twilight (sunset, civil twilight, nautical twilight, astro twilight) and how to approach each one.
>How to predict incredible sunsets by studying the weather and cloud movements. 
>How to photograph the night sky.
>How to find where the Milky Way (or any constellation) will be and how to plan accordingly. 
>How to light paint the right way (years of trial, error and fine tuning went into this). 
>The best apps for your smart phones and tablets to make all of this as easy as possible. 
>Much more
