See In A New Way.

In GEAR by David3 Comments

One of my self-generated assignments in Ladakh was simply to play. I take myself too seriously at times, so seriously, apparently, that I have to force myself to play. So I played – the way I did when I first fell in love with photography. When it was more about learning to see and being creative than it was about …

Canon 5D MkII Thoughts // Stop The Madness

In GEAR, Rants and Sermons by David31 Comments

I pre-ordered my 5D Mk2 while I was still in Nepal. I sent an email to my drug dealer camera shop of choice, which is Leo’s in Vancouver. I begged them to put me on the list. I am very excited about the 5D Mk2. Why? This upgrade to my current tools means I can better serve my clients, and …

Best New Travel Gear: iPod Touch.

In GEAR, Travel by David9 Comments

At the risk of pushing the limits on the credibility of my mantra – Gear is Good, Vision is Better – I’m about to tell you why I fell in love with the iPod again. First you should know that I don’t listen to music via those little white – or any – headphones very often. I don’t like how …

Pogo – Another chance

In GEAR, Travel by David4 Comments

I spent today wandering around the Newari town of Bhaktapur. I love this place. It’s less than an hour outside of Kathmandu and a world away. It’s quiet and has a distinctly different flavour.
