New eBook – Andes by Andrews S. Gibson

Using both film and digital capture, Gibson captures the natural and majestic beauty of places like Machu Picchu; as well as the rich culture and struggles of the Incas and their mountain lifestyle in a raw and intimate journey that is as much about photography as it is about adventure. Andrew is a gifted teacher and photographers will learn from this journey if they’re willing to join him. ANDES is about photography, but it’s wrapped in a travelogue. Like traveling beside a favorite photographer and learning as he does, what works and what does not.

When students ask me what they can do to improve their photography, first on my list, aside from making more photographs, is looking at more photographs, studying them, asking yourself why they work, or don’t. Andrew’s work is perfect for that. Don’t dismiss this as merely a picture book – like all the Print & The Process books it’s full of inspiration and instruction and, if you’re going to the Andes, some great suggestions about traveling there.

OK, New Plan. Part I

I think we can all agree that this year went a little sideways. If things had gone to plan I’d have picked Jessie up in Atlanta over a month ago, spun through the Florida Keys, lingered for three weeks, then come up the Eastern seaboard, and back into Canada. By now I’d be heading east […]

Buy The Tickets.

A door in Jodhpur, photographed on my first trip to India. Images from that trip benefited me more than the best lens I could have bought or the newest camera, never mind the experience and life-long memories themselves.   I ran across a great article this morning on the Adventure Journal. Simply the premise was, […]
