Postcard From Kona


7am. Sitting on my balcony overlooking the water, a newly arrived cruise ship, and white billowing thunderheads. Gorgeous here. I’m doing final prep for today’s classes and need to be off in a few minutes. Love it here.

Apologies for not being as active in the comments as I usually am, especially in the post about the decisive moment, in which y’all seem to be getting along just fine without me. I’ll read them all when I have time, but from what I’ve seen there’s some good stirring of the paint going on. Thanks to Gavin Gough for sticking with it and moderating the conversation.

Headed out last night to shoot along the water. I’m not much for shooting landscapes, so once you’ve looked at this postcard shot I did, head over to Kah Kit Yoong’s website for some truly incredible work. Kah Kit is a colleague from the Travel Photographers Network and he’s truly talented. Dude owns more ND filters than I own camera bags.

Matt Brandon has an interview on Duniya Gol Hai (The World is Round)- read it HERE. via his blog, HERE.

Right, I’m off. Aloha and maholo.

I think the funniest thing about the article, which is not bad advice for folks wanting to up the ante with their travel snapshots, is […]

The Best Travel Tripod, Part 2

A while ago I posted a short article about “the best travel tripods.” I knew when I did it that the quest was quixotic at best, but I’ve never shied away from the impossible. I’m reckless that way. The thing is, when people google “what’s the best travel tripod” they’re asking others to find the […]

My sponsors, ZINK, the technologists behind the new pocket-sized Polaroid mobile printer dubbed “PoGo” just told me the product is about to hit the market. The Polaroid website says PoGo hits Best Buy stores (probably in USA only) on July 06, 2008, and in Target on July 20, 2008. Estimated price will be $149. I […]
