ITALY WITHIN THE FRAME 2013

In Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David3 Comments

Join Jeffrey Chapman and me for our favourite Within The Frame Photographic Adventures. From April 20-27 we’ll be in Liguria, starting in Genoa, to spend time in Cinque Terre and Camogli – coastal northern Italy at it’s best. Small fishing villages, beautiful twilight and morning hours, late dinners with brilliant food and wine. Teaching happens organically, through discussions as a …

Gobi Impressions II

Gobi Impressions, Triptych II. Mongolia, 2012. Yesterday I posted the first of these, all taken with my big-boy camera, the Nikon D3s. These three I shot with my iPhone while driving, using an app called Slow Shutter, which for I think $0.99 has given me more fun and creative pleasure than all my other apps, or expensive dSLR gear put …

Gobi Impressions

Gobi Impressions, Triptych. Mongolia, 2012. A triptych made of images shot during my recent time in the Gobi desert. Handheld at low shutter speeds, I moved the camera back and forth to create a series of impressions. My friend Wendy does a lot of work like this and the art she creates continually blows me away and often creates in …

August Desktop Wallpaper

The White Stupa sand cliffs, Mongolia, 2012 Last month’s desktop wallpaper was a little late, so I thought I’d give you a little time to enjoy it before throwing something new at you. I know, takes a lot of nerve to call 3 weeks “a little late” but then if I’d never posted it, 3 weeks late would have been …

Mongolia Snapshots

In Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David16 Comments

The ubiquitous UAZ, the Russian 4×4 vans you see everywhere in Mongolia. I want one of these so bad I can almost taste it. A few more snapshots from the Hasselblad in Mongolia: Self portrait. Mongolia, 2012. I walked past this thing (below) several times before I really saw it, stopped dead in my tracks and said, or thought, something …

Mongolia Films – First Peek

In Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David17 Comments

A few quick uploads of some of my images from Mongolia. I picked these up at the lab this morning. I shot these one morning on the Gobi well before breakfast in some of the most delicious morning light I’ve seen in ages. I wrestled with my Hasselbad and a roll of Fujichrome 100, though I’m not offhand sure exactly …

Come with me to Africa

In News & Stuff, Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David7 Comments

One of the highlights of my year is my return to Africa. Last year we began with Orthodox Christmas in Lalibela, Ethiopia, and then the Maasai Mara in Kenya. Two back to back trips that were simply unbelievable. This year we’re doing it again, this coming January, and we’re inviting two small groups of people to come with us. The …

Mongolia Re-Capped

In Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David20 Comments

Gobi Desert, Mongolia, 2012 There were 15 of us, including drivers, our translator & guide, and the photographers who joined Jeffrey Chapman and I on this month’s Mongolia Within The Frame Adventure. Together, over 10 days, we drove 2200km, almost all of them off-road on punishing trails, through the green steppes of Mongolia and into the dry, hot, Gobi Desert …

The Singing Dunes, Mongolia, 2012 A little later than usual but I’ve given myself a little more freedom now since there’s no calendar on these things. Hope it’s worth the wait. An hour after I shot this, the photographer in this image walked up to me and apologized, telling me he thought he owed me a beer for getting into …

Postcard From Mongolia

In Postcards From..., Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David22 Comments

Gobi Desert, Mongolia, 2012. A quick hello from Ulaan Bator, Mongolia. We’ve just come in out of the dust and heat after 8 days off-road in the Gobi Desert. What an adventure! We spent time photographing sand dunes and horse races, the so-called White Stupa cliffs, and miles and miles of desert, horses, goats, and Mongolians. We’ve slept in some …
