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 …

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 …

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 …

Join me, and Jeffrey Chapman, in Kathmandu this November for Tihar, the Nepalese Festival of Light. We’ll be in Kathmandu for 6 days and Bhaktapur for 6 days. As many of you know, Kathmandu is one of my favourite places in the world, a place of colour and texture and life like few other places, and Bhaktapur is all that …

Leaving Venice

The sun setting over Piazza San Marco, Venice. 2012 I dragged my bags across the cobbles of Venice just after 4am yesterday morning, the wheels bumping and echoing, exaggerating the surreal emptiness of the place. Just Venice and I, which is how goodbyes should be. Around the corner a taxi waited for me, a long, sleek wooden boat, the low …

Postcard From Venice

Venice, Italy, 2012 Good morning from Venice. We’re now two days into this year’s Venice Within The Frame and it is so good to be back here. Venice is a mixed bag. People either love it or hate it. I both love it and hate it. I love the light, the architecture, the possibilities. I love the food, the wine, …
