WITHIN THE FRAME Signed Edition

In Within The Frame by David14 Comments

I’ve had too many questions about this to ignore it any longer. Many of you have asked about signed copies. I still think that’s just plain goofy. But that could be the self-loathing talking 🙂 If you’re in Vancouver and take me for coffee, I’ll happily sign your copy in person. But for those of you further away, the whole …

Weekend Wrap-Up

In Freelance and Business, News & Stuff, Within The Frame by David7 Comments

Wow, what a week. Ok, first, be sure to keep reading today, there’s a post under this one welcoming a new sponsor. Other than that, a few things to go into the long weekend with. I’m taking Monday off, so this has got to last you. Yesterday was the soft-launch of my book, pictured left. My publisher, Peachpit, has released …

WTF! IS HERE! (Almost)

In Within The Frame by David67 Comments

A year ago this thing was little more than a crazy “what if…?” that I couldn’t shake from my brain. Now it’s on the home stretch to being 260-something printed pages. A book. The book goes to the printer on Friday, so those of you who pre-ordered, the end is in sight. And by “in sight” I mean it’s still …

Like PB & J

In Within The Frame by David14 Comments

I had to laugh and share this with you. I logged on to Amazon.com to get the link for my book when I found this: It’s Joe McNally’s latest book, The Hotshoe Diaries, paired with my book, Within The Frame. And you can get both for $52.78. I’m one of the few on the planet who have read both of …

In Travel, Within The Frame by David34 Comments

As many of you know I’m in the final stages of writing my book, Within The Frame, The Journey of Photographic Vision. One of things we’re planning on is a downloadable bonus chapter that deals specifically with issues, tips, tricks related to the traveling photographer. So, here’s where you can be helpful to me, if you’re willing. 1. What kind …

Ha Noi

In Travel, Within The Frame by David4 Comments

Of all the places we visited in January, Ha Noi was perhaps the one the least connected with me. I had a great time there, but visually it failed to connect with me the way I had hoped and that was a disappointment. But it’s not you, Ha Noi, it’s me. I came in with expectations I don’t think I …

Bangkok

In Travel, Within The Frame by David3 Comments

Bangkok was more of a layover than a destination on this trip; a place to meet up with colleagues and take a breather. We shot the local vegetable market, the Grand Palace, and assorted streets and alleys. But mostly we talked, and ate, so this one’s a short one. Best Hostel I’ve Stayed In. We stayed at the Lub-d Hostel …

Kathmandu

In Travel, Within The Frame by David8 Comments

Ah, Kathmandu. For some reason it just feels like coming home to me. A noisy, chaotic, disfunctional home, but home all the same. I’ve spent more time in Kathmandu than any other Asian city, and I really like it. We were in Kathmandu this time for only 5 days, and it was fantastic. I’ve been there in June, in October, …

Cairo

In Travel, Within The Frame by David6 Comments

If there was one city on this trip that intimidated the heck out of me it was Cairo. Huge. Smoggy. Dusty. Noisy. Did I mention huge? Overwhelmingly so. Tried to bite off way more than I can chew, spread myself too thin. It took 3 days and I finally gave-up and did what I should have done in the first …

Almost. Home.

In Travel, Within The Frame by David10 Comments

After what will be almost 30,000 miles flown, I am very. nearly. home. Lying in the most comfortable bed in the world at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental in San Francisco watching the sun rise, anticipating the first decent cup of coffee in a month, and meeting my publishing team for sushi this evening, I’ve had a jet-lagged 4 hours to …
