Charge Your Batteries.
This is not Hawaii. Just a random beach. But, oh – the batteries that once got recharged here! I love the beach.

And maybe Kathmandu again. If you’d like to spend time with me in a small group setting working on […]
PODCAST: My Process – NYC Busker
While in New York I went out with a brand new 24/3.5 Tilt/Shift lens to see what kind of damage I could do. I’m preparing to take this lens as one of my primary lenses for the Iceland trip and wanted to start the learning curve now. I had some fun photographing this busker in […]
