The last of our Italy Within The Frame team is now leaving in their different directions home and I’ve got a day off before beginning 4 full days of shooting my personal project here. Our last evening began with my friend Marco Ryan and I in a gondola with tripods and cameras and gelled speedlights (and you thought I had …

Hi from Venice. We arrived here Saturday afternoon to hard light, pressing crowds of tourists, and endless kiosks selling kitsch. As always my own expectations and the reality of the place collided.

A quick hello from Italy. We arrived this morning to Camogli and will be based here for the next three nights. Last night we spent the evening shooting at Vernazza – if you’ve seen a photograph of the Cinque Terre it’s likely the port town of Vernazza you’ve seen. Then we had a late dinner with too much wine and …
