Postcards from Oaxaca
Having a fantastic time in Oaxaca, Mexico, though we didn’t get back to the hotel last night until 4am, so we all took a little longer to get moving this morning. It’s an amazing place, here. Feels very safe. The food is incredible and the spectacle of Day of the Dead is really fun, if not a little creepy at times. There’s some amazing talent here with us on this adventure; and we’re having really fun time together.
The first two postcards were both shot with an iPhone, straight out of the camera, and some great window light, the last at Casa Oaxaca with the D3s and an 85/1.4. Wish y’all were here!

The Passionate Photographer, Steve Simon
When I met Steve Simon in Hawaii last year we became fast friends. I was already familiar with, and a fan of, his work. And I knew going into his lecture called The Passionate Photographer, that this was a man I shared a lot with. And then we met, shared some meals together and my […]
Photographically Speaking, Hot Off The Press.
Last week I got a call from FedEx in Vancouver. They tried to deliver the first copies of Photographically Speaking to an address I’ve not lived in for 9 months. Sigh. Getting the first copies of a new book – I mean literally the first two copies off the press – is a thrill and […]
