Google Glass in Traditional Tokyo

New Google Glass?

There’s been some rumors of the enterprise edition coming out… I’m really glad they’re keeping the program alive! :)

Daily Photo – Google Glass in Traditional Tokyo

Sagoy! I was walking around during a photowalk and saw this traditionally-dressed girl. She was fascinated by the Glass, so I gave her a go… it was really fun to watch her, so took a few photos along the way!

Beautiful Clouds in Dusseldorf

The Making-Of

The creation of my large format photographs in Dusseldorf…

Daily Photo – Beautiful Clouds in Dusseldorf

This is my favorite area to shoot while in this really cool German town. This is kind of the new media center… lots of crazy architecture and strange stuff happening! Check out those crazy frog-people on the right… Oh, Germany!

Fire Dancing at the First Ever New Zealand Workshop

New Zealand Photo Workshops

Be sure to keep an eye on the Workshops page to see when one or more magically appear! :)

Daily Photo – Fire Dancing at the First Ever New Zealand Workshop

For the first one ever, we decided to get fire dancers out to my house. It was so fun! One problem is we did this on the very first night, and shooting fire dancers is a bit difficult! Now, whenever we do the big dinner at my house, it is on the last night of the event. By that point, everyone is super-duper relaxed and the parties usually get delightfully out of control!

The Only Other Visitor to the Beijing Planning Museum

From inside

Here’s a strange video I made from inside this place…

Daily Photo – The Only Other Visitor to the Beijing Planning Museum

As you can see from the video above, this is a really cool place, but no one is ever there! This is the one other visitor I saw. I think she was also surprised to see me, so we took photos of each other to mark the occasion!

Inside Hendrick’s Bar in Dubai

A big Thank You Again!

To everyone that has joined us on the photo walk thus far! It’s just been absolutely tremendous… should we do it again next year???

Daily Photo – Inside Hendrick’s Bar in Dubai

This is a pretty epic place… it was also a bit strange because I was there alone, so I was showered with attention. See all those different gins in front of me? That’s a little cart they push around that has Hendrick’s gin infused with all sorts of different things. It was like drinking at an awesome medieval apothecary!

Brave Leader of The Arcanum

As long as we’re talking about it…

…why not go fill out an application at The Arcanum? It’s awesome! :)

Daily Photo – Brave Leader of The Arcanum

Here’s a fun/funny photo I took of Pete one day when we got off the helicopter over near Wanaka. We would do tiny little hikes here and there… he was kneeling down on this mountaintop with this vast valley behind him… he looked pretty awesome I thought!

Walking to Yoga

Daily Yoga

I yoga pretty much every day now! It’s so great… really been enjoying it. The days I miss are the ones where I am just way too crazy-busy. I’m trying to keep it up while on the road but having a bit of trouble on some days!

Daily Photo – Walking to Yoga

This is the view at Aro-Ha when you are walking to yoga from the spa area. Not a bad view, eh? That lake out there is Lake Wakatipu and if you follow it around to the left, you get to Queenstown. If you go around the other way, you get to Glenorchy!

A Sunset Dip in the Pool

Working at a Resort like this

Wouldn’t this be an awesome job? Working in an environment like this? I always look at all the various jobs around a resort like this and they seem pretty awesome… there would be a few that would drive me nuts, like working in a tiny gift shop, but everything else seems pretty good!

Daily Photo – A Sunset Dip in the Pool

Here’s that amazing pool at the Four Seasons Bora Bora that I seemed to gravitate to every day. I suppose, photographically, the reflections were a bit better here than off the ocean. But I would run back and forth quite a bit between the two… you can see how close the beach is over there.

Wandering in the Lavender Fields

YouTube Stuff

I’m slowly adding more and more content over on the YouTube channel, so be sure to pop over there and check out the latest uploads! :)

Daily Photo – Wandering in the Lavender Fields

This was shot on a small lavender farm on the edge of Lake Tekapo in New Zealand. I don’t know what’s involved with growing lavender, but it kind of made me want to plant a ton of it at home. I know nothing about gardening, and this is probably obvious to all of you that found my previous statement ridiculous.

Venice Sinking into a Flood

Looking forward to seeing some of you in Venice!

Daily Photo – Venice Sinking into a Flood

Some nights the water comes up so high that the St. Mark’s square starts to flood. While unfortunate, it’s actually mega awesome for photography! Rene and I would swing by this square every single night to see if there was a flood…
