Awesome Buildings in Tokyo

Lightroom Presets

I thought about re-packaging some of my presets for different kind of categories. Maybe a black & white package… a sandstorm package… I can’t actually decide because I don’t want to make it too confusing. Okay, I just talked myself out of it.

Daily Photo – Awesome Buildings in Tokyo

I don’t do a lot of single-shots of buildings, but when I’m in Tokyo I make an exception. I know nothing about architecture or how to make a cool building, but I’d like to think that if I was an architect that I could make something like this. I don’t know how these guys come up with ideas like this!

Getting Stuck in Communist Rally

Another Bus Trip?

I’ll be talking to the team soon about whether or not we’ll do another bus trip! Let me know if you’d be interested in that! :)

Daily Photo – Getting Stuck in Communist Rally

I came out of my hotel in Ho Chi Minh and was in a sea of some kind of rally. I really have no idea what was going on, but it seemed to be all 40+ women, and, well, that one dude you can see looking at me… possibly as confused as I was!

Amazing Indoor Waterfalls

Best DJs on Soundcloud?

If you have any favorites, let me know… always looking for new music! You can see who I follow here on my Soundcloud page.

Daily Photo – Amazing Indoor Waterfalls

Here’s another crazy place in Singapore that I totally didn’t expect. The outside was amazing enough, but then I decided to go inside. Amazing! And you can probably see all those little paths up there… you can just wander around and see this incredible indoor rainforest.

Finely Glaciated Mountains

Going Back to Iceland

I’ve thought about going back to Iceland here sometime next year… I love it so much there!

Daily Photo – Finely Glaciated Mountains

Up in the northwestern area of Iceland you get these tremendous shapes. It’s right on the edge of the whole country, and the feeling of the mountains is just the same. I haven’t seen a lot of mountains like this — how the glaciers have shaved away both sides so there is a steep ridge down the middle.

And if you’re wondering if that water is cold… yes, yes it is.

Curtis in the Townships of Soweto

Coming back to India!

I’m coming back to India! Where should I go??

I was thinking of taking one of those nice train trips across a part of India for about a week in January. That sounds fun! I’ll have my whole family with me… any suggestions are welcome!

I loved being in India SO MUCH last time… the people, the sights, the food, the texture of everything! I’ve done zero planning, but I’m already getting goose bumps! :)

Quadcopter Photo

We used the DJI Phantom here… and here’s one of the photos we got!

Daily Photo – Curtis in the Townships of Soweto

We had a great day here in Johannesburg. We weren’t totally sure what to expect when we went into this area, but it turned out to be absolutely amazing. Here, all the kids are around Curtis because he’s landed the quadcopter. Curtis is the one on the left in the middle, by the way.

The Textures of Venice

Forbes Travel Guide Interview

I did an interview with the Forbes Travel Guide all about the tour and more! It was a fun interview… it was actually over the telephone, and she transcribed what I said into sentences… a few little mistakes in there (like I said “Police State” instead of “Police Stage”), but you’ll get the general idea, I think! :)

Mixing Textures

This one comes from the Textures Tutorial — I did use about 7 different textures here, mixing them all together like you might remember from the video!

Daily Photo – The Textures of Venice

Getting smooth water in Venice is not super easy, because all the canals are often busy with boat traffic. For some reason, I found this one that was perfectly still, so I jumped on the opportunity!

Awesome Singapore

I want to go back and spend more time here for sure… Now that I live in New Zealand, whenever I go to Europe, it’s just as easy to stop here as it is Dubai. So I’ll see if I can make more time here next time… maybe have a photowalk or something!

Daily Photo – Ten Hours in Singapore

I connected in Singapore on the way from Vietnam back home to New Zealand, so of course I had to go out and shoot! I grabbed a taxi immediately and then headed to the hot zone down here! I haven’t been here since they added all this crazy-awesome stuff… I was taking non-stop photos. In this part, I’m way up high on this sky bridge between electric trees.

Daily Photo – Running Out on the Lake in Glenorchy

I notice that my youngest daughter Scarlett gets a little extra spunky when she wears pigtails! Here we are out on a family walk in Glenorchy through the wetlands. I highly recommend this walk if you’re in the Queenstown area!
