A photography blog with a difference: Instead of a strict focus on photo how-to, gear and the like, I pass on knowledge about the places and people pictured. That means tips and recommendations from an experienced adventure traveler. It also means learning about the geology, nature, wildlife and cultural history of the photo destinations, all from a long-time teacher & earth scientist. And since I am a working photographer as well, I'll pass on ways you can successfully capture the atmosphere of a place or the essence of a person or animal. But you won't find an endless blow-by-blow on how I got each shot, nor cheerleading gear talk either. I promise to leave that to other blogs, of which there are many.
