POTD: Sacré-COEUR Infrared

I’m back in Colorado after leading an incredible photo tour of London & Paris. My clients and I had so much fun photographing and exploring these cities as part of my creative travel photo workshop series. I always like to pack my infrared camera when I’m traveling, because it’s a great way to capture a popular subject in a totally unique way. To that effect, we had great skies during our morning at Montmartre, where we visited Sacré-Coeur. It was the perfect conditions for infrared photography.

Photographing the Galápagos

What to expect and what to bring for the photographic experience of a lifetime

Blue-footed boobie, Galápagos. Yes, they really do have blue feet!

I just returned from what I can only describe as the most immersive wildlife photography experience ever; a 7-night tour of the Galápagos archipelago by chartered yacht.

POTD: Orb Spinning in Brooklyn

Brooklyn Orb
LED light orb spinning at Brooklyn Bridge Park, NY

A while back I purchased a custom LED “spinner” from a guy on Instagram who makes them for photographers. It’s a fun light-painting tool once you get the hang of using it! I haven’t had too many opportunities to use it, but I knew NYC had the perfect spot! My clients all enjoyed capturing the spinning lights in front of the iconic NYC skyline at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
