We are back from a photo tour/workshop aboard a yacht cruise in Croatia. What an amazing country! We sailed from Split to Dubrovnik aboard a 40-passenger yacht, and had lots of amazing photo ops along the way. We’ll discuss the trip, what we brought, and what photographic experiences we discovered.

I’m heading to meet my photo tour group in Split, Croatia! We’ll be boarding a 40-passenger luxury yacht on Saturday and spending the next 7 nights touring and photographing the Dalmatian coast. Our tour concludes in the ancient city of Dubrovnik. I’m very excited to meet my clients and help them discover creative travel photography techniques.
Why the iPhone is my go-to backup camera for creative travel photography
I’ve owned an Apple iPhone since the original was released in 2007. Back then, the quality of camera phones was still rudimentary, and I didn’t consider using it for creative photography. Thirteen years later, my iPhone is a critical part of my photography kit and iPhone photography is here to stay. In fact, I often refer to my phone as my “backup camera.” Last fall, I upgraded to the iPhone 11 Pro, and I have to say that it offers an incredible array of built-in features that are just amazing. Whether you have the newest iPhone or an earlier model, here are some of my go-to tips for iPhone photography.
