Join me in Chiang Mai for a Photography Workshop on January 11th

Interested in leveling-up your photography?

I'm back in my adapted home of Chiang Mai (Thailand) and facilitating a workshop on industry leading Adobe Photoshop Lightroom .  During this one-day workshop, I'll be going through the process of establishing an efficient workflow to speed up your time working with your images, so you can spend more time capturing them out in the world.

Unexpected, Overwhelming Hinduism - Myanmar
*A warning to my more squeamish visitors, this story includes graphic images*

The drums: pounding.  The crowd: dense.  The colors: vibrant.   

In a word,


It was after 5:00pm, and I had spent the day on nearby Bilugyun (Ogre) Island in the heat of Myanmar (Burma) summer. I was exhausted.  So exhausted in fact, that when I caught a glimpse of a line of 150-odd monks walking toward us on the other side of the road my first instinct was to just move on.

Then, something I'd never seen before.
A row of people walking on the other side of the road.  Brightly colored garland draped over-top of an apparatus some were Read More
Travel Photo Roulette Round #45: “Surreal”
We have a winner!
It was a great round!  Check out my choice for best surreal photo, and my top 5 here.

A few exhaustive travel days, and the past 3 mornings up before 5 to shoot photos meant I was in a dream state already. Early this morning, 12600 monks descended on Chiang Mai to collect alms for the flood victims in the south. An entire street was blocked off as waves of orange robes came down from one end to the other. This dreamy shot taken with a lensbaby summed up how the morning felt. Surreal. It wasn't until days later that I was able to look back at the enormity of the situation and process it for myself.
It's been a long time coming, but I hereby present you with a new round of Travel Photo Roulette once again.  I actually won the first ever round of Travel Photo Roulette, launched by Jeremy over at Living the Dream almost 2 years ago with a photo of a camel's ugly mug.  More recently, Travis from Flashpacker HQ choose my dreamy photo of monks in the street in Chiang Mai for the last contest "Once In a Lifetime"  
If you don’t know what Travel Photo Roulette is, here’s the idea:

Golden Beach
Shot on New Zealand's Bay of Plenty, this photo brings out all of what I was feeling on that warm summer eve.  Warm rays of sun glaring over the mountains in the distance.  Long shadows letting me know that with time, how much things change.  The cool ocean waves, and the endless beach.  When I was there, I was only there.
Shot on Feb 2nd, 201
