  • Tripods, photo storage, clothing, gear bags, traveling, oh my!

    When traveling with the goal of coming home with lots of awesome photos, how much gear to take, and how to pack it, become paramount issues. Here's some tips on how to balance the load, and the decisions.

  • The long and winding road to Shimla

    OK, so I need a new compact travel tripod, and I mean compact, and it's gotta be able to hold at least a Canon 5D Mark II and a 24-70 f/2.8 lens, and ideally my 1Ds Mark II and the same lens. Did I mention that I want the whole thing to fold down to 16 inches or so?


  • We interrupt this blog for a two-day road trip

     Went on a great road trip to south-central Washington to photograph the landscape and a wind-generation facility. There are plenty of new photos from the trip on my site in the commercial architecture and panorama galleries. Please check them out -- feedback is welcome.
