I am thrilled to say that we set our plans into motion for the next Rajasthan Photo Trek (workshop). We have run this workshop for two years now and have been given high marks from all our participants. If you want to make photos in one of the most exotic places on earth with the most colorful dress and exciting locations then Rajasthan is your choice. Join me and photographer and author Piet Van den Eynde as we travel for two weeks across the Indian state of Rajasthan, the Land of Kings. Continue reading →
Last year after the Rajasthan Photo Trek, Piet Van den Eynde and I decided to take a few minutes to talk about our experience with the X-series cameras in the field. Piet is a brand ambassador for Fujifilm Belgium, an Adobe Lightroom Guru and an e-book author with Craft & Vision. More importantly he is my co-leader of the Digital Trekker Photo Treks. Last year after our first Photo Trek together Piet and I thought it might be fun to do a podcast about the Fujifilm X-Series gear we used. You can listen to that conversation HERE. That podcast turned out to be one of my most listened to podcasts and quite a few people had asked for a sequel… So, always eager to provide the content that people want, we though it might be fun to do this again… sort of a part two. This year, after the Photo Trek was officially over Piet and I huddled under a blanket together – no really it was the only way to deaden the sound in our cheap concrete day-rooms – and recorded this podcast. We talk about the latest gear and how we have been using the X-system since our last podcast. I hope you enjoy this conversation. Continue reading →

Yes, it has been a while. My family and I went to the US for two and a half months to visit family, friends, check out universities and start a new non-profit. So while not a vacation, it did keep me away from posting almost anything here on the blog as well as on Twitter and Facebook. But, I am back and have a lot to share with you. With that said, I am not in a position to go into much detail about the new non-profit as of yet.
The Rajasthan Photo Trek 2013 is officially over and officially a resounding success! Not only did the participants have fun, staying at fairy tail locations, eating fine Indian food and laughing till our sides split, their talent and skill level also increase as they were given assignments each day to shoot. Here are a few more images from our participants. I can’t express to you how proud I am of each of them. Remember these are all hobbyist photographers with the exception of our guest instructor Piet Van den Eynde. Continue reading →
