“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

Andre Gide

This website has been the focal point of my creative life since 2013, hosting hundreds of articles, thousands of photos, gear reviews, my workshops, my online courses, etc.  I am eternally grateful for the new friends I have made here, for the millions of views it has received, and for the security that it is has brought my family over the years.

It would be easy to become complacent and keep doing what I am doing, but complacency can be death to the creative mind.  Now, as we slowly emerge from COVID, I find myself craving new photographic adventures.  My friend Patrick once said:

“I longed for Istanbul. Or Madrid, Cairo, Rio. I longed for the circus, for freight trains, for a rush of uncertainty in long and aimless circumambulations; for an assault on the senses and a total loss of balance, making my way through the unknown, sinking in strange quicksand crowds with my eye to a small window.  I wanted more and everything, the pulse of an insane city or the slow crashing of a wave on a deserted beach of the pacific rim.”

This is EXACTLY where I find myself right now.  There is a “thing” inside of me that craves the unknown.  It will lie dormant for a while, but it always comes back and pushes me out the door
