London Brilliant!

We had an marvelous day in London with our Passion in a Click presentation! Such a great group of folks with some really great questions. It would seem even with my funny California accent, I was understood. It was a great day then at the end, the door of the conference opened and I see this familiar smiley face peak in. Then, it slipped back out and was gone. I couldn’t finish up fast enough because I knew what that meant. Glen and Dave are dear and crazy friends we originally meet at Photoshop World.

Three hours later we left the pub with side sore from laughing and the place barely intact! As you can see, the pub was unique to start...

I just wanted to make you aware of it, I’ll let you do the...

The Boys of the Bush!

The key to success for the majority of photography is knowing your subject. Something taught to us when we’re real young when it comes to writing, it totally applies to photography, especially wildlife photography. The open African woodland habitat that is Mala Mala is not your stereotypical African savannah you conjure up in your mind when picturing the bush. While I had been studying my mammal and bird ID books prior to going over, I was ill prepared for what we encountered. Besides the overwhelming sensory overload of critters ~everywhere~ you look, there is the challenge of making the photo that is more than a memory of that amazing moment. Step in the Rangers, the Boys of the Bush. Roan, 27 and Greg, 24, grew up in this African environment of the “bush” and it shows. On top of this, they have spent their time in school, Greg with his degree in Zoology and Masters in Wildlife Mngmt. But what really makes these two rangers unique, at least to...
