Traveling by air with your camera gear.

All photographers know the feeling, sitting at baggage claim, counting the cases as they come around the carousel.  Watching with nervousness that all the required cases come out one by one.  It was back in 2008 when I was standing by just a carousel and as I watched as my Pelican 1600 camera case plopped down on the moving belt, and it hit me like a bolt of lightning! read more

Travel Stories Empty Planes

I learned something years ago while on my way to Portugal to catch a ship while on a connecting flight in Germany.  Always find your gate and sit there, don’t go roaming around…cuz things change and we being humans lose track of time!  So I put that bit of travel savvy information to use while in Atlanta en route to Rochester.  We were scheduled for a shoot in a small town the next day.  This was not an ordinary architectural shoot there were $15k worth of models showing up for a tight shoot schedule so we HAD to be there ON TIME!

THE HIGH COST OF THE “CHEAPER ECONOMY”

AS I WAS WRITING MY LAST BLOG POST, A TOPIC THAT I RAN INTO WHILE WORKING IN COLOMBIA FOR THE ELASTIC MIND PROJECT ELASTICMINDPROJECT.ORG WHICH I CO-FOUNDED WITH FANIA CASTRO KEPT COMING UP (AND FOR ALL MY COLOMBIAN FRIENDS who ARE MANY, I AM NOT PICKING ON COLOMBIA…THIS HAPPENS IN MANY PLACES).  THAT ISSUE WAS, AS THE TITLE NOTES, THE HIGH COST OF THE CHEAPER ECONOMY.  SO IN KEEPING WITH THE ECONOMIC STRAIN OF THE LAST POST I THOUGHT I WOULD CONTINUE ON,  DELVE A BIT DEEPER INTO HOW THIS CONCEPT EFFECTS PHOTOGRAPHERS AND FRANKLY ALL BUSINESS OWNERS. read more
