Travel Lenses | Favorites + Suggestions


I was recently asked in a blog comment what my favorite lens is and what lens I would recommend for a traveler who needs a new lens. There really is no right or wrong answer to this question. Below I’m going to try to give you my thoughts about my favorite lens to use while traveling and what I would consider based on the style of shooting you are doing. Take it all in with a grain of salt, as these are just my favorites and the workflow I have developed over time for myself. READ MORE

The Boat in the Mist

The Boat in the Mist

A few days ago I posted the image of a anchored boat on the Edge of Lake Pichola. If you missed it I highly recommend you check it out because it was one of my top 5 favorite images from our trip. I also reflected on the power of taking a moment to yourself and enjoying the moments when you can focus in tranquility on the craft that you love.

On that same morning, just before the sun was coming over the horizon, I saw a pair of boaters paddling along the lake into the Udaipur city center. Watching them paddle in silence across the still lake felt like a moment straight out of a storybook. The air had a misty haze and the world was quiet. I loved this moment and was grateful to get to photograph the duo on there morning commute. Please enjoy.

The Colors of India

As we traveled through India one of the things that stuck out to me was the wonderful colors everywhere. The colors were rich and the bold; purples, reds, yellows, oranges, blues and greens. The colors were everywhere; scarfs, bags, buildings, signs, sarees and shirts. The people and their personalities equally colorful to match.

On the edge of Lake Pichola


One of the most enjoyable moments of my time in India was the morning on my last full day in Udaipur. I woke up early and explored the ground of our hotel making my way down to the edge of the lake. I was very pleasantly surprised to come across this boat anchored in the outlet (Photo Gods / Way to make my job easier!). The air was crisp and beginning to warm. There was a nice misty haze in the air. Time like these are quite wonderful, not only do I get make photographs but I also get to enjoy the calm beauty. The act of creating images becomes quite meditative and leaves me energized and happy. I think more people should try to take a moment either in the morning or evening to be alone in a beautiful place and focus on something you care about. It is quite rewarding.
