Namibia Untamed
Northern Lights Finale – With Arild Heitmann

Processing Instruction via Skype

Sort of a weird comp here, I’ll admit. I for sure didn’t knock this one out of the park, but I was trying to include the little swirl on the left side. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t… I’m too dumb to figure it out! Got some pretty sweet light though, which is good because I’m a half-wit and easily excited over things like colors in the sky and swirly things in the water. I think most people who know me well will agree that I should be wearing a helmet most of the time.

Got some big tours with really cool dudes who don’t wear helmets coming up next year. Marcel Van Oosten was kind enough to honor me with the privilege to lead a tour to Namibia for him next year… I’m guaranteeing it will be epic. Also my good friend Arild Heitmann and I will be leading another crazy tour next March to shoot the Lofoten Islands… it’s always a successful trip.

Wharariki Drift at Nelson, New Zealand by PatrickMarsonOng

A huge playground for photographers. Take your pick from waves, tide-pools, reflections or sand dunes. There’s even a cave not far from here where you can perfectly frame the sea stacks.

I opted for that classic wave shot, hope you like it! Cheers guys!

Standing Guard by northwestcapture

Went on a backpacking trip out on the Washington Coast with close friends. I didn’t intend for it to be a photography trip, but I did bring the camera along just in case. I’m glad I did since we were treated to a gorgeous sunset.

Post Processing Video Tutorials


This photo is dedicated to Jeff Swanson. An incredible, loving and generous photographer who passed away about a year ago of Melanoma. If you are interested in raising awareness or supporting the fight against Melanoma please check the links below.

This year, partially due to avoiding the unusually hot weather in the Pacific Northwest as well as too much forest fire smoke, I had the great privilege of spending about 2 straight months on the Pacific Coastline from the top of the Olympic Coastline down through the sublime Oregon Coast and the Northern California Coast.

Here on 2 separate attempts, I scrambled and climbed down a cliffy area about 500 feet to the beach and at the lowest tide got out on a sea-stack rock to get stranded all night. I played guitar and took 15 minute naps amid the violent waves all around me. One of the funnest times I have had taking a photo. 🙂

As always Alex Noriega has been my main go to guy for processing feedback, as well as who I refer people to when I am not able to teach Post Processing via Skype, because of my rigerous travel schedule.

OLYMPIC IN FLAMES by Light_pilgrim

PLEASE view on black.

This is the re-edited version of the image that I have posted earlier. As with any form of art, your perception of it is changing and you grow in understanding of some small details that make a difference.

Artistically, I wanted to focus on 3-dimentionality of the image and I wanted to use all tools available: composition, colours, light and shadows, etc.

The final outcome is highlighting a flaming sunset and a very interesting form of clouds that are bending over the sea stack.

Photography is my hobby, I do not do it commercially, but it doesn’t mean I do not do it with all my heart:-)

Last Sunshine by TheWanderingSoul

Such a wonderful beach with hidden paths along the coastline and a nice village, too. I really enjoyed to stay there a few days, doing most of the time nothing but reading and sitting on the top of some rocks. =)

Between Sun and Sea by Pcoskun

During my two week trip. Beautiful sunset or sunrise light was difficult to come by. This was to be expected as is typical with the coast in the Pacific Northwest. However, the only night I spent on beautiful Bandon Beach provided just a little bit of that nice golden light photographers seem to seek. I had wanted to visit this location for years despite it’s popularity, but once you visit it’s easy to see why. Some of the most beautiful seastacks along the Oregon coast that offer up plenty of compositions for photographers. I had a few images in mind from this place, but the tide wasn’t just right for what I had envisioned. I wanted to work with some water motion and took a series of images hoping I could get some interesting patterns for my foreground. I settled on this image from the evening as the sun was setting behind this jagged spire. Thanks for looking!
