Hard at work behind the scenes.

Being a photographer is a dirty unglamorous job. You only see the shiny finished product, but you don’t see 90% of the photos that hit the cutting room floor. You don’t see the blood shed to get that beautiful moment. The scars. Well, here’s a look behind the veil, into the world of hard-working photographer Ben Torode.

Beach Interlude.

We ducked back to the coast for some food, and for a look back at the ocean before the rains came in. Somehow we got ridiculously lucky on this trip. There was one day of rain, and we only drove through it. It was raining in Lefkada while we were in Preveza. The rain caught up to us as we […]

Look at that guy! No loyalty!

Yup. I’ve got no loyalty. At least not to companies that sell me gear. I’ve got plenty of loyalty to hand out to friends; to awesome guys like Andy Yee, who took this photo. We met working the 2015 Awa Odori in Koenji. It’s an amazing festival, and something that is very much outside of the norm of life in […]

Ok… dawn was a bit ambitious for us. Day of the Dead, at any rate. Once we got up and driving, we were fine, but dawn just came too soon. WE drove up north to see the doorway to the underworld, Necromanteion. While there are some questions as to the veracity of the archaeological find, Imma go with it because […]

A trip up to Preveza

by / on November 18, 2015, 19:13 / in Photo Stories

Our apre-Athens adventures were mostly on the island of Lefkada, but we did take a drive up to Preveza to check out some ancient ruins. Which, as it turned out, included this ancient ruin of a car. I suspect it was a bit newer than the nearby ruined buildings, but not by much. The surrounding landscape,  however, was beautiful.

I trekked into the wilderness with my brave companion to discover rare, wild beasts. If, by “trek” you mean “drove a rental car to an awesome house,” “brave companion” you mean, “City-bred Canadian betraying her nation by quaking in fear of small bugs,” and by “discover rare, wild beasts,” you mean, “take photos of the jackalope-looking moths that were everywhere […]
