My first look at Athens was Panepistimiou. Ok. My first look at Athens was seeing the Ikea store and the DHL cargo jet as I landed. But those don’t count. That could be any corner of the world at this point. Also, the part after that where I got lost on the trains… let’s not talk about that. Actually, let’s […]

So maybe I wasn’t the only one creeping around in the early morning on the rooftops of Athens. No, I did not run into a vacationing Bilal Asselah. I did however meet a pair of birds chilling on the rooftop.

My first night in an Airbnb

by / on August 26, 2015, 00:18 / in Photo Stories

I hadn’t really explored the world of Airbnb before this trip, but I think that I wouldn’t choose anything else. For one, I’m a picky eater. Not that I care about the presentation. It all gets shoved in my face. But it’s really hard to find a healthy restaurant, and the added value of someone very careful about how they […]

Jimmy Buffett’s First Look was playing in my head a lot during this trip. And my first look at the Mediterranean as we left Egypt and headed on to Greece was amazing. Humans are humans – and a lot of the human development looked the same in Egypt as it did in Dubai as it did in the US or Japan […]

I never really wondered why a lot of American guys my age referred to the parts of the Middle East that they’d seen as “The Sandbox.” From what I knew of the area, that term seemed to make sense. Flying over it, it really made sense. But it had a sort of beauty to it that surprised me. I can […]

When we got in at the end of the shoot with Yuka, I knew that I wanted at least one white-backdrop shot. I’m a sucker for those. But there was a moment, a face that she pulled, and I immediately needed to go and get a knife. So… Now that we’ve got the poster, I guess this means that we’re […]

Red means Danger

Red means Danger

by / on August 3, 2015, 10:05 / in Photo Stories

But it’s a good danger. We humans are dumb like that. There’s danger, and then there’s that thrilling, on-the-edge can-you-pull-it-off danger. Twisty mountain roads and trouble you just know you’re going to enjoy. Red is like that. It can give your camera fits. It can peak out and look terrible. It can wreck your shot. And it can make your […]
