Drink And Click™ SF541Wow, you know you are having an awesome month of special guests when you need not one, but TWO Drink and Clicks to fit them all in! I have just received word that +Elia Locardi and his wife  +Naomi Locardi  from http://www.blamethemonkey.com/, AND +Brian Matiash  will BOTH be in town this week! Now this is a trifecta of awesomeness! So to celebrate, we will be taking them out in one of the most fun and diverse sections of San Francisco...North Beach! Chinatown, Portsmouth Square Plaza, Washington Square, St. Peter's and Pauls Church....the shooting possibilities are endless. It also doesn't hurt that this neighborhood has plenty of great bars and cafes to socialize in. I will work on a updated itinerary this weekend. But this much I know. We are meeting at Vesuvio Cafe at  255 Columbus at 5:00PM. PLEASE BRING CASH IF YOU ARE GOING TO ORDER A DRINK! We will be there until a little after 6:15, when we will take off and walk the streets to get the great light. Afterwards, who knows...more drinking and of course more clicking!  So come on SF Bay Area Photogs. Let's welcome +Brian Matiash +Elia Locardi and +Naomi Locardi to SF! (BTW, this is the FIRST time the Locardis have been to SF, so let's get a great big turnout and show them how we do it.) Thanks +Chris Chabot for the awesome cover photo!  Event Organized By +Robyn Chau +Tony Eckersley and +Michael Bonocore  #DrinkAndClickSF   #Photography  Drink And Click SF - Blame The Monkey And #BMash Edition2013-03-27 17:00:0068

Gailen Mapes85,424Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera J-L - 14 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-04-14 10:44:12173000

Gailen Mapes83,662Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera J-L - 14 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-14 13:41:06177002

The Harmony of Japan || 大和の魂

The feeling of the cool fresh air as the cherry blossoms gently sway in the soft morning breeze. The beauty of the Sakura in full bloom as they cradle the pagoda and perfectly compliment the red hues with their subtle warmth. The stunning view of Mount Fuji through a clear and yet nicely textured sky. These words only begin to describe the emotional impact that standing in the location has on my soul.

The stunning view of Mount Fuji through a clear and yet nicely textured sky. These words only begin to describe the emotional impact that standing in the location has on my soul.

For the past six months I’ve had a wonderful time flying my DJI Phantom Quadcopter and now I’m excited to share the results! 

Here’s an in-depth review of the new Phantom 3 Professional based on my experience flying and shooting in Italy through Rome, Florence, Tuscany, and Cinque Terre. I also share the story of how I learned to fly and how my perspective on the world has completely changed after seeing it from the air in beautiful 4k resolution. 

As usual, if you’re not in the reading mood, there are plenty of colorful photos and videos to view as well!

The Moments Between || Beautiful Cinque Terre

Well, now that I've seen Le Cinque Terre for the air, I can officially confirm that it's absolutely stunning from every angle. It really is one of the most beautiful places on the planet with its harmonious blend of both classic architecture and dramatic landscape. Flying my DJI Phantom 3 here over the past two days has been a truly awesome experience.

Cinque Terre will always have a special place in my heart as it was one of the first places I visited years ago when I was aggressively building my photography portfolio. Since then, I've visited many times and I don't think I'll ever get tired of photographing these extraordinary views. It's also such a pleasure to bring people here on our Italy Photo Tour and get to see their smiling faces as they see these villages for the first time.

The Moments Between || Tuscany From Above

With all of the time I've spent in Tuscany, I was already convinced that it's likely one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Now, I can honestly say that seeing this magnificent landscape from the perspective of my DJI Phantom 3 has solidified that belief into an absolute fact. What a special treat it has been to experience this place both on my feet and in the air. It's just like falling in love all over again.

I can't wait to share some of the results soon. :)

The Moments Between || Epic Tuscan Sunrise

Even though I've visited this location many times, yesterday's sunrise was one of the best I've ever seen. The quality of light combined with the different layers of fog caused a spectacular display of stunning colors and textures that lasted well into the morning hours. Of course this already wonderful morning was made even more special by all of the smiling faces from the awesome group of people that have joined us on this years Italy Dram Photo Tour.

The Moments Between || Piloting Rome

I must admit that the location choice for my first +DJI Phantom 3 flight was a slightly ambitious one. While The Roman Forum looks magnificent from above, the authorities here are probably not too keen on personal drone flights, but to my surprise, no one around seemed to mind or give me any hassle.

The seagulls on the other hand, were not happy about the flying intruder and quickly started swarming and diving aggressively at the P3. I wasn't so much concerned for the drone's safety but more so the well being of the birds. Even a brief contact with a prop could've easily caused an injury and I'd hate for that to happen. It was a good lesson on not only taking extra care to respect the cultural site but also the place that these birds call home.

The Moments Between || The Phantom Configuration

What do 3 cameras, 8 lenses, and a new +DJI Phantom 3 Pro with full accessories all have in common? Well, aside from all fitting perfectly into the new +Think Tank Photo Airport Helipak, they’re also going to make this year’s Italy Photo Tour a lot of fun! 

Seriously, I’m not only impressed that this bag transports all of my gear perfectly, there’s also quite a bit of room to spare. This is great because prior to this new configuration, I was carrying around the Phantom 2 in the pelican case (on the left) and hiking even a few short kilometers with that combined with a full camera backpack was taxing on the body to say the least. Sure, the peli case offers solid protection with the props attached but in my opinion, removing one bag entirely is always a good idea when you’re working in the field.

On our Italy Photo Tour this year, +Naomi Locardi and I will actually be shooting with both the P2 and the P3 since we have already have them both with us. She’s also kind enough to help me carry everything. :)

The Moments Between || Singaporean Views

From Japan to China to Singapore, it’s been an incredible (and insanely) busy two months that have been filled with epic views, awesome presentations, and great meetings with good friends and colleagues, both old and new. It has been a whirlwind of events and it’s such a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with so many awesome and talented people! 

Though Singapore was mostly about prepping for future projects and getting ready for our Italy Dream Photo Tour next week, I did manage to shoot an awesome new perspective, and wow, what a view! With the super high plexiglass wall, It was also the perfect shooting location for my +Really Right Stuff Safari clamp and +Fujifilm X-T1.

The Old City of Mostar || Herzegovina

Sometimes when I visit certain places in the world, I’m completely surprised just how quickly they can capture my heart. Mostar in Herzegovina is the perfect example because while I knew that Stari Most (the old bridge) would be an excellent subject to photograph, I had no idea how much I’d fall in love with the charming old city. 

From the moment we arrived and throughout the entire time we were there, we had a wonderful experience getting to know the local people and learn about their rich and historic culture. Mostar is definitely somewhere I plan to spend more time in the future.

The Moments Between || Phantom 3 Fun

After wrapping up a few awesome and very busy speaking events in Beijing, it was nice to relax in Shenzhen for a few days, while enjoying time with good friends, and making some great new contacts.

While I was in town, I had the pleasure of flying the new Phantom 3 at DJI Headquarters in their official testing area. After being such a huge fan of the Phantom 2, it’s unbelievable how many improvements they’ve made with the new Phantom 3. Where the P2 was already easy to fly, the precession responsiveness and extra power of the new P3 is out of this world. I think this little guy is going to be a huge game changer and I’m eagerly counting down the days until they ship in May.

Once again it’s time to say goodbye to beautiful Japan. Each time I leave it’s with a heavy heart, as I can’t help but feel a special connection to this wonderful country. Whether I’m photographing a beautiful location, or just sitting in a quiet shrine, I always feel at peace and in many ways, at home. And for someone  who hasn’t had a home for more than 3 years, that’s a feeling that truly means a lot to me.  

Thank you Japan for a wonderful Sakura season. I’m already looking forward to the next one!

Vermillion Tide - 朱色の潮流 || Japan

When I first started researching photography spots in Japan a few years ago, I had a feeling that the Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima had the potential of being spectacular, but I had no idea how amazing it could be at the peak of low tide. During the mid - high tide, the Grand Torii Gate is designed to seem as though it’s floating on top of the water, which is a wondrous sight - and I recently posted a photo a few weeks ago that reflected that spectacle of golden reflected sunlight. 

When the tide goes out, so do the crowds of people as they enjoy the opportunity to walk through the giant beautiful gate and enjoy the view at ground level. Now after experiencing it both ways, I have to admit that I’m a bit torn on which way I like to photograph it the most. I guess that just means I’ll need to visit again sometime soon to be sure.:

We’ve had a wonderful few weeks in Japan, but in two days, it’s once again time to say goodbye and continue our perpetual location independent adventure. Next stop, Beijing and Shenzhen, where I’ve been invited to speak at a series of prestigious photography events. It’ll also be the first time that one of my talks will be translated live into Chinese. Wish me luck! :D

The Moments Between || Himeji Castle Flight

After years of restoration, the recently re-opened Himeji Castle is a masterpiece of beautiful Japanese History. Not only does it look amazing from all around the castle grounds, it also looks unbelievable from the air, especially in the soft golden light of the afternoon. 

Using my +DJI Phantom 2 and +GoPro 4 Black, I was able to capture some stunning high resolution aerial footage. I can honestly say that flying drones for video is quickly becoming one of my favorite activities. :)

The feeling of the cool fresh air as the cherry blossoms gently sway in the soft morning breeze. The beauty of the Sakura in full bloom as they cradle the pagoda and perfectly compliment the red hues with their subtle warmth. The stunning view of Mount Fuji through a clear and yet nicely textured sky. These words only begin to describe the emotional impact that standing in the location has on my soul.

There’s nothing better than spending a morning all alone in the Sagano Bamboo Forest near Kyoto, listening to the soft rustling sounds of tall stalks and leaves as the sway gently in the breeze. On a clear morning, the light shines brilliantly though the tangle of beautiful green, making the forest seem as though it’s illuminated from within. It’s a truly extraordinary place to be.

The Moments Between || Osaka Castle Sakura

There's just something special about the Sakura season in Japan that keeps us visiting again and again. It's not just because the cherry blossoms are beautiful, it's also because everyone in Japan is in such a great mood when the trees are in bloom. You can feel the cheer in the air as so many people gaze at the flowers with huge smiles on their faces, while couples hold hands and families have picnics underneath the beautiful flowery canopies. It's a wonderful thing to experience.

I was delighted to have an afternoon to shoot Osaka Castle and this time I found a great spot where two different species of cherry blossoms surrounded the castle in a beautiful composition.

The Moments Between || Japan + Fujifilm = Awesome

Of course no trip to Japan would be complete without adding some exciting new Fujifilm gear to the family!

With so many back-to-back projects, the past four months have flown by and I've been waiting for the opportune time to make some fun new upgrades. Thankfully, with about 10 days worth of rain in the coming weather forecast, the timing couldn't be more perfect. Having a 100% water sealed graphite X-T1, 16-55, and 50-140 is going to come in really handy while I continue to chase the sakura and scout locations for next year's photo tour. :)

I've been shooting with everything you see here for a solid few days now so if anyone has any questions, feel free to shoot them my way.

Having a 100% water sealed graphite X-T1, 16-55, and 50-140 is going to come in really handy while I continue to chase the sakura and scout locations for next year's photo tour. :)

I've been shooting with everything you see here for a solid few days now so if anyone has any questions, feel free to shoot them my way.

Floating on Light || Itsukushima

It’s almost surreal to think that this is the third year in a row that Naomi and I have spent spring in Japan. It’s our favorite time to be here and though there are countless cherry blossom trees blooming all around us, there are also plenty of places to visit that remain timelessly beautiful no matter what season it happens to be. The Itsukushima Shrine definitely tops that list and at high tide, the Grand Torii Gate is designed to seem as though it’s floating on the water. For photography, this is one of my favorite sunset spots in all of Japan. 

The sun itself is very important in Japan’s history as the Japanese name for Japan, Nippon (or Nihon), literally means “the sun’s origin.” This is also commonly translated into “the Land of the Rising Sun,” which we’re all more commonly familiar with in the west.

Interestingly enough, this nomenclature also has to do with the Chinese Sui Dynasty by referring to Japan’s eastern position relative to China. I know that this is a photo of a sunset, but with the sun correlation, I thought it was close enough to warrant the history lesson. ;)

On another (more exciting) note, we’ll soon be announcing the full details of our Dream Photo Tour to Japan next April which will focus on exploring ancient castles, fascinating landscapes, serene shrines, iconic pagodas, and of course some of the most beautiful cherry blossom viewing areas on the planet. Like all of our tours, local food and historic culture will play a huge role and each meal we plan will be nothing short of epic. :)

We’re currently accepting pre-registration here: http://bit.ly/DreamJapan

The Moments Between || Kurashiki

I’ve been having a great time visiting some new spots in Japan over the past week, including the old town area of Kurashiki. With the classic architecture and beautiful canals spanned by stone bridges, I thought it would be the perfect place to shoot panoramic images with my Fujifilm X-T1 and test out some new prototype gear from +Really Right Stuff. 

You’ll likely see this new pano gear become available in a few months and it’s designed to be an ultra light weight and portable solution for shooting seamless multi-row panoramic images. Thought I’ve also tested it thoroughly with a Pro DSLR (to which it performs very well), with its compact size, it’s more perfectly suited for all types of mirrorless bodies and lenses since they have a smaller over all profile. For the past few weeks, it’s been the perfect compliment to my FujifilmX-T1, 10-24 ... more »

It’s cool to know that no matter where I happen to be in the world, the awesome team at +B and H can always get me the gear I need for a project. In this case, with a short 48 hour stopover in Sydney, they coordinated a shipment to meet me there, and I was able to grab a new DJI Phantom 2 before heading to China, Japan, and Italy for two solid months of scouting, workshops, and photo tours. This is going to be fun! 

If you’re curious, here’s the exact Phantom Kit I’ll be using along with a +GoPro Hero 4 black.

Test of Time || Petra, Jordan 

There are places in the world where photography will always pale in comparison to the simple act of being there in person, and experiencing the moment with all of the magic it contains. And though I try to capture the feeling of these moments to the best of my abilities, I know that at best, I’ll only be able to spark a small portion of a true emotional response. My hope is that it’s enough to inspire people to visit these places, and experience it for themselves. 

I also believe that seeing beautiful destinations for the first time is a once in a lifetime experience that can only be matched by seeing it again through someone else’s eyes. That’s one of the reasons I love leading Photography Tours because it’s a way for me to relive some of the same sense of awe and inspiration that flooded my senses on my very first visit.

Even better is the fact that I get to share these places with so many great people from all walks of life and help them get the best out of their photography there. 

I couldn’t be happier to announce that Ken Kaminesky and I will be leading a Dream Photo Tour to Jordan this November. We invite you to take a step back in time with us as we visit the ancient lost city of Petra and the Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash, float on the Dead Sea, ride a camel with local Bedouin people in the vast desert of Wadi Rum, and discover ancient culture that dates back millennia.

After 29 days in New Zealand and 80 days on the road with the +Fstoppers, it's 2:30am here and as I post this, I'm also packing up to leave on a 5:30am flight. 

If you’ve been following me on social media over the past few months, you’ve probably noticed lots of behind the scenes images about this massive project we’ve been working on together that is set to be the most comprehensive educational landscape, cityscape, and astrophotography video tutorial available on the market. And as I write these words, It feels surreal to think that after so much work together, we’ve managed to capture everything we needed in each worldwide location. All that’s left is another visit to Charleston where we’ll wrap up the interviews, voice overs, and most importantly, the extensive post-processing demonstrations where I’ll be covering every trick and advanced technique I use to craft myimagery.

Beyond Kotor Bay || Montenegro

With so much going on over the last few months and so many projects on my plate, Its been tricky to find the time to process new shots for my photography portfolio. As a result, this shot of Kotor has been put on my post-processing back burner ever since we visited Montenegro early last October. 

Kotor is an outstanding place for photography especially when you hike to a few of the views above the old city. I’m happy to finally get around to editing it since it’s also a good chance for me to add some more locational diversity to my portfolio since I tend to focus so much on personal favorites like — in case you hadn’t noticed — Italy. ;)

Thought the article, I also talk about why I think each location is so spectacular for photography, but if you don’t feel like reading, no worries. Feel free to just browse through the pretty pictures. :)

Reflections of Bled || Slovenia 

On my Instagram Profile, I say that I’m "seeking out the most beautiful destinations in the universe,” and I love to romanticize the thought that someday that statement may come true and I’ll somehow be able to explore and photograph more than just planet Earth. For now though—and granted that I only have a localized earthing perspective on this—I really feel like there’s no end of wonderful things to experience, and fascinating subjects to photograph here. 

Out of many Earthly locations, Lake Bled in Slovenia had been topping my list for quite some time, so with a few extra days between massive projects last November, Naomi and I decided to make it happen. Unfortunately, we missed the first snow fall but on the plus side, we were still able to catch the tail end of the fall colors.

The Moments Between || Mt Cook

After hiking 8 kilometers into the Hooker Valley, the sunset view of Mt. Cook was absolutely spectacular. Once we had our cameras were in place, we pitched our tents and prepared for an epic night of shooting the starry sky. It was by far one of the best experiences of our entire time here in New Zealand.

The Moments Between || The Lone Tree

After visiting this spot a few times over the past few years, I'm totally convinced that it I was planted just for photographers. ;)

Seriously though, it's a really great spot for sunrise photography and the perfect scene to do some long exposures with my Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.

Last time the lake bed was dry so I'm really excited to share some new versions soon!

The Moments Between || The Ambitious Journey

I know that I’ve been much less active on social media than usual lately. The Fstoppers and I are still in New Zealand and almost done with the 2.5 months of filming our very ambitious education video series about photography. We’re very proud of what we’re working on and the entire journey has been an amazing experience. 

For the next few weeks we’ll be driving around the South Island and exploring some of the my favorite places in Middle Earth. Just bear with me a bit longer as I remain a little slower than usual to respond to all of the emails, comments, and messages. :)

The Moments Between || Back in New Zealand! 

Yesterday, the Fstoppers and I kicked off a new shooting adventure in New Zealand! Over the next 26 days, we’ll be cruising many designations on the South Island to wrap up principal production on our upcoming Landscape Photography Tutorial Video. As you can see, just two days into the trip and we already got some epic light at Punakaiki on the west coast. Not too shabby for our first real day of filming. :)

We’ve been shooting in 6 different countries over the past few months, working on an upcoming educational series. If all goes according to plan, the first video should be available early this summer. For early access and a sweet discount, get more information and sign up here:

The Moments Between || Appreciating Cambodia 

http://bit.ly/DreamCambodia

It’s always bittersweet saying goodbye to Cambodia and with all the great footage we got, this visit was certainly no exception. There’s just something incredible about being here, standing in the early morning light among these beautiful and ancient relics. The stories that grace the carvings upon the walls, whispering of a magic from the far and distant past that make for a truly unique experience.  

Cambodia inspires me to want to give something back, to leave it  maybe just a little bit better, a humble offering for all the inspiration it has given to me over the years. That’s why it’s a wonderful feeling to know that I’ll be returning again this December to lead my third photo tour here, and to have a chance to share the magic of this place with others.

That’s why it’s a wonderful feeling to know that I’ll be returning again this December to lead my third photo tour here, and to have a chance to share the magic of this place with others.

This all-inclusive philanthropic photo tour will be a mix of exploring the ancient temples of the Angkor complex, visiting the floating villages of the Tonle Sap and spending time working with the kids of local non-profit Journeys Within Our Community (JWOC) and helping them to improve their photography skills. JWOC works to promote economic, educational and improved health opportunities through access to basic services such as clean water, micro-finance, education and community liaison programs. These sustainable programs also build capacity and increase self-reliance, helping struggling communities to face daily challenges and better their own future. I’m also excited to say that a large portion of our proceeds from this tour will go straight to JWOC to support their on-going programs. :)

It’s hard to express just how proud I am to see all this hard work come to life.

Some of the temples in Angkor Wat are over a thousand years old but it's only in recent history that they've been excavated and protected by Unesco.

When the archeologists first came here, they removed as many trees as possible to reveal and save the temples. It's amazing to think that the trees that have become so iconic and popular are only there because removing them would destroy the temple underneath.  

Shot with: +Fujifilm X-M1 - 28mm - f/3.2 - ISO 400 -  1/240

The Moments Between || Hong Kong Rush

Even though I love landscape photography with a passion, urban cityscapes are sometimes my favorite subjects to photograph, especially when I'm in such a densely populated city environment like downtown Hong Kong. When the night lights come on here, the city comes alive and there are countless little details to photograph.

Shot with: Fujifilm X-T1 - 12mm - f/22 - ISO 200 - 30 Seconds.

The Moments Between || Hong Kong Haze

Even though it’s super hazy out tonight, I can’t help but be amazed by the extraordinary view from Victoria Peak. The immense urban sprawl of the HK skyline impresses me each and every time I see it. 

As far as photography goes, it’s way too hazy to compose a good shot tonight which means we’ll definitely need to have a few more early morning tries to get it right. Personally, I don’t mind getting up early for stuff like this but +Patrick Hall and +Lee Morris on the other hand, well let’s just say they’re definitely not big fans of 4:30AM wake up calls. ;)

Shot (handheld) - Fujifilm X-E2 - 17mm - f/4 - ISO 1250 - 1/13th

The Moments Between || Hong Kong Density 

Our fist day shooting in Hong Kong has wrapped up nicely with a awesome upwards perspective on some very colorful and densely populated apartment buildings not too far from downtown. Once it gets dark out and the apartment lights come on, it’s fascinating how much color, texture, and detail there is to capture. I wonder if the people who live here know just how cool this place looks though the lens. 

We were also able to score some awesome DJI Phantom Drone footage before the building manager politely asked us to leave. ;)

Shot (handheld) - Fujifilm X-M1 - 14mm - f/2.8 - ISO 3200 - 1/10th

Singapore Meetup || February 2015

A huge thanks to my friends in Singapore both new and old who helped make our visit a truly memorable experience! We had a wonderful time hanging out with all of you last night and we really appreciate the awesome conversations and great company. 

Singapore has always been one of my favorite places in the world and that’s not just because of the city, it’s because of all the awesome people that live here. Thank you for making us feel so at home! :D

The Moments Between || Vertigo

When I asked Naomi if I could borrow her Fujifilm X-E2 for a shoot last night, I made sure not to mention that I’d be hanging it out of the 42nd floor window of a tower in downtown Singapore. ;)
