Gailen Mapes75,770Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera R - 27 of 31Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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.2015-01-29 22:28:4068000

Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #2: Photography OneThis is the first part of my "big" hand-picked photographer circles. Everybody from the Essentials circle is also in here, plus everyone I noticed in other circles, who plussed or commented on my posts or who I learned to know through other people. If you're not in there, either I haven't noticed you yet or you don't fulfil my one requirement: you have to post your own work. There are only original photography content creators in here!2014-12-30 16:41:23500000
Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #1: Photography EssentialsLike at the end of last year, I want to say thanks to all the amazing people here on Google+ by sharing a few of my circles, which is easier said than done because my own circle collection is pretty chaotic. This first one is my "small" Photography circle of people I mainly found in the beginning over two years ago, although the size of this circle has doubled in the last twelve months. These are people whose posts I don't want to miss even when I don't have time to look at all the other circles. Don't be disappointed if you're not in there - there are two much bigger photo circles coming up next!2014-12-30 16:36:31269000
Gailen Mapes74,559Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera R - 29 of 31Note: 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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.2014-12-29 11:24:110012

The Ice Towers Into the 3 AM Night Sky

I'm now out camping in Antarctica for the next 4 days.  I have about 20 batteries for my camera and more than enough food.  It's gonna be awesome.  I don't know what I'll see or experience, but I'll do my best to capture it.  Here's a photo from the beginning of my trek, while I still have power enough to connect to satellite internet through the team down here at Scott Base.   #AntarcticaNZ

To the London PhotoWalk from the Antarctica PhotoWalk !

Wow that was a fun PhotoWalk down there... we got out 100% of our camp in the snowy valleys of the mainland to walk to near a glacier!  But now, I've left there, come home to NZ to dump off photos and recharge my batteries, then heading to Hong Kong to do a show with +Kai Man Wong and +DigitalRev TV, then to Germany, then to London for the big PhotoWalk!

Join Me in London for a fun and free photowalk!

See http://www.stuckincustoms.com/2015/01/31/london-photowalk-feb-14-3-pm/ for more!

The last one we did 5 years ago in 2010 was Absolutely Amazing, and I want to do it again with y'all! I am SO Excited for this event.  It will be quite strange to come back from the remote bits of sensory-deprived Antarctica to the opposite-world of sensory-overload London!

If you've never been to a photowalk before, no worries. Come, bring a friend or your family, get a camera in everyone's hands, and yes, mobile phones and things like this are perfectly fine! :)  We'll combine this one with a really fun photo contest, and there are more details on that below.

The Deets:

– Time Start: Saturday, February 14,3 PM... more »

The Deets:

- Facebook Event Page: http://goo.gl/xOSgZk 

– Hashtag: #TRLondon2015

– Time Start: Saturday, February 14, 3 PM

– Time End: Probably around 6 PM at a pub where we can all buy drinks, hang out, etc. We can keep on taking pictures in the bar! haha :)

– Location: South Bank right outside the National Theatre (Google Map – http://goo.gl/DYx7iu and How to get to the National Theatre: http://goo.gl/v1hl5k )

– Route: A slightly different route than last time to be decided by my friend Greg Annandale

– Plan: I’ll say hello to everyone and give everyone some artistic and technical goals for the day. I’ll talk through my camera setup and discuss the whole plan for the evening. Then we’ll all walk around like a huge centipede to find our photographic muses for the day! I’ll stop 5 or so times and we’ll all congeal into a slime-mold at which point I’ll set up for a formal shot and talk about my settings, framings, what I’m trying to communicate with the shot, etc. You are ALWAYS welcome to ask me questions any time… Please don’t hesitate! :)

– Grand Prize: 5 Unlimited Shopping Sprees in the new Stuck In Customs store at http://store.stuckincustoms.com  – Everything in there that is downloadable can be yours! :) (About $3,000 in prizes)

– How to Win: Take an interesting photo of a fellow PhotoWalker (or several PhotoWalkers) and then post it to Any Social Media with the #TRLondon2015 hashtag. Be creative and try new things! Get close, get far, get low, get high (hehe), get interesting subject matter in the background, etc. Have fun with it — you can take and post and share as many photos as you like! Of course, all the time we’ll be taking photos of other things too, the amazing buildings, landscapes, bridges, and the like, but only the photos of fellow PhotoWalkers will be for the prize. I know photographers often really enjoy taking “Street Photos” of other people but sometimes can be a bit shy or afraid to ask. Well not here, you all have permission…it’s open season! :)

– How I choose the 5 winners: I’ll scan all social media about a week after the event for that #TRLondon2015 tag and choose 5 of the photos that I think are the most interesting!___

Google Glass in Antarctica

Here's Amanda, one of the team members that works at New Zealand's Scott Base. Amanda and Pip together run the whole logistics side of things, which means they work about 12 hours a day doing everything from loading up helicopter pilots, scheduling hagglund runs, and, well, 10,000 other things!

A Photography Adventure and Yoga Retreat? Oh yes!

Come join me in New Zealand at http://goo.gl/ympZ4x — we just announced this new fun workshop event here right by my home. All our other ones for 2015 are sold out at http://goo.gl/BVx14X , and I wanted to mix it up with a combo event like this! You guys know me... I'm quite zen (usually) and generally enjoy the meditative and creative side of photography. If that sounds like the sort of thing that might be up your chi-alley, then maybe we are simpatico! :)

All the detailed information is there on the page. I'll give you the basics here though.

It's at this amazing yoga retreat where I have been twice called Aro-Ha (www.aro-ha.com), which is located about 45 minutes from my home in Queenstown on the way to Glenorchy. This particular retreat will be different than the sort of thing they normally do inthat... more »

It's at this amazing yoga retreat where I have been twice called Aro-Ha (www.aro-ha.com), which is located about 45 minutes from my home in Queenstown on the way to Glenorchy. This particular retreat will be different than the sort of thing they normally do in that it is photography-centric.

Every day, we'll be waking up bright and early for a morning photowalk and hike in a new and beautiful location here in the Southern Alps. We'll come back for photo instruction and post-processing together. That post-processing party goes on for a while, only to be interrupted by daily massages (oh yes, my favorite!) and then an evening yoga class followed by more sunset photos followed by time at the spa...  wow I'm getting all excited just thinking about it all!  What a perfect day, and we'll have a bunch of them back-to-back!___

As for this photo, I combined two photos from the DJI Inspire.  Silly me, I forgot to take it out of JPG mode and put it into RAW, but it still looks pretty good I think!

As for this photo, I combined two photos from the DJI Inspire.  Silly me, I forgot to take it out of JPG mode and put it into RAW, but it still looks pretty good I think!  ___

The Sun Comes to Play after the Blizzard

We sat in our tents here in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica for 24 hours of nonstop snow. It wasn't exactly white-out conditions, but it was more than enough to delay our helicopter for another 24 hours. And I was happy for the delay, because the next morning, the sun came out in a brilliant way...

See you guys for the Live Photography Critiques later today at https://plus.google.com/events/crk01djdk3el9pvl62t7176n0ik  

As for this photo, here we are about to get on the CL-130!  See that line of people boarding?  You can tell their nationality by their Antarctic gear. The orange tops are Kiwis (New Zealand).  The red tops with black pants and big white Mickey-Mouse-boots are the Americans from the US Base.  The hot red body-man-suits are from the hot-blooded Italian men from the Italian base.  They have the best food, wine, and coffee, but that should come as no surprise.

My nightly 5K hike

Every night between 2 AM and 5 AM, I take a new hike around Antarctica. Here's one of 1,000 scenes I saw.  I honestly took 10,000+ photos, and I can hardly figure out which ones to post first... so this is just another random scene.  It's so beautiful and transfixing here!

Captain Scott's Hut at Cape Evans, Antarctica

This is the most amazing of the huts we visited.  Here, Captain Scott and his team lived and prepared to make their world's first trek to the South Pole.  Can you imagine how dejected they were when they finally arrived, only to see a Norwegian tent there? They all died on the journey back through the ice on the way home.

The Layers of White

It's very challenging shooting white on white on white!  I stayed up almost every night very late to get these kinds of shots (this was around 5 AM). The only color came from the sky, and the snow would pick up some of these soft blue tones. It's so interesting to be in a place for three weeks with no other naturally occurring colors... no greens, no reds, no yellows... a fun challenge!

The Penguin Belly-Slide

I was walking around the sea ice in Antarctica when I would see these trails all over the place.  I had no idea what they were! I was by a scientist, and he told me, "Oh! Those are the trails made by penguins when they slide on their bellies and use their flippers to turn right or left!"  AWESOME!

Exploring the Pressure Folds

The sea ice impacts this volcanic island (Ross Island) and begins to fold, bend, and create blue-green pools of water.  Right after I took this photo, a little seal stuck his head up through the water! It was so cute — but I missed the photo!  Oh well...  

Just in the distance you can see New Zealand's Scott Base.

Mount Erebus, the southernmost active volcano

There are only two active volcanoes on Antarctica, and this one is closest to the pole.  It's near to three other inactive volcanoes: Mount Terror, Mount Bird, and Mount Terra Nova. Erebus is about as high as Mount Cook and I love how it is always covered in snow.

Approaching the Ice Wall

Here's the intimidating view as I approached the front of the glacier, which loomed silent and menacing, hundreds of feet over my head.  This view you see only makes up about 2% of the face of the glacier. There were places where you could just walk close and touch it! Amazing!

And, of course, only the full-rez version is here on G+! :) Enjoy! :)

The shapes and timelessness here is just incredible... I don't think I could ever get tired of taking photos here!  This was taken after a 3 hour hike away from our base camp here in Antarctica a few nights ago.

Since G+ is the only place I can upload the full-rez version, I wanted to put it here! What an incredible place. This was recently opened again after many years of being closed off, so I feel lucky to be able to explore it.  There are many amazing and sad stories around this hut... I got many photos, and will tell them all. If you just can't wait, here is the wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discovery_Hut

Girl in Antarctica

This is one of the scientists (Clare Beet) down here that has been camping out in the deep bits of Antarctica with our group. She's working here with Ian Hogg finding and analyzing invertebrate life in the smallest places. One day it was Particularly Cold (below -15 Celsius) and the wild was blowing fiercely. I thought she looked so awesome in her full emergency clothing — I did make her take off her goggles for this photo though — I am not sure she has forgiven me yet for that!

Super Hef comes in to re-supply our camp!

We're based in a very remote valley on the mainland of Antarctica. It would take over a week to hike out of here, and you'd probably die because we're not like those tough old-timers like Shackleton and Scott.  But you know who is?  HEF!  He's a great pilot and just a total joy in the air.

On occasion, the weather has let up so Hef can swoop into camp and resupply us with food and equipment.  I can only take a few photos before the snow-wash completely covers me and I have to spin around so I don't get insta-frostbite!  (but this time, when I turned around, I leaned forward too in a fetal position and the snow-wash ran up my bare back!!  What a rookie mistake... haha.

Camping on Antarctica 

Look at that massive glacier! (It's Howard Glacier) It took almost an hour to walk from our camp over there, which we've done every day for the past four days. We just got helicoptered back to our main base here so I can get a little bit of internet! 

That's the Howard Glacier and it's one of several that are walking distance from our small camp here in the Dry Valleys. It doesn't look so dry there, does it? We got snowed and a huge storm kept the chopper away so we had to spend an extra night waiting. We finally got the radio call this morning that Hef was able to fly out to "rip us outta there." So awesome!

The Ice Towers Into the 3 AM Night Sky

I'm now out camping in Antarctica for the next 4 days.  I have about 20 batteries for my camera and more than enough food.  It's gonna be awesome.  I don't know what I'll see or experience, but I'll do my best to capture it.  Here's a photo from the beginning of my trek, while I still have power enough to connect to satellite internet through the team down here at Scott Base.   #AntarcticaNZ

Inside the CL-130

See the photo I just posted to G+ a few mins ago?  This is what it looks like inside.  I had PLENTY of time to take and process photos inside during the 10 hour flight down to Antarctica.  At the 7 hour point it got SCARY because that is the point at which we cannot turn around and return to New Zealand.  Our only option is to land somewhere on the ice.  SO AWESOME OMG!

Arrival on Antarctica

Our CL-130 landed on skis on the sea ice right by the mainland. It's barely thick enough here to hold up a plane. After we got off, Stu and I got on Ivan the Terrabus, the largest bus in the world. It's taking us to our New Zealand home here at Scott Base. Awesome dot com.

Day 1 - Survive (build a Minecraft kitchen)

I'm deep in the middle of survival-in-Antarctica training. There are two things we do on this day. Before building our ice cave, our small camp of new friends decided to work together to build a kitchen.  It's basically like Minecraft!  We got saws out and learned how to make perfect (sometimes) snow/ice cubes and then reposition them to block the wind and make a table so we can cook and enjoy dinner together.  

It's light 24 hours a day now... this photo was taken around 10 PM.

Before building our ice cave, our small camp of new friends decided to work together to build a kitchen.  It's basically like Minecraft!  We got saws out and learned how to make perfect (sometimes) snow/ice cubes and then reposition them to block the wind and make a table so we can cook and enjoy dinner together.  

It's light 24 hours a day now... this photo was taken around 10 PM.___

The Angry Smile of Antarctica as the Sea Ice Melts

Here I am on the edge of a black volcanic coastline on Antarctica, looking out at the ocean as the sea ice breaks apart in the summer.  It is SO AMAZING here.  It's light all day, and the light feeds a strange silence.  The only sound you can hear is are those penguins below, splashing and playing about with an occasional bone-shaking craaAAAaaack of the ice.  

I'm living close to here on a nearby island inside of New Zealand's Scott Base.  It's kind of like a space-station with air-tight corridors that connect everything from the air lock to the locker room to engineering to the canteen to labs and sleeping quarters — it's just incredible.  I feel so lucky to be here!  

This is an panorama HDR made of 21 different photos (so, 7 across and 3 brackets in each position).  The full-rez oneis here on... more »

What's next?  Overnight survival training and digging out an ice cave! I have my man +Stu Robertson here filming everything too. If you wanna see these videos when they come available, be sure to sign up for our free newsletter at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com/news !  ___

On board the L130 right now... The L means it has skis to land with, as we'll be landing on the ice!

This photo was taken with my android... I love doing these photo sphere things... I hope it shares okay. Check out the exposed wire and cables and stuff.

They say when we cross the 60th parallel that there is "no turning back."

Now on a US military plane, heading to a small island in the middle of Antarctica where the sea ice is just breaking apart! A 8 hour flight. So awesome... Excited!! After take off they say I can get up with the pilots like a little kid yay!! That's my friend Stu with me...

During the safety briefing for Antarctica, they said, "Do not send penguin body parts back home to family."

+Peace in 10,000 Hands​

Worries about Antarctica, Volume 1

I'm on my last night in NZ, as I leave you with this photo from the south island where I live.  Stu and I are furiously packing our bags and making sure we have the right equipment.  I'm worried about photos and he's worried about capturing our experience on video.  Either way, we are consumed by excitement and fueled by the adventure.

[what's the voice in my head saying? (that is not me; Me being the the shell around it)]  Will I be able to take any interesting photos? It's all ice and white and void and nothing, right, so how do you take good photos of it?  What if I brought the wrong lenses? What if I can't find an interesting composition? What if I return from several weeks there without a single interesting photo?

This and a thousand other worries and doubts fill my mind...  it's okay. I amcomfy... more »

This and a thousand other worries and doubts fill my mind...  it's okay. I am comfy with the fear and doubt. It kind of fuels me in a way, I guess.  I'll go down there and do my best. I have what I have... if something works out, as usual, I'll only credit the universe which I have a momentary chance to channel. Habai ite swe. :)

Farewell New Zealand, Hello Antarctica ! :)

I have a feeling I'll see no trees like this down south in the lost continent.  I'm a few hours away from boarding a US Military jet on a 7-10 hour flight to land on a little island in the middle of Antarctica to party with Antarctica New Zealand. It's gonna be incredible. I'm all packed. I have all my cameras. I have all my cozy warm clothes that I was fitted for today.  I have Stu to keep me sane in the ice caves that we dig out. 

Stu is recording all the behind-the-scenes videos that we will release as soon as it is all edited down. I think I'll have next-to-no internet down there, so you may not hear from me for a while...  It was nice knowing you. :)   #AntarcticaNZ
