I love visiting island countries. I believe it’s the allure of seeing the ocean that appeals to me. The laid back lifestyle might also be a distinguishing factor. Back in 2008 I visited Trinidad & Tobago and it started a love affair with island life. A few days ago I perused my Flickr account and […]
Dalene and Pete Heck go by a simple motto, No possessions. No plans. Just travel. As simple as that may sound on paper, there are so many things that make this creed difficult to abide by. In 2009 they sold everything they owned, packed a few essentials into their backpacks and headed for South America. […]

When I first thought up this crazy project it took me a few days to decide if I really wanted to do it. It would involve me going to the Stampede almost every day for ten days. Each of those days, instead of trying to win prizes on the midway, instead of going on thrilling […]
The brilliant guys at DigitalRevTV did an interesting experiment. They took a non-photographer and showed him the ropes for a week and put him up against a real professional photographer.
