I have had the chance to create images a number of times with Kaitlin Chapple, and this video is a short selection of some of the images we created.
Most tours of Iceland look at only the south coast, which is home to some spectacular waterfalls. During tours with Portfolios in a Week and I Am Iceland, the amazing east coast of Iceland is a favourite spot. The great landscapes with fjords and highlands make for some unique views. The tour in the summer of 2017 even included rare summer aurora borealis.
One of the highlights of an annual trip to Argentina is the chance to watch the Gauchos on the Tecka Ranch round up and brand the cattle. The gauchos are joined by their children who are on summer break from school, and they all seem to enjoy the work. The process they use seems hardly changed by modern methods.
In a trip filled with highlights, a flight over the Vatnajökull glacier was incredible. The flight went from the north coast near Akureyri, south over the glacier with a stop for lunch against near an ice face, then on to the south shore and over Jokalsaron and on to Hofn.

This is an incredibly rugged country, with amazing vistas that abound, and wildlife that could be found literally around any corner.
While on our Portfolios in a week tour with IAmIceland, the iPhone 6 was a important part of my toolkit. First, I tried to use it in most locations to take a photo in order get a GPS location for geotagging. Second, it was a great tool for panoramas, which were amazing for capturing Iceland's amazing vistas. And finally, the use of the slo-mo video for its waterfalls, geysers and other natural phenomena gave a whole new insight.
Here is a video that is made up exclusively of iPhone images and video.
In a photo tour we organized through PortfoliosInAWeek.com with some great people, and came back with some great shots.

The trip included both photography and fly fishing, and was an introduction to an amazing country.
A trip of a lifetime to Argentina with a group of wonderful friends produced a few great photos. These video try to capture the feelings of the trip.
I got the chance to do a presentation on Argentina, in particular Patigonia for World Views of Photography which included a few videos that I would like to share here. A special thanks to my fishing friends, along with the guides and others that make these trips so amazing.
A trip that was mostly for fly fishing offered a significant chance to see this beautiful country, and capture some of its beauty. The landscapes, nature, people and the weather are all amazing.
