2019 was a mixed bag of ups and downs in my photographic world. Ups include running two successful photo tours in Nepal in the Fall (more info here if you’re interested in your own custom tour), two trips to Alaska to teach photography and photograph cruise ships for UnCruise Adventures, and getting paid to shoot drone video for a couple of productions. Downs include losing my DJI Osmo Pocket at an airport, losing my DJI Mavic 2 Pro in Alaska due to stupid mistakes and….really, that’s about it. It sucks to lose valuable camera gear, but it’s all replaceable with effort.
My photography switched gears a little this year as I backed off weddings and portraits altogether. I’ve loved shooting weddings for close to 30 years but it’s time for a break. I was also quite busy with my daughter’s graduation from high school and subsequent start at college this Fall, just before heading off to Nepal for 6 weeks of tours and a little vacation. I shot less, but I loved what I was shooting just a little bit more.
I also got back into birding and was able to spot over 70 new-to-me species in Nepal. If you do the eBird thing, you can find me here.
Now then, my favorite photos from the past year:
That’s all for this year, folks!
If you loved those Nepal photos and have your own group of fiends who would love a customized trek or cultural tour (or both!), drop me a line and check out Far Horizon Photo Tours for more information. I’d love to show you around the country!
