As photographers, we are telling stories through photos. We have the potential to inspire others to see the world through a different perspective.
As a Westerner spending time in Asia, I am often drawn to the everyday sights around me. I don’t mean the temples and monuments or historical sites. I am drawn to the neighborhood streets and regular people who walk them.
Croatia is situated on the right side of the Adriatic sea, and unlike the opposite Italy coast, it is quite divorced and has more than 1,000 islands, and it leads the top of the list as one of the world’s most rugged coasts.
Except for the Mediterranean part of Croatia, it has a continental area, and in fact, the whole country has about 4.5 million inhabitants.
A small country with great tourist potential.
When you first arrive in Beijing, the size of the city quickly becomes evident. Beijing is one of the largest cities in the world, and it just keeps growing at an unchecked pace. The city streets are much wider than you’d imagine…
ICELAND+CUBA (14 DAYS OF DISCOVERY): Can you imagine experiencing and photographing these two polar opposite countries, back to back in 14 days time? BTW, we’ve conveniently included an overnight stay on the island of Manhattan while traveling between Iceland and Cuba. So technically that’s three islands in 14 days.
CHASING THE MILKY WAY IN THE DOLOMITES: Do you know that 80% of humans can’t see the stars anymore? Light pollution is a sad phenomenon of our present-day civilization. In Europe one has to search the mountains for clear skies, while in the United States there is still some dark places where the night sky is more visible. Allow me to show you the real night sky, and hopefully, it will inspire you to go out at night to chase the Milky Way…
EXCITING NEW ADVENTURES & UPDATES – I would like to take this time to tell you about several exciting changes we’ve made at PWA. As the Founder and CEO of Photo Workshop Adventures, Think Orange and Vanishing Cuba, I am very proud of our team and our drive to deliver the world’s best photo-centric adventure vacations. Below I’ve listed over a dozen enhanced and changed itineraries as well as several new adventures. There are even more coming very soon!
VENTURING TO CUBA FOR THE FIRST TIME. I researched many different photography focused trips to Cuba and quickly settled on Photo Workshop Adventures (PWA). PWA seemed to be very organized. Michael Chinnici was our trip leader, and he has made multiple trips to Cuba over recent years. I don’t mind finding my own way around certain destinations, but Cuba is a place where I wanted someone with experience to help me find great photo opportunities and Michael was the perfect person to do that.
VIETNAM – A DAY IN THE LIFE (A focus on Hanoi). Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi has been in existence for more then 1000 years. It hasn’t always been the capital in this once-divided country, but it has always played an important role in the region. Modern Hanoi is a bustling cosmopolitan city with beautiful historic hotels, great French-inspired cuisine, and local designer shopping boutiques. Spending a day in Hanoi requires a curious mind, good walking shoes, a hearty appetite and plenty of space on your camera memory card. Walk with me, as we spend a day in Hanoi.
GRAN HOTEL MANZANA KEMPINSKI LA HABANA. Originally built between 1894 and 1917 as the first European style shopping arcade in Cuba, Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana is situated in the heart of the old Havana with a direct view of the Capitol and the Great Theater of Havana and amidst UNESCO World Heritage sites. The famous Castillo del Morro is accessible within a 10 minute drive. Experience the first true luxury hotel in Cuba.
