As photographers, we are telling stories through photos. We have the potential to inspire others to see the world through a different perspective.
One of the most challenging, yet fascinating genres of photography is street photography. Read photographer Laurie Cohen’s advice on the Think Orange blog.
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!
ALGILA ORTIGIA CHARME HOTEL – Our preferred hotel in Syracuse on our Sicily Photo Adventure, and the one we love the most is the Algilà Ortigia Charme Hotel on Ortigia Island in Syracuse, Sicily. There is something very special about the Algilà. We stay at hundreds of hotels around the world on our photo adventures, and Algilà is right up there with some of the best. Perhaps it’s the European elegance, charm and wonderful location, combined with the level of comfort often found in bed & breakfasts.
PHOTOGRAPHING MODERNIST BARCELONA – Anyone that knows me knows that apart from my love of photography, there is nothing I love more than a bit of nostalgia. With this in mind, I thought it a good idea to write a few lines about combining two of my favorite subjects – Photography and the Modernist movement. More importantly however, is how to create interesting images by using your own creativity and artistic vision, instead of just capturing postcard type shots. Having lived in Barcelona for 15 years, my appreciation of Modernist works has only increased, and it is the Catalan form of Modernism in particular that I find so photogenic.
