Whenever I travel for work, I always ask myself if taking the tripod along is really worth it. On this short trip to Shanghai, I was very glad I did. Shooting long-exposures of the Bund from the Pudong side was a blast!
There’s no denying that occasionally a photo is more down to luck than design. That’s particularly true of concert shots: sudden changes in lighting can make a picture totally unexpected. Such was the case with this shot of slide guitar wizard Derek Trucks. It looks like studio lighting, but believe me it was on stage!
I’ve been experimenting a bit with macro shots of fiber-optic lamps and this one was the first one I really liked. I’ll be posting more as this is an ongoing series.

This is one of the first shots I did that I was really pleased with. It was shot in Saint-Jean Pied de Port in the Basque Country and features their main export: espadrilles! It’s now available on my store and you can order prints from anywhere in the world just by clicking on the links below the photo.
