NYC & Photo Plus Expo

I’m in New York City! Woot! I’ll be here for 10 days.

What brings me here is Photo Plus Expo. Ever hear of it? It’s the largest photography conference and expo in North America. Yep, she’s a big’un.

Even more specifically, I’m here to speak as part of the Fuji-X Photographer team. Exciting!

By the way, I believe Fuji is printing this image for the show… and I suspect it may be fairly big. I haven’t been over to the Javits Center yet to see everything, so we’ll see! You know I’ll share that with you. We do, after all, have that ongoing conversation about the Fujis and large prints. Will they or won’t they? (I suspect they will, just fine.) 😀

The Tutoko River Bridge

On the way to Milford Sound, you pass over a bridge spanning the Tutoko River. The views both up and down the river here are amazing! It’s actually a bridge-over-a-bridge… you can see the white railing of the old one over to the right of this photo. What was funny about taking pictures from there was that you had to stand on the old bridge. And it moved. Every. Time. Someone. Walked on it. With 20 of us, it became this ballet of… “STOP! annnnnnd hold that position. Wait for it… click-click-click (etc.)… Ok now you can move!” Rinse and repeat. It was pretty funny. But we all got our shots in a most cooperative fashion – and I think it actually bonded our group even more. Just another magical New Zealand moment!

The Mists of Lady Bowen

Early morning. Milford Sound, New Zealand. Tide’s out. We’re standing way out on the rocks. We have to move fast, because the tide is about to start coming in and it doesn’t mess around. It’s not violent or anything, but if you’re like me, you’d just rather not swim back into shore with your gear.

It’s tricky being in a stunningly gorgeous AND iconic place for the first time. You want to hold your breath in wonder, soak it all in for awhile. But you have to maximize the minutes you have out there, try to snag  photos that’ll give you chills when you get home and not shriek “Do over!!” when you’re 6000 miles away.
