Stuck in Chicago

My flight from Hartford to Chicago was late, so I missed my flight to Korea. Looks like I'm running 24 hours behind.

It's cold here and I want to be in Bali :(

Leaving Tomorrow

In less then 24 hours I will be on a plane on my way to Bali, Indonesia. I just need to get a few things for the trip, pack my bags, and I'm on my way.

I will try to update my blog periodically while I am there if I am able to get an internet connection.

I'll be back soon with photos and, hopefully, some great stories!

New Product Photos

I recently did some photos for Colleen Miller at Greenridge Herbals. Her lusciously natural products are produced in Florida and formulated with very high quality organic oils and herbal infusions. I had the chance to try her "A Midsummers Night Creme" and it is fantastic. I can't wait to try more of her products.

Less then 2 weeks....

'til Bali! With the weather we've been having lately (COLD) I can not wait for some hot, humid weather.

My news for the day? I found a bathing suit that not only fits me, but I actually like it! I got it from Athleta. I had never heard of this company until I got a catalog in the mail, but I'm now a huge fan of their clothes. In addition to my new bathing suit, I bought a really cute knit skirt. The fabric and construction are both very high quality.

So what does a travel photographer bring to Bali? Well, normally I would just bring a camera body and a couple of lenses. I like to travel light. However, since I have a job to do there, beyond photographing the people and culture, I need to be prepared. My list of equipment includes: 2 Camera bodies, 5 lenses (4 primes and 1 zoom), filters, flash, tripod, reflector and diffusion panel, lap top computer, 2-4GB memory cards, plus all of the battery chargers and cords to go along with all that stuff. It's not going to be fun carrying all of that stuff around, but even though I'm going to somewhere warm and tropical, I have to keep telling myself this is not a vacation.
