I had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time with the awesome crew of employees at Kata Bags this past November. Based in Jerusalem, Israel, Kata has been a legit player in the photo backpack arena for some time now. While I don’t “officially” endorse Kata Bags, they make a stellar product, and I truly enjoyed the time spent with them in their beautiful country. Check out the video above for a look at our time together, or visit http://www.kata-bags.com/About+Kata/Activities/Falling+For+Kata/FALLING+FOR+KATA/18164170 for a more in depth look.
It’s been a fantastic first week of our photo tour through Southeast Asia with M&M Photo Tours! Time is always scarce on these jam packed jaunts, so I’ll just throw up a few images and hopefully get a bit more time to delve into the details later. So far, highlights have included seeing the annual lantern festival in Luang Prabang, visiting the crazy markets in Hanoi and wandering the terraced rice fields of Sapa. We take a night train back to Hanoi tonight, and then it’s off to spend an evening on one of the most beautiful areas of shoreline in the world: Ha Long Bay. 84 gb of memory shot so far, many bowls of pho devoured, far less mosquito bites than one would expect, and countless unforgettable experiences. Here’s to another week through Indochina!
I’m extremely excited to announce a new partnership with M&M Photo Tours as a guest pro at six workshops/tours this summer. See the official release below for details! Also–M&M has graciously agreed to offer any of my fans/followers a $100 discount off National Parks workshops and a $250 discount off the “Best of Italy” tour.
