Tomorrow morning, I leave on a month long photography-based road trip of the western United States. I will of course be visiting friends and family along the way, but the heart of the trip centers around one very special individual. When I get to Oregon, I will be meeting up with Marc Adamus for a few days of shooting!
Marc is one of the finest landscape photographers in the world. Check out his work and you'll see what I mean -- it's simply incredible. He is renowned for stopping at nothing to get a shot. He will often hike 20, 30, 40 miles deep into the wilderness, in the middle of winter, to get a single photo. He has been published many times and won gobs of awards.
So, why the heck has Marc agreed to meet with the likes of me? Good question. Maybe all that high-altitude hiking has clouded his judgement. Or, maybe he's feeling compassionate and wishes to help the needy. Or, maybe, just maybe, he sees something in me. Whatever the case, I sure am glad he did. He is going to take me to some of his secret spots and I think I'm going to learn a lot. I couldn't be more stoked!!
Before I go, I want to keep with my tradition and post some shots. These are from this year's Renaissance Festival. As always, larger versions can be found here in my Fine Art Galleries. They are the very last photos I had left to edit and process. I am now completely caught up and ready for the trip. When I return, I'll surely have hundreds if not thousands of new shots to work on. It never ends! And, I love it.
See you in a month!
