The Best Travel Camera for a Middle East Adventure

I recently received a message on facebook from a friend looking for advice on a travel camera. She wants to photograph her 4-week journey/adventure to the middle east to visit family, with a follow-up week at The Cochella Music and Arts Festival. To be completely honest I’m a tad jealous, but as a professional travel photographer I do have some pretty well tested thoughts and to help her (and possibly you) out in this matter.

 

Question about the best way to photograph and video travel economically

Remembering Pearl Harbor at 75

Just one day after the Empire of Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, Franklin D. Roosevelt stood before a joint session of congress and delivered a speech on December 8, 1941 that would come to be one of the most infamous in our nation’s history. At the outset of that seven minute message to the nation President Roosevelt referred to December 7, 1941 as  “a date which will live in infamy.”  Today, December 7, 2016, 75-years later, those words bounce around my mind as I contemplate the sacrifice of the 2,403 killed and 1,178 wounded, Sailors, Marines and civilians.

The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on USS Arizona (BB-39) during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Built in 1962, it straddles the sunken hull of the battleship without touching it and is visited by more than two million people annually. © Copyright 2016, Brett Flashnick – All Rights Reserved.

Travel to Reno Nevada for Hot August Nights 2015

One of the best things about traveling as a photographer is the ability to experience a variety of different events that you wouldn’t specifically seek out otherwise. At the start of a week of outdoor adventure and exploration around the Reno Tahoe area, I decided to head to Downtown Reno for the final Controlled Cruise for the week long classic car celebration Hot August Nights.

A Day in Philadelphia PA

A few weeks ago I found myself in Philadelphia, PA for a magazine photo shoot. With about 8-hours of down time between scouting and the shoot, I set out with my camera, a desire to explore, some helpful advice from visitphilly.com, and an empty stomach. After a full afternoon/evening I come to know why people refer to this as the “City of Brotherly Love” (aside from the fact that Philadelphia is actually Greek for brotherly love which is derived from philos, “love” or “friendship”, and adelphos, “brother”.  Sadly 8-hours was barely enough to scratch the surface of what this great city has to offer. If you find yourself in Philly, here are a few things that I learned to help you along your way.

The Washington Monument Fountain, situated just inside the northwest edge of Eakins Oval, in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art stairs, is shilouetted against a backdrop of scattered clouds.

2011 Favorites – Assignment & Personal Photos

2011 was an interesting year, with a lot of changes. The collection of images in the gallery below is the best way for me to share that.

I’ve been putting together galleries of my favorite images for the past seven years, and this gallery looks completely different than any other gallery I have shared before, and that excites me beyond belief for the potential to grow even more in 2012. I hope you enjoy looking through this gallery as much as I enjoyed putting it together.  I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for us.
