Sunrise Photoshoot in Venice at Piazza San Marco

You have to be crazier than the rest of the people in Venice in order to get the best shots, which means getting up even earlier than what most people think is already an early time to wakeup. Waking up at 5am to capture the early morning scenes in Venice has …

Manhattan from the Top of The Rock

Taken in mid December, just before Christmas from the Top of the Rock with my FujiFilm X-Pro1 and the 23mm. Many people go to the Empire State Building, to take on the sights of Manhattan, but here’s the thing. The view is mostly obstructed with heavy bars, and you need …
