Into The Atmosphere | Timelapse – California

This young man is beginning a great future as a photographer/videographer; one worth following. Albeit diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age (more) it is truly amazing the accomplishment that result from Michael Shainblum’s unwavering family love and support during his earlier years.

For those of us interested in photography/videography watch behind-the-scenes to find out how Shainblum creates visual magic in the video above.

Collectively these two trails are a bit less than 20kms in length but give immense payback in views, flow and tech. Just off the Alaska Highway in Northern BC in Stone Mountain Provincial Park it was well worth getting the afternoon thundershower.

Adventure Is Calling

This summer, two friends and myself (Shane Black) all left our comfortable jobs of six years to spend two months traveling across the country and teaching photography workshops along the way. We all felt that it was time to take a risk and get out of our comfort zones… adventure was calling us. It was a trip filled with endless hours cooped up in a van, exploring breathtaking landscapes, sharing stories and laughs, meeting some of the nicest people, making new friends, getting to meet old friends from around the country, and sharing our love of photography with others.

This trip was a constant test for me, as we had such short and limited time in nearly all of the spots we visited. In most cases, I’d have to hurry out of the van with all of my gear and find a decent composition in a very short amount of time as soon as we would arrive at the location. It was a constant race against the light.

During those 2 months, we traveled across 32 states , visited 13 national and state parks, and drove nearly 13,000 miles in a (somewhat) trusty old Dodge Caravan… with no cruise control. It was an adventure that gave us many memories that we will all hold onto for many years to come. I think that everybody needs to take a trip and have their eyes opened to just how beautiful this world is and how much is really out there.

A big thanks to Coca-Cola and Flickr for helping to sponsor our trip. Thanks also to everyone else that donated, attended our workshops, and gave us places to stay!
