Create: How to Photograph on Vacation

Hey Kids, so I’ve started a real filmmaking portion of my “career.” As many of you know, I tried this many times in the past and it never worked. For some still unknown reason, this time it stuck and I’m actually loving the process.

The goal? Features. Is this a realistic goal with my lifestyle? No. Will I still announce this as my intention? Sure, why not? I want to know how to make feature-length films. In fact, I WILL make a feature in the next few years. All by my lonesome. Will it be good? Probably not but that never stopped me before and it surely won’t know.

I recently went on vacation and built out a small film about making pictures while taking time off. This would seem like an easy scenario, and it is to some degree, but it can also make everyone around you a bit crazy. I’m posting these films to Marc Silber’s channel on YouTube because he asked me to do so. So far, it’s been working well.

I don’t have any real goal of subscribers, likes, views, etc. which I think puts me in the minority on YouTube. I’m trying to learn and to share, that’s it. Here is last week’s film. Stay tuned for many, many more.

  1. I am enjoying the ride. This truly appears to be the age of video. Storytelling in the modern age. I look forward to your adventure. Thanks for taking us along.

    1. Thanks Alan. Video has been king for quite some time, but you know me, I love the quiet and the simple which video is NOT.

    2. Thanks Alan. Video is king, has been for a while, but you know me, I like slow and simple so I’ve been a hold out.

    1. PG,
      Been wearing prescription Oakley’s for years. Best glasses EVER. And yes, they look odd.

  2. I’m loving all of these small films. There is always something inspiring or a small thought nugget to take away from these. Looking forward to seeing more of these.

    Thank you for making them and keep up the great work!

  3. Ok, glad I read this. I was confused about not being able to find your youtube channel. I could have sworn you have or had your own YT channel.

    1. Scott,
      I do but have been posting to Marc’s first. My bike films, however, are going to mine.

  4. Great you mentioned the mixing creative media, I was just thinking about that this summer and started writing poetry at night before bed and love it. Just like photography most of it isn’t stuff I’ll ever share, it’s rubbish but keeps my creative monkeys running. But who knows some may end up alongside some of my pictures in my next book print.
