I was going to take the drone out yesterday but the rain clouds came in. So instead, I dug up some of last year's Aztec Workshop photos that I didn't have time to edit. Apparently, I hum when I edit photos. I guess it makes me happy!⠀

This photo of @lindamariscal was taken by Angela from Tumbleweed Portraits and Photography. @breimaree and @el_miguel_ro helped me hold lights, feathers, and giant ferns just out of shot.⠀

This path came at the welcome end of an amazing trek across the Canadian countryside. The only downside was swarms of mosquitos. I had never seen anything like this before. You could see people coming towards you by the black cloud of mosquitos that crowded around them. Insane. And it says more for the stunning surroundings that it barely ruined the stunning landscapes Canada has. Thanks to Stef and Jo for showing us around. I can't wait to go back. ⠀

I really like this photo. Partly because I just happened upon the spot while driving home on a night I thought was going to be a bust - photography wise - because I had not found a nice view! It's often too easy to just go to places where other people have taken great photos before. Exploring is more fun!! What is your best photo that you fell upon? Have a great weekend everyone!

This is the last photo from a session earlier in the month in #Oaxaca. @romina_saldie is wearing a huipil from the Valle National region. The huipil is a common traditional garment worn from Mexico through to Central America. One of the oldest huipils in existence was thought, until really recently, to have been worn by the infamous Malinche - Hernán Cortés’ interpreter. A woman instrumental in helping the conquistador conquer Mexico. But then carbon dating showed it was only 200 years old. Oh well, it was a great story while it lasted! Thanks again to @el_miguel_ro and @fernandocrvz.⠀

I spent a couple of weeks last month driving around the Olympic Penninsula. It was my first time in that region, an area that I always wanted to visit because of its stunning natural beauty. Although sunsets were few and far between on this trip, I was blown away by the landscapes. It felt like I was in a scene from Jurassic Park!⠀

We were taking this photo in such strong sunlight that I could barely see the LCD on the camera. I really shouldn’t complain though, it took a week of waiting before the rain took a break! The shot was taken in the cactus garden in front of the spectacular Temple Santo Domingo in the historical Oaxaca city. .

We took this photo barely 24 hours before the earthquake hit Oaxaca​. The capital, where we are based, was mostly undamaged but other parts of the state and neighboring Chiapas have been seriously hit. Since then, it's been amazing to see donation centers pop up on almost every street corner. If you not are local and want to help you can donate online at You Caring through their website https://www.youcaring.com/victimsofearthquakeinoaxaca-942584⠀

Thanks to everyone who took part in this shoot! @fernandocrvz @romina_saldie @el_miguel_ro

After the recent 8.0 earthquake in neighbouring Chiapas, I took to the skies with the drone to see how Oaxaca's 500 year old churches handled the event. Luckily, it looks like the town was spared any real damage. Other towns closer to the epicentre were not so lucky..

This was one of my first photos with the drone. Taken on the outskirts of #olympicnationalpark. I'm about to take it out now and see if how Oaxaca survived last nights earthquake. #lookdownonit #30daysofleap @leapmode
September is not the best time to shoot in #Oaxaca. It seems to start raining every time I pick up my camera! Luckily, after a few false starts, I spent a fun few hours with @fernandocrvz , @el_miguel_ro and @romina_saldie . ⠀

The shoot only got started after I ran back home to get the power cable for the strobes (oops). After that, we jumped around a few locations in the historic town center. ⠀

This was my first time out with the Paul C. Buff, Inc. octabox. It's a bit of jump from speed lights, but being able to call on 640 watts opens up some great possibilities! ⠀

This photo, my favourite of the day, was taken under a disused aqueduct. @el_miguel_ro is creating the 'ray of light' by leaving a gap between the diffusion layer and the umbrella. @fernandocrvz is behind the camera and I'm throwing petals in the air and using a DIY fill light (white plastic bag + speedlight). Have a great weekend!⠀
Tikal at sunrise is an amazing spectacle. Seeing the tops of its pyramids looming over the dense jungle, it’s not hard to see why this was a set for Return of the Jedi. Tikal was a major Maya - one of the grandest in Mesoamerica. It was invaded by the distant power of Teotihuacan. Teotihuacan was a power based in what would become the Aztec homeland and is now Mexico City - that’s over 1000 kilometers away! One hell of a walk for an army without the wheel! ⠀
Location scouting (with a bit of posing thrown in for good measure) with @breimaree. Things are finally coming together for a few photo shoots in and around #Oacaxa over the next few weeks.
Lake Atitlan is in the Mayan heartland of Guatemala. Until very recently the distinct indigenous communities dotted around the lake spoke only distinct languages and could barely communicate. ⠀

It’s not just the fascinating cultural history that brought us to this serene part of Central America. The lake itself was formed by a massive volcanic eruption 85,000 years ago. The scale of the event is barely imaginable. It blanketed Guatemala with ash 200 meters deep in places. Ash from the Atitlan eruption is found as far north as Florida. Most of Central America would have been plunged into darkness for many months.⠀
I’m such a procrastinator sometimes. I’m only in #Oaxaca for 2 more weeks but I’ve only just started to organise some shoots!
I'm obsessed with Meso-American culture. To think there was a time when such huge civilisations, like the Europeans and Aztecs, could Exist without knowledge of each other is hard to grasp for children of such a connected age. The Aztecs are named after their ancestral home: Aztlan. But like so much of their story, it is shrouded in mystery. Some historians place it near the Mexican/US border. Others believe it is purely mythical.
Heading back to #Sayulita in a few weeks to kick off another season of #AztecWorkshops. This is one of the many great BTS photos @el_miguel_ro took from our last shoot in May!⠀
We managed to squeeze in one last photo before the sun went down at this #aztecworkshop. @breimaree told me once that taking a silhouette photo was cheating. It's true, a silhouette effectively takes light management and facial expressions out of the equation. But, on the hand, it can be a wonderful way to infuse drama or mystery into a photo.
