How often have you been out in the field and wished you didn't have to carry so much gear in your backpack or wished something could be within a hand's reach?

Who doesn't love a good photography vlog? We have a pair of landscape-centric videos to share with you today. The first video is from Gary Gough, a photographer and educator. Gary was recently in the Isle of Skye in Scotland leading a five-day workshop. He considers the Isle of Skye one of the best places in the world for landscape photography due to its dramatic skies. In the video below, we
In the usual places we’re seeing the monthly “Urbex (urban exploration) photographer dies in fall” story making the rounds.
