Outdoor photography, for me, is more than snapping reference shots of where I have been, when and what I saw or what photographic equipment I have at my disposal. I always try to capture something that conveys the “why” based on light, atmosphere and the visual experience and connection one feels with the location. None of the former can be guaranteed, it relies on many factors and the ability to focus and balance the fight between intellect, emotion and circumstance. Photography workshops (location visits) are as much about adapting to what is obvious verses discovering what is beyond the obvious. Sometimes I succeed in this and sometime I knowingly fail.
