  • A few weeks ago I spent a glorious week in Los Cabos researching and shooting for a feature for EnCompass Magazine, to run in the Jan/Feb 2015 issue. And I'll be writing and shooting a feature on China for EnCompass this October. In between I'm teaching photo workshops in New Zealand, the Grand Canyon and Switzerland...
