I’m just back from an epic 10 days with my family, photo gear and some kitesurfing friends on the Sea of Cortez. Excited to see a clear dawn forecast with a new moon rising over La Ventana Bay at blue-hour, I got up early one morning only to find an unexpected marine layer blocking it. In this video I’ll talk about how I try to shift photographic gears and work in new ways when things don’t go as planned. I’ll also talk about my strategies for balancing my passion for photography with enjoying my family when we’re all on trips like this.
