Photos from Bangkok with an iPhone – Part 2

Colors along a City Street © Art Wolfe

As promised here is the second installment of my iPhone images from Bangkok. I want to thank all of you who commented yesterday and also respond to many of you that were discussing the fact that it is not the camera, but the person operating the camera. I firmly believe that you as the photographer have the ability to create anything that you can visualize in your mind. Those who are taking my upcoming Creative Session Course will learn that the equipment is secondary and becomes only the means by which you put your vision in a form that others can appreciate. On Thursday, I am going to bring you a new how-to section entitled “Working Towards the Decisive Moment” in which I discuss how I achieved the final and strongest images in a series of shots. And then next Tuesday, we will be posting a video that highlights a completely new body of work from me.

Traveling through downtown Bangkok © Art Wolfe

I walked through downtown Bangkok, with only my iPhone, and these are some of the images that I was able to capture. I am really excited about the creative possibilities of utilizing this new technology in my image making process. Stay tuned for more images tomorrow.

I am very pleased to have not one, but two Canon ads in prestigious publications this month. The “Story Behind the Shot” appears in this month’s Photo District News and “Wildlife as Canon Sees It” is in National Geographic.

Thank you to all the people that made this happen!

Visit to San Francisco

This past weekend I was in San Francisco visiting my friend Ian Mackenzie. Ian is a brilliant anthropologist and his life’s work has been working with and writing the only dictionary for the Penan of Indonesia. The Penan is an indigenous Bornean rainforest tribe whose way of life is being forever changed by rampant resource extraction.

In 1995 he published Nomads of the Dawn with Wade Davis and Shane Kennedy. To this day it remains a powerful, tragic testimony to a disappearing way of life.

Ryan’s Mini

Wilderness guide & fellow traveler Jim Taylor got the Mini from http://www.ryansminiadventure.com/HOME.html,
took it to Antarctica and Art photographed it.
Ryan Marie Boykin was wonderful little girl who passed away from leukemia at the age of 3. Her Matchbox cars were her favorite toys and her favorite Matchbox was a red… Mini Cooper. As a tribute to Ryan’s spirit, travelers have been taking Minis all over the world, and now Antarctica has been conquered.
