Top 20 Travel Photos – 2017

2017 was an amazing travel year for me. I was able to travel to Canada, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Norway and Arizona. My wife had encouraged me to take a photo trip with a friend of mine (Brace Hemmelgarn) for a year or two so we both decided to take the leap and go traveling together. We’re both sports photographers but we appreciate great landscapes and seem to like similar destinations. We get along, and we get a chance to shoot along side each other a lot, so it made sense. My 2017 trips were:

  • Lofoten Islands, Norway – February (with Brace)
  • Arizona – April (family trip)
  • Manitoba – August (family trip)
  • Iceland & the Faroe Islands – November (with Brace)

The photo trips are a lot of planning. Deciding where to go for the day, where to take sunrises, daytime exploring, sunsets, and northern lights. Go home edit, post, repeat. At the end of the trips we both enjoy putting the cameras down and exploring the city and culture for a couple days. We spent a couple of days in both Oslo and Reykjavik at the end of each photo trip, walking through downtown, eating, and exploring.

I doubt my 2018 travel destinations will top this so I hope you enjoy the photos (click to see full size). All images are for sale at: photoreflect.com

Antelope Canyon Pics

A gallery of images from my trip to Northern Arizona where I visited Upper Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. These are bucket list images for a lot of photographers and when I knew we were planning a spring break trip to Phoenix and Sedona, I had to travel a couple hours north and photograph these amazing landmarks. The images look peaceful, isolated, and almost in a place where people rarely set foot in, but the reality is quite the opposite. There’s a video in another one of my blogs of what it’s really like photographing these landmarks and the crowds of people that are there. Regardless, I felt I was able to capture some pretty amazing images.

Norway Northern Lights

A photographer friend and myself decided to go on a photo trip to Northern Norway and explore the Lofoten Islands. We planned a 10 day adventure staying in Leknes and Reine exploring the area and taking pictures throughout the day and evenings. We had unbelievable luck and caught a Northern Lights show the first 5 days we were there. The islands are simply amazing and there is a scenic photo everywhere you turn. These were my favorite Northern Light images from the trip. All these images can be purchased through PhotoReflect. Enjoy!

Race for the Cure

Here’ s a behind the scenes look at the Komen Minnesota Survivor tent. Its my 7th year photographing this event and its the only event I still do for free. It approximately 3 hours of shooting and about 280 groups of people come through, averaging about 22 seconds per group. Its crazy how many people we funnel through here every year.

Antelope Canyon

Here’s a behind the scenes video of what it was like photographing one of Arizona’s famous landmarks, Upper Antelope Canyon. I did expect the crowds of people and paying extra for the “photo tour” was worth the money. While paying the extra money was great, you have to realize there were also five other tour companies there at the same time. In my opinion, this video ruins the images I took. The images look peaceful, isolated, and almost in a place where people rarely set foot in, but the reality is quite the opposite. There are only a handful of images at the end of the video but I captured quite a bit more. They can be found on my website: PhotoReflect under Arizona.
