In 2014, I wrote a blog post called The Photographer's Guide to Saratoga Springs, NY, featuring photos I've taken in my hometown. I've decided to expand on that and now share some photos I've taken in the greater Albany area.
Before you read, please note that this is not a comprehensive guide to everything there is to see in New York's Capital Region. Having spent most of my life here, however, I have a pretty good idea of what I think are some of the best photo spots.

After completing my Saratoga Photography Map, I decided to make another map with all the Southern California landmarks and filming locations I've visited. This map is by no means comprehensive (how could it be?), but it's certainly worth a look if you like seeing where movies and tv shows are filmed, or if you're planning to visit SoCal and would like to see some of these places yourself. Here's a little preview of what you'll find in the map:

Selfies, while they've existed pretty much since the dawn of photography (see the world's first selfie here), have in the twenty-first century become a hallmark of our culture, for better or worse. As a photographer, I have always enjoyed finding ways to take selfies that have some sort of artistic merit. My definition of selfie is a photo in which the photographer appears. A few of these photos really challenge the idea of a selfie, but I do appear in all of them.
