I just finished a meeting with my web team. These guys are the same ones handling the Luminous-Landscape site, the Endowment site and some others. Our focus recently was on the new search and index feature for the Luminous-Landscape site. That project is complete and working really well. They are now focused on the remodel of the Kevin Raber Photography site. It will be a nice makeover retaining much of the simplicity of what is here now with a number of new features including a way you can purchase images online. Since for the next 6 weeks I am traveling to NYC, Iceland and then Antarctica I anticipate launching the new site first past of December. After that I hope to continue with an image a day theme as well as some other fun stuff. Thanks for your patience.
You may have noticed that I haven’t added anything to this site for a while. It certainly isn’t because of lack of content. I have been traveling extensively on Luminous-Landscape business as well Rockhopper. I have been from Iceland to S. America to the Palouse back to Iceland and leaving for Alaska in a week. While doing all of this I have also been writing articles, producing videos, working on a new photo project and redesigning the Kevin Raber website.
Very soon this site will take on a whole new look and feel. Working with my website designers I use for Luminous-Landscape we have come up with a new look and lots more functionality. We’ll have more galleries and on line print ordering available. The design is clean and it is easy to navigate and will always look fresh.
So, be patient a while longer and before the end of the summer we should have the new site launched.
One of our highlights on the Iceland trip was visiting an Ice Cave. Not only was the experience of getting to the cave fun but the cave was pretty cool too. We had to use big four-wheeled drive vehicles to get these and then once there get into all sort of gear. The light inside was all blue as the ice filters away all other light, So, here is a photo of the ice cave ceiling and one of me looking like I am straight out of the Blue Man Group.
You may have noticed I have been absent from any recent posts. This was due to leading a workshop in Iceland for Luminous-Landscape. We had a great workshop and we saw and did some amazing things. It was quite the adventure for sure. We had everything Iceland could throw at us weather wise. From cold and high winds to beautiful mild winter weather with perfect clouds. So, to get things caught up I will share a number of images I had posted on Facebook during the trip. My camera for this trip was the Sony A7rII as well as my iPhone. I had fun using both and you’ll see images made with each. These images are just a drop in the bucket of some beautiful images I have come home with. More will be coming. I am leading another Iceland workshop in June. And in a few weeks will head off to Patigonia and the Altiplano for two back to back workshops. So, expect lots of images.
This image was made last fall in Bar Harbor, Acadia NP. What a great place for photography. Today I am zipping up my bags and heading to Iceland to run workshop and 2 weeks of photography. I’ll post here, on Facebook as well as Luminous-Landscape as I travel and internet connections allow. Stay tuned.
Last year on my Antarctica visit I shot a lot of images as I usually do and when I came home I decided to try something new. I have been making a series of BW images from this amazing place. Here is the first of a week of Antarctica in BW.
