I’m feeling not so humble this morning, so I thought I’d give my ego a run off the chain and show you what is quite likely to be the greatest photo ever taken of the Taj Mahal.
Approximately 20000 people visit the Taj Mahal every day. Let’s say they each take 15 photos of it. That’s over 100 million photos of the Taj Mahal taken annually. Over a billion since digital photography took off. And everyone of them is pretty much the exact same picture.
When I visited the Taj Mahal a few weeks back, my goal was to produce something different. Fresh. Original. But still in keeping with the famous view we are all familiar with. And with this image I think I did it. I’m pretty happy with this photo as you might be able to tell.
Sometimes professional photography is about putting in years and years of hard work so you know exactly how to set the camera, focus it and be in exactly the right place at the right time to get a brilliant image that everyone else sees as a lucky shot. And here is that image.
And in other news, while I still haven’t finished working on the stock photos I took in India, I’m about to jump on a plane for another photography adventure. This time I am heading to Hong Kong to shoot some luxury stock photography images. It’s going to be super busy.
I have been away on another photography adventure. This last trip took me to India where I have been photographing all kinds of models and scenes that will be making their way to the Getty Images stock photography library. I’m back in Australia and fired up for some local Northern NSW wedding photography and commercial photographic work.
I’m about to abandon my family again for another photographic adventure. In the morning I am off to India for a couple of weeks to photograph the Holi colour festival among other things. Here’s how you can keep track of my adventures.
