Good morning! Hope everyone is having a great week and looking forward to the weekend! I’m off to Gabriola Island for a week this Sunday, taking part in a few workshops – not photography related. I am here to remind you of another photography workshop, though! #auroraborealis #blachfordlakelodge #floatplane #northernlights #northwestterritories #nwt #photographyworkshop #spectacularnwt #vancouverphotographer #yellowknife
Over the holidays, I put together a free guide called "The Six Steps to Starting Out." I thought it might be useful for people who just got a DSLR for Christmas, or people who need an excuse to shake the dust off the camera sitting in the closet. #DIY #DSLR #howto #instruction #photography #sixsteps #tutorial #vancouver #vancovuerphotographer #workshop
Over the last few years, I've done a "Year In Review" post where I take a look at all the things, good and bad, that happened to me over that year. This year's post, albeit two weeks late, is going to be slightly different. Today, I am going to talk about the one resolution that I made last year, the one that above everything else I tried so very hard to adhere to. That resolution was hate. Please visit my blog - aaronvonhagen.blog - to read more!
Hello, everyone! Really excited to announce that I've finally got my blog up and organized the way I want it to look. I've been working on it the last couple days, and it's finally ready to be unleashed on the world! I'll be using this platform for a lot of different things such as displaying photo series, workshop announcements, travel schedules, book and gear reviews, and much more. #&beyond #aaronvonhagen #africa #andbeyond #basics #botwsana #instruction #introduction
Lightning strikes on New Years Day streaked through the sky during one of the most amazing electrical storms I've ever seen. I have never seen the sky light up like that night. It was fitting as it was our last night in Botswana and to be treated to a natural fireworks shot is just fine by me! @andbeyondtravel @andbeyondxudum @botswana_tourism @insta_botswana . . . . . #canadiancreatives #wildlycreative #andbeyondtravel #safari #africanamazing #vulture #safari #botswana #africa…

https://flic.kr/p/RiQAdk | Rwandan Stars | Our first night at Virunga Lodge (Volcanoes Safaris) in Rwanda, there were so many stars in the sky. I had never seen anything like it. I had to get up super early for a gorilla trek the next day, so I decided to set up my camera outside while I slept. I set a 30-minute timer so I could finish getting ready for bed and not cast any excess light into the frame, and not wanting to completely drain the battery, I set the intervalometer for 120 photos…
https://flic.kr/p/Q4tc53 | Deadvlei | Last year when I was in Deadvlei, we had some cloud cover, which made climbing Big Daddy much easier, but it also made Deadvlei look a lot different than the "typical" pictures I had seen from there. Big blue skies, contrasty red sand with white salt ground, they didn't have the same pop/effect when the sky was covered in clouds. So it was fitting that this year, although climbing Big Daddy seemed more rigorous, the conditions for Deadvlei wer...
