• Hi Folks,

    A quick update on the messaging system…

    I’ve found a way to send a private message to everyone at once, and that triggers an email to your registered address, with the body of the message included.

    You should have received the first notification sent like this a few hours ago. I know that two Comcast users didn’t receive the email…Read More

  • Hi Tozze,

    Welcome to the community and thank you for subscribing, and for the kind words.

    I apologize for taking a few days to reply. I was just finishing up my first Japan winter tour of the season and getting this week’s post out. I hope you enjoy it.

    I look forward to communicating more as things heat up in here.


  • Hokkaido Landscape Tour 2019 Travelogue 1 (Podcast 647)

    Just back from my 2019 Hokkaido Landscape Photography Adventure Tour & Workshop, today we start a three-part travelogue series with a total of 30 images over the next three weeks to illustrate our adventure.

    As usual, we kicked off this…

    • Martin, as a member, I downloaded the eBook version of this post and was sad to discover that the formatting breaks up your beautiful horizontal images into two separate vertically formatted pages. Is this something you can fix? Otherwise your posts are better to view in the online version, reducing some of the value of the membership.

      • Hi Chris,

        Please read the instructions here: https://mbp.ac/pdf

        The book is designed for maximum flexibility, but you have to change the settings to view the double page spreads.

        I’ve found the best way to view is using the Mac OS X Preview app. Just open the PDF with the Preview app, then hit the CTRL + COMMAND + F keys to go to full screen, and press COMMAND + 3 to show the two page spreads, and navigate between pages with the arrow keys.

        The eBooks look great in Preview, as well as the other apps I mention on the above help page.

        Please let me know if you continue to have problems and thanks for subscribing!


    • Dear Martin. These images are magnificent. It is disappointing that I was not able to join you on this workshop but I am hoping to get some equally stunning landscape opportunities during our wildlife workshop next month. Regards, Yvonne

      • Thanks Yvonne!

        Sorry we weren’t able to accommodate you the Landscape Tour. Please don’t get your hopes up too much for landscape work on the wildlife tour though. We travel in different parts of Hokkaido and the priority is on Wildlife. There will be a few Landscape opportunities, but it’s not really like the Landscape Tour. That’s why they are separate tours.


    • Hi Martin. I am equally eager to photograph the wildlife. It is a compliment to your images that you make the landscape so enticing.
      Regards, Yvonne
