Skip Hunt Creative Finder Folio
Don’t remember why or when I compiled these random video clips from various trips, but I just found it and it’s so amazing for me to virtually time travel & revisit all these places I’ve been to thus far. :)
Have recently published 2 new photo books on MagCloud and they are currently running a sale through Feb. 14th 2012. You can check out the previews and buy at the links below!
Every book I’ve ordered from them as been beautifully printed and heavy stock. I’ve added perfect binding to these as well.
Honored to have a second series of 7 photos featured on SevenDays-IN!
You can see the new series and a travel story from that trip HERE

Read some of the reviews of the printed Amazon version!
I met an Argentine juggler in the Huiricuta desert region of Mexico while I was communing with Mescalito and working on a large peace sign outlined in stone… started in 2009.
I asked if he wouldn’t mind juggling inside my peace sign and obliged.
:-) For your pleasure…
I also experimented with seeing what I could do with an iPhone 4 and a handful of apps while I was traveling. I published some “Skip Hunt 20/20” short photomags from the road and a fine art photographer friend or mine who bought one tells me the print quality is impressive. If you’re curious… those issues and more can all be previewed online HERE
After verifying the quality was indeed even more impressive than I’d hoped… I uploaded my favorites to a gallery HERE
A friend asked me about the warped composite, tiled, layered, blurred, etc. effect I got on some of the scenes from this trip, so I wrote a brief Squidoo article explaining what I was after and why. For anyone interested, I included samples, etc. HERE
You don’t need a camera bag full of gadgets, lenses, and tripods to get interesting, creative results. With a little thinking outside the box, all you need is a smart phone and a cool app or two. Read on to find out how working with the minimum of what you’ve got can actually enhance the creative process. The method discussed is also intended to further emulate human “seeing” and take a viewer even deeper into a shared experience at home or while traveling.
Trying to travel lighter and lighter… I decided to see how I could get by with only an iPhone for shooting and post processing. I did take a second compact that I had to use a few times, but I was surprised at just how often the iPhone 4 and a handful of apps was pretty much all I needed on the road.
When I got home and started looking at the edited images on a larger desktop screen, I was even more surprised at how well they hold up.
I’ll certainly take a higher-end compact on my next trip, but the following gallery proves to me that it won’t be much longer before an iPhone is the ONLY electronic gear I carry while traveling.
Here’s a gallery of just the iPhone 4 shot and app processed images from a month backpacking in Mexico: skip-hunt.artistwebsites.com/art/all/mexico+winter+2011/all
