My travel photography series Photowalks just debuted on Tubi, the free TV streaming app. In the series, first hatched in Manhattan Beach from my garage, I set out to bring viewers with me to great places and show them how to get postcard-perfect photos.
How many times do we travel and complain that our photos don’t look anywhere as great as the postcard image the local tourism boards show us? I can help with that.
The first six episodes of Photowalks are set on the Oregon Coast, the Big Island of Hawaii, Portugal, Los Angeles, Morro Bay and Catalina and Balboa Islands.
The series began in 2019 as a YouTube series, but it’s been a long dream of mine to have the show available to TV viewers, on streaming, so I’m thrilled we’re now on Tubi, as well as Google Play, Comcast and Cox video-on-demand.
I got the idea for the show while visiting Japan, where things were really as wild and electric as you’ve probably heard in in Tokyo, at Shibuya Square, and in Osaka, in the Dotonbori district, I had to capture it all with my camera and make a travel video.
I showed the video to my friend Bill Weiner, and while he liked it, he told me it was wanting.
“But where are the photo tips? Anyone can do a travel video. But if you do it, we expect to hear tips on how to get great photos with our smartphones.”
