  • Last Flight Out Photography!

    I get this question a lot..."Scotty, why Last Flight Out Photography?".

    Well, let's say you are on a trip to some exotic location like....uh....Iceland, for example. There are three flights heading home on the last day of your in the morning, one in the afternoon, and the last flight leaving just after dinner. Which one do you choose? If it were me, I would choose the Last Flight Out because I want to spend every last minute I can getting just ONE more shot....know what I mean?

    This blog/website highlights my favorite photographs from trips I make around the world. There's nothing I love more than sharing my passion for photography.

    I am a High School Photography Teacher at the Jakarta Intercultural School in Jakarta, Indonesia. If you are ever in this part of the world, give me a call, and we can go out shooting together. Thanks for visiting my site, and please come back again and again...

So this is what it looks like now. It has been like this for a few months now while we negotiate with the contractor(s). I hope these photos give you a better idea of what the piece of land looks like. I can’t wait to post photos of the actual building whenever that might be.

When it rains, it pours. I just got another email this morning that the above photo will also be used in publications to advertise diving in Papua. It is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken underwater. Very unique.

I was really surprised this morning to get a phone call on my cell phone from Mom today. Amazing how you can make a small cell phone ring from the other side of the world, and the connection sounded as if she were standing next door. Her call was an important one though, and my reservations are now in stone for next year’s trip. We will be staying in a pool-side room. Yes!!

I start to work as the Director of JIS Academy on Monday for two weeks. It pays pretty well, so I don’t mind. We will then go to Koh Samui for a week or so for a much needed break on the beach.

The weather today is looking like rain. I have Kayla with me at school….she loves coming here to run around my classroom and look at the fountain. We rode in the “frog” which she also loves. I guess I need to buy another car seat for the frog as it is a pain to switch car seats back and forth. OK….more later.

The newest edition of Jakarta Java Kini magazine is out. There is a 5-page spread on my photos and the book Letters From Aceh. Pretty cool.

In other news, I am meeting a bunch of friends tonight to watch USA try to beat Ghana. It is there last chance to stay in the World Cup. GO USA!!!

I finish my summer school class tomorrow. Next week, I will be covering as the Director of Summer School while Butch is out of town. I will pick up some extra cash which is never a bad thing.

Tika and I have decided on Koh Samui for our brief one-week vacation. It is one of our favorite spots, and I look forward to lounging on the beach, reading books, and good Thai food. Of course, I will take plenty of photos, and keep the blog updated.
