360 Panoramas

This year, I’ve been experimenting with a new technique: 360×180 panoramas. Such an image captures the entire visual sphere, panning over 360 degrees and tilting 180 degrees from straight down to straight up vertically. Flattened with a spherical projection, as in the two images of Arches National Park which illustrate this post, it looks strange, […]

North Vietnam Photo Tour with QT Luong

Following our successful 2012 Vietnam photo tour (see also work by participants Mark Wainer, Barry Andrews, Ron Harris), I will be leading a new North Vietnam photo tour in collaboration with Insiders Asia from Dec 12 to Dec 22, 2014. Why North Vietnam ? The North has seen less economic development than the South. It […]

National Parks Foundation calendar covers

For their 2014 Calendar, the National Parks Foundation has chosen several of my National Parks images, including for the cover, just like they did in 2013. I know from experience that this is not an uncommon in publishing, but I still find the reversed left-to-right Channel Islands odd. What do you think of the practice […]

April/May 2014 Grand Canyon Rafting Photo Workshop with QT Luong & Oliver Klink

Imagine standing below mile high canyon walls colored gold by the early morning sun, as their reflection dances in the turquoise waters of a secondary stream entering the Colorado River. This is only one of the extraordinary scenes you are privileged to photograph each morning, as we wake up before dawn to to take advantage […]

History Channel 2014 calendar + National Parks ranked

For their official 2014 Calendar, the History Channel Club has chosen 12 of my National Parks images, including 12 parks not featured in their 2012 calendar: Wrangell St Elias, Arches, Biscayne, Grand Teton, Big Bend, Saguaro, Olympic, Death Valley, Shenandoah, Isle Royale, Redwood, and Haleakala. Speaking of National Parks selections, The Active Times recently embarked […]

Making 1st time-lapse video: Hawaii Volcanoes

I have just released my first time-lapse short. Best viewed Full Screen with sound ! Hawaii Volcanoes from QT Luong on Vimeo. I have actually been capturing time-lapse and video footage for several years now, so you may be wondering why this comes out only now. This blog post is a long answer to that […]

Oct 2013 Canyonlands Maze Backcountry Photo Tour with QT Luong

Imagine camping surrounded by a landscape of vividly colored hoodoos, lit by a crescent moon as the Milky Way appears, bright in a sky free of light pollution. This is your view as you enjoy a hearty dinner, cooked by our guides cowboy-style, as we sit nearly a hundred miles away from the closest paved […]

Outdoor Photographer Magazine profiles QT Luong

The opening feature in the March 2013 issue of Outdoor Photographer Magazine is an article about my nature landscape work. Read the web version. I am honored to be called a “modern master” and “artist” by such a prestigious magazine, and to have been interviewed by a writer as perceptive as William Sawalich, who distilled […]

Myanmar Photo Tour 2014 with QT Luong

Rudyard Kipling described Burma (now Myanmar) as “unlike any land you know about.” Having visited all the countries in continental South-East Asia, some several times, I have indeed found Myanmar to be the most fascinating of them. The sites by themselves would be compelling enough. They have a magical quality which defies the imagination and […]

QT Luong featured in Black Card Mag

Summer 2012 issue of Black Card Mag (the luxury lifestyle magazine for holders of the exclusive credit cards for the 1%) opened with a 24-page travel feature about the US National Parks. Yellowstone, Olympic, Arches, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain, Crater Lake, Denali, Glacier, and Everglades are introduced with a brief description, not-to-miss highlight, and […]
