Wheels Up for Asia…

Dec 30

In News at 7:19am

Long flight this coming Sunday. NY to Tokyo to Hong Kong. Start teaching in HK on Tuesday. We’ve been planning this trip for so long, hard to believe it’s on top of us. All credit due to Louis Pang, friend, and fellow shooter. Our itinerary brings us from Hong Kong, to Singapore to Malaysia. Details here. After that, Drew and I disappear into the land of the yellow border, a strange and wonderful place, to do a story that will be published….sometime. Nat Geo does things on their own timetable, and their own way. Happy to play along and go where they tell me to go.

Got a bunch of stuff to work on, and a bunch of stuff brewing. Will be blogging updates. Lord knows I’ll be on a plane for a while, very shortly. Hope everybody’s year is closing out well. Hang in gang…more tk….

You should come to Tokyo to teach a class next time! For some reason, I’ve never heard of big-name U.S. based photographers giving workshops in Japan. A lot of cool stuff here. Well, have fun!

God’s speed Joe! Have a safe and wonderful trip. Please blog as often as you can for those of us that dream to someday do what you’re doing now! Looking forward to the “…more tk’s…” down the road. I hope that you, your family, and all of your wonderful staff have a very happy and healthy New Year!

I have just finished Your book “Hot Shoe Diaries” in a pretty well czech translation. I really do love it! Thank You. I’m thinking of a huge amount of Speedlites buying :-)
Have a nice trip.

Just don’t get eaten by one of those “dragon” on New Years.

Sounds fun, when we see you in Israel?
There is a large community of photographers that really would be happy to take part in your workshops!

There are not many people in this world that I would like to trade places with.

If I could keep my family, I wouldn’t mind being Joe Mcnally!
(any health issues I need to know about :)

Have a great trip, I look forward to the stunning images.

Wow, have a good trip. I’m leaving on Monday to go to Kenya on a shoot. It will be fun, interesting and who knows what else.

So with such long flights there will be plenty of time for blog posting, right? I’d also like to know how and what you pack for a long multi-leg trip like this one.

Have a great trip.

Can’t wait to see what you and Louis create over there. He’s a really gifted photog as well!

Nothing like starting the year ‘full on’ Joe :)
Have a great trip and I look forward as we all do to read/see what you got up to.

All the best to you and yours,
Happy New Year,

Hi Joe, happy New Year to you and your crews. Have a safe trip to Asia. Looking forward to meeting you, Louis, Drew and other members in the KK workshop!

Please have a safe flight to Asia. Hong Kong climate would be comfortable for you and all this time of the year. But Singapore and Malaysia would be 30ish deg C above NY. And the rain…I’d bet umbrellas would be preferred to softboxes or tri-grips? :-;
