PNP Newsletter #15: Scouting Tools

How do you keep track of the spots in which you want to shoot? Is there an app you recommend where I could make notes of places maybe right on an electronic map, or some other process? — Quinn M., Tenn.

PNP Newsletter #14: Alternatives to Death Valley Heat

I am considering taking a photo trip to Death Valley mid-spring, but looks like it might be too late in the year as normal daily temperatures will already be mid-90’s. Are there any other parks you recommend for the last week of April? — Ryan, New York City

Picture-Perfect Places: Sarvent Glacier Cross-Country Zone, Mount Rainier
