Editor’s Blog

Welcome to the blog of HDR One editor, Jimmy McIntyre. He is a full-time traveller, photographer, magazine editor, and language learner. Having been on the road for a number of years now, he is technically homeless. His journey for the next 2.5 years will take him far and wide. At the end of it he expects to be a pillar of wisdom, fluent in every language, and slightly more bald – unfortunately .

His life, however, is photography. This blog contains some of his musings around HDR and photography in general, news about HDR One, and a photo or two, of course.
