Steven Frischling, aka: Fish, is globe hopping professional photographer, airline emerging media consultant working with large global airlines and founder of The Travel Strategist. Fish has racked up more than 1,000,000 miles since he started to track his mileage in 2005.

Fish's travel tends to be less than leisurely, including flying from New York to Basrah, Iraq, for six hours; Hong Kong for eight hours, Kuwait City for two hours and traveling around the world in 3.5 days to shoot a series of photo assignments in 4 cities and 4 countries on 3 separate continents.

Fish grew up at the end of New York's JFK International Airport's Runway 4R/22L, which probably explains his enjoyment of watching planes, fly overhead. When not shooting photos or traveling Fish designs camera bags, hones is expertise on airline security and spends his time at home cheering for the Red Sox with his 3 kids 102 yards from the ocean.

Properly Packing Cameras To Avoid Damage In Transit

Photographers like to be ready for anything, I get that, I know that, I have lived that for many years … but when packing cameras in bags that may go under a plane, including being ‘valet checked’ while boarding a Regional Jet or Turbo Prop, packing gear properly makes far more sense than packing it […]

Photographers, Southwest Airlines & Pre-Boarding

It seems that once a week, if not more often, a photographer emails me, Tweets more or calls me asking about Southwest Airline’s preboarding for photographers and credentialed media.   While the link to Southwest Airlines’ preboarding may no longer be on their website, the policy still very much exists, and is great for ensuring […]

Dear TSA – MacBook Air & iPad In The Bag Or Out?

It is hard to believe I have been traveling with an iPad for well over half-a-year now and an 11″ MacBook Air for more than a month. Both of these travel tools have changed how I work on the road and how I pack … but both tools present a consistent problem at the start […]

Scottevest Travel Vest : There’s A Pocket For That

Baggage is an annoyance on the road; even carry on baggage, especially short trips.  Travel with bags slows travelers up at security check points, leaves traveler property at risk for theft or loss at security check points … and for day trips requires travelers to schlep their bags wherever they go. Yes, I admit, there […]

iPad App of the Week : Portfolio for iPad

In the digital world online portfolios are rapidly replacing printed portfolios, yet photographers still have the need to present their work in person … and the desire to share their newly created images wherever they may be. The iPad is a fantastic tool for photographers, with new Apps being released constantly turning the iPad into […]

Travel Photography : Pouches & Shedding Bags

A common theme with photographers … and a theme in things I have written about photographers … is that we like to carry pretty much everything with us on the road. Maybe it is a genetic kink in our DNA as photographers, that insecure feeling that we’re missing something, that we will miss something, but […]

iPhone App Of The Week : GorillaCam

While most people love iPhone Photo Apps, most just disappoint me … with a few exceptions … so I tend to just use the iPhone camera as is then edit the photos later in the Filterstorm App (which I really need to write about since its been overhauled & released for the iPhone). This week’s […]

Five Quick Camera Repairs On The Road

Traveling and camera go hand in hand. Whether you’ve just hopped in the car for the day or boarded a long haul flight crossing continents and oceans … a camera in every travelers bag is a must. For those who choose to travel with ‘full size’ camera, the occasional “oops” situations arise, and trust me […]

iPad App of the Week : TiltShift Generator

My photo editing on my iPad is usually similar to my editing on my computer … quick and dirty … crop, colour correct, size, save. For my primary editing with the iPad I use Filterstorm, which I have written about HERE (and I need to rewrite since the App has been improved significantly), but sometimes […]

Photographers: Know Who Your Blaming…especially when falsely blaming the TSA

The other day as I checked the comments section for Flying With Fish I was met with a link back to a blog post by Chuck “Caveman” Coker entitled “I Hate the TSA” … naturally my interest was piqued. As I checked the “I Hate the TSA” link the first thing that caught my eye […]
