"Geez, Tim, your photo gear alone is heavier than my entire backpack!" This was a fellow backpacker I met in Glacier National Park. She was exaggerating...I hope. But it is certainly true that adding a lot of photography equipment to a loaded camping backpack adds significant weight.

So why...

Kevin Gilbert was in a hurry.
"I'm heading out for a six-week assignment," the globetrotting photographer
said to me over the phone about a year ago. So we made it a fast conversation.
I got the information I needed for the story I was working on, andth...

The real adventure of photography
is being passionate about creating images that reflect your view of
the world--not the repetition of someone else's ideas. To produce
great images, you'll sometimes have to...

"Ninety-nine percent of what makes good photography is being there," Kevin Fleming says. "Some supplement the lighting with a flash, use filters, or touch things up on the computer. But my way is the opposite--being there at just the right moment, at the instant when color, light, and shape come together."

For a decade, Fleming worked for...

It was late afternoon on my last day in Big Bend National Park. I faced east where the Chisos Mountains rose up in steep cliffs from the desert. A few days after the New Year, there was a slight chill in the air but I was not thinking about the temperature. Rather, I was concentrating on the rapidly shifting light as the sun sank and clouds moved back and forth. With my camera mounted on a...

My great-grandparents homesteaded in the northern part of the Black Hills around the turn of the 20th century, but found the environment too inhospitable for traditional farming and moved to eastern South Dakota. But that bond to the Black Hills continues to be passed down through my family, and I’ve visited the area on a regular basis since I was a little boy. My earliest travels with a camera were to the Black Hills during my early teens on family vacations, with resulting photos that failed to show how the area made me feel. As my photographic skills improved I’ve returned many times, but have only yet begun to scratch the surface of the numerous natural wonders located in the Black Hills.

In the fourth grade every kid in California learns about Father Junípero (say, who-NIP-ero) Serra of Mallorca, Spain. A tough little man who was destined to become both the founder of California and someday, a saint.

Ansel Adams had Yosemite, for Edward Weston it was Point Lobos, while Galen Rowell prefers places with mostly vertical surfaces. It seems that every photographer has his/her special place, a place where all seems in balance, we feel most alive, and the...

How would you like to photograph dramatic ocean scenes, wildlife, Spanish missions, urban landscapes, agriculture, mountain vistas, wildflowers, marine mammals, surfing and sailing, fishing villages, multi-million dollar real estate, thriving artist's colonies, remote lighthouses, and even a real castle?

This photographer's paradise...

Recently we had an opportunity to witness first hand Canon's involvement with the US National Parks, the occasion being the 90th anniversary of the founding of the National Park Service and the opening of the new Canyon Visitor Education Center in Yellowstone. As we sat through the opening ceremonies, addressed by Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne, we learned how...

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Maybe the occasional splash of a drop of water, but other than that, nothing. After a few moments, the park ranger states that anyone who has a question should raise their hand now. Everyone chuckles and the lights come back on to once again reveal the huge expanse that only hints at the size of Mammoth Cave. When no artificial light source is present...

The photographs of Chen Changfen speak of tranquility and mysticism. Winter snow melting into the sea beneath a cold blue sky; miles of sand and rock as well as mountain landscapes have created a poetic background for the Great Wall of China over the years. For the past 30 years Changfen has trudged the steep paths to photograph the rough, hidden beauty of the Wall in a variety of...

People who have attended art classes have been taught that in order to produce depth in a painting there must be a foreground, middle ground, and background. Control over this dimension and depth usually is the result of planning and foresight. As...
