Years ago, before I became a free-lancer, I worked at a publishing company that every summer held a couple of employee baseball games, and for each game I was asked the same question: "You gonna play or shoot?"

Tough decision. I loved to play baseball. Though my passion exceeded my skills, I was a reliable singles hitter and played an adequate first base.

Being a photography instructor is very rewarding and has proved to be an inspiration to me. Teaching Digital Photography at UCLA Extension in Los Angeles, I have found the interaction with students benefited me at least as much as them. But what if someone wants to take your class and is halfway around the world? That is where online teaching comes in and I am lucky enough to have...

If you've been reading any of my articles recently, you're no doubt aware that I like lighting gear. I especially like studio flash generators, big pro flash lamp heads, heavy-duty movie set style Matthews "C" stands, giant...

As the songs says, it don't
come easy. Solar eclipse photography is not something to be taken lightly
or accomplished without preparation and protection. First, it can be
very dangerous: without the rightshielding...

Many photographers will walk out the door for a portrait shoot with little more than a camera and a reflector. They do so based on the common belief that flash photography is meant exclusively for indoor shooting, that flash is only used when there isn’t enough light to achieve a perfect exposure. However, based on my experience, a flash combined with a few affordable accessories has tremendous...

"We jump off the plane in the middle of the afternoon and there are buses waiting to take us to the first sightseeing destination," travel photographer Bob Krist says. "Meanwhile, an unseen crew takes our luggage to the hotel. When we get back to the hotel in the late afternoon our luggage is in our rooms. We eat dinner. The next day is a full day on site. The...

The Art Of The Travel Portrait

My 25 years of traveling on the back roads of the world has led to countless adventures, experiences, and stories from the array of characters I have met along the way. As a documentary photographer...

Travel photographers are a unique breed. Some go to the ends of the earth to get pictures that tell a story of a faraway land. Others stay relatively close to home, documenting the pulse of a major metropolitan city--which might be a travel destination to...

It's a safe bet that Daryl Hawk won't be looking for an assistant any time soon. When he leaves family, friends, and the commercial, portrait, and advertising photography business he runs out of his Connecticut studio in order to pursue images...

I'm a zoom lens man. I use zooms in virtually all my travel work, making exceptions when I need a macro or super telephoto shot.

This was not always the case. Back in...

Man has stood in awe of the aurora borealis, or "northern lights," for as long as verbal and written history in these latitudes has been kept. Some cultures viewed it as a sign of royal birth while others regarded the event as a precursor to war or saw these curtains of dancing light as ghosts of the dead. Athabaskan natives believed that if you whistle while watching...

This scene was the last of a very long and exciting photography workshop that I conducted in North Carolina. We were all pretty tired and a bit anxious to get home. We found the sky interesting at Table Rock and decided to work this as our final...

The Tip-Off

It's happened a great number of times that, while driving to a predetermined scene or location, I looked out of the window and exclaimed, "Man! Look at that!" The thought of stopping entered my mind and I even...

Steve Simonsen learned photography the hard way. Let's see, there was a rangefinder camera, lack of lens choices, hyperfocal distance focusing, and flash ratios, not to mention backscatter of light. All of this had to be dealt with and there was no...

This emotional rush that comes with first seeing a waterfall—and then the incurable urge to find as many vantage points as possible around it—compelled me to begin documenting these secluded, sibilant landscapes. You see, I have always loved waterfalls. When I was younger, my parents loaded the three boys in the family station wagon, “the boat,” as we called it, pointed...
