Last fall, I attended the Society of American Travel Writers' (SATW) annual convention in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The SATW is the world's largest and most prestigious trade association of travel writers, journalists, publishers, photographers, and filmmakers. I don't use the term...

I was talking recently with a writer who asked me what my favorite place to photograph in all the world was. I answered without hesitation. "Asia," I said. But when he asked why, I said, "You know, I'm not sure."

This column was going to be about something else. The idea was originally to talk about day trips in Europe, but as I started choosing photos to illustrate the subject and taking notes on the equipment I'd used, it occurred to me how few lenses I...

I first heard the phrase 10 years ago, and I don't remember exactly who said it, but he called them "the big littles," and he meant people positioned to appear small in the midst of sweeping landscapes. You know, the opposite of what...

A few months ago I wrote about my assignment to photograph on the Caribbean island of Curacao for the island's tourism board. It was my first time in Curacao, so the board's slogan for their advertising was perfect for me:...

Black and white travel photography? As a category, I don't think it exists. My clients aren't calling for it; my stock agency isn't asking me to supply it. But it represents about 10 percent of the...

I call it "total coverage"-bringing back the photos that tell the story of a place, an event, a personality. The concept comes from the days, over 15 years ago, when I shot film and video and worked through what was practically a check list of shots that...

Since this is the magazine's annual issue devoted to lenses, let's talk about the lens most likely to be forgotten or ignored, the one that practically no pro pulls out of his bag, but which is my favorite: the 50mm f/1.4. You know, the paperweight.

Watching out for and photographing the ordinary was something I always did and still do; it's instinctive for me. But it wasn't until I read Focus on Travel by Alan Rokach and Anne Millman that I realized that...

Go to the newsstand, pick up a magazine--any one will do--and take a look at the ads that feature people. What are they doing? More important, what are they feeling? What emotions are they expressing? I'll bet that the emotional content of the photograph...

I don't take pictures in order to have a topic for this column, but what often happens is that I'm looking over photos from a recent trip or assignment and the idea is right there in front of me. Which is what happened this time. I'd just returned from Japan and was looking at some of the photos...

"How's it goin'?" a writer friend asked me recently. "Busy," I said. "That's great," he said. We talked some more, and what I ended up telling him was that one of the reasons things were going well and I was staying busy was that in addition...

If travel photography were all about travel, I'd be a lot happier. For some of you, it probably is all about the experience of discovering new places, revisiting favorite ones, and creatively recording special moments and memories. But for me...

I'm not going to tell you that resort photography isn't work--it is; but I'm not going to tell you that it's all work. I like to go early, stay later and bring the family. By going early I get...

I hadn't planned on writing about travel portraiture; after all, we've discussed it directly or peripherally a few times before. I was leaning toward some how-to, application-type things--photography at resorts and on cruise ships, or maybe how to tackle...
