You might think in the digital age that anyone out there hawking traditional portraiture would be a dinosaur, pleading for people to have their portraits done. After all, it's now possible to put people on the moon without them setting foot out of the studio. You would be wrong.

There are portrait photographers out there who command high fees who have clients...

A few short years ago, many writers and photographers, myself included, were of the opinion that in a few short years film would be history, with the exception of a few "niche" areas of photography, like, say, infrared. Now that I've been...

I feel most at home in the
studio. Everything I need is right there. Right where it should be--and
right when I need it. If it's raining outside, and I want it sunny
in my studio, it's sunny. And if it's sunny outside and I

Fall came late last year to Wisconsin. Either that, or my annual Whitewater class was earlier than it has ever been. Usually, we have autumn color. This time we had sunshine, rain, and a lot of fun (nothing new!). Through it all we learned...

Photo enthusiasts often ask me, "What's the most important accessory I need for professional-quality outdoor people pictures?" I reply, "A flash unit, of course." Then they ask me for my best tip for using a flash. My advice: Think flashy...

When the weather is nice outdoors, nothing beats an informal portrait. You do not want to shoot in the direct sunlight because your subject will be squinting. However, if you can find a shady spot under a tree, both you and your subject will be much happier.

So, how can you take the best portrait outdoors and still compete with the sun? The answer is usually right on top of your...

Portraits can be created outdoors in just about any environment. The key is to learn how to make just about any lighting situation work for you. Sometimes, when you choose your background you might find yourself photographing your subject in direct...

So, what does a professional photographer do with his afternoon off? Take pictures. I'd never have believed it, myself, but going to our local art show in downtown Sarasota with a 35mm camera in hand allowed me to see more, possibly, than many of the...

I used a fixed-lens camera for many, many years--even after I'd become a professional photographer. Then, someone told me that I could never be a professional until I had a camera on which you could change lenses. I remember being glad that my...

Wedding & Portraiture

I tried it. I liked it. I loved it and so did Kodak. They used this test photograph of mine recently in a 30/30 size to display the quality of their new Portra 800 film. It's also available in 35mm, 120 and 220 rolls.
