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...

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...

Like most photographers, I like to play around and constantly explore Photoshop. But I'm a businessman, too, so I need to be careful about how much time I spend in front of the computer. The more time I spend there, the less I have for taking photos and marketing my services, and that's where I make money. So I've always adopted the philosophy of getting it right...

Straddling the border between Argentina and Brazil, the Iguazú Falls are one of the world's most dramatic waterfalls. Comprised of 250 separate cascades, the falls tumble about 200 ft from the Upper to the Lower Iguazú River below. The combination of massive waterfalls, lush subtropical vegetation, and varied local fauna makes this UNESCO World Natural Heritage...

Rainbows have inspired legends of luck and good fortune. The beautiful colors are created in a simple process. Capturing a rainbow with your camera takes a bit of that good luck.

Rainbows require two simple ingredients--sunlight and raindrops. They combine at just the right angle to colonize a beautiful picture. The colors are formed when...

Here are a few things AJ Neste's learned about photographing surfers:
One, it's the singer, not the song. "The most important part of being successful at this," he says, "is knowing the surfer. It's not just showing up somewhere and taking photos of random surfers. You won't know their personal style."

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...

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...

Call it instinct or intuition, but something is telling you what pictures you should be taking. I call it the quiet little voice, and when it talks, I try to listen. The problem is, as we move on in our careers, or our hobbies, other voices take over, and we often stop listening, or listening enough, to the guiding voice that comes from within.

The Channel Islands National Park off the coast of Santa Barbara in southern California (a 1.5-hour drive west of Los Angeles) is my favorite national park in terms of photography, adventure, and natural history.

During the last Ice Age there was just one super island known as Santarosae. At the time, the channel crossing was roughly 5 miles across.

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.

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...

It's not every day that your eyes are opened to a whole new world, but that happened to me in August of 2004. A friend suggested we take our sons on a canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. Not one to miss an adventure, I quickly agreed and we made the arrangements. Although not a photography trip, I took my camera and tripod along...
