Compose your scenes carefully, and the pictures you take today in Bhutan will not look that different from the ones you might have taken 100 years ago in another life (Buddhists believe in reincarnation). Walk through the dzongs (temple/fortress), experience a festival, hike to a remote location in the Himalayas. With a little imagination, and if you turn off your satellite phone...

The Reno Air Races are one of the city's most exciting events to see and photograph. These races have been run since 1964. This year's event will take place September 13th-17th at Reno Stead Field, eight miles north of town. It is a fun and successful happening with spectacular photo ops.

The Reno Air Races are similar to photographing a car race, with a few...

With a lot of my business coming from stock images, I travel at least six months of the year to take pictures related to travel, leisure, health, lifestyles, and business. Along with a lot of other stock and travel photographers, I've realized that the next frontiers for photographs are India and China. They are the emerging markets, and more and more photographs from those...

"Antarctica is a separate world...it is the presence of ice, from the first occasional fragment, escalating in shape, form and frequency, and finally dominating all else, that brings assurance of arrival in Antarctica."--Mark Jones, from Wild Ice: Antarctic Journeys (available on Amazon.com)

Taking pictures in Antarctica is easy. Point your camera...

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...

"An adventure is misery and discomfort, relived in the safety of reminiscence." --Marco Polo

With the wind chill factor it's 35ÞF below zero. I've only been standing on the small, snow-covered deck of a Frontiers North Adventures Tundra Buggy (a vehicle specially designed for polar exploration) for about 5 minutes, and already my...

Here's an e-mail I sent to a friend at the end of June last year:

"Hey, man, I just returned from Prague with some pretty cool pictures--all lifestyle shots of models. I went with no planning, no preproduction, no shot list, no schedule. And no earthly idea of what I'd come back with. It was three days of me, my camera, a local...

Alex Webb's world is a vision of color. Each place he visits offers a new and expressive luminance. His joy in color is apparent as he speaks about Latin America, the Caribbean, the particular color note to the brown of Africa in the early morning and late afternoon light and the red tones where the aluminum in the soil brings forth the warm hues of the earth.

Last year, I had the opportunity to photograph one of the world's most magnificent waterfalls. I traveled halfway around the world to capture the beauty and awe of this exotic and remote travel destination. I was filled with great photographic expectations.

When I finally reached the falls, I was actually quite disappointed--because there was hardly any...

When hiking or traveling with my SLR system, whether 35mm or digital, I prefer hand holding the camera to shoot nature and scenic views. Yet the value of a tripod is not lost on me, especially when confronted with the relatively long exposures required to capture a gracefully cascading waterfall or the warm glow of a sunset, or when employing a long lens with wildlife (especially...

We fly less than we used to. Terrorists don't worry us: realistically, flying is still far safer than driving. But we don't like the hassle, three-hour check-ins, restricted carryons, frequent x-rays, and endless security checks. In that sense, the terrorists have made us (and many other people) change...

"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...

As the sun sets above an ancient wooden bridge in Myanmar, three women push their bicycles along the weathered structure, the scene dramatically silhouetted against a brilliant orange sky.

Nevada Wier has photographed the old bridge many times during her multiple visits to Myanmar. Today she has captured her...

I love shooting outdoor portraits! As a matter of fact, it has become my "signature style." During my busy season, I may take over 400 outdoor exposures in a single day, so I'd better be able to do it well and do it fast. An element of my style is that I don't use flash. Many photographers do, and...

The compendiously named Album vom Rhein, vom Bodensee bis Duesseldorf, nebst Schwarzwald, Strassburg i.E., Karlsruhe, Heidelberg und Wiesbaden was published by Globus Verlag GmbH, Berlin, in the early years of the 20th century. It was probably a present to my great-grandmother Anna Schultz, nee Lecherling, who was...
