I was looking for an access path to the ocean to shoot the sunrise one brutally cold morning in November at Seabrook Beach, New Hampshire. The temperature was so low my eyes were tearing up so I sat down on this bench to unload my gear and blow on my hands.

When the sun came up a calm rushed over me. I got so caught up in the amazing light of the sunrise that I put my camera...

I count this image among my best not because of the "aha" I felt as I dashed across a busy Tucson, Arizona, street before the sun could move another inch. It was only after I had several shots stowed safely in my Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II that I realized what I had actually found.

The first aha was seeing those nine "wanderers in the desert" from...

I promised myself while on this cruise I would take more of the local color during stops at the ports. The photos I wanted to take were going to tell a story, not about the scenery but about the people. Trouble is, a week...

I had been wandering through side streets of a rural Chinese village in the farmlands south of Beijing hoping to find interesting subject matter for documenting the contrast between the "old" and "new" China when I came upon what I initially thought was a deserted military compound. On further inspection, I noticed this multicolored wall painting depicting...

The Photographer's Travel Guide

I have had the good fortune to travel to Ireland on several occasions. I spied this Volkswagen hiding behind a tombstone almost by accident. It was a chilly (cold, actually) November day and I had spent several pleasant hours...

My commute to and from work took me past this massive tree nearly every day for three years. The tree always commanded my attention, particularly during the winter months when its scraggly, barren limbs were highlighted by the latest snowfall. Though the tree had been dead for many years, it continued to stand as the patriarch of the park. A long-abandoned school remains on the park’s...

Sometimes our lives are so hectic that the peace and tranquility we crave escapes us. As I was walking around a very busy little town, I noticed this scene in a churchyard and thought that it was a very calming area in the middle of all the hustle and...

It was my third day in Paris...I was exhausted from miles of walking, the temperatures had dropped to near freezing, and all I wanted to do was get back to the hotel. I had seen this advertisement numerous times around the city but, for some reason, had not...

I encountered this gentleman while making a wildlife documentary film in Tanzania, East Africa. His Masai village or "manyatta" was near the famous Olduvai Gorge on the Serengeti Plain. Even though the whole village was well compensated for the privilege of shooting still pictures and videotapes, this warrior still seemed to maintain a healthy suspicion of the...

It is a popular belief that the predator cats of Africa do not swim and avoid water. Several extremely rainy years in the mountains that feed Botswana’s Okavango Delta region have shown that to be a great misconception. Water has overflowed the usual waterways of the world’s largest inland delta to cover grasslands and roadways. Yet, the wildlife of Botswana continues to thrive.
