Well, it’s really only one city—New York—but the assignment called for Jon Ortner to capture images so different in spirit and approach that he might as well have been in two very different cities. There was not only a dual nature to the job itself but also something of a split personality to the building Jon was hired by developer J.D. Carlisle to photograph. Located between 29th and 30th Streets on Sixth Avenue, the 54-story structure in fact has two names and natures: from the street to the 25th floor it’s the Eventi Hotel; at the 26th floor it becomes the Beatrice and rental apartments.

A few months prior to the publication of Moose Peterson’s new book, Captured: Lessons from Behind the Lens of a Legendary Wildlife Photographer, he told me what to expect—or maybe, what not to expect. “It’s very unconventional,” he said. “I call it a romantic how-to.”

When I got the book I quickly figured out that the romance referred to Moose’s love of...

Here’s the thing: the dogs aren’t fighting; they’re playing.

When they run, jump, growl, and tussle in canine versions of tag, wrestling, and catch me if you can, it often looks like fighting. It can make people uneasy.

Michael Crouser took these photographs, which have been selected from his book, Dog Run, over a two-year...

The thing you’ve got to watch out for is the pilot who gets a little too into the photography.

It’s not a common occurrence, to be sure, but…“I had a pilot who almost killed me,” says Cameron Davidson, who spends a good portion of his time in the air shooting for clients and his own projects. “I have this strict rule:...

Sports photojournalist Dave Black wants his photographs to attract and hold your attention. And he wants them to be as different from the next guy’s as possible; the next guy is, after all, the competition.

In search of the big differences that make for high impact photographs, Dave uses ideas as much as he uses technology.Here are four examples of his thinking about...

Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present to you the noted nature and wildlife photographer Kevin Schafer, a man who may well serve as a role model for the pack rats among us; a man who faced his demons and trashed them.

Dear Mr. King,

After a while, showing wasn’t enough. Telling became the point.
