You know what I was thinking about while I was making the photographs you see here? I was thinking about instincts and intuition, about empathy, diplomacy, and psychology. You know what I wasn't thinking about? The gear--the camera, the lens, the tripod.

Excuse me while I step up onto my soapbox and rant a while.

I am so...

It used to be an adage of the trade that you judged the work of a professional photographer by looking at his contact sheets. The thinking was, anyone can get lucky now and then, but real talent will be revealed by the contacts. Today I guess you'd say, "show me the memory card," but you could be looking at it after all the losers have been deleted.

I don't take pictures in order to have a topic for this column, but what often happens is that I'm looking over photos from a recent trip or assignment and the idea is right there in front of me. Which is what happened this time. I'd just returned from Japan and was looking at some of the photos...

Last fall, I attended the Society of American Travel Writers' (SATW) annual convention in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The SATW is the world's largest and most prestigious trade association of travel writers, journalists, publishers, photographers, and filmmakers. I don't use the term...

I was talking with an editor friend of mine recently. He sees a lot of photographs--most of them taken by professionals, but some by amateurs. Every once in a while he's involved in judging amateurs' photos for online photo contests. He was telling me that many of the contest pictures he sees are...

Maybe it's the approaching holiday season that made me think of this--you know, books as gifts for friends and relatives who travel and take pictures--or maybe it's the impending move of my home and studio, and the cardboard boxes I've got lined up in which to pack my collection of books.

These days, and since 9/11, those of us who travel to take pictures have to think about airports a lot more than we'd like to, but I've found that with a little preparation and a lot of time, the airport experience needn't be an ordeal.

If travel photography were all about travel, I'd be a lot happier. For some of you, it probably is all about the experience of discovering new places, revisiting favorite ones, and creatively recording special moments and memories. But for me...

Driving to the lab a while back, I was listening to a National Public Radio show and a caller asked the guest, "Do birds fly for fun?" Great question, I thought. We know they fly for food, for safety and protection, for a change in geography...

I spent last October in China, shooting on assignment for four different stock agencies. It made me think about how my work is affected by changes in the world. Frankly, the stock industry has been dominated by what I call "Wonder Bread...
