Fujifilm U.S.A., Inc. has unveiled two high-speed digital photo printers for
professional photographers, the ASK-4000 and ASK-2000 Digital Printers. The
ASK-4000 and ASK-2000 Digital Printers allow studio, wedding and event photographers
to quickly and easily provide customers with 4 x 6 inch prints in 8 seconds
and 8 x 10 inch prints in 40 seconds. Onsite printing also eliminates the need
and expense of organizing, printing and mailing photos in the days following
an event. By simply connecting the printers to a laptop via a high-speed USB
2.0 interface, professional photographers can leverage the ASK-2000 and ASK-4000
dye-sublimation thermal transfer technology to produce prints onsite at client
events. Both printers feature color-correction software incorporating Fujifilm's
Image Intelligence™ technology, giving photographers lab-quality prints
regardless of their location.

Each month I surf the web, peruse reader e-mails, and read notes from photographers who want to see their sites in this department. You may be surprised to learn that a large percentage of people I ask to appear in Web Profiles don't respond or decline. Some...

During the summer of 2005, I attended a photography course in Prague in the Czech Republic. One Saturday we took a field trip to the town of Ceské Budejovice near the Czech border with Austria. There, one of my fellow photographers hurriedly summoned me to the scene of this moody photograph, which I have to come to call "Bike Boy." The boy played with sticks and...

Sooner or later, you're going to be tempted to buy a product that's labeled "refurbished." It will probably be the lower price that attracts you--after all, there is one and only one reason to even consider "refurb" and that is to save money. Depending on where you shop, you may be led to believe that the refurbished item is as good as...

We thought it would be fun to run some summer shots in these darker and colder days of winter, so we put out a call for photos in the fall and readers responded with images that made us yearn for those warmer days when we got home and it was still light enough to get some sand between our toes. Summer, it seems, is the time to get together with family and friends and spend some...

When I started my Bridge Project back in 1993 I had no idea how I would really begin to climb and photograph the 15-20 New York City bridges that I would need to complete it. It all started when I saw some fantastic images that John Sexton and Ron Wisner took from the top of the Golden Gate Bridge. I said to myself, where are there huge and more bridges than anywhere in the...

A while back I had two big production shoots, one in India, the other in Shanghai. For both, the clients were with me all day, every day, and it was interesting that when they got around to comparing me to other stock and travel shooters they'd worked with--I'd asked them, of course, just to see how my operation stacked up to others'--they told me that...
