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...

"How's it goin'?" a writer friend asked me recently. "Busy," I said. "That's great," he said. We talked some more, and what I ended up telling him was that one of the reasons things were going well and I was staying busy was that in addition...

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...

I'm not going to tell you that resort photography isn't work--it is; but I'm not going to tell you that it's all work. I like to go early, stay later and bring the family. By going early I get...

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 plan to the hilt. As a pro traveling on assignment or for stock shooting, I have to, but the problem is I often feel I'm overloaded with itineraries and details. I've got my shot list, my research reports, my source notes. I...

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...

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...
