While I was standing around in the jardin, talking with a couple of my classmates/new friends, Willie and Karen, I noticed, first, the arrival of an older Mexican gentleman moving very slowly, deliberately with a cane. I took a shot from the waist. A few moments later, he made it where he wanted to sit down. I continued my conversation with Willie and Karen, had another look in that direction, and there were two. I hadn’t seen the arrival of…

Pretty much all day on Sunday it was a drab, ho-hum kind of day. Gray skies, flat light, threatening rain, but never really happening. That didn’t stop me from wanting to photograph, though. I set about with that task but, after a short while, became a little disillusioned with the whole thing. I wanted some light, some shadows, not the really boring flat light that I was getting.

It’s a way for us, as photographers, to donate a bit of our time and expertise, and joy of photography to those less fortunate. We show up, take the photos, make the prints, and give them away.

You’ll start to malfunction for ‘no apparent reason’. You’ll endure scrapes, bruises…

Be sure to include a brief letter about why you want to participate in the Missouri Photo Workshop, a…

A few weeks ago, National Geographic announced the launch of their blog, Proof. Proof is a blog featuring one of their photographers, every day. The photographer will make a short video, or perhaps write a short article about a certain aspect of their photography work. I shoot 30,000 or more pictures per year and out of those, maybe 3 or 4 of those are keepers … but those 3 or 4, they’re pretty good! … You’re by yourself all the…
