In April 2013 I spent some time in Italy and the Tuscany region. An amazing area with lots of images. This is an image from a day in Rome. After the workshop a few of my friends and I spent a day shooting all over Rome. It was one of those picture perfect, weather perfect days. This a shot done at the Colosseum. What an amazing structure and to think it was constructed so long ago. If the walls could tell stories it would be fascinating.
New Zealand is full of surprises and most of them make great photography opportunities. This was just on of those cases. We were exploring a valley and came across this old stone wall with a tree at the end. This image was made with a 28mm lens on a Phase One IQ180.
People say it is never nice in Scotland, but I would have to disagree.I think they say that to scare off tourists. When I was there a year ago it was glorious. This is an image made at sunrise there. Beautiful light, no wind, perfect.
I am getting so excited as I will be visiting Antarctica again for the 5th and 6th times this winter. First trip will be in November and another at the end of January. This is one of time most amazing places in the world that anyone and especially a photographer can visit. I have also just booked 2 more workshops for January 2015 on the Luminous Landscape website. I’ll but links in another posting in the next few days. This will be an incredible trip. I do hope to publish a book on Antarctica after these next journeys. Also, you can visit my Antarctica Gallery page from the home page of this site under the Gallery Selection. This is an image of a giant tabular iceberg that we passed on one of our cruises in Antarctica.
This is just a fun shot. Made at the auto show that is right up the street from my house. I love shooting all the cars and trying to find unique angles and clever shots. Sometimes I shoot the engine, or the light paying on the curves of the car body. But, this one just looked fun.
Moab is a town you stay in and all around Moab are one of the country’s largest areas to shoot pictures. Amazing images abound around every turn. This is a photographer’s paradise as when the light decides to play you can get some great shots. This one was made in Arches National Park right outside of Moab.
I live in a nice community north of Indinapolis. It was voted by Forbes and Money magazines as the best place in America to live this year. I have now begun a personal project to photograph the community and show all the nice things about it. This is the first image of many that I’ll publish and eventually I will do a gallery on this sit of images. This a shot of the Perfroming Arts Center, a magnificent building inside and out that is at the end of my street.
While shooting a sunrise in Tuscany we stumbled onto an abandoned farm house. It was wonderful exploring it and I did come out with some nice images. This is an image of a room where I believe barrels were made. It was just about complete darkness. I used a Phase One IQ260 that is great for long exposures. the exposure was a long one and yielded a surreal image. I hope you like it.
Tuscany is known for never ending landscapes and rolling hells. There also numerous small towns and villages which offer unique and fun places to shoot. This is an image form a very small community. The wall just begged to be photographed. I love the expose brick and color of the wall plus the color of the window.
While walking and doing street photography in Sienna, Italy I saw these guys painting and after watching for a while saw an image forming. I shot a number of images in sequence at different zooms and positioning until I got the image I liked. Here it is. Simple and colorful.
