Photographing the Everyday

Photographing the Everyday

Recently*, a podcast that I listen to fielded a question about staying photographically motivated. The question was – and I’m paraphrasing – “Help! I’m a photographer living in boring Nebraska. What can I possibly photograph?” The podcasters gave some advice, but I think there is more to say to this photographer who, like me, lives […]

Top Ten for 2017

Top Ten for 2017

It’s always hard to choose just 10 photos that represent a year’s work, but that’s precisely why I do it! Each year, I look critically at a year’s worth of photos, roughly 1200 published photos – ! it’s been a busy year – and decide on the best of the best. This year, I created […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

We’re going through a bit of a cold snap here in St. Louis. I don’t have any objection to photographing when it’s cold, but it’s a lot of effort to layer-up for a cold weather shoot and there aren’t a lot of people out-and-about. So, I’m not out making a lot of photos. In this […]

I Have a Theme

I Have a Theme

When traveling, I’m always on the move, seeing different places and people every day, but when photographing locally – within a hour’s drive of my home – I often see the same things again and again. Boring!! But not so! Repeating photography opportunities are not to be avoided. Returning to the same place or event […]
