FORZA MAGAZINE TIFOSI
Congrats to PNW Ferrari club member William Howard for his feature in the latest Forza Magazine.
1000,000 miles in a Ferrari 458 that’s only eight years old means you drive it every day! Check out my photos and text of him and his car in Forza on the newsstand today.
If I wasn’t previously booked, I’d attend the annual Ferrari Club USA meet in Oregon next month here.
That’s how the front line describes the current Covid situation here in Washington state, where many still wear masks indoors for safety.
That’s good news considering how the USA was impacted by this horrible virus. Still, after traveling to Florida, where masks are rarely worn, I’m glad to be back home, although I really wish I were in Cabo on the beach.
AMELIA ISLAND CONCOURS AND PCA WERKS REUNION
Today, I’m on assignment in the hottest spot to be in the classic car world. Amelia Island, Florida.
Thanks to the Porsche Club of America for sending me here to cover the event and complete some stories for Panorama Magazine.
These are the focal lengths that many lifestyle and automotive art directors like to see used in your photo submissions. That’s because these normal to telephoto images tend to be flattering for portraits and cars, and they work well in print or on the web. Continue reading “”
ERNST HAAS – HIS 100TH BIRTHDAY
Ernst Haas, the pioneer of color photographic essays, would have been 100 years old today.
He created the first magazine color photo-essay in LIFE in 1962. He became the first color photographer to have his own exhibit at MOMA shortly thereafter. He made this photo of a fall leaf in 1964.
A very good friend of mine, and a fellow student of Haas, Arthur Meyerson, posted this on Facebook today. I was there at the Ernst Haas Worksop in Japan with Arthur in 1984. I couldn’t have said it better.
There’s always more stuff to acquire. So, how much is enough?
Very few people ask this question of themselves.
Van Life folks do it every day. Check out the film Nomadland!
Long before Instagram, my wife and I lived that mobile dream for awhile. It was a good time camping on and off the road for eight years. My Steinbeck’s America book project resulted from that experience:
As a full-time pro for over 30 years, the gear I take on assignment today depends on what is needed. Contrary to what it might look like, I prefer to work with the minimum amount of equipment. Continue reading “”
FROM 50 MM TO 28 MM
It’s interesting when you think about it. In the 1950s and before that, people saw the world with what artists called a “normal” perspective. It resembled a 50 mm focal length composition on a full-frame 35 mm format camera.
You see that perspective when you travel to European cities. The streets and buildings are narrow and complement that field of view. Continue reading “”
IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF GOING
From this day forward, all images on this site will be 550 pixels or wider, so you can better see the differences in quality.
“Actions speak louder than words.”
I’ve always believed in that. Yet, in today’s world, more and more, made up images and words are often believed over actions that are actually true. Continue reading “”
If you really want a change of experience, and you live near Seattle, one option is to take a 4-hour trip east to the wheat fields of the Palouse – but don’t delay. This year’s crop will be cut in a couple of weeks. Continue reading “”
HAVE A SAFE 4TH OF JULY
This candid photograph of an American veteran (and a cat hiding under the truck) was made along Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona with a digital Leica M and a 50mm lens. Continue reading “”
RETRO VINTAGE STILL LIFE
Now’s a great time to photograph still lifes indoors.
For this photo I chose a camera I purchased in 1979. It’s a 1958 Leica M3 and my first rangefinder. Before that I bought my first SLR, a Canon AE-1. Those cameras started me down the photographic path. Continue reading “”
