Hello Los Angeles! … But first … Meluxine in Kauai

Nothing like running out on stage, yelling, “Hello Los Angeles!”, dropping the mic and jumping on a plane to Hawaii. But that was pretty much the beginning of June for me. Setting up shop in LA before heading to the stunningly gorgeous island of Kauai, consisted mostly of me unboxing the barest of essentials, putting …

Photo Daily: Plaza Lamy 502

  It was back in 2002 that I took my first domestic cross-country train trip. I was traveling from Chicago to San Francisco to speak at Macworld. And I decided it might be interesting to do it by train. And it was. And a little bit amazing too. I had a small sleeper compartment for …

Photo Daily: Glass Runway North Seal River Manitoba Canada

  200 miles south of the Arctic Circle. Half way to the North Pole from Chicago. And it only took four different planes to get here. Each getting increasingly smaller as we flew further north. This was my second work trip to distant points on the top of the globe I never imagined I’d ever travel …

Photo Daily: Morgan Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris

  Packing light isn’t really an option when you’re heading to Paris to photograph beautiful couture. We arrived with six suitcases full of fashion. An occupational hazard. But the locations are inspiring and that’s why you lug a crazy amount of clothing and camera gear with you. There’s nothing like shooting in Paris. We made …

Photo Daily: Flight Fishing

  Any of you Gentle Readers who know me well, if asked to describe me in a word, would probably not volunteer, “Outdoorsman,” as one of your initial descriptives. In fact, that term probably wouldn’t even show up in your top 25 list. Yet here I was. Way up in the northern tip of Saskatchewan, …

Photo Daily: Gondolier Steers, Venice, Italy

  As much as the lure of a gondola ride beckons when I’m Venice, it’s actually a lovely walking city as well. Picking a direction and exploring the narrow walkways is how I came upon this beautiful scene of a gondolier ferrying his passengers while I was walking over one of the many delightful bridges. …

Photo Daily: Looking Down on Montmartre from Sacré-Cœur Basilica

  300 stairs. Morgan and I looked at each other tentatively. We both knew I get a little claustrophobic climbing up into the increasingly narrow basilica stairways of beautiful cathedrals. The passageways seem to close in on me and I always fear that I’ll be going up and meet another group coming down and there …

Photo Daily: Treetop Eiffel Tower

  I’ve often said that one of my favorite things about wandering Paris at night is the surprise of the top of the illuminated Eiffel Tower suddenly appearing in my path. I was walking along the Right Bank around midnight one evening when it magically appeared over the treetops. Paris is a wonderful walking city …

Photo Daily: Meghan Claire at La Presa de Santa Ines

  One of the best things about shooting on location is finding the locations. I was in Baja, Mexico a few years ago and had scheduled a shoot with the lovely and adventurous Meghan Claire. We decided to head out of the little town we were staying in and find a large dam we had …
