Meluxine – Looking Inside

  Meluxine – Looking Inside You know when you’re having one of those days when everything you touch turns to gold? They don’t happen often, but when they do, the feeling is extraordinary. Meluxine and I were definitely having one of those days the first time we ever shot together. Even the, this probably won’t …

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: Writing at Cafe Adler, Berlin

    Before there were laptops, at least of the weight and battery life you could easily travel with. Long before smartphones. Before blogs. Before any of that, I always traveled with a little spiral notepad. I love to write when I’m traveling. Only the tools I use have evolved. I remember during one month-long trip, I …

Photo Daily: Castel dell’Ovo, Naples, Italy

  It was at the exact moment that I made this photograph of Castel dell’Ovo in Naples, Italy, that I made an important decision about how I would make my travel photography going forward. It was my first trip to Europe back in 1993. I was fortunate enough to be invited by a friend of mine …

Photo Daily: Mykonos Courtyard Arch

  A few days into my visit to Greece, I realized I had completely gotten into my own artistic head. And not in a good way. It was 1994 and only my second adventure outside of the States. It was the classic sophomore jinx. The second album curse. After my trip to Italy the year …

Photo Daily: Man Walking in Florence, Italy

  “Oh I love this one. Can I buy it?” My good friend Cathy was looking over some contact sheets of photographs I had taken in Italy. It was 1993, and I had recently returned from my first trip to Europe. For my introductory European travel adventure, I arrived with my, new to me, but …

Photo Daily: Bird Over Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy

  “I’d like a ticket on the 10 o’clock train to Venezia, please.” “Hmmm,” the man in the ticket window began. “I don’t think the train is going to Venezia this morning.” I stepped back from the window to look up at the schedule to make sure I hadn’t misread it. The man looked at …

Photo Daily: Stefanel Billboard at Quadrilatero Della Moda, Milan, Italy

I feel very at home shooting in the beautiful old chaotic street of Italy. Cities built for more simple traffic times. Narrow streets, intersecting and crisscrossing in wonderful patterns. And in a city such as Milan, with a certain urgency that doesn’t exist in the more relaxed Italian cities to the south. Make no mistake, …

Part 2 of 50: The “Highway” to Todos Santos

This is part two in a series of blogs on my recent artistic adventures in Mexico. Mexico Highway 1 turns into Federal Highway 19 in Cabo at the very Southern tip of the Baja Peninsula and heads North along the Pacific Ocean towards Todos Santos. In about five or ten years, it will be a breathtakingly lovely …
