The Travelling Photographer

In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books, SEE THE WORLD, Travel by David12 Comments

“Wherever you go, you take yourself with you.” ~ Neil Gaiman In Hokkaido last month one of the guys I was traveling with made an astute observation, that no matter where we travel as photographers, we will always have the same creative struggles as we do at home because “we take that same photographer with us wherever we go.” Indeed. …

Vision is Still Better

In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books, Vision Is Better by David2 Comments

Several years ago I was asked if I’d consider doing something like a yearbook for my blog – a curated compilation of the best stuff, minus the posts where I introduce a new book or workshop – so that people could access my stuff offline in an easy-to-read kind of way.

PHOTOGRAPH, Issue 8

In Craft & Vision, e-books, PHOTOGRAPH Magazine by David2 Comments

Now, with Issue 8, we’re celebrating two years with another beautiful issue, beginning with the work of my friend Ami Vitale, an exceptional storyteller and National Geographic photographer. We’re also featuring the fine art landscapes of Charles Adams, the …
