The latest issue of PHOTOGRAPH is, as it always is, gorgeous. Featuring articles, portfolios, and interviews with  some truly talented photographers. Be inspired by the dark art of Brooke Shaden, the surreal black and white architectural work of Susan Burnstine, the colourful impressionistic street photographs of Jim Kasson, and the beautiful Ethiopian portraiture of Clive Charlton, along with articles about visual flow from John Paul Caponigro, photographic rhythm from Michael Frye, and others, like Guy Tal, Chris Orwig, Martin Bailey, Piet van Den Eynde, Adam Blasberg, and me. It’s almost 250 pages long, ad-free, and beautiful, and I think it’s one of the best values in photographic education and inspiration out there.

As always, we’re offering you a 20% discount for the first week, as a way of saying thank you to our regular readers. Buy Issue 10 of PHOTOGRAPH before December 17, and it’s yours for $6.40 instead of $8.00.

And if you are a regular reader, would you do me a favour and tell someone about the magazine? We’re doing something different here and it’s readers like you who are our best ambassadors. We’d be grateful if you sent out a Tweet, or shared this on Facebook. Tell the world, friends.

Make It Now.

This moment, this light, in Cape Churchill last week: it didn’t last long. You can photograph it, or let it pass you by. But you may never see it again.  Last week I was sitting in a tundra buggy not photographing polar bears. The bears, driven by a months-long hunger were out on the sea […]

A World of Stories

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” — Jawaharlal Nehru A couple months ago an incredibly enthusiastic team of storytellers approached me about getting on board with a new platform they […]

Light , Gesture, & Color

   The first, and only time, I met Jay Maisel, he asked what kind of photography I did. At the time I was busy with humanitarian assignments and I told him so. He looked me in the eye, having just met me, and said, “You mean people pay you to do that? You’re an evil […]

Cape Churchill Polar Bears

I’m sitting in a Winnipeg hotel room, the sun’s coming up late into a bleak winter sky, and I’m surrounded by cold-weather gear, long lenses, and the sense of loneliness that comes after a long-anticipated adventure has wrapped up – that anticipation having been a companion for months. And now it’s over and I head […]
