Istanbul, Turkey

I spent a week earlier this spring photographing Istanbul, Turkey. It was easy to walk 9 to 10 miles a day through its streets fueled by Turkish coffee, which by the way is an excellent antidote to jet lag. There is nowhere else like Istanbul. A cosmopolitan city with layers of  culture and ancient history […]

Times Square New Year’s Eve

These photos were taken shortly before midnight from the center of Times Square where I had the good fortune to ring in the New Year. Like most New Yorkers, if I am in town on New Year’s Eve, I typically stay home and watch the ball drop on television from the comfort of a warm […]

Hong Kong Bound

I’m heading to Hong Kong early next month. This is one of many favorite destinations to photograph and somewhere I have been more than a dozen times over the years as a photographer and journalist. My first visit was about six months after the handover from the U.K. to China and it was love at […]

Old Town Alexandria Assignment

In the late spring I traveled to Alexandria, Virginia on assignment for the tourism board, Visit Alexandria. Most of the time was spent photographing the historic Old Town, which George Washington once called home. An easy hop to the other side of the Potomac from Washington, D.C., Old Town, Alexandria boasts exquisite cobble stone alleys […]

Cote d’Azur Bound

I have back to back travels coming up starting with a trip to the Cote d’Azur followed by an assignment for a tourism bureau back in the U.S. (more on that later). There is a reason I like to head to head to Southern France and surrounds this time of year. The weather and light […]

NYIP Travel Photography Course

Some time ago I was asked by the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP) to contribute my expertise to a new travel photography course. I was delighted to take part and the course launched late last year. I wrote chapters on several aspects of travel photography including seeing the world with new eyes when capturing […]

World’s End

World’s End looks like the end of the world but not in the apocalyptic sense. A remote valley located between Llangollen and Wrexham in North Wales it is one of my favorite spots on earth – no people or buildings, stunning vistas and the cleanest air I’ve ever inhaled. A single lane road winds through […]

Day of the Dead Mexico

Mexico is always on my mind this time of year as Day of the Dead or Dia de Los Muertos takes place in early November. It is a mixture of pre-Hispanic and Catholic traditions. The belief is that the spirits of the deceased return for one night to be reunited with loved ones. Day of […]

Nonprofit Work

Part of the work I do is for nonprofit organizations. I enjoy collaborating with people who make a positive difference for others. Over the summer I took this image in the early morning on a perfect day in Central Park to be used in promotional materials for The Broadway and Ballet HERO Awards, a benefit […]

UK Bound

I’m heading to the UK for a few weeks. Time will be spent mainly in North Wales and surrounds. This trip is both personal and professional. I’m a half Brit and will be attending a family wedding. I have a large extended family there and look forward to seeing everyone. I’m also looking forward to […]
