Capture of the Day: Michel Giaccaglia

I’ve been following Italian photographer Michel Giaccaglia’s incredible posts on Facebook as he traveled recently on a workshop to India with Luca Bracali. He was kind enough to give me permission to share his  beautiful work here. The group was extremely lucky to not only find wild tigers, but with their cubs as well. According to Panthera, an international organization dedicated to conservation of 38 species of wild cats, as recently as 100 years ago, there…

Inspiration: Timothy Allen

Excerpt Originally published in Street Photography Magazine I spoke with British photographer and filmmaker Timothy Allen via Skype as I began my day on the West Coast of the United States and he was wrapping up his afternoon on his remote farm in Wales. Although he rarely photographs in urban settings, Allen is an expert when it comes to human culture and interaction. For two years, he shot 90 % of the landmark BBC series,…

Capture of the Day: Marcus Puschmann

Marcus Puschmann is a German photographer and blogger who publishes one of my favorite photography blogs, “Streets of Nuremberg.” He loves travel and enjoys sharing images and information about locations, settings & gear, which I appreciate so much. In a “small world” twist, I realized awhile back that Marcus was traveling to my home of the Pacific Northwest USA for work. He’s a mergers & acquisitions consultant “by day.” I hope to meet him in…

Capture of the Day: Gianluca Frosini

Italian photographer Gianluca Frosini shot this beautiful image of aurora in Iceland a few days before I joined the group in March. When I had the opportunity to try making some northern lights images myself for the first time, he was so helpful — finding a lens for me to borrow with an infinity focus setting focus and other features that made it much easier to me to capture the magic. I hope to go on…

Capture of the Day: Lou Jones

I caught up with Boston-based photographer Lou Jones last fall when I had a long layover in the city. In the past year, I’ve made a practice of interviewing at least one photographer or artist in every city I visit while traveling and I’m so glad I do. There’s no substitute for meeting these amazing artists in person. I did a Google search for street photographers in Boston, found Lou and tracked him down by…

Capture of the Day: Majid Saeedi

I met Iranian photographer Majid Saeedi at the Siena International Photo Awards event in Siena, Italy last October. I had already interviewed him for Street Photography Magazine, but it was an honor to meet him in person. I later wrote this piece about him for LensCulture: https://www.lensculture.com/articles/majid-saeedi-stepping-back-the-art-of-seeing As you’ll read in LensCulture, Majid has seen and been through a lot as a war photographer, a career he began at age 18. He is humble and soft-spoken and…
