Hanging from helicopter with
camera above the clouds in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I have been on assignment in over 180 countries on all seven continents. I've photographed most of the man-made monuments on our planet Earth, hopefully attempting to make the images both colorful & unique.
I saw this beautiful location and
talked a gentle Hindu woman
in pink to model for me.
It was worth it.
Immediately this Indian woman
image started selling for stock.
It sold often in travel books
and even a fashion spread.
Here it sold for a magazine cover
for Private Clubs, a publication with
some of the most affluent
readers in the USA and abroad.
The magazine entered this cover
into awards competition. It won
the Best Travel Magazine Cover
Photograph of the Year in
North America by the travel
industry. I was quite pleased.
I met this young Himba girl in the giant sand dunes of Namibia and she was fascinated by my Nikon cameras. So I gave her a quick lesson and then let her shoot her own pictures with my camera.
Here is her thrilled reaction after she shot and the digital image popped up for her to see. Such fun to share with someone who had never used a camera!
My assignment was to photograph fjords in Norway all the way past the Arctic Circle. What a great opportunity to see this fabulous area of the world.
I decided that too many tourists shoot travel "selfies". So here in the Sahara Desert of Morocco, I directed an Arab man to take a cell phone picture of his buddy with his beloved camel.
Talk about spectacular! One night in the Reykholt Valley in Western Iceland the sky spoke to the Earth. I have seen the Northern Lights before, but nothing like this 1 1/2 hours of color dancing in the sky.
Once in your lifetime, make sure you go and find the Northern Lights! You will never forget them...
I love the color & energy of these dancers spinning in Costa Maya.
I always enjoy the pace of Mexico.
I've always smiled at these jumping Masai warriors at the Masai Mara in Kenya.

From a church tower high above the colorful city of Bruges, Belgium. I love the play of colors in the roofs and umbrellas.
I stood knee deep in the fountain to get an unusual view of France's most famous site.
I wanted to look "through" the fountain and see this bull statue.
As I travel the world, I am constantly amazed at the power of women.
This environmental portrait of a young Maasai woman really shows her strength and determination.
I rented a helicopter in the
outrageous city of Dubai to shoot
the only 7-star hotel in the world,
the Burj Al Arab. It resembles a
large sailboat on a man-made island.
I had a lunch & a dinner there and
it was so expensive I could've
bought a whole new set of golf clubs!
I love making this Cuban man &
his classic car into a graphic
While in Cuba, I shot in Havana's
top boxing gym. Here one of
Cuba's best boxers is now the main
coach. Here the famous
"Black Prince" shows me a magazine
I even practiced boxing with
one of his boxers. Thank God it
was just for fun!
I always try to create unusual travel images that I shoot for magazines. I can still hear these young Cambodian monks laughing when we set up cartoons on our iPad.

Shooting in one of the most mysterious places on Earth, the Galapagos Islands.
This giant tortoise is probably 300 years old and weighs 500 lbs.

In one of the most primitive places
I've ever been, I photographed this
beautiful "First Wife" in the Omo
Valley of Ethiopia.
She was so pleasant and her smile
said it all. Belonging to the Bena Tribe,
she has a really tough life.
But she made my day better!
Sunset at the Great Pyramids of
Giza, Egypt. This is one of my
all-time favorite photographs.

I waited two days for the golden
color to be perfect.
I'm glad I waited.
This isolated church with the
majestic Dolomites in the
background is a special part of Italy.

The clay plates in their lips do
not seem to interfere with
computers, feeding babies, carrying
pots and even swatting all the
flies that they collect...
What a wild time it was!

I feel shooting in the Greek Islands is the best in the world.
What a fun day!
On assignment in Namibia with Kent Redding of Africa Adventures & Doug Singer of Jet Set magazine. We took really fast 4-wheelers all over the gigantic sand dunes.
Norie Quintos of National Geographic Traveler magazine and writer Mark Sissons were also with us, but they didn't ride with us that day. They sure missed a great time!

This man in Guatemala was just terrific to photograph.
One of the dumbest things I've ever done!

many pictures like this of the
students in uniforms.
They were excited to meet Americans.
After many trips to Cuba, I finally picked the right month to capture tobacco fields in harvest.
I was thrilled to have these stock images!
The color and flavor of the Cuban people are amazing to photograph.

not begun to dull their energy.
