A Portrait Of Oscar, The Magnificent Wiener Dog

It was supposed to be a family portrait … But then Oscar, the Magnificent Wiener Dog, stuck his nose in and now it’s all about him. Spontaneity always finds its way into the studio — that’s why I love shooting there so much. It’s creative and playful. I’m spending a lot of time in the studio these days. So if you’ve ever thought about getting a portrait of your family or yourself, now might be the time to do it. […]

Balinese Fishermen Return From The Night At Sea

After a night fishing in the Bali Strait, the Balinese fishermen pull their fishing boats ashore and unload their catch. If you sit on a Balinese beach in the morning, you can watch the fishing boats, known as jukung, sail ashore. Upon arrival, families and friends haul the boats out of the water and unload the night’s catch. Although the catch was small on the day I visited, they seemed happy and were eager to show me their boats and their […]

Possible Worksite Violation

Check out these two images taken in Yangon (Rangoon), Burma. Barefoot, wouldn’t you know standing on old, weathered wood. I couldn’t stand to watch them any longer, so I don’t know if they made it down safely. Hopefully they replaced the bulbs with long lasting ones. You can check out more images from Burma here.

New Feature Gallery — Balinese Dance Troupe

In November 2010, I photographed a series of Barong dancers and musicians in Bali. You can find a collection of these images in the feature gallery, located on my homepage. Like many traditional dances, this one tells a story of good and evil. Good prevails. Like their wardrobe and makeup, the dance is a sublime display of intricate elements. From their feet and hands to their head positions and eye movements, Balinese dances are captivating. A Balinese orchestra, with Gamelans […]

Balinese Fisherman

In the pitch black of 3 am, I headed offshore with a fisherman named Anom. We went straight out into the Pacific for two hours to put his nets down in the dark. It’s important that this is done before daylight so that the fish don’t see the nets. Just after sunrise, he hauled up his nets to bring in the day’s catch. He caught a few things that day, mostly mackerel, but barely enough to pay for his fuel. […]

Buy Japanese Prints, Profits To The Red Cross

Earthquakes, tsunamis and nuclear disaster are the news out of Japan these days. As we watch the plight of the Japanese people in quiet desperation, I wanted to highlight the beauty of this inscrutable country by displaying some new images that I took years ago. I will be making a donation to the Japanese Red Cross and if you can help, I will donate all profits from the sale of Japanese prints to the Japanese Red Cross for the next […]

Snow Show

It just keeps falling … Record amounts of snow are accumulating up on Mount Washington this year.  La Niña may be the cause, but whatever it is the mid-mountain snow base at time of writing is 699cm. Whoa. You can view my gallery of images here. If you look carefully at some of the photos, you will see that there are actually cars and houses under all that white stuff. Hope you like the show.
