As I continue to build my online stock archive, one of my goals is to meet the every growing demands of clients in need of original stock photography. Although some of my work is represented at Corbis, Getty, Redux, National Geographic Stock and Arcangel Images, the lions share is still here in my office, waiting to see the light of day. I’m trying to tailor the galleries to make it easier for picture researchers to find the images they need. As often as I can, I try to upload new photography and create categories that match the image searches I see pop up in my Google analytics. One such search is always green energy. This gallery of images dealing with green energy is just a start, but the images are (as of today) unpublished and recent.

Sure… every assignment isn’t full of the glory of a major feature story, but so often the smaller jobs are tiny gems of glimpses into worlds I otherwise would not have the pleasure of experiencing. To wit – an assignment for MIX magazine, which is now available through the Oregonian and some other outlets, was a great opportunity to get to know one of my favorite artisan bakers, Piper Davis, but in her home! She is clearly passionate about what she does for a living, and it carries over into a marvelous social life full of great friends and good cheer, as is evidenced in the Friday Night Dinner Party I shot last summer. Another little job for Budget Travel Magazine took me to Bandon, Oregon for their Best Small Towns issue, which is currently on the newsstands. I hadn’t been to Bandon for years and this assignment re-introduced me to the Southern Oregon Coast, one of the most beautiful places in the world. We were able to watch the sunset behind the monoliths that sit in the ocean at Coquille Point, one of the most dramatic landscapes on earth. Bandon is a town where now you may not only dive into freshly caught and cooked Dungeness Crab in view of the jetty, you can then stroll over to Coast Mist Chocolates and treat yourself to a magnificently hand-made cake, head to Tiffany’s Drug Store for one of the most impressive wine selections in the state, and finish off your day at Alloro Restaurant where you can enjoy a gourmet meal that rivals anything you’d get in a much larger city, but at a fraction of the cost. The last small job had big payoffs, in the form of a cover for Travel and Leisure which I blogged about in a previous post. We shot for 4 days on 2 islands and covered several properties and although most of the images don’t make it into the magazine, I’ll not soon forget the exciting experiences we had swimming with the dolphins at the Kohala Resort, snorkeling with a spotted eagle ray and hanging out with the turtles at the Four Seasons Hualalai, and being able to spend the night in a Diamond Head Suite at the Halekulani in Waikiki.

I am pleased to announce that I will be on board an upcoming expedition on the National Geographic Sea Bird as the resident photography expert in Baja for an adventure in the Sea of Cortez. We will be observing California Grey Whales in Bahia Magdalena on the Pacific side of Baja as well as hiking among the huge cactus, kayaking, watching migratory birds or swimming with sea lions around the islands off the coast of Baja in the Sea of Cortez. This trip will have many opportunities for observing wildlife with the added benefit of a team of naturalists and marine biologists at your disposal. It will be a magnificent adventure. I suggest that if you are interested, you book your itinerary with National Geographic Expeditions early! I will be on board for two departures: February 26th and again on March 5th, 2011, so come join us on board the National Geographic Sea Bird.
