Just another day at the office

Lately there’s been quite a bit of doom and gloom out there in terms of our future as photographers, particularly for us magazine folks.  In preparation for transferring data to a new computer, I was perusing my iPhoto library and found a few production snaps taken from assignments.  As much consternation the modern age of photography brings, I am still grateful for the incredible moments I’ve had throughout my career.  Just thought I’d share a few of these, if only for a reminder that it’s great to be able to make a living doing what I love.

  1. Susan:

    Hang in there and your not alone.

    My belief is that when we come out of all this, photojournalism will be stronger for it and we will both create and have more respect for our craft.

    As long as your vision is perceptive, fair and that of compassion for your subject…we’ll come out on top.

    After 35 years of employment as a photographer and editor I have faith in out future.

  2. OMG. These are priceless! You’re such a goof.

    If I know you, you’ll continue to have fun and gracefully evolve as needed to continue doing what you love. You are one resourceful image maker — still or moving.

    I want to know how he stays at the bottom of the pool. Muscle mass?
