This is the nature of the photo business (read the link on Corbis stock agency taking more from photographers) – big business folk making money off of their power and off of photographer’s emotions.
Check out one of my most recent magazine covers on Bay Nature magazine, shot on Angel Island State Park in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area here in Northern California. It’s a beautiful small island with wonderful views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate, the East Bay as well as the Bay Bridge. There are wonderful hiking trails around the island and you can best access it from Tiburon (a beautiful town 45 minutes north of San Francisco, near Sausalito).
If you’re interested in the magazine, here’s their site: http://www.baynature.com/

FeFe, an Italian art publication, ran a few of my images for their issue themed “If you don’t play, you can’t go home” – a mix of my work from the California coast to the Florida Keys, southern Utah to western Wyoming.
Ya win some, ya lose some- it’s part of the deal as a commercial travel photographer in a very competitive industry….argh.
Just wanted to share my Via magazine cover in their November/ December 2007 issue. Via is the magazine for AAA (Automobile Association of America), one of the biggest travel magazines in the US (2-5 million circulation depending on the edition), but many aren’t as familiar with it since it’s not on newsstands.
During my time in Chicago last September lecturing at the BetterPhoto.com summit, I was interviewed by a fellow BetterPhoto instructor and photographer Ibarionex R. Perello- an experienced pro who produces wonderful images of people.
Ibarionex interviewed me for his Podcast “The Candid Frame” and did an outstanding job creating a free-flowing 36 minute discussion about the photo business and my career in it!
