I made a modest suggestion for my stay in Milan. How about we get together a fashion shoot in the fashion capitol of the world? Something simple, small flash, with Lastolite light shapers, seeing as my overall stint there was at the behest of Manfrotto? Well, say the word “fashion” in Italy, or even (tremble), …

Here we go again! A January blizzard hitting NYC. Memorable pic from +Joe McNally many years ago, but could be a scene from our neighbors in NYC and NJ today with our first major winter storm in the Northeast.

A long time ago, on 7th Avenue. I’m probably jinxing things here, because it hasn’t been too bad a winter in NY–so far. But man, I used to pray for bad weather. I was living in the city, in the Hotel Beacon, old school, back when the city was broke and the west side of …

Might finally be the weekend to get out the skis in the Northeast! +Joe McNally chose an unusual, but amazing, vantage point for Legendary Olympian Donna Weinbrecht to perch on the edge of the #EmpireStateBuilding leading up to the 1998 Winter Olympics.

Feels about the right time to post a pic about Siberia on what was a really cold, blustery day here. From +Joe McNally and a shoot in Siberia from the film days. Amazing contrast of colors when molten slag from nickel production gets dumped on the permafrost in Siberia. #russia #siberia

I had never seen this photo by +Joe McNally of legendary composer #LeonardBernstein until recently. I think it's such a wonderful example of engaging your subject behind the camera.

Lots of news lately about the roiled CBS-Viacom media empire, with longtime top dog Sumner Redstone exiting his chairmanship for reasons of failing health. Photographed Mr. Redstone for a Forbes cover years ago, and he was quite the character, as he is often depicted in the news. I knew I wanted this scene, with late …

A simple shot on the front porch. Great face for a portrait. Don Prince, Nashville stalwart. Traveled with the Charlie Daniels Band, which means the man can pick. So, great face, simple but eloquent location. First question: How do I not screw this up? First thought in my head was, let’s just keep this simple, …

When shooting the project that became known as the Faces of Ground Zero, I was using the world’s only Giant Polaroid camera, an eloquently balky beast the size of a one car garage. It was an amazing instrument, which rendered its subjects with intense detail, and dignity. Because the camera generated one-of-a-kind, life-size Polaroid positives, …

Occasionally, you can make radical changes in the feel of the light you bring to a subject not by making major moves in the physical position of the light, but simply in the power. That of course includes making one source more or less powerful relative to another source, but also the simple act of …
