Want to win friends and influence people so you can get good people pictures in foreign lands? Lean some magic tricks and share them. Look at the faces of these Buddhist monks in Bhutan. They loved my coin trick. Afterward, they let me photograph them.

I am working on my 37th book - this one for Focal Press. Super excited. Here's a shot of me working on book #1 (Canon AE1) in 1979, and a shot of me after my Rhythm of the Reef book was published (and won the Ben Franklin Award) in 1995. My Focal Press book will be published next year. Info will be on my site: www.ricksammon.com.

I can't wait for my Iceland workshop in October with +Tim Vollmer . All my workshops are listed here: http://ricksammon.com/

This is one of my favorite panos. It leads off the pano chapter in my upcoming Focal Press book (which will be published in 2015)
