So you want to create stirring nature documentaries. You could go the National Geographic way and risk trench-foot, snakebite and more in pursuit of the scenic wild. Or you could take the Boris Godfroid route: Schlep a few hundred pounds of bricks into a spare room, cover it with moss and other forgiving plant life, and let nature run wild in miniature.

I have sat staring at the computer monitor for the last hour and words refused to appear on the screen. Even in times of stress I can write out a quick blog, but the current situation with Aaron Hernandez has proved tough.

BTS: Photographing Breathtaking Vistas in Venezuela with Philip Lee Harvey

On November 18, 1933, aviator Jimmie Angel became the first American to catch a glimpse of the tallest waterfall in the world — a natural wonder that would eventually be named for him.

Photographer Philip Lee Harvey wanted to see these places for himself, and so he followed in Angel’s footsteps, photographing the breathtaking sights along the way. The behind-the-scenes video above shows you how that adventure went down. Read more…

Younger photographers may not understand it, or even feel the same way, but for photographers of my generation, your studio was not just a place to take photographs — it was a reflection of you. It told the world who you were. If you didn’t have one, then you weren’t really a photographer!

With the NBA Conference playoffs nearing completion and the Spurs already a lock for the Finals, I got a call from Brad Smith, the Director of Photography at Sports Illustrated, asking if I could quickly get to San Antonio.

Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker rarely if ever pose together, but had reluctantly agreed to pose for an SI cover which would come out a couple of days later, to coincide with the beginning of the finals.
