I usually make a prediction about what will happen in photography during the next year. But since I’m retiring and may not be around to be held accountable, I’m going to pass this year. Even though I may not be here much after November 2013, the site will continue with other contributors. I will stick […]

In the USA today we celebrate a holiday called Thanksgiving. I used to spend this day every year photographing Bosque del Apache. It’s odd not to be there. But that spot is played out for me. I have 59000 snow geese photos. I think I have that subject covered. I intend to do something I […]

Today is November 2, 2012. On this day, 14 years ago, I started Photofocus. We didn’t call things blogs back then. In fact we didn’t have any idea what we were getting ourselves into when a few friends and I decided to start an “online photography magazine.” Fast forward 14 years later, thousands of posts, […]

This is always controversial, and will be even more so this year, because my pick for Photofocus 2011 Photographer of the Year is none other than Trey Ratcliff. Is Trey controversial? Not in MY opinion. But as the current guru of HDR – and high dynamic range photography being controversial, I’m sure I’ll hear lots […]

Photofocus turns three years old today. Well sort of. Actually, I started Photofocus on Nov 2, 1998. I’ve written about photography online every day since. At times, I shuttered Photofocus and merely pointed the URL to other projects like MYCAMERATRICKS or APERTURETRICKS or a few other photo-related sites I ran or invested in. I started […]

I first encountered Conrad when he reviewed one of my “88 Secrets” books. He can be kind […]
