Tewfic El-Sawy’s The Travel Photographer Blog is my one my favorite online destinations. I have been following his travel
tales and multimedia slide shows and now after traveling with him in India, we have become good friends.
There is so much new technology available to photographers today ; keeping up with it is a challenge.
It ‘s so important to find the balance between the lure of additional gear and then learning how to use it and finding
the time for keeping up our sites and blogs while still stretching our vision and craft and actually getting to take pictures too.
In a field where we often work alone, it is wonderful to have other photographers to talk to…

I am back from India a few weeks now and after a side trip to California to celebrate with old friends, I am now in the process of creating a new body of work from the images. India is amazingly colorful with rich traditions and rituals. Taking the picture is always just the beginning of the process for me. I am now working in the digital darkroom, the same way I used to work in the traditional darkroom, to tone and create my Infrared images and shape the stories I want to tell.
Wishing everyone all joys of the season and all warm wishes for a wonderful New Year!
I am off to California for the holidays but all my friends and family where ever they are are in my thoughts . This image is from a performance of the Buglisi Dance Theatre , who I love to collaborate with.
Let us all celebrate wonder in 2010 !!
We all knew the best was yet to come. We had flown from all over the world to share this joyous occasion and we knew it was going to be all we dreamed and more…and it was. Justine was radiant as she stepped out of the car and made her way to the church and her Uncle Bradley looked resplendent in his uniform. Nicolo looked handsome and happy as he waited in the church with its golden frescos on the walls. Everyone was smiling and then the music and the Mass began…

Padua greeted all of us warmly; we had sunny skies and perfect weather every day. We stayed in hotels across the city-all wonderful. The Burnside and Magni family’s planed cocktail receptions and parties and left time for us to explore on our own. Everyone seems to eat pizza, pasta and gelatos every day and are all slim, chic and smiling. It is delightful to wake up here and pick up my new Canon 5D Mark 2 and explore its potential. The women here ride their bicycles in high heels…

” This was Venice, the flattering and suspect beauty – this city, half fairy tale and half tourist trap, in whose air the arts once voluptuously blossomed, where composers have been inspired to lulling tones of somniferous eroticism.” and where we began the romantic wedding celebration festivities of Justine Burnside and Nicolo Magni.

The Watermill Center Benefit each year is one of the most creative and entertaining fiestas of the summer. This year the theme was “The Inferno”.
Robert Wilson has created this haven of the arts in the middle of the Hamptons and has cultivated its grounds like something from a fairy tale. The mix of people, art,fashion and performance is a delight for the eye and for the camera-and the event was a tremendous success in raising money for the artist residence programs as well .
