Over the years I have taken casual portraits and snaps of my students during my photo workshops. Most were taken with a Lumix LX3, iPhone and Fuji X. I put together a small gallery of my favorite pictures:

One Workshop Opening - North Rim Grand Canyon - WAITING SPACE ONLY

North Rim Grand Canyon


Of course we will be shooting the Canyon itself on the photo workshop, but we will also have the opportunity to photograph nature, wildlife and many other things on the Kaibab Plateau.


We always shoot a variety of subjects on my workshops, not limiting ourselves to one genre.

I have ONE PLACE open for this October's workshop to the North Rim. It going to be another fantastic trip!

Elliott Erwitt Shares 12 Priceless Street Photography Tips



“Photography is an art of observation – it’s about creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary. You choose a frame and then wait until the right time for something magical to come along and fill it. " - Elliott Erwitt

Images of a Polar Bear Hunt - TIME - Ed Ou

Images of a Polar Bear Hunt



http://www.edouphoto.com



http://lightbox.time.com/2011/09/01/award-winning-photojournalist-ed-ou-talks/



"In his photos, Ou shows Inuit like Kelly Amaujaq Fraser, a young woman who was sexually abused as a young girl, and whose father killed himself when she was just a teenager. Ou shows a near-empty refrigerator, the product of a place where unemployment is in the double digits, and where a simple carton of milk can cost more than $10. Given those bleak conditions, it’s not surprising that the Inuit would hunt polar bears, as their ancestors did before them — albeit not with high-powered rifles. A single polar-bear pelt can fetch more than $10,000 on the open market, and the meat can feed dozens of hungry people. As distasteful as the sight of a butchered polar bear might be to outsiders, to the Inuit, it’s a matter of survival — and of culture. “They feel their ability to hunt is one of their last sources of subsistence,” says Ou.  “Before you judge them, you have to understand the socioeconomic factors driving this.”
