Don’t be blinded by the light

Posted on July 26, 2016

I once had to pose a bride in the most awful of settings: concrete, broken glass and a barbed-wire fence thrown in for just a dash of romance. As I desperately moved about looking for any spot that would complement her beauty, I passed through an area facing the bright, setting sun. Normally I would seek a Continue Reading »

Sleep In. Open Your Eyes.

Posted on May 20, 2016

Summer Teen Adventure Photography Camp Spend an exciting week (or two) learning photography, visual skills, concentration and creative expression in a fun, relaxed environment. We’ll walk the ramparts and spy Jerusalem from a new angle, hunt for animal portraits at the zoo and freeze the splash-action at the Teddy Water Park. We’ll visit a new Continue Reading »

What a joy it is to make photographs

Posted on May 10, 2016

It’s funny how you can look at a building a hundred times and decide every time that you don’t like it. Then one day you pass it by and the sky is bluer than you’ve ever seen it before and the roof tiles radiate a pure Tuscan orange and the stones gleam Jerusalem of Gold Continue Reading »

Overcoming creative doldrums

Posted on April 28, 2016

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.”        – Camille Pissarro A student asked a most intelligent and difficult question during a recent workshop: How do I continue to be creative with subjects or locations I’ve photographed many times already? Every artist, I think, faces this Continue Reading »

A million points of light

Posted on February 3, 2016

A million points of light, tiny drops of condensed fog, clinging to branches and brilliantly illuminated in the morning sun. This is another image in the “not what I set out to photograph” category, having arrived at the Sataf Nature Reserve several days too early to catch these trees in bloom. But I’d also place Continue Reading »

Seeing red with energy and passion

Posted on January 24, 2016

The Western Negev’s Ruchama Forest has become one of my “go to” spots for magical wildflower photographs over the past four years. The prolific, red “kalanit” (anemone) is predictably spectacular and the star of the Jewish National Fund’s aptly named Scarlet Spring Festival. Two important considerations if you plan to visit this region during the Continue Reading »

Nature’s Magnificent Fog Machine

Posted on January 13, 2016

I suppose having grown up in the San Francisco Bay area, I can lay claim to some expertise when it comes to fog. One thing I learned from my North Bay viewpoint, where I witnessed on countless occasions a massive fog bank roll in from the sea and bury an entire city, is that fog Continue Reading »

A swath of color in the Galilee hills

Posted on December 23, 2015

Much of what I have learned about the relationship between photographs and feeling – and the two are deeply connected – comes from the writing of Galen Rowell (1940-2002), a pioneer wilderness photographer and mountaineer. In an essay from his classic and still highly recommended book, “Mountain Light,” Rowell writes about his path to understanding that his Continue Reading »

The Negev Desert’s Extraordinary Coat of Many Colors

Posted on December 10, 2015

Suffering from cabin fever on account of the chilly weather and the morbid cold front that has lately descended upon the human race, I grabbed a friend and took a road trip last week to the warmer climes of HaMahktesh HaGadol, Israel’s “large crater” in the Negev Desert. At ten kilometers wide, the crater is Continue Reading »
