I want to give a shoutout to a fantastic photo organization, the National Press Photographer's Association, or NPPA. It's the leading voice advocating for the work of visual journalists, including still photographers, television videographers, editors and students in the journalism field. It's the first organization I joined when I started my photo business in 1978.

Everyone who cares about facts and truth in our current media landscape needs to support organizations like NPPA. Increasingly journalists are being harassed and persecuted around the world. To see the amazing work of photojournalists, please visit the NPPA website.

Photo of participants in a Leadership Adventure exercise as part of a Transformation Residency at the University of Michigan Stephen M Ross School of Business. Students participated in physical challenges to build teamwork, trust and personal accountability; lessons they hopefully take back to their own careers and companies. Just one image from my September assignment for the internationally known business school in Ann Arbor.


Photojournalism continues to put a powerful spotlight on disasters and issues affecting people's lives. Photos can have a visceral impact that can move individuals to further investigation and action. Here's a sample from the World Press Photo competition.

A PetaPixel story takes the march of photo technologies to a new high. Making a photo by just describing it. Holy cow!

Women photographers continue to get the short end of the stick... in wages, in opportunities, in every way. Read this excellent summation in PetaPixel

Damn Putin. Shocking, horrific. This dead-eyed evil man is committing mass murder in Ukraine.

Andrew Young speaks to students and teachers at a charter school in Detroit in December of 2021. Civil rights activist, former mayor of Atlanta and United Nations ambassador, and close confidant of Martin Luther King Jr, Mr Young is 89 years of age.

Moses Anderson was the first black bishop in the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit.  He died in 2013.

Bishop Anderson traced his lineage to Ghana in West Africa. I accompanied him on one of his visits to the country in 1990, when he was honored by being named a tribal chief in the Ashanti tribe. Here he shares a laugh with nuns during his tour.

I've been a member of ASMP since 1989.  Hands down the finest advocacy organization for photographers in the world. If you need guidance on how to make your fledgling photo business grow, go to the ASMP website now. It's been the most valuable investment I ever made in my business.

It's not enough to take pretty pictures. You need a photo business education. You need ASMP.
