Pet peeves: 1) Adventure travelers who "want to shoot for the North Face company, and trade their services for sleeping bags." 2) When photographing a person, "it's very uncomfortable when another person comes along and says, ‘Oh, that's a great shot, I'll shoot it too.' . . . You're trying to get eye contact, and the eyes are going all over. Happens quite often."
Advice for travel photographers: Don't let the stock agencies dictate your style. "You can't just follow the latest trend," he says. "At various times things fall in and out of fashion." Also: "It takes some time to really see which [images] are the best of the bunch. You find which ones have common appeal to people, [but it] may be obvious only a few years later."
Favorite vacation spot: "There is no true vacation for a travel photographer."
