Top-level sports photographer Andrew Hancock was kind enough to talk with me last week about his approach to Super Bowl 50 and how he deals with the logistical side of managing remote cameras, memory cards and data transfer during and after the game. We see plenty of sidelines action and the resulting images from sports shooters; however, we rarely get a peak into the hard work and planning that goes into making those opportunities possible.
In this video, I sit down with Allan and Lisa Mueller of ALM Photo to talk about their work (both free and paid). We also dig into to:
- When, why and how much free work you should or shouldn’t take on
- How to price your photography services
- Mirrorless cameras in professional work
- The desire for better low light performance in cameras

In this video from Phaidon Press, Taking My Time photographer Joel Meyerowitz discusses some deep concepts in his street photography about how he isn’t necessarily interested in photographing a singular thing but rather the relationship between things.
He also emphasizes the importance of the Leica rangefinder, which allows him to see both what’s in the frame in one eye and the context of the external world surrounding that frame.
Stephen Spielberg is signed on as director for the upcoming film It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, which is based on Pulitzer Prize-winning wartime photographer Lynsey Addario’s memoir of the same title. Jennifer Lawrence is set to star as Addario in the film, which is planned for release sometime in 2017. [Read more…]
This video shows off the Joe McNally Photojournalist Exhibition at the Monroe Gallery of Photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibition is a 30 year retrospective of Joe McNally’s diverse and dynamic images.
In the video, Joe shares his thoughts on the prints in the gallery and what it means to see some of the images as prints for the very first time. This is the last week of the show, so if you are in the Santa Fe area, be sure to stop by and see this exhibit.

This short video of Gregory Heisler packs so much wisdom and advice for photographers into a little more than 5 minutes. You can’t watch this video and fail to take something away from it.
If you want to hear more from the man, Heisler also has a recent book called Gregory Heisler: 50 Portraits, in which he breaks down 50 of his portraits and reveals his creative and technical processes for each shot.
