Good design leads to happiness?
Even if you’re not a graphic designer like Stefan Sagmeister.
More entertaining than enlightening, watch all the creative twists and turns he takes.


Joyce Tenneson is coordinating a fascinating new book The View and she’s looking for compelling images and stories.

“I am editing a book tentatively called “The View”.   I have already received submissions from photographers around the world and would like to invite you to participate as well.  There is no research that explains why certain views affect people so deeply – this project will attempt to shed light on this intriguing visual-psychological phenomenon.

I would be most grateful if you would send me a high-resolution photo or two (no smaller than 8×10”) of a “view” that has affected you deeply.  I would also like you to send along 1-3 sentences describing, in your own words and in a simple fashion, what you felt or still feel when thinking about that particular scene.  Thanks in advance for your time and perceptions!

I’d like to make it clear that I am not looking for a simply beautiful landscape – a picture postcard – quite the opposite.  I am seeking to uncover what it is about certain places or photographs that, for some unknown reason, speak to our heart in an unforgettable and poignant manner.”

Spend A Little Extra Time

November 25, 2009 | 2 Comments |



Whenever you can, spend a little extra time before and/or after a workshop (or any business trip for that matter). You go to great places. You always want more time. You might want to see a location again. Or you might want to see a nearby location that you didn’t get to. Stimulating as groups can be, sometimes you want to work alone and at your own pace. There are so many reasons to spend a little extra time.

On the way back from my White Sands, New Mexico workshop my wife and I visited the Bosque Del Apache bird sanctuary. Every year this marsh is filled with Sand Hill Cranes, Snow Geese and countless other birds. They fill the sky at dawn. The sound of the waking birds is wonderful.

As you can tell, I’m no Arthur Morris (one of the world’s premiere bird photographers). I hear he was at the Bosque at the same time I was.

Photography is my favorite form of exercise. Sometimes you walk a lot. Sometimes you walk in challenging terrain. I love walking in dunes. It’s great exercise. Low impact. Lots of climbing. You lose your breath by the time you reach the top of a dune. But you’re so excited to make the next photograph, you forget about it. By the time you’re finished making the photograph, you’ve got your breath back. There must be another great picture just over the next dune. So you keep walking further. Just when you think you’re finished, you turn around and realize you get to do it all over again on the way back.
