Fine art photography is like writing poetry, taking an everyday language and asking it to do things that are a little less conventional. But photography as a whole is a shared construction, it is what we are willing to call photography—no one gets to...

When one of the world’s most “followed” photographers is available for a conversation, you make the time to talk with him, and when that photographer is acclaimed adventure, landscape, travel, and surf photographer Chris Burkard, expect that conversation to include some serious insights into the passion and ambition it takes to create the...

How can I say this nicely? The night sky in New York City leaves a lot to be desired, especially if you have viewed the heavens from the deck of a container ship in the middle of the ocean. The stars, the handful that you can see over the city, don’t shine very brightly. Several hundred years ago, Venus appeared so brilliantly in the night sky that you could squeeze in a few rounds of shadow...

My 100 Nights project has opened my eyes in other, unexpected ways. Inspiration comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s the environment that inspires me. On this particular night, in Iceland, last March, my friend David Wilder and I had been chasing clear skies to photograph the aurora. We started off at the famous Glacier Lagoon. We...

There is an adage that goes: “A good brush does not make a good painter.” But what if one particular brush were better for the task than others? When it comes to light painting, COAST’s “inspection beam” flashlights will certainly give the light painter a tactical advantage and, for those not painting...

I try not to think about it too obsessively, but photography is drawing with light. When I go out in the morning, I often have an idea as to what I want to photograph. However, that changes as I respond to the world in front of me and how it is illuminated...

This project has been all these things so far: Nights of no sleep, nights of bone-chilling cold, nights spent under the clouds. But it could also be described as 100 nights of learning. I learn something new every time I head out for a shoot. Time-lapsing is a whole new photographic art form that I have been exploring. I can’t use techniques like focus stacking and exposure blending in the same...

It should be no surprise that I’d get clouded out from time to time. And sometimes a few clouds can be very pretty. But I think I’ve already spent one hundred nights under the clouds, and 16 of them were on a three-week-long photography expedition to the Southern-most reaches of the Chilean Fjords, in Patagonia. This was the first expedition I have ever been on. Some of these places were so...

So far, the weather is definitely the biggest challenge I’ve experienced in my 100 Nights project. So much so, that I could have called the project 100 nights of bone-chilling cold. Seriously, I keep finding new limits to the amount and duration of cold I can endure. I can’t even tell you how many nights I’ve shot in temperatures below -30° Celsius in the Canadian Rockies. But somehow, I keep...

I still remember vividly, the first time I ever photographed the Milky Way. It was on a crop sensor camera with a kit lens, in the middle of winter. I had no composition to speak of, and the galactic core of the Milky Way was not visible at that time of year. Somehow none of that mattered: I was completely mesmerized. Seeing the cluster of stars on the back of the screen felt as if someone had...

One of the best ways to grow as a photographer is to immerse yourself in art. Museums and art galleries have long served as perennial sources of creative inspiration. In recent years, an even more photocentric phenomenon has gained traction: the photo festival. In addition to providing exhibition spaces for artists, curators, and galleries, many of these events also include artist talks, panel...

Intrepid adventurer Rachel Jones Ross is most in her element amid heaps of puffy snow, blooming frost flowers, skies full of stars, and methane bubbles in ice. After embarking on a psychology career, Ross fell under the spell of capturing the cosmos in awe-inspiring nocturnal landscapes that coax a delicate inner light from the...

Photography is an adventure to explore the world and myself. It is a diary where I can record the most personal thoughts. Photography encourages me to travel, to interact with people and nature, to embrace life more profoundly. —...
