Fifteen Minutes of Financial Fame

From aboard the National Geographic Explorer off the coast of Mozambique

The Wall Street Journal published a nice interview with me about travel photography in their Saturday edition.

Here’s the online version. Check out the multimedia show I did for their site as well. Now that I’ve made the pages of the WSJ, my 87-year-old father finally acknowledges that what I do may actually be called a job! If I could just score some of bailout bonus funds that other WSJ subjects seem to get, my weekend would be complete….

    How funny. Reminds me of how Enrico Ferorelli once noted that his mother constantly reminded him he had a law degree to fall back on if his photography career didn’t work out.

    Bob, Congratulations!! Great piece and very informative. The slideshow was a plus! You spoke of “cheap exoticism” in the article, which you mentioned to me a few years back from my trip to India. With having few more years experience under my belt, India will be looking very different to me when I return later this year. Thanks! -David

    Beautiful slideshow Bob. As always it’s so great to see a photographer who doesn’t need to rely on the latest photography post-processing gimmick to come away with great story-telling images.

      Hi Paul: Thanks for the comment. The post processing thing is sometimes a strong draw. I’m on the Nat. Geo Explorer and we did a quick stop in Mozambique, and the dusty old town looked great in sepia B&W! Sometimes I can’t resist! cheers, Bob

    Sounds like a great trip Bob, and I think your recent Sepia and B&W stuff is great. For post processing gimmicks I was thinking of the really over-the-top stuff designed more to show who the photographer is than the destination, but let’s not open that can of worms! 🙂

    Beautiful slide show. Fantastic breadth. Great music and script. I’m glad your Dad is giving you due credit – after all this time. That should bring sunshine into your life.

    Cheers,
