Snow’s coming, and @nyfw is winding down, so, I thought of....a fashion model on a beach in a warm place like Peru! Thinking of #NYFW with all the images out there and a juxtaposition of a fashion model on the beach! Actually, a desert—this is the Paracas area of Peru, stunning landscapes at the edge of the ocean. Soft clouds—one big soft light matches that feel. #fashionphotography#TransformationTuesday#NikonAmbassador#D810#picoftheday#TravelTuesday#TuesdayThoughts#TopicTuesday#TipTuesday@claudiamariaca@lacasa_films@nikonusa#lacasafilms  #nikonnofilter#Peru

Another ballet juxtaposition for the week of #BalletDay. One of the characters from a famed ballet, La Bayadere, a classic piece often performed by the Bolshoi Ballet. Here he leaps in an old Russian building, converted at that point to a restaurant. Moscow was undergoing profound changes when I shot this story for LIFE, and the dancers became beautiful vehicles to depict the city and the changes. #SaturdayMorning#film#dance#ballet#BolshoiBallet#picoftheday#dancephotography#leap#thephotosociety

The life and times of a magazine photog. I was desperate to do a story on the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow when I was a staff photographer at LIFE. My editors finally gave me an ok, as long as I didn’t spend too much dough. My fixer graciously gave me his apartment in this building to live in, while he stayed with friends. The hallways  of this old, Russian building spoke to me, and I brought a lovely dancer from the Bolshoi, in costume, to this stairwell, rich in detail and patina. The cleaning lady was hired by me to pose as well, as I wanted something going on in a couple of different planes of the photo.

Experiencing thermal whiplash here around #NYC — in the 50’s last couple days. Last week it looked like this. Lens shade a must in this kind of flurry! Look for backlight for drama. #TransformationTuesday#TipTuesday#TuesdayThoughts#nycstreets#streetphotography#NikonZ6#NikonAmbassador#TopicTuesday#timessquare  #reflections#color#streetphoto  #wintervibes#manhattan

A chance encounter with ballerinas! In the snow squall of this past Wednesday in #TimesSquare no less, I ran into these wonderful young dancers, visiting The Big Apple with their moms. That really is the fun of having a camera in hand. Just sometimes, things like this happen. They strike an arabesque atop the red steps near the north end of Times Square. Such terrific, talented kids, and it was fun to snap a few frames, which have been sent to them, of course, via the miracle of digital. 😀. #snow#fun#ballerina#bigapple#SaturdayMorning#nycsnowstorm#newyorkcityphotography  #streetphoto#nycstreets#streetphotography#timessquare#wintervibes#manhattan

Into the sun, and up from the snows of the Sierras. Last one of a series on aviation shot for @natgeo, on this week of #GeographicDay. From 2003, Nikon D1X, and a cover story called, The Future of Flight. First all digital story, ever, for nat geo. Fun to shoot, hard to shoot. To gain permission to fly photo coverage on the still in test phase F-22 Raptor, my editor went all the way to the Air Force Chief of Staff. Got one stint, max 30 minutes, with the Raptor on com with pilot of the F-16 I was flying in. My pilot, a great guy, laughed when he said he was told about our mission, dogging an F-22. He said, “Joe, we’re gonna be like a city bus chasing a Maserati!” On the way back from the mission, we had too much gas so we went supersonic, burned some fuel and took a couple 9 G turns. Just about blacked out--good thing he was flying the plane. #Throwbackthursday#ThursdayThoughts#picoftheday#aviationphotography  #NikonAmbassador#Photooftheday  @NatGeo#natgeo@thephotosociety

Up and over w the #blueangels Taking a look at some aviation work done for @natgeo during the week of #GeographicDay In the air, in formation w @USNavyBlueAngels. Flew twice in the Number 4 slot w the Blues. #WednesdayWisdom —as fighter pilots will tell you, a banana is a good thing to eat before flying as it looks the same coming back up as it did going down! Back seat flying—no camera straps! #WayBackWednesday#NikonAmbassador#Photooftheday#picoftheday#fisheye@NatGeo#natgeo@thephotosociety#aviationphotography#USNavyBlueAngels

For #GeographicDay, a shot from long ago, that has proven to be durable. It came from a story called “The Future of Flight,” which was the first all digital story ever published in the history of @natgeo. First time not a single yellow box of Kodachrome was used. (Or any kind of film.) Shot on a Nikon D1-X camera, which was the first digital camera I felt approximated the quality of Kodachrome, which is what I had shot thousands of rolls for Nat Geo stories prior to this. Shot at China Lake Naval Air Station in Cal. The Pegasus, or, X47-A, pilotless drone, still in test phase at the time. #natgeoday#SundayMorning#SkySunday#sunrise#ChinaLake#GeographicDay@natgeo  #aviation#D1x#picoftheday#digital
