In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at Jeff Johnson, Lee Chapman, Ming Thein and Harold Davis, all chief executives.

  • Beyond and Back follows Santa Barbara photographer Jeff Johnson through Yosemite and the Sierras. He actually climbs El Capitan with Tommy Caldwell and his partner. "They would only climb when it was in shadow or dark out," he recalls. "You want it to be cold so you don't sweat as much, your grip is better and the rubber on your shoes it tackier." Cool.
  • Lee Chapman Shares the Secrets of His Tokyo Street Photography with Trevor Mogg. "If it's bright and sunny, I'll pre-focus -- my preferred distance being 1.5 meters (5 feet) -- meaning the only thing I have to think about is composition," Chapman says.
  • Create or Document?, that is the question, writes Ming Thein. "I still strongly feel the need to create, but outside the restrictions of what I've previously shot or seen," he adds before making the leap "so that the limitations are my imagination rather than my physical location."
  • Harold Davis shot a Davis Family Portrait because "the years go by so quickly and it is good to make some images of the kids as time passes." You can tell which one is president, too.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
