From the Author 
This is a book of some of my most favorite Black & White and Color images. The most enriching part is to read about the creation of each image, which gives insight to my thinking when I took each photograph and an understanding about STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY.  
During the late sixtieth and seventieth I was a news-photographer. Yet my mission was to find mainly ‘Feature' photographs, which means: images which can stand on their own and are positive segments out of everyday life. I grew out of this discipline and still today apply this vision of simplicity. My traveling range in this book is international even though the book is sprinkled with images from my Feature and News time.  
The editor asked me varied questions to explain my photography and give the reader a more personal explanation of the stories behind the photos. I am trying to give an honest feel about my profession. The viewer can find answers regarding Traveling Equipment, as well as Darkroom Techniques, the Setting, Composition, Lighting, Printing, Releases, People Photography and of course STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY and much more.  
Most images are reproduced in sparkling Black & White, some of the Color photographs were converted and lost contrast. Still the message of the images is there and lots can be learned about my easy globe-trotting style in search for STOCK images. UW
