Light House Article
I have been working with writer Tony McNikol on quite a few articles now. We went to China 2007 for an A-B story for WINGSPAN, by train from Shanghai to the remote city of Urumqi in the western corner of the Gobi desert. We went to Hachiyojima in the Tokyo archipelago for a story on the traditional drum culture over there. This as well as many smaller local stories on various topics. This time a big article on the American Pacific coast's lighthouses. A road trip starting from San Francisco, heading up to Seattle and back to S.F. Great to work with a writer like Tony, he takes care of everything for the text part so I can focus on the photography 100%. Turned out pretty well, of course I wish we had some more pages and more of the photography (got some remarkable images that wasn't in the article). WINGSPAN is the inflight magazine for ANA i.e. All Nippon Airline.
