This is usually the area where photographers pretentiously posture as if they just cured cancer. They talk about how they connect spiritually with their subjects or how they’ve been influenced by Pee Wee Herman. Whatever. I find it quite annoying. In that spirit, I’ll keep my pitch short and sweet. Here’s what you need to know about me. I have more than 30 years experience in newspaper, magazine and commercial photography. I was a director of photography for a midwest ad agency as well as for the Topeka Capital-Journal.I shared in a Pulitzer Prize at the Kansas City Star for its coverage of the Hyatt Skywalk Collapse in 1981. A small piece of it, but a Pulitzer nonetheless. I like to have fun. I ride a road bike a lot, and my family is my number one priority. I won’t tolerate intolerance. I don’t like it when people talk on their cell phones while driving. It’s dangerous. I play the uilleann pipes. I went to law school with my daughter. But the most important things you need to know about me are: I am easy to work with, I don’t take myself too seriously, and I produce great work on a budget and on deadline. And now, I’m a FAA Part 107 Certified Drone pilot offering photography from an aerial perspective, too.
I’m based in Austin but work all over Texas and the rest of the country. Maintaining a consistent aesthetic, many of my projects are in the commercial advertising and editorial world but you’ll find some personal experiments and explorations in the Series column. These productions are big and small from multi-day lifestyle cast and shoots to just me and the subject in a low key setting. Strongly architectural images and interiors are a concentration with their own home at craigwashburnplaces.com. I am also the founder of still-motion pictures, a fresh merging of motion, photography and animation.

ABOUT Whether it is a runner focusing before an Olympic race, a refugee becoming the first of her community to receive a university degree or a climber looking up at the mountain he will measure himself against, emotions are the common thread, human and universal. Telling people stories with earnestness and honesty is what I strive to do every time I pick up a camera. I am grateful that photography has given me so many opportunities to live unique experiences. There are too many to list exhaustively, but highlights include sailing an expedition yacht around Cape Horn, being invited to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony in Dadaab Refugee Camp, photographing Usain Bolt at the Olympics, skiing to the North Pole, naming three (small) mountains in Greenland, adventure racing through Tierra del Fuego, climbing on K2 and getting winched from a rescue helicopter at night . I can’t wait to see what happens next! My work is currently divided more or less evenly between adventure and humanitarian/development projects. I currently live in Canmore, Alberta, but frequently travel back to my former home base of Chamonix, France.

I’m a commercial and editorial portrait photographer living in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. From the time I was a child, I loved drawing and painting. When my dad gave me my first camera when I was 12, I saw photography as another art form, and I still do. From those early photos I realized that I prefer the warmth and grace of natural light and the simple beauty of a perfect composition.
creative nickname Q-lieb-in. Professional travel photographer. Inspired by Mother Nature and our Universe. My photography passion is an aerial and night shooting. Night photography attracts me with its slow pace — you can break away from the bustle of the day, and because of the long exposure shooting process does not interfere with the contemplation of the starry sky. Consciously observing the majestic night sky, I feel like a single particle of the Universe, merging into a single whole with it.

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Halfway through my aerospace engineering studies at UCLA, I bought my first camera, and it all grew from there. Upon earning my degree, I went to a beautiful little city on the west coast of France near the Spanish border called Biarritz. It was in this place that I got my first job as a photographer. I have shot a wide variety of projects both commercial and travel/documentary, and am always taking on more. Currently splitting my time between San Francisco and New York, and shooting wherever I am needed.
