I’m a Canon girl, although the first photos I took were on an Olympus D-380 that my parents gave me for the holidays when I was twelve years old. My dad was a photographer, and when I was growing up he had a disposable camera in the glove compartment of his car at all times. We’d be driving down the street, and he’d pull over anytime he saw something he liked. He’d make me get out of the car and stand next to him as he told me how he was composing the shot, and why he was doing it one way or another. Despite that, my old Olympus sat on a shelf for two years, until I hit high school. I started taking photos of all of my new friends, documenting our daily lives, as a way to mask the fact that I felt totally awkward.
"Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” George Eastman.
Having been involved in professional photography for over 30 years, I've tested a wide range of equipment and used a variety of camera bodies to achieve the huge library of work that I presently have. I'm happy to share how I got this particular photo, and the story will probably surprise you as much as it did me.

Do you remember that feeling when you were a child and fireworks started bursting in the sky? As a photographer, I think I have that same child-like joy reaction—because I know I am going to get some amazing photographs. Since Fourth of July is right around the corner, I thought I’d share some of my habits, tips and processes when shooting fireworks. Most people try to capture a few pretty fireworks shots when they shoot. I aim for about 50.

Is Jeff Cable a smooth, Vegas-style crooner? A flügelhorn virtuoso? A singing cowboy? Nope. Jeff is a talented photographer and an excellent public speaker, and B&H has been fortunate to have him host a number of lectures at our Event Space. Recently, it came to our attention that the YouTube videos of his presentations have racked up nearly half a million views, which is impressive, considering that most of them are well over an hour in length. We decided to mark the occasion by sharing this collection of Jeff Cable’s Greatest Hits.
