What is important to me?
I was honored to be asked to write an article about my influences and what I’ve learned from and about photography for an on-line German Photography Magazine, Kwerfeldein.
Google should translate it, but it loses a bit, so if you care to read it as I wrote it, it’s here:http://www.mikepeters-photography.com/Category/Kwerfeldein-Magazine-Article/n-RWbfC
42nd Street & 8th Avenue.
All men contain several men inside them, and most of us bounce from one self to another without ever knowing who we are.

Featured on An Unlikely Scene:
"After spending a good part of the year in Melbourne with my family, we sped up to Sydney for a week in a borrowed car. We had beaten the Canadian winter and this, a day on Australia’s famed Bondi Beach, was our last hurrah down under.
It wasn’t the busiest of times, I’d wager. There were some old-timers playing dominoes and a few surfers carrying boards. But as the end of this fall day crept, the air became crisp and windswept. The sun’s shadows elongated and beachgoers traded ocean for sand, suits for sweaters, and gelato for coffee. All and all, it was pretty sparse where the waves crashed.
We had walked along the boardwalk and I was snapping as we went. There was a family of three enjoying what was left of the warm glow. I quickly photographed that scene which is a rather broken photo. But taking that shot allowed me to recognize the one I would want. It was then, from behind the breakwall, a girl in blue shorts darted. She continued to run. She ran from her family and across the sand towards the blue. I snapped a second photo and a third moments later for assurance. But it was the penultimate image that made the cut. That’s the one above.
I’m not sure if the girl, the eldest daughter perhaps, made it to where she was headed to. Or, if her family ever followed. Everyone seemed quite content doing what they were doing. Or, do they? But if there’s one thing I’ve learned since then, especially speaking as a parent, it’s that kids grow up fast and, before you know it, they’re off into the distance.”
Indeed they do John, indeed they do. Savor every minute of their childhood, it passes in a flash.

Thomas Springsteen - Veteran.
"Healing Bobby" tells the remarkable, sometimes-funny but always inspiring story of Bobby Henline, a veteran who sustained burns on more than a third of his body while serving in Iraq. Watch the full video, directed by Peter Van Agtmael, live here.
Looks like fun on the Nurburgring…
Common Mistakes Emerging Photographers Make: “They put the cart before the horse. Forget about shows, forget about books, forget about being famous, forget about people knowing who you are. Take the first 10 or 15 years to figure out how to be a fucking photographer.
