Vintage Photos & Frozen Memories

Most people probably don’t know (or possibly care) that I collect vintage photography. I have boxes and boxes of images, dating back to the early 1900s. Family portraits and snapshots of daily life. Mostly post-WWII, mostly white. Though not by design. I like to buy large lots (for cheap) and…

It’s The End of the Year as We Know It (and We Survived)

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been counting the days, hours, minutes, and even seconds until 2016 is officially over. Still a few more hours to go, but it’s definitely been one of THOSE years. Instead of focusing on everything that made it so excruciating, though, below is a list of…

It Takes More Than a Good Camera

As much of a gear geek as I am, I know that it’s not the camera you use that makes a good photo. It’s your eye and vision. After almost a month of mainly using my iPhone to shoot, I’m starting to appreciate that fact. And I really like not…

Rules Be Damned

I’ve broken the “One Camera” and “One Lens” parts of this photo challenge almost every day since February, to the point I think I’ve shot with almost every camera I have and most of my lenses. With the exception of my iPhone. Don’t ask me why, but I haven’t posted…

Making & Taking

Things that make me go “Hmmmmmmm!” More and more, I’m trying to “make” more photos than I “take.” But when it comes to taking photos of strangers, there’s a fine line…of capturing an artistic moment and being a sneaky voyeur. Not passing judgement for sure. Cuz I have and will…

Portland/Seattle 2016

“Wherever I go, I’m watching. Even on vacation, when I’m in an airport or a railroad station, I look around, snap pictures, and find out how people do things.” –Richard Scarry My vacation to Portland and Seattle was relatively low-key, but I spent a lot of time looking around and…

It’s The End of the Year (and i feel fine)

“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” —Thomas A. Edison The last week of the year is one of my favorites. I usually take a day or two to reflect back on who I love, who loves me back, who I want…

Spec – Just Say No!

While I’ve been known to help a friend or two with creative projects (with no expectation of being paid), I don’t believe in spec work. If you want me to design something, we’ll agree on a rate and you’ll pay it. My name ain’t Popeye and businesses shouldn’t act like…

As Said by Annie Leibovitz

One of the first photographers I knew of was Annie Leibovitz. From the nitty-gritty rock-n-roll scene of the late 1960s and iconic work that includes the famous last photo of John Lennon with Yoko Ono in the 1970s for Rolling Stone, to the slickly produced portraits for Vanity Fair and deeply…

Adobe MAX 2015 + Fujifilm X-T10 = AWESOME!

Two weeks ago, I squealed like the big kid I mostly am when it was announced everybody at Adobe MAX 2015 would be receiving a new Fujifilm X-T10. Not that I needed another camera. I already owned two Nikon DSLRs, a Sony mirrorless, and more point-n-shoots than I care to…
