Panasonic Lumix GX850 Footage and Review  

The Panasonic Lumix GX850 – aka the GF800 or the GF9 depending on where in the world you live, is the latest offering from Panasonic. This camera features a compact design but has a micro 4/3 sensor and the ability to change lenses. There are a few stumbling blocks, but this is an excellent camera for traveling and vlogging and comes in at an amazing price point.

Work That Matters  

A few months ago I did a video called NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY. In that video I expressed an importance for photographers to make work that matters. That has quickly become the photography question I get asked the most about.

This Got Personal  

The Q&A session got a little personal today but I did enjoy it. Rarely do I talk about my own work or my influences, but you ask I answer. Lets get to it!

The Answer Is KAWS  

Answering your photography questions… by far the most popular of them relate to getting your work into galleries or seen by museum curators. Lets talk about that. Leading a creative life means being creative in other areas as well. I think this is vital to photography or any of the arts for that matter. Photographers tend to chase careers that are decades behind us. The answer is KAWS. KAWS is the moniker of contemporary artist and designer Brian Donnelly who works out of Brooklyn. If a graffiti artist can have a career like this, what are the possibilities for photographers?

The First Photograph  

The first photograph ever is a heliograph made by Nicéphor Niépce in 1825 of a rooftop in France. Its an extremely early example and the oldest surviving object in the history of photography. Despite my close relationship with this photograph, I have never actually seen it in person – until now. Come along to Austin Texas and see the earliest surviving photograph in history.
