If Ansel Used Instagram  

What if Ansel Adams or Henri Cartier-Bresson we’re on Instagram? How many likes would they have? Would Ansel have a drone? Would Henri Cartier-Bresson have followers? Is the golden age of photography over? Are there too many photographers today? Everyone has a camera on their cell phone – does that make everyone a photographer? The answer is right in front of our eyes, but we have to look at what they did.

Why We Must Look Beyond Photography  

I often address topics related to creativity and inspiration in photography. I also firmly believe that one of the strongest ways to stay inspired and create new things is to have influences outside the photography world.

The Brilliant Photos of Richard Avedon  

Richard Avedon began his most seminal body of work called In The American West in the late 70’s. Commissioned by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art it hasn’t been displayed in the museum since the opening. Currently there is a small show of selections from the work. I have a plan of doing a deep dive with these photographs.

Color Palettes In Photography  

Understanding color and using a color palette approach to composition can give more power to your photos, particularly when you want to use accent colors. Limiting these palettes can draw the viewer in to your photo and make a bold statement.

Why Gear Does Not Matter  

Are photos from a DSLR better than photos from an iPhone? Is 35mm better than large format? Does any of this matter? Cameras don’t make pictures, people do. Lets talk about why your gear does NOT matter.

5 Reasons You Should Own A Nikon F4  

Introduced in 1988, the Nikon F4 is one of the classics in the F series of 35mm SLR film cameras. It was the second flagship Nikon camera to incorporate autofocus (after the Nikon F3AF in 1983) and also added Matrix metering to the lineup. I bough mine in the early 2000’s and it was my main camera for several years. One of the best film cameras Nikon made and here are 5 reasons why you should own one.
