Landings 2019 Trailer

This is the trailer for Landings 2019 that I puttogether. It was challenging working out how everything needed to flow and fit together. When I did figure it out, it wasn’t that difficult putting it together. The planning and figuring it out are the hardest parts for me. The hands-on work takes time, but I enjoyed doing it. ‘Landings’ is a collection of current work by students and staff of the Online MA Photography course at Falmouth University.

Things like: ISO controls shutter speed – asked by several different people in classes I have taught, I tracked this one down to a book by a well-known author of photography books. ISO never controls…

Doing What You Love

You have probably heard the old saying, “Do what you love, and you will never work a day in your life.” While I truly believe that, I like to keep the Peace Corps’ slogan in mind when thinking about photography, “The toughest job you’ll ever love.” Why is photography one of the toughest jobs you will ever love? The hours stink – Weekend, what’s a weekend? One Sunday I worked on a project from 6:15am until 8:30pm. Those are long hours to work on a weekend after a “normal” work week. That doesn’t happen as often as it used to. Over the years I have…
