Adobe Create Now World Tour

Tuesday morning I was in Silver Spring , Maryland for the Create Now World Tour. This was a free event hosted by Adobe to promote the Creative Cloud. I like going to events like this especially when they are free. There are only two stops in the U.S. left on the tour for this year, New York and Seattle (both still have space available). If you are in the UK there are two stops scheduled for Edinburgh (space still available) and Bristol (sold out). Terry White, Paul Trani and David… Read more Adobe Create Now World Tour

A Studio

For some time now I have wanted to have a studio. I didn’t always want one for several reasons. Over the past couple of years I have been thinking about having a studio more and more. Back when I was working as a photographer’s assistant one photographer gave me a pretty solid piece of advice: “When you have a studio, the tail starts to wag the dog.” Meaning, as he explained, you might end up taking every job, even ones you hate, just to pay the rent.

With today being World Photography Day I have a question. What will you do photographically today? If you are like many people with a full-time job, fitting in time on a Monday to make some photos might not be… Read more World Photography Day 2013

Being aware of your surroundings.

This morning as I was driving to Fredericksburg to have some regular maintenance done on one of our cars. I drove through some moderate rain showers and I became aware, once again, of how many people don’t pay much attention to what is going on around them, until the last minute. As photographers we should be aware of everything that is going on around us, not only when we are making images but also when we are looking for things to photograph. I’m sure you have seen images on the… Read more Being aware of your surroundings.
