Benefit auction for Japanese disaster relief

As I have mentioned to some of you, I have decided to organize a small, benefit auction in support of disaster relief for Japan. I don’t like being in a position where I know I could do something if I was motivated enough, and don’t, so I figured I would see just what I could […]

No such thing as bad weather.

I know more than a few photographers who refuse to leave the house unless an epic sunset or sunrise is promised.  At the same time there is a running joke amongst some of my photographer friends about how I have unbelievable luck with “good” weather.  This has been tested over the last three weeks on […]

Those who think they are the only ones looking, tend to be looking at far less than the rest.

Ok, before I get into this, let me preface by saying it has been a long week. I am fairly worn out and as such perhaps a bit more grumpy and rant-prone than usual. But nonetheless, what I am about to rant about is behavior that has bugged me for a little while now, I […]

On Pinhole

Those of you who know me, know that I enjoy my pinhole camera.  I rarely go out on any photographic excursion without it in fact.  So, I figured I would spend a few minutes tonight introducing it to those of you who are not familiar with it. The camera I use is made by in […]

As elusive as a shadow at night

I am going to risk putting myself out on a limb here (oh god, not even beyond the first sentence without a pun, bodes ill this does), but I want to discuss a bit about what makes photography…worthwhile, at least on a personal level.  It is often a bit awkward for me to tackle such […]

Getting to know me a bit more

… I dream to be an artist. I pray that someday, if I work with enough care, if I am very very lucky, I will make … a work of art. Call me an artist then, and I will answer. I consider myself a photographer…stop. Not a fine art photographer, nor a master, or a […]

Getting to know me… a bit

Let me start off by first saying, thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet, and secondly for pulling up a chair long enough to read what I have written here.  If any of you are familiar with my Flickr stream, then I am sure you are aware of the fact that […]
