    My learnings from shooting my first (very tiny) wedding as a solo official photographer.

    Hello. So this Friday I shot a friend's wedding, it was a very short event with only 8 and 1/2 people (their 2-year-old daughter was with them) at the local registry. There was no church or main event. Unfortunately, the couple was giving me low expectations and organization on what they wanted...

    Nice article on DPR about the new presidential photographer: His kit is three Sony A9II bodies, the 16-35 2.8, the 85 1.4, and the 100-400. He also keeps a 24-105 f4 as "back up". Not...

    After five long years . . . finally published as a nature photographer . . . see also "patient endurance"

    The theme of my early morning devotional last Wednesday was "patient endurance." I remember thinking: "doesn't sound like fun to me." At noon, coming back from a doctor's appointment, the better half says, "better check your messages." There is a call from an editor at The Conservationist...

    Advice Wanted How to deal with people telling you what you should be taking pictures of or other unsolicited advice?

    News BBC's "Food Photographer of the Year 2019"

    BBC news has posted their "Food Photographer of the Year 2019". Based on the title of the page I was expecting something a bit more along the lines of typical "millennial tacking a picture of their dinner", instead it's an international diverse collection of scenes involving food in some...

    Why I would suck as a commercial photographer

    The thread -- I don't want to teach grandma to suck eggs but ..... -- got me going on this. I responded to it as follows: "I like HCB's thought: "You don't take a photograph, the photograph takes you." Exact quote: “A photograph is neither taken or seized by force. It offers itself up. It is...

    Most shows don't really catch my attention, to be honest, but if I was near Denver I think I'd have to check this one out. I think even my wife would go with me. Photographer Lyle Owerko has a show going on with the subject of boomboxes. 📻 Yes, the symbol of music in the 80's, those big clunky...
