You might recognize this view from another photo of my, What Floats By, which was also featured on the Really Right Stuff blog. This is another view, from a different spot. I went for a more punchy and contrasting processing style for this one to change things up. I call this Eerie Georgia because, well, […]

While I was up in Massachusetts a while back I was photographing a Historic Mill during my friend Bob’s workshop. I spent a lot of time playing with shadows and light, bracketing in certain places and doing long exposures in others. The photograph here is one where I noticed some really fun shadows coming through […]

Like many other photographers, I sometimes grab the zoom lens to make shooting a job easier. But in the middle of job, and many times after, I question whether I actually did make the job easier. So which is it? You see, a zoom lens makes it easy to make a photo at a variety […]

Sometimes it’s hard to tell when something is man-made or Earth made. This mossy wasteland is actually underneath a man-made walkway at the Cape May Zoo. There are no zoo rides or attractions in the water. Only wildlife (not even part of the zoo). This water separates the caged animals from the open range animals like […]

Important Photography Website Factors All Photographers Should Consider

Important Photography Website Factors All Photographers Should Consider

Photography website – an ongoing discussion in the industry, and one that has no solid answers.  I’m hoping to change that with the best possible advice I can give. One of the more common questions I receive from photographers is about websites. More specifically, questions about how to build a website for their hobby or for their […]

Ethics Still Exist In The Photography Business

Ethics Still Exist In The Photography Business

I recently came across an article talking about the lack of ethics in the photography industry and as I read it I kept thinking to myself… “Is this person serious?” The article talked specifically about a group of photographers that I know personally.
