There are plenty of reasons, other […]

The Eye Has to Travel

Who Inspires You?

The other day, I posed this question to our Facebook group:  “What iconic photographer’s work inspires you the most right now?”  This, along with the stipulation that we limit our answers to photography’s iconic Masters and leave out the currently popular gurus of the craft.

Wedding Detail Shots Help Tell The Story

I began shooting weddings nearly 10 years ago.  I have to say, it was sometimes an exciting way to earn a paycheck.  If you’re the type of photographer that likes to make every photo count, and also likes a good challenge, try weddings.  I did and I liked it much of the time.  There’s a […]
