My Favorite Photography Gear and Gadget Finds of 2020

12/2/2020
As 2020 draws to a close, I want to share with you some of my favorite GEAR and GADGET finds from the past year. Photographers often hear the quote, “it's not the camera that makes the picture, it is the photographer”. They usually hear it from a person who has tens of thousands of dollars worth of camera gear. I like to take a slightly more practical approach and that is simply that all the gear in the world won't make you a great photographer, but the right gear can make your task much...

9 Ideas To Make YOU More Creative and Your Photographs Unique

11/25/2020
If you don't think that you are very creative and struggle coming up with ideas, I have 9 Ideas To Make YOU More Creative and Your Photographs Unique. One of the questions that I hear frequently from photographers is: “Where do you come up with your ideas?” That question is usually followed by one of these statements: “I’m just not that creative.” or “I guess I’m not creative.” or my personal favorite, “I just don’t know how to find new ideas”. If you are a photographer who thinks like...

Success for me, has always been working to build the skills to build the confidence that I could pick up a camera at will and create an image that measures up to my imagination.

STOP making excuses to improve your photography

11/11/2020
I frequently consult with photographers who are trying to improve their photography or make more money in their business efforts and recently I noticed a trend. A trend where photographers lament that they are struggling to improve their work or make more money, yet for every struggle and problem that they face, they have excuses, often multiple excuses for why they can’t overcome the problem. And THAT is a big problem. The more I considered this trend, I realized that it’s not really a...

The Future of Editing Software is Here and I Predicted It Years Ago!

11/4/2020
I am often asked what I see in my crystal ball for the future of photography. Truth is I don’t have a crystal ball for the future of photography. I mean, who really does. Right? But I have been involved with photography since I was 11 years old and one of the big lessons that I’ve learned is that we can find many of the answers to what the future holds by actually looking to the past history to a large degree repeats itself. As photographers, we reward manufacturers for making gear or...

How to FIND the BEST Models & What Makes a GREAT Model

Under Promise & Over Deliver is the WRONG Approach

10/21/2020
I first heard Under-Promise and Over-Deliver from an early mentor way back in my twenties. It is an aphorism. Aphorisms, like clichés are those pithy, often overused observations that contain a general truth, like, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I mean, it makes sense right? Set the expectations low and over deliver on those expectations and your clients will think you are a superstar. The more I thought about this concept, the more I began to realize its shortcomings. So I did a little...

Most Valuable Learning Technique That Most Photographers Ignore

10/7/2020
Photographers tend to do the shoot, find a few images they like, celebrate, and then file the images away and move on. They rarely take the time to consider the failures. To ask why they don’t like that image? They don’t consider how they could have improved it? A normal workflow for most photographers, myself included, is to shoot images and then return home and download them to the computer. Then we eagerly cull through the shoot to find the best image or images. Then we process them and...
