Give Yourself a Photo Assignment, and Then Write About It

Give Yourself a Photo Assignment, and Then Write About It

Sometimes, I find it difficult to motivate myself to go out and just shoot for the heck of it. Unless it is a project I've planned, or a client shoot, I often find myself making excuses for not going out to shoot.

I haven’t been able to decide if this is my inner lazy shining through, or if I am subconsciously convincing myself that “There is nothing good to shoot today, I’ll go tomorrow.” but it is a counter productive habit that I decided I needed to break.

One Photographer Wants To Make A Difference In The Wake Of Hurricane Sandy

One of my fellow photographer buddies, Andrew Link, the photo director for Rides Magazine, is native to Staten Island, which was hit very hard by Hurricane Sandy. Although, I never knew the extent until I saw his photo series. For a commercial car and portrait photographer, he put together quite a compelling group of photos telling the story of the difficult rebuilding process in Staten Island.

Behind The Scenes Artist Shoot With Cami Bradley

Behind The Scenes Artist Shoot With Cami Bradley

This was a very special shoot to me. Cami has been a good friend/photographer for a long time so we go way back. Although this shoot had nothing to do with her photography. Cami is an amazing vocalist. By far the best I know. I used to produce music and she sang on the first track I ever had signed. So we had a good connection to start with and I knew this was going to be an amazing shoot.

Inspiring Outlook On Photography With David Alan Harvey

One thing that I believe is so important for the creative health of a photographer is listening to what other photographers have to say about their craft. I just got word that David Alan Harvey is going to be teaching at Gulf Photo Plus, and somehow David had not yet crossed my radar. As I began investigating this National Geographic photojournalist, it became increasingly apparent how much passion David has for his work. One quote that really stood out in the video above is "Take the photo first, and focus later,"
