Workshops

I am excited to announce in this week’s podcast, my 2017 workshop calendar. You can learn more about the workshops here, but I am offering both in-person workshops and online workshops on a variety of topics. So no matter if you are looking to create better images behind the camera, stay organized or create amazing prints, this years’ workshops have something for everyone.

I am also teaching at Photoshop World in April as well as with CreativeLive in May. You can learn more about both of those conferences with the links above.

Visual Literacy

This past weekend I attended a lecture by Michelle Dunn Marsh on Visual Literacy. Over the course of the two hour presentation, I learned something interesting about my own work and how people see photographs. Michelle at one point made a comment along the lines of: When we connect with an image, we connect with the subject and subject matter in the photograph not the photographer.

As I got to thinking about this idea on the way home, it shifted a perspective I have had about my work and the work of others. In many ways, the most successful photographs in history are never really about the photographer. They work best when the photographer is able to get out of their own way.

In this week’s podcast, I share some thoughts on pricing your work and selling your work as art for the wall. Rather than focusing on what to price, I’ll share with you some of the key things to consider when pricing your work and taking those first step

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
