Recently I shot the live recording of NPR’s From the Top, a radio show that features up and coming musicians. The show was extremely fun to shoot, the musicians spirited and talented, quirky and very excited to be there. It was invigorating to be around such passion and drive. I was even more honored to be asked to use one of the photos for an upcoming recital, which was sent to me and displayed below. I mention this just to show my gratitude and to wish these young musicians success and perhaps we may meet again along the way.
This is a great article from one of my favorite sites. Just a great article that covers a few tips regarding how to take better photos during a fly fishing outing. Fly fishing and photography are certainly two of my favorite things and for photography, there are some great tips here.
First, go out more. The more you get out there exploring with a camera on hand, fishing or otherwise is always a great way to get more sustenance.
Next, is the tip to go out with rad people. Well, yea! It makes me smile but true, a good friend or trusted partner can spur the creative process and offer more opportunity for you to explore your creative side!

It is very difficult to keep track of photography assets in the digital age. Images are accessible to everyone by downloading and screen-grabing. The point is, these images belong to someone and it very easy to "share the love" and making sure you let people know where they came from. It's easy and takes no time at all. I found this amazing and short article on Linked-In the other day written by Erin Bhoorasingh (http://www.GrandLensPhotography.com) on how to give proper photo credit on print, social and other digital agencies.

Yes there are millions of photographers out there. Phones make it easy, and give versatility to the art. However I think the phone is a tool. There is a time and a place to use it. There is a difference between a phone image and other mediums. How often do you print images from your phone? For me, pretty much never. I use it to view on phones or cpu screens where the resolution does not matter that much. I use a phone for certain times, while a DSLR for others, and yes, on a rare occasion I will still use film because without a doubt, film makes such a more detailed image. This video, and shout out to the Nerdwriter here for putting this together, shows that there is more to shooting an image. It brings light to the thought process behind the image, and what an incredible image maker he was.
