Today I met a very short man wearing a hat.
The other day someone who was taking basic photography classes asked me how I knew when a photograph was “done” or “good”. Obviously these are subjective answers, a photograph is done when it is done, it is good if it is good. My answer, paraphrasing myself here: A photograph is done and/or good when I […]
This dog sure caught my attention, his owner (or guardian if you prefer) put the doll hands on his collar. You, know, because he could, I suppose. A lot of people were interested in the baby doll collar, I told the guy he had a potential business plan and should go on Shark Tank or […]
For some reason I find it interesting when people take photographs or make videos of their travels rather than experience then, but that is kind of hypocritical. That is exactly what I am doing. Of course, I am lucky enough to get paid to do it. But, why do people find the photos they take […]

Every now and then I come across something I have never seen before when photographing an event. I really like when people are able to take an regular event and add something that makes it memorable. I was doing photographs for a client at a celebration for a non-profit that runs hospitals and schools in […]
