Flying Back Home

One thing that I have come to notice when it comes to photography blogs, and to be fair this does get asked a lot, is that photographers tend not to show their mistakes or at least what they believe are mistakes. To some degree it makes sense, this is a business and if you use […]

What Isn’t Known about Fame

There are a lot of famous people in the world and most of the time it is that one thing that they did to become famous that we all know about and nothing else. Well sorry to say this was somewhat the case when I started reading this book. Robert Morgan was captain of a […]

Photopaths Photo Contest

This really does feel like the summer of firsts for me. A few weeks back I was asked by the founder of Photopaths if I wanted to be a judge in their first ever photo contest. Having never done one before I naturally said, Yes! I am thrilled to be a part of this with […]
