The Visual Toolbox is Shipping!

In Books, e-books, News & Stuff, The Craft by David6 Comments

I’m speaking at a creativity conference in Mexico this week, but I wanted to let you know The Visual Toolbox is now shipping! You’d think this would get old somehow, but the release of any new book is exhilarating, even more so when it’s a printed book. If you’re at the What If! Conference, come have a celebratory drink with …

Northern Kenya: A Case Study

In Craft & Vision, e-books, SEE THE WORLD, Travel by David10 Comments

Two weeks ago I returned from assignment work in northern Kenya. You’ve seen some of the work already. It’s by far my favourite work, done for my favourite organization – the Boma Project. In fact I like them so much that after my first assignment with them I became a donor, and committed to making my services part of that …

The Travelling Photographer

In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books, SEE THE WORLD, Travel by David12 Comments

“Wherever you go, you take yourself with you.” ~ Neil Gaiman In Hokkaido last month one of the guys I was traveling with made an astute observation, that no matter where we travel as photographers, we will always have the same creative struggles as we do at home because “we take that same photographer with us wherever we go.” Indeed. …

Impressions & Abstracts

In Craft & Vision, Creativity and Inspiration, e-books, The Craft, The Life Creative by David23 Comments

Next week we’re releasing my next eBook –  The Visual Imagination, a book about creative techniques and ideas that focuses mostly on impressionism and abstraction. Yesterday I was doing a pre-release podcast interviews, talking to Ibarionex Perello, the amazing voice and mind of The Candid Frame, and he asked me the one question I’m so fond of asking others. Why? …

Striking Landscapes

In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books by David2 Comments

Today we’re releasing Martin Bailey’s latest eBook – Striking Landscapes, Techniques for Photographers in Beautiful Places. It’s big (80 pages) and beautiful, and like anything Martin does, it digs into some of the nitty gritty stuff – usually the same kind of stuff I go to Martin for help on because as hard as I lean to the artsy fartsy …
