DROBO shares the love.

In GEAR, Giveaways, News & Stuff by David

When DROBO first came out I was hooked. All that redundant backup in a black box that’s as smart as it is sexy? Sign me up! And since then I’ve had a Drobo, now two of them, sitting on my desk. My work comes into my main machine and is immediately backed up to Drobo. Drobo itself has all kinds …

Blackrapid Double Strap Winner

In GEAR, Giveaways by David8 Comments

My sponsors are awesome. One of the deals I’ve made with all of them at some point is that if I get something, so do my readers. Or at least one or two of you chosen completely randomly. 🙂 When I left for India early last month I took my new Blackrapid Double Strap to test out, and Ron at …

In Giveaways, Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David10 Comments

When I was in Seattle several weeks ago I spent an evening with the good folks at Blackrapid, makers of the R-strap. They plied me with local beer, sat me down on the couch and made me play twenty-questions. This is that interview, in 5 parts. You won’t be able to hear the questions really well, there were some sound …

Tuesday Roundup

In Giveaways, News & Stuff, Resources, Within The Frame by David10 Comments

Yesterday was a long day shooting in the sun, my brain’s barely up to more than a roundup of some things I’ve been intending to mention. First, last week I was down in Tampa with my friends at Kelby Media to flog the book (see the bald guy smiling suspiciously in image above). At some point I’ll pull back the …

Within The Frame Thursday

In Giveaways, Within The Frame by David

A few book-related things this morning. Keep reading, there’s free stuff. Or potential free stuff. First, the book is shipping! Several readers have emailed me saying they just got notice their pre-order was now shipping from Amazon. Folks that ordered direct from Peachpit are getting similar notices. So while May 11 is the official release, looks like Christmas is coming …

Portfolio Stuff.

In Giveaways, Marketing, Self-Promotion by David2 Comments

When I launched this month’s main giveaway I was pretty hard on Flickr. I said some cruel things. Feelings got hurt. And then I felt bad, joined Flickr to put my money where my mouth was, and guess what? Still hate it. But it has its uses. I’m not sure how people can do it, must have more time than …

Lensbaby Composer Winner

In Giveaways by David4 Comments

Well, this month’s giveaway got more lovin’ than any of the previous ones to date. As promised, I pulled up a random number generator, entered the number of entries and left the forces of chaos to do their thing. In the end it was Robert from MorningGlass.org who comes away with a brand new LensBaby Composer. Robert, send me an …

Hot Shoes Hot Off Press; Yours For Free.

In Books, Giveaways, Influences by David

Joe McNally has been slaving away on his recent book. It’s now done and only weeks away from being released. I share the same publisher as luminaries like Joe, Vincent Versace, and Scott Kelby. How I got past the selection committee for this club I have no idea, but if I keep my head down and not make too much …
