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 …

VisionMongers Going To Press

In Books, News & Stuff, VisionMongers by David16 Comments

My second book, VisionMongers, Making a Life and a Living in Photography, is going to press in a week, earlier than originally planned. Why? Because y’all said you couldn’t wait and I’m not so patient myself. It means that the book will be released on November 16 and anyone who pre-ordered on Amazon.com will get theirs within a week of …

Back From Vegas (Baby!)

In News & Stuff by David9 Comments

I landed at 2pm yesterday and now I’m finally home. Feels good to be unpacking and knowing I’ll be grounded for a while. It’s been a nutty month and I’m glad to be home and settled. Going from India to Vegas was a mind-bender, and I have to tell you I’d very happily not ever do it again. The Vegas …

Something To Look Forward To.

By the time you read this I’ll be hip-deep in Las Vegas at Photoshop World. If I’m still alive. Hey man, I’ve seen CSI, I know what goes on in that town. If I get a hotel room at the end of a hallway, I’m outta there! I’ve been wanting to do a quick post about the whole eBook thing, …

R-eluctantly Posted

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 …

I Use APC

In Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David10 Comments

Many of you know how much I love working in, and with, the photographic community. Several months ago the fine folks at Artistic Photo Canvas connected with me about being featured in their new I USE APC ads, and after coercing my buddy Dave Delnea to come to Vancouver’s Chinatown one evening to shoot some images, those ads are now …

So, Here We Are.

I’ve been home from India for a whole day now, and leave for Vegas tomorrow morning. Can’t imagine a more bizarre cultural shift than going from peaceful Ladakh to the Las Vegas strip. So, this one’s a hodge-podge of stuff to accompany the release of the October Wallpaper (see post below). Ladakh was, at it always is, amazing. Weather was …

Too Much Fun

In Just For Fun, News & Stuff, Travel, Workshops and Events by David3 Comments

Hello from Delhi. Writing this close to 5am and in a couple hours the 3rd Lumen Dei Tour begins. Yesterday the four of us – Matt Brandon (below), Gavin Gough, Ami Vitale, and I, hung out around Delhi scouted a couple places, and between frames laughed our asses off. Had a great time and can’t wait to unleash Ami (above) …

Seeing The Light

In Books, News & Stuff, Resources by David7 Comments

I’m a voracious reader, it’s one of the ways I learn best, and eBooks seem to be a great bridge between the information found online for free and the $40 price-tag of a print book. There’s a place for all of those. A month or two I directed you to Mitchell Kanashkevitch’s ebook about post-processing. It was, and still is, …
