Inspiration (For Sale)

bookcover-comp

My limited edition monograph, The Pixelated Image, made Scott Kelby’s Top 5 List today. It’s a long list of favourites from gear to books to teachers to places. The Pixelated Image made it to his Top 5 Photography Books That Will Inspire You list. Quite an honour coming from Mr. Kelby.

This book is a collector’s item. Only 100 will ever be printed, they’re hand-signed and numbered, and they aren’t cheap. The funds I am raising from the sale of this book are going towards my Women and Children First project which is a creative funding solution to get me shooting for NGOs working in the developing world with women and orphans and vulnerable children. Lots of great groups out there need photo-resources for fund-raising and advocacy, this will help me get there for one or two of them.

Inspiration is the intangible we all run on as creatives. It’s the in-breathing that gives us the spark, the a-ha! moment. It’s what pulls us out of those ruts. No matter how you do it, you need to be aware of what inspires you so you can pro-actively pursue it. Especially when you’re in the rut and can’t see over the sides. A year ago I wrote this post on the nature of inspiration – if you’re looking for some, give this a read.

In the mean time – comments are open – what inspires you?

Friday Odds and Ends

In the last six months I have had 3 LaCie d2 drives fail on me just after exceeding their 1 Year warranty. This doesn’t make me the happiest camper. But it does make me glad I practice paranoia and the art of redundant backups. 1 TB drives are going for less than $400 now, so […]

GoodBye to An Old Friend

It’s with mixed feelings that I change my sponsorship today and say good-bye to an old friend. LowePro has faithfully sponsored me from the beginning – my first sponsors, like a first girlfriend, hold a special place in your heart. I still believe that for extreme sports annd adventure, LowePro makes products that are second-to-none. […]
