There is a place in India where the road ends. It isn’t even a proper road as the last six kilometers coming into the town are thick mud and you are unlucky enough to have to travel in the rainy season you’d have to walk these last six as no jeep will take you there. Beyond this little town in Bihar lies the flooded area of the Kosi river and the only way onwards is by boat.

Today I want to talk about storage and back up of digital images. I’m sure you all back up your pictures on a regular basis, but how? Do you still use a simple external hard drive or back up to DVD and think you are safe? If indeed than you should get your act together […]
How often do you stop and think which lens you are going to take with you on the next assignment? If you had to make a choice for only one lens, which one would it be? Ever since the digital AF-S lenses and my deteriorating eye sight (I’ve been making jokes that very soon I […]

I had a GREAT time in Bangalore! What a talented group of people I had the good luck to meet and spend time with over these three intense days. I am already looking forward to the next workshop there. Special thanks to Andrew Adams for being there with us.
The good guys at PocketWizard were nice enough to send me some gear to play with and boy did I put it to work. I got the MiniTT1 a couple of FlexTT5 for Nikon as well as the The AC3 ZoneController. It seemed like an unbelievable radio triggers system that, not like infrared triggers, enables the user to use the system in full daylight or behind corners without direct view of the commander flash.
What can you do when you find your work used by someone else online? Here is one thing you SHOULD do, but mind you that if you want to shoot, shoot don’t talk. If you intend to go after such copyright thieves you should get in touch with an intellectual property lawyer.
“No budget” is a euphemism for “we think photographers are mugs”. This offensive interpretation can easily be verified by trying the phrase at your local restaurant, eg “I have no budget for dinner but I’d like to eat”. Adding a promise to tell all your friends where you ate will not deflect your head from the kerb as the manager throws you out.” Photographer Tony Sleep
It is always around September that the new year starts in Israel and it has always been a tradition to send greeting cards. These cards were always decorated with the traditional symbols of the Jewish holidays and I remember that as a child we were always fascinated with the glitters and kitch. A few years ago […]
It was said by a photographer (and thanks for John Stanmeyer for reminding) that showing contact sheets is like showing someone your underwear. An interesting way to put it but surely there is a great interest in the contact sheet that shows the photographer’s thinking process behind the shot. The Contact Sheet I was in […]
iPhonography again. Just a quick one with some iPhone shots from the Ganesh Chaturthi procession in Mumbai this last Sunday. I was with a small group of photographers that came for the workshop so did not really shoot so much, but I still managed to sneak in a few snaps. You must have already noticed […]
