  • Hell, even my own family does not care about my photography.  My wife (bless her heart) has frequently expressed concerns about all the 'stuff' in my studio and how to 'dispose' of it when I ...
  • The basic premise – no one cares about your work (i.e., your photography),  is correct.   I reword this slightly by saying most do not care about your work. You may find a few that do; but most ...
  • Nice work
  • I print my best work, often as 16” x 20” (or larger) images.  My ‘best’ work turns out to be about 1 to 2% of my total finished output.  Work not printed gets posted or turned over to the customer ...

  • I'm really impressed with the care that B&H takes to package my orders for shipment.   Over years I've ordered a lot of equipment from B&H and it has always arrived in excellent condition; never a ...
  • I have been a subscriber to Aperture (magazine) for many years.  Aperture helps exposure me to other ways of thinking and different perspectives in terms of photography. I really like the current ...

  • Yes, it is too bad. It's only recently, with digital, that our work had any chance of being 'backed up'. There is plenty of work that never had that chance. Or, never will be 'backed up'.  Still, ...
