I have a fondness for photography books which almost verges on an obsession. I enjoy spending time in my off-grid cabin, where there is nothing more enjoyable than sitting down to a photobook while the outside is blanketed in snow.

Via Rob Haggard this morning a great piece about all the problems facing photographers written by Vincent Laforet. I met Vincent a couple of years ago at the Microsoft Photo Summit and have come to enjoy his work since. His piece for Sports Shooter is both depressing and invigorating at the same time (go figure!) … Continue reading Nothing But Blue Sky For New Photographers
I enjoy Rob’s blog. One of his latest post "a thought on the future of photography" nails it. I have had so many conversations over the years with photographers and it strikes me still how many times I hear: "don’t put your images on flickr", "don’t show high resolution images online", "don’t display your images … Continue reading The audience is now in charge.
