What is style? How do you define your own style? And why do we need one? In this post I am going to try answer those difficult questions.

Here we are at the close of another grand year. 2012 has been materially fruitful, shooting in London, Paris, LA, New York – and even Dubai on a holiday. I’ve had a second book published with Ilex/Pixiq, Creative Portrait Photography, and created lots of new work – with [...]

A look over the work I did in 2010 and how some of it has veered toward what I call the ‘haphazard shot’, inspired by various photographers described in this post. I look at the milestones from the past 12 months including being part of the Art of Photography Show and starting my own workshops…
At this very moment I am trying to plan my presentation that I am giving for the Art of Photography Show in San Diego next Thursday night, in which I have an image of mine exhibited. Steven Churchill, who I met in 2009 at the Palm Springs Photo Festival, kindly offered the idea of doing [...]
