Creative: A Road to Photography

So I got something new in the mail. As you know, I’m a sucker for all things analog post. Mathieu Chiasson is a relative newcomer to photography but is attempting to make up for lost time. I’ve never met Mathieu … Read More

Creative: Feiyutech G6plus Gimbal

Might want to take a quick look outside to make sure the world isn’t ending. I know what you are thinking. “Milnor, is that a gimbal I see?” Why yes, yes it is. “Milnor, what are you doing with it?” … Read More

Creative: Map-Making

This is a beautiful book. I just visited one of the best photobook stores in the United States, and I could easily see this book living in that environment. If the economics were right. Or, I could see these authors … Read More

Creative: Audio Q&A, Personal vs Professional

Back with another Audio Q&A, this time covering the idea of personal vs professional. Or perhaps it’s not about “vs” but more about how these two things work hand it hand to create the person you really are. This is … Read More

Creative: Postcards from the Northeast

These are not great images. Full disclosure. Vacation. Yearly. A getaway. These places, faces and moments are what we live for. Retirement. I thought about it for the first time ever a few days ago. For anyone my age thinking … Read More

Creative: Sneak Peek ESSAY Issue #5

I would normally never do this, but I’m so excited about this story I’m giddy. Now, in typical Milnor fashion I’ve devised a way to torture myself. I can’t really access this story again until the fall. DAMNIT. This is … Read More

Creative: Audio Q&A, Art for Art’s Sake

I have to admit something. I love making these audio posts. I can’t explain my lust for all things audio. I know little to nothing about music, but I love sound. I love recording it, sharing it, etc. These little … Read More

Creative: Frank Jackson Journal

You gotta love Frank. Just doing his thing. And that thing varies depending on what hat he is wearing although I’ve never actually seem him wearing a hat. But don’t get distracted from the good. I’ve written about and featured … Read More

Creative: Notes on Photography, Episode 5

Seeing as I just ran this image as part of another post I thought, “Why not use that for Notes on Photography.” So here it is. Frankly, I love this picture. Not much I would change, but let’s break it … Read More

Creative: Cuba Workshop Update Three

Images made while teaching workshops in Peru. Only the set of “standard” images I made. In addition these “general take” images, I had a secondary, smaller theme-Dogs Can’t Read– as well as a series of embeddable mobile phone stories with … Read More

Creative: New Mexico Training

I turned the bike over and what was stuck to the bottom was enough to make me retch. It was Guantanamo Bay material. Show this substance to someone, they tell you what you want to know. So, I cleaned it. … Read More

Creative: Audio Q&A, Capturing and Preserving

Hello my children. Checking in with another Audio Q&A. This time we talk about capturing and preserving. What’s the best thing about this post? Well clearly it’s that you get to listen to my silky smooth voice. Think Barry White. … Read More

Creative: Cuba Workshop Update Three

Still obsessing about the Cuba workshop. The gear has been sorted, the foundation of a technique is in place and now we wait…. But I wanted to touch on the idea of what this workshop might look like because of … Read More

Creative: Palm Springs Photo Festival Recap

Okay kids, so much has happened since we last spoke. I just slept ten hours. I’m still kinda groggy. The Palm Springs Photo Festival 2018 is now in the books, and I’m now attempting to dig out after being off … Read More

Creative: Palm Springs Photo Festival, Day Three

And then depression set in. There have been brief moments during my “career” that I thought “Hey, I think I’m a decent photographer,” or moments when I thought “I think I just made something good.” But then I went to … Read More

Creative: Palm Springs Photo Festival, Day Two

The earthquake, 4.6, woke me up at 4:49. Entire hotel was swaying and the noise that comes with these babies will definitely get your attention. So, out of bed at 6AM and up the mountain behind the museum. Dust, rock … Read More

Creative: Palm Springs Photo Festival, Day One

It’s not really day one. Yesterday was day one, but the “soft” day one is a slow burn ramp up to the “real” day one, which is today. Confused yet? Last night was also the opening reception which was PACKED, … Read More

Creative: Cuba Workshop Update Two

So I’m scheduled to teach in Cuba in December of this year. Havana and the countryside are the two main areas of focus. Personally, I wouldn’t care if we were only going to the airport. I’d still want to go. … Read More
