Creative: Creative Pro Week Day Four and Goodbye

Yep, it’s over. We have packed up from our fruitful week of POD books, custom offset books, magazines, eBooks, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and as you can see, lots and lots and lots of cake and Coke. Not me eating these … Read More

Creative: Creative Pro Week Day Three

Okay, so these images have nothing to do with Creative Pro Week which is going really well, but I spent most of my time talking yesterday and didn’t make any new images. I did carry my camera around all day … Read More

Creative: Creative Pro Week Day Two

(Turn any city into Stalingrad via Lightroom!) The world unraveling, or so it seems, but people power on. Here in Atlanta the day calls for creative thoughts, education, sharing and further understanding of the electronic backbone of our creative culture…software. … Read More

Creative: Creative Pro Week Day One

A muggy sameness. Outside the hotel. 11:15PM and 6:15AM precisely the same. A blanket of humidity. Void of movement. Dark patches splintered by light. Flashing security lights from a vacant mall. The broken chatter of guards trying to come down … Read More

Creative: ESSAY Magazine Previews

Hey Team, First two issues are live and up for grabs. Issue three is coming soon. I wanted to post previews just for fun and to test something. I’m also trying to decide what Issue Five is going to be. … Read More

Creative: A Few Things I’ve Learned

1. There is no time to wait. Whatever it is you are doing, do it now. Publishing, photography, projects, experimentations. You have people who talk and wait for the perfect moment, and you have others who just do. The doers … Read More

Creative: Morning Festival Journal

“Friday morning is always about what is left of the people who went big after the sun fell behind the mountain. Voices gone, bad colds, alcohol laden bodies. Survivors of free wine and borrowed spirits. With friends, hair down, just … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day Four

Look, I’m a bigshot! Fact. Our art book class was off the hook. The students brought great work, made prints, brought glue and scissors and dove into their blank books with abandon. By 2PM they left with working samples of … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day Three

Michelle adding my name to the signage… Today was about one thing. Books. Co-teaching with Michelle Dunn Marsh, we dove into day one of our art book class. I’m lucky to be able to teach with Michelle. The morning session … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day Two

I’m not beyond a shameless plug. Day Two. On the move. Remember in Crocodile Dundee Two when the bad guys are camping and Mick comes running through camp in the middle of the night with a giant snake? You don’t … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day One

This isn’t a normal life, nor is the speed in which the festival sucks you in. Home to car to highway to parking lot to hotel to festival to warp speed. Minutes, seconds. Friends. Scenarios. Deals. Partnerships. Collaborations. Potential. So … Read More

Creative: Off to the Palm Springs Photo Festival

I’m off to Connect 2017 otherwise known as The Palm Springs Photo Festival. If you love photography and love to get photographically wild then you simply must attend. This is unlike any other event in the United States. Just look … Read More

Creative: Leica Gallery Exhibition

So I went to Los Angeles. Most people think I’m in Los Angeles all the time, but that is far from the truth. I avoid LA as much as humanly possible. I can’t handle the traffic, congestion, residue of Hollywood … Read More

Creative: Killing Time in San Francisco

Not really. I dream about killing time, but rarely get the time to do it. I was in San Francisco for work, completed a short portrait session then booked over to The Mission to see some old friends. Creative friends. … Read More

Creative: The Freak Diaries

The swamp is still full of and rising faster by the minute. Okay, after one hundred days it’s apparent we elected a complete buffoon to the office of President. (He might be worse than unboxing videos.) He’s shown he has … Read More

Creative: Blurb Stop

(Sydney based super creative Jess Scully.) I’ve never written much about my visits to Blurb. Not sure why because there is always a lot going on. Cool, talented people doing cool and talented things. Yesterday I was asked to volunteer … Read More

Creative: Finally, a Selfie

Yes, I’m doing selfies now. Lots and lots of selfies. It took me years, and I had to print it first before rephotographing it, so it’s a super slow selfie, but it’s a selfie nonetheless. I am my favorite subject … Read More

Creative: Doodle Time

Postcards going out… I’m trying to make something, create something, write something or print something every single day. Not for any purpose other than making. No attempt to gain fame, audience, following or money. Doodling. Not drooling, DOODLING. Big difference. … Read More
