Creative: Cover Design, Different Image

To follow my prior posts regarding cover design, I’ve gone one step further by showing you four covers with different designs and images. I want you to see and feel how dramatically different the publication feels while varying from image … Read More

Creative: Is Photography Still Worth It?

I have no special right to question the validity of modern photography outside of the fact I have basic rights to question almost anything, but this particular idea is front and center in my mind because I’ve had some time … Read More

Creative: Cover Design, Same Image

I’ve done cover design posts before, but I think this one is a good one. At least a good visual post. I created this post because I see a lot of bad covers coming through the Blurb network.(I see plenty … Read More

Creative: A Special Moment

I was invited on an early morning boat trip down the coast. The reason for the trip was very personal and not something I want to share here, but I do want to share a few of the images. I … Read More

Read: Braving It

Books like Braving It are like candy to me. You open, start eating and suddenly you are on a serious sugar high. Alaska, father and daughter, epic conditions and the ever changing land and family relationships. I did a five-day … Read More

Adventure: California Training

I’m in big trouble. Real trouble. My brain is again feeling free. For the first time in four years. Not perfect, just free. I tend to change my life dramatically every five years or so, and I can feel another … Read More

Dispatches: Esha Chiocchio

Yes, I did a composite image. I just felt like Esha is a blend of so many things that an image like this made sense. You can tell a lot about someone by spending time around their children, and Esha … Read More

Creative: First Blurb Layflat Sample

Fellow Passengers, Blurb now has layflat. You asked for it. Here it is. Now go forth and prosper, or better yet, do a test book and see how this new format fits your visual, tangible world. That’s what I did. … Read More

Creative: The Sickness Returns

Yes I own a tripod. Yes I have blue laces. Deal with it. A funny thing happened the other day. I was up north exploring, scouting, looking for images and suddenly I felt like I wanted to make good photographs … Read More

Creative: New Mexico Scouting

Scouting for what? Hmm. Roads for cycling. Hikes. Photographs. New friends. Adventure. The arch enemy of boredom.(I can’t remember being bored in my entire adult life.) I know what you are thinking. “Man, Milnor is full of shit.” You are … Read More

Adventure: The History of MR Angus

As many of you know, I spend part of my childhood on a ranch in Wyoming. I recently traveled there to see old friends and attempt to make a project. My dad’s ranch partner, Juan Reyes, called me yesterday and … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico Training

I’m a cycling God. You should know this by now. I’m lying. Average at best. Today was fun because I was unprepared. Now, a temperature of 39 might be balmy to you but not to me. I had no gloves … Read More

Creative: Dan Winters at Art Center

I swear that is Matrix code above his head. Dan Winters. Photographer. Yet calling him this, or giving him this title, comes up short. Yes, he’s a photographer and one of the best, most important working today but he is … Read More

Read: Homo Deus

Just go get it. Get this book. I haven’t read Yuval Noah Harari’s book Sapiens, which came out a few years ago but I’m glad I found Homo Deus. This book brings up so many things, ideas, concepts and contemplation … Read More

Creative: Anatomy of Mood

Three images shot within two minutes of one another. Bing, bang, boom. Rain, night, artifacts. A lone camera and lens. Light and composition. This is actually the kind of photography I find myself doing more than anything else, which is … Read More

Creative: Notes from a Photographer Lunch

I don’t know if there is any better use of photography than this little sample. Two of my favorite people in the world. Kent Hall behind the camera, delivering us this little beauty, and Michael Napper on the right of … Read More

Read: Lost City of the Monkey God

If you can’t get excited about finding a lost city in the jungle then you might already be dead. As you know, I’ve read Doug Preston before and I will read him again. Love what he does. ADVENTURE people. It … Read More

Creative: Blurb as Promo

I’m not entirely sure how many promotional pieces I created during my photography career but I’m guessing it was somewhere between fifty and one hundred. I’ve saved some but many are long lost to the annals of my tragic, flawed … Read More
