Create: AG23 Contributor Series, Frank Jackson

Frank Jackson is an enigma. Or an anomaly. Or maybe he’s both? Where does he fit in? I don’t know and that is precisely why I find Frank so interesting. Want to know about analog photography? Talk to Frank. Want … Read More

Create: TOMORROWLAND, Sebastian Schlueter

I have to start this with a little tough love. (It’s the same tough love you have heard me provide again and again.) If you look at what Sebastian Schlueter has done with his magazine/book “TOMORROWLAND” and you still find … Read More

Create: Ten Words, Ten Photographers

I lied. There are eleven words and photographers. But who is counting? I did this same film as a YouTube Live last week or the week before, but I liked the content enough to redo it here with more information. … Read More

Create: Chris Lewtas in Print

Let’s all tip our hats to Chris Lewtas, someone I just met after he reached out to say “Hello.” Chris did what so many don’t. He went to print. Idea = action = critical thought = print. Well done. So … Read More

Create: Drew and Katja Cain

We gotta give this guy some love. When I saw the view count on this film I thought my system was broken. You know me, jaded when it comes to the power of books and magazines in a world obsessed … Read More

Create: Jesse Levine

So I gave a talk. It was a captive audience. They were winners and I had a chance to talk at them. A small but potent group. Filmmakers, photographers, writers. You know, creative types. From the far reaches of the … Read More

Create: How to Sell Out

Create: Things I Wish I Knew

I’ve been remiss at posting the films I’m sending to Advancing Your Photography on YouTube. I think if most people knew what my life was actually like they would shake their head in both bewilderment and perhaps even a dusting … Read More

Create: Nómade, Martin Herrera Soler

I’m about to rave. Prepare yourself. Uruguay is a peculiar place. Here in the good, old US of A we rarely hear anything about this South American gem of a country. Sure, Uruguay is home to the greatest footballer of … Read More

Create: Advancing your Photography

Hey, let’s talk about me. My favorite subject. I’ve worked with Marc Silber before. Been to his studio, talked photography, talked history, process and the ever-changing world of image-making. I like Marc and I like Marc’s “kind” meaning those people … Read More

Creative: Selfie Book, Esben Melbye

Esben is Danish. Need I say more. This means he’s eccentric, speaks an ancient, impossible to learn or understand language and is prone to bouts of cycling, beer drinking, and wild adventure. You would like him. I badgered him for … Read More

Creative: Old Promo Piece

I’m a huge fan of print media. I know, you’re shocked. And when I say “print media,” I don’t just mean magazines, portfolios, books, etc. I mean marketing collateral as well. The image you are viewing here goes back to … Read More

Creative: Book Fail, Year Zero

I recently had the need to downsize, to thin out, eliminate and make those tough decisions. Does it stay or does it go? As you can imagine, I’ve got a stockpile of books that could keep an oil drum burning … Read More

Creative: For What It’s Worth Episode 002

Just what you wanted for the holiday. Another podcast. Back by insatiable public demand, episode two. I cover The Homeless Backpack Project, enlightenment, politics, immigration, my life in cameras and the odd demise of modern Apple. Yep, I’m gonna keep … Read More

Creative: Vlog 0008

Wow, look at me. Look how macho I am. I’m trending! All about me, me, me. So, this vlog is what happens when someone doesn’t really have time to vlog. I am thinking of starting a podcast, outside of my … Read More
