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: The One

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
