I’m a Photographer Because I’m a Dad

3 Easy Steps to Backup Your Photos

You wouldn’t leave an old family album in a damp woodshed or shove priceless polaroids under your mattress.

Strike while the Iron is Cold

We’ve all heard the saying strike while the iron is hot; I’ve even used it myself.  The meaning behind this is pretty straight-forward: when opportunity presents itself, capitalize on it.  Sounds easy enough.  But no one ever talks about what to do if the aforementioned “opportunity” never presents itself to begin with.  The origin of the […]

3 Tips for Taking Better Photos

The Backstory: I still vividly remember my first experience with a “nice camera.”  It was over a decade ago, and I spent around $600 for a Canon Rebel digital SLR camera.  I fervently but meticulously opened up the packaging and held the shiny new hunk of black plastic in my hand and felt a swell of pride as […]

Time Doesn’t Stand Still

On the contrary, time is at a full-on sprint forward, and whether we’re running in the race or just watching from the sidelines, the pace is unforgiving.  Our daughter is days away from her third birthday (which is killing me by the way).  And with the milestone approaching, I took some time this week to look through some […]
