Making Time For A Personal Project, Radek Úlehla Travels From Prague to Lisbon to Photograph the Champalimaud Foundation

Meet my new friend Radek Úlehla, an architectural photographer from Prague. Radek instantly made me feel old, as he is just a spry 26, but then made it up to me by telling me how punk this shoot was — traveling far, fighting the weather, and inevitably getting kicked out by security. It’s a great story with great images, which I appreciate.

Prime Members Get Unlimited Storage On Amazon Photos – A Cloud Backup Alternative to Google Photos

While it maybe wasn’t as great for backing up photos as it was for compressing them, Google Photos was a perfect platform to use as an easy-to-access online portfolio that was always in your pocket. I was using it extensively, not just for sharing the photos from photography trips with my friends, but also to send images to my clients for fast reviews before the final delivery.

The Story of an Image – Woods Bagot’s Guohua Financial Center in Chongqing

The second installment of my recently created Story of an Image series takes us to the western Chinese city of Chongqing – a massive, uninhibited metropolis that most people outside China may not have even heard of.  While my previous article took you through my thought process for a non-commissioned portfolio capture, this time we’re on the clock working for global design firm, Woods Bagot, tasked with photographing both the exterior as well as the interior public areas of their Guohua International Financial Center project. 

Can Exposure Pay The Bills? Mass Collective Talks Licensing and Pricing in ‘CREDIT FOR BREAKFAST’

It seems like more than ever, architectural photographers are battling copyright infringement, ignorance towards licensing, and confusion over usage rights — not to mention the dreaded “but this will be great exposure” remark.

3D Print Lightforge’s Camranger2 Arca Plate Adapter

I love when I see Dennis Radermacher’s name in my inbox because it means he has conjured up another brilliant 3D printed solution to one of the many small frustrations we photographers run into.

For those of us who have made it part of our workflow, I think we can all agree that the Camranger platform is incredible and powerful, but leaves something to be desired when it comes to —well—where to put it.
