    How COVID-19 Has Affected My Photography Practice

    Like most photographers, COVID-19 has had a profound effect on my business and my creative outlet. Of course, jobs are harder to come by, a recession is looming, and there are some jobs I’m just physically unable to take on, but my photography practice has also changed far beyond these inconveniences.

    50 Things Photographers (or Any Artist/Creatives) Can Do During Lockdown

    During these worse times, like the world-spread novel pandemic COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the government implemented so-called social distancing, work-from-home, self-quarantine, shelter-in-place, and lockdown. Any activity to avoid the rapid spreading of the virus. Many photographers, artists, and designers' job offers and projects were canceled or deferred. Some may not be working, maybe furlough, or got laid off during this crisis. It can be a very hard time for everyone. It may be emotional or mentally stressful for us being caged not just for a few days but weeks and, hopefully, not for months.

    Sam Keller: Empowering Women Through The Lens

    Sam Keller: Empowering Women Through The Lens

    Sam and I met on a nature walk with friends in Boulder, Colorado by Lake Wonderland in the spring of 2014. She was shooting with a Yashica 124G using infrared film. We bonded over cameras and each other's photos on Instagram. Sam always has her style and aesthetic on point. She has become such an amazing photographer and powerful business woman, capturing stunning images of strong women. We reconnected last year when she moved to NYC and have since worked together on awesome projects, including the latest one she brought me into with Milk XYZ. Sam took photos and I made a behind the scenes video.

    Shooting With An Iphone

    The perfect shot comes into view, the lighting is almost surreal and the colors are bright, bold and beautifully contrasted. Everything needed for a memorable shot is there, but the only thing you can think is "If only I had a Sony or Canon, then I'd be able to get this on camera", and the scene is lost. We forget, though, the powerful device that resides in our pockets: our phones.

    Memories of Madrid

    Memories of Madrid

    Exploring new territory has always been something of a challenge for me. I yearn to see the World and all of the beautiful places within it, but it is also an overwhelming prospect. So whenever I do venture beyond the UK, it is safe to say I am terrified.
