Best Camera To Get If You Want To Be A Filmmaker.
Hands down the best camera for someone who wants to get into Filmmaking is the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k. I have been in the filmmaking business since DV was a thing. You might not even know what that is, and that’s ok. The HDSLR’s movement revolutionized the industry. Affordable film-like quality at the lowest price point ever. Sure an HDSLR is cheaper than the Blackmagic and you get a beautiful depth of field but it's not as good as the BMPCC 4k for various reasons.
Is a Film Scanner Worth Buying?
Ever since I started scanning my own film, I've had a lot of questions as to whether or not purchasing a film scanner is really worth it. Do you need a film scanner, or should you just keep getting your scans from your lab? It's probably not a question as old as time, but it's sure a popular question nevertheless.
Photography Lessons from William Eggleston
William Eggleston is credited as one of the pioneers of color photography. In a time where the fine art photography world was consumed with black and white, Eggleston's use of color, his snapshot-like aesthetic, and banal subject matter was received with some backlash.
Our Nostalgic Collective
The classic ride parked in the carport of a mid-century home at the top of a well-watered green hill. A rundown gas station, desolate, neon glowing in the mist of night. A laundromat full of chrome, empty except for a handsome young man in a white T-shirt, jeans, and red Converse high-tops. The scenes of an America once hailed the world over as prosperous, advanced; an America gone; one that, perhaps, only ever existed in our imagination.
Kodak Tri-X 400: Initial Thoughts
Generally speaking, I'm not a photographer who shoots a lot of black and white. When it comes to film, before this roll, I had only ever shot one roll of black and white and, to be honest, it was an accident:
I'm a Better Photographer Because of Flickr
I first joined Flickr many years ago because I used to see photos from the site displayed on Yahoo!, loved what I saw and wanted to be part of it. I aspired to take wonderful photos like the ones I was seeing.
5 Unusual Habits of Successful Photographers
The best photographers have a process. A workflow. They’ve developed habits that enable them to produce consistently high-quality pictures, almost every time. Some of those habits may seem a bit unusual to the rest of us.
Where Theres Muck Theres Brass
Now then mucka, welcome to the land of chip ‘oyles’ (fish and chips shops), ‘growlers’ (pork pies) and bingo daubers. A wonderful place where a night out will cost you twenty quid, including your kebab, cheesy chips and taxi fare home. A place of hard graft, grit and perseverance, where your mates have always got your back and you’ve always got theirs. I’m talking of Barnsley, the most unique town you’ve never heard of, except we don’t say town, we say tarn.
Do People Know You Are a Photographer?
I’m not talking about full-time professionals with a studio or a wedding photographer. I’m talking about part-timers or stock or nature photographers that do most work in private and isolated from the public. I try to always have business cards on hand, and I’ve covered my office walls with my work, to create a conversation about my photography. But how many casual acquaintances know that photography is a craft and business that I am pursuing?
Photo Walks: Utah's Road Island Diner
At some point on Saturday morning, a friend and I decided we wanted to go on a road trip. Only a few hours before we left, we decided to make the drive from Provo, Utah up to Oakley, Utah in order to check out this retro diner we’d seen photos of on Instagram.

Photographerlife. Or not.
So, I'm a photographer. A pro, a professional. Someone who gets paid for their work. (Often the only difference between a pro and and none pro is Public Liability insurance and a tax return. Having that 'Pro' status doesn't make anyone better than anyone else. I'm under no illusion! )
