World Backup Day…

A few years ago I wrote a blog post about World Backup Day.  (read about it here).  Now, a few years later I think it’s about time that this topic is revisited as we once again land on World Backup Day.  If you don’t back up your work in at least two places; you should. …Read More


A 1 Pound Baby…

At the end of last year, I had an incredible opportunity to meet and photograph a miracle.  This miracle was named Juniper and when she was born (6.5 years before the time of this writing) she weighed only 1 pound.  She was the size and weight of a Squirrel, or so I am told.  Here…Read More

The Hardest Part…

Over the last several years a common question I get about freelancing is the one about how difficult it is. Looking for work, keeping clients happy, delivering things in a timely fashion, buying and maintaining equipment.  All of the above.  Honestly freelancing is difficult but the most difficult part isn’t what everybody assumes that it…Read More
