The Art of Editing, with Paul Zizka

Editing images is an underrated part of the creative process in photography. For many photographers, it can be the limiting factor to stronger images (whether they are aware of it or not). Good processing skills can often make the difference between a great image and an exceptional one.

2013 in 113 images – A Photo Narrative

Hello everyone! I hope 2013 was a fantastic year for you all.

I have been just amazed by all the support I have received this year. Thank you so, so much to everyone who took time to view the photographs and to interact through the social media channels. Initially I had so many great intentions for this traditional end-of-year post – thoughts on the state of photography, the trends of the photo business, what I’ve learned this year, what I hope to implement in 2014.
