The Art of Seeing Photographically

A 101 page book to help you learn to see photographically. Take control of your gear and create more impactful imagery.

Whether you photograph landscapes, still-life, people, or anything in between, the goal of this book is to help you put more intent in your photography. Each section is filled with examples drawn from my own collection as well as assignments to give you a little push to go out with your camera and practice a new technique or learn to see in a new way.

It never hurts to go back to basics, no matter how long you’ve been a photographer or what the degree of expertise you think you have.

#DoSomethingForNothing NYC with Joshua Coombes

“Everyone has the power to #DoSomethingForNothing. We’re not raising awareness, we’re raising compassion. We’re mobilizing people globally to spread love in their communities. Changing the way in which we interact with one another, across the globe.” ~ Joshua Coombes

Josh and I had the opportunity to team up and work together on the streets of New York City in September and the experience was life changing. 

 

I wish to help Josh continue his important work any way I can and hopefully document it as often as possible.

Thanks to some amazing volunteers, we just published an eBook to help raise some funds for #DoSomethingForNothing. Any donation, small or large, will help make the world a little brighter, one person at a time. Thank you for your support!
