  Never seek for a good picture – you have to learn when it comes to you.  Therefore I try to always carry a camera. I am a married man with three children living in the northern part of Norway. I am not a photographer by living – just a serious amateur.  My favorite activity is walking on the mountains winter and summer. Often I go with my wife and I want to thank her for her patience. You often see her in front of my camera. For the last two years… Read More

Bio I love reading about people who were given cameras as children and ‘WHOOSH” that was it! The photography whoosh visited me much later in life. Coming from working class South Wales, I spent most of my childhood bunking off school, making rope swings and generally creating havoc for my grandmother. Nobody really had a camera. If there is one thing that I can pinpoint as a catalyst for creativity in my mad childhood and adolescence, it is a memory of a person seeing in a different way. In the town in… Read More

Bio I’ve had two passions in life.  Bikes and photography.  I got involved with motorcycles at an early age because they were cheaper than cars.  I got involved with photography working on the High School newspaper and Year Book.  After High School I joined the US Army and spent the next 20 years riding motorcycles and taking pictures all over the world. My only formal training in Photography was a correspondence course thru New York Institute of Photography.  Back then all military bases had a Photo Craft Shop.  Many had very well… Read More

  Bio I am a Colombian mother of 3 beautiful children that moved to Miami in 1993…then I moved to Canada 7 years ago.  I never before had the opportunity to land my hands on a camera . The first time was when I met my husband when he taught me how to take pictures.  Having a camera in my hands for me is like writing a book… I love to capture the soul of  my images and express myself.  I love the idea of looking though the lens and being able to… Read More

Bio I came to the realization, upon leaving New York City, that life was happening too fast to be captured in words. As I was leaving, and going in the direction of Europe, I desperately needed to freeze-frame the world I was leaving, and the one ahead of me. I borrowed a camera and my upstairs neighbor, photographer and painter, Fred Bell, gave me a crash course in photography. It was a totally emotional decision. My actual field was music, the piano. I studied piano, loved to teach, and was working for… Read More

Bio The best pictures tell an unfinished story, with a sense of place or personality – questions of what, where, when, how. I like to think that my photography, at its core, is always about telling this story. Or more correctly, it’s about conveying a portion of the story, a small moment in someone’s life that makes us ask questions about who they are, what they’re doing, what they’re thinking, and how they ended up in the photo. The photographer’s craft includes both the narration (the story) and the curation (the moment of… Read More

Gear Review: Sony RX100 Mark 3 by Rick Bronks

The Sony RX100 Mark 3 http://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-rx100m3 PRICE: (as of July 2014) : £699 I must get asked 2 or 3 times a week about which camera to buy – and it usually always ends up with the same conclusion. A camera is only as good as the days you have it with you, so it’s really up to you to decide if you want a camera that you keep with you all the time or only pull out on special occasions. I thought I’d write this one as a user, and possibly… Read More
