  1. Looking for some of my most popular blog posts? These 4 are updated throughout the year. What other resources would you like to see?

  2. (Updated 9/1/17) I just returned from 4 days of photo-related festivities in NYC. The mothership of the week is the PhotoPlus Expo at the Javits convention center, with other events happening around the same time to capitalize on having so many photographers in town at once. Every night there are parties and book signing and openings. Aside from all seeing old friends and meeting new creatives and photographers, I spent most of my time during the day doing portfolio reviews at the PDN/Palm Springs Portfolio Review. This was probably my 15th organized review event and I thought it’d be helpful …

  3. Lauren and I recently completed updating her website: http://laurenedith.com/. We reworked her galleries to emphasize her mix of interiors and spaces, with a focus on California and it’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle. I love the way it came out, and now have some serious wanderlust for a trip to Northern California. Check out the beautiful photos of the factory where handmade wallpaper is crafted (in the Work, Shop gallery). Stunning!

  4. There’s nothing like the craziness of working a big, busy festival with a talented crew of photographers, videographers, PR pros and social media managers creating and sharing content. Each day can easily bring in over 10,000 images, and looking through them all, captioning them, choosing the best ones for social and PR and curating galleries is exhilarating (and a bit exhausting, but that’s what cold brew coffee is for!) I’ve had the pleasure of working on some of Texas’ premiere events, from pre-production through final editing and distribution to media outlets, including: Austin City Limits Festival Texas Book Festival Texas …

  5. It’s been three years (!) since the last Texas Photo Roundup, an event that I co-produced for four years with the talented, hard-working photographers Kimberly Davis and Matthew Mahon. Would I ever do it again? Well, I’m not sure. It’s a TON of work but also incredibly satisfying work. Bringing together art buyers, photo editors and photographers from around the country was an amazing experience that reminded me of why I love the photo community. Over the four years we produced a wide variety of events, including workshops, portfolio reviews, lectures, gallery talks and silent auctions. Photographers who spoke or …

  6. Bay Area-based Vivian Johnson specializes in interiors and editorial images that highlight the California lifestyle. We have worked together numerous times over the last few years to update her portfolio and create email marketing campaigns.

  7. Looking for some inspiration! Check out my pinterest board of great photography promo ideas:

  8. Nelson, BC-based Kari Medig recently reached out to me for a website update. We have worked together before and I always enjoy seeing his new work. He has a beautiful approach to portraiture, capturing people in their environments in a way that gives the viewer a deeper understanding of the subject. His work has appeared in Outside, AFAR, Monocle, Telegraph Magazine, The Atlantic, The Globe and Mail and he has shot commercially for Google, Rogers Wireless and The North Face.  

  9. Zurich-based Djamila Grossman contacted me to re-think her approach to her online portfolio. Together, we created new galleries that show her distinct approach to documentary photography and will appeal to the kinds of clients she wants to be working for.  

  10. I recently wrapped up a project with British Columbia-based Ilja Herb. We created new galleries and updated the design. I love his approach to capturing people and remote locations.  

  11. I worked with DC-based Edgar Artiga on creating new lifestyle and sports print portfolios that highlight his bright, natural style. We also updated his website, check it out at www.artigaphoto.com. Save
