Pitch Your Photos Someplace that’s Catching

As amazing as the Vivian Maier story is-- one women’s body of work almost lost to time but rediscovered- most photographers don’t shoot photos with the intent of never showing them to the world.   While it’s easy to self publish, or put images up on places like Facebook and Instagram, many of us like to push ourselves and actually submit our photos for publication

Found Film: Now What?

Everyone finds a forgotten roll of film at least once in their lifetime-- in the back of a drawer, a box labeled “souvenirs, Niagara Falls,” or even in an old camera.  What to do? Can it be developed? How can you tell, and do you need some sort of specialist or just any local place that has a dark room and can develop the film?

Call it nostalgia, or maybe it’s just a new awareness of the wonders of physicality, but despite this being the digital age the world of photography was pretty print-focused this past few years. First, there’s the resurgence of Polaroid and other instant film formats. Once considered photographs relegated to albums from the seventies, or shoe boxes from the same era, instant film prints are making

Good pictures, like good investments, don’t happen with luck, but require many hours of diligence, analysis, and grueling work. Since as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted not only to see the world, but capture it along the way. My fascination with photography was more than just your typical, childish infatuation; I didn’t “dabble” with a point and shoot and lose interest when tempted
