Mitchell Kanashkevich is probably one of the most talented photographers I know. He has gotten that way by shooting continuously. Mitch doesn’t stop — or at least not for long. It was during one of these quick respites that I was able to catch up with him and find out what he has been up to over the past two years since we last spoke. In a word: Africa. Mitch has spent the last year or more slowly traveling through Africa. In this hour long interview we talk about his adventures, misadventures and his entrepreneurial adventures. Mitch has started a new e-book publishing house called EyeVoyage where he has published his latest titled called Powerful Imagery: The Photographer’s Insight.

I have been wanting to write a lengthy review of a very precise nature filled with my musings on the amazing new e-book by Gavin Gough called The Photographers Workflow. But frankly, I am much too lazy. There is just way too much to cover. So I simply rang up Gavin on Skype and had a nice long chat about his book.
Remember when you check out use the discount code: baldguys for $10 off. (This code is good only through Feb 8th, 2013)
There really is no need for me to go into much detail here other than to say this is one of the best e-book values on the market today. Don’t think that $30 ($20 if you use the discount “baldguys”) is a lot for an e-book. If this was some 20 to 30 page e-book taking what you already know then, yes, maybe. But it is not. Gavin has gone into an amazing amount of detail on two of the most uses modules of Lightroom, the Library module and the Develop module. Continue reading →
I am tickled pink to be able to announce the new Craft and Vision Community that David duChemin and the fine folks at Craft and Vision have been inspired to create. I am excited, partly because I am intimately involved in one particular aspect of the Craft and Vision Community and that is the podcast. Every month David and I will be hosting a podcast that will be filled with discussions and interviews as well as an image critique. Each month we create an assignment asked listeners to submit an image from that assignment for critique. David and I will pick an image and will discuss it using principles from his upcoming book Photographically Speaking.
This is a community that will develop over time and deepen. Till Sept 30th you can join the community for a yearly subscription of only $89. After that the price will go up. There really isn’t a price you can put for inspiration and creativity that will last a lifetime. I hope to see you in the Craft and Vision Community.
