How Google’s G-Suite Helps my Photography Business

Days Away Creative is my wedding photography business.  For years I was using a mix of Apple’s iWork suite paired with iCloud and Microsoft Office 365.  They worked just ok.  Each had some limitations in file sharing and more importantly collaborative productivity.  Even when using BOX’s cloud service the collaboration was terrible. So after yearsContinue reading “How Google’s G-Suite Helps my Photography Business”

How I Continue Learning Photography

I believe education is one of the most important assets we have.  Perhaps why I work in higher education.  But I think it is important to have a laser focus when it comes to your education.  I spent 4 years as an undergraduate that lacked focus and it’s still impacting me today.  Certain areas don’tContinue reading “How I Continue Learning Photography”

Unique Way To Backup Your Photos On The Go

As photographers we are always looking to make sure that our most important (or our clients most important) photos are protected. As I’ve been shooting weddings this summer the photos and video I’m capturing are arguably the most important images I can’t afford to lose. I’ll go into the fine details of my extremely repetitiveContinue reading “Unique Way To Backup Your Photos On The Go”

Layering, Long Exposure, and Night Photography

With the weather finally getting nicer here in the North East I’m taking plenty of opportunities to get out and do some night photography.  Living here in Philadelphia traditional landscape opportunities are limited but cityscapes are in full force. I’ve been working with some creative long exposures including star trails and the Milky Way.  IContinue reading “Layering, Long Exposure, and Night Photography”

Is The Winter Drought Over?

Winter can be challenging for photographers in the Northeast.  Especially if it’s not your full time job.  As someone who works a 9-5 it’s very difficult to find inspiration to shoot.  Many photographers also struggle with inspiration when they don’t leave their city/town enough. The golden hour is frequently spent at the office and youContinue reading “Is The Winter Drought Over?”

“Happiness Is All Around You. Open Your Eyes And Embrace It. It’s Contagious.”

Damien LeRoy, maybe a name you haven’t heard of.  If you have you’re very lucky. I’ve never done a profile piece on anyone before but I think this individual is worth talking about. Damien LeRoy is a professional kiteboarder from Vail, Colorado, currently residing in Jupiter, Florida. I discovered Damien in early 2013 as he,Continue reading ““Happiness Is All Around You.

News Flash If You Hated Your Job In 2017, You’ll Still Hate It In 2018.

Jesus Christ people… I can’t open a single social media app without being inundated with people complaining about going back to work… I get it.  Some of these are probably just to get a laugh people but a lot aren’t.  I’m not completely oblivious to think that everyone loves what they do but you’ve gotContinue reading “News Flash If You Hated Your Job In 2017, You’ll Still Hate It In 2018.”

Life is Short. Live Your Dream and Share Your Passion.

Realizing that I purchased my original domain and webspace one year ago today it felt appropriate to reflect on why. Social media quickly became a place to share every thought, cup of coffee, and/or photo of your pets/kids.  That is a fine way to get a quick fix of dopamine but that’s really it.  WhenContinue reading “Life is Short. Live Your Dream and Share Your Passion.”

Tips for Tony

I met Tony a few month ago playing this upright piano that found it’s way to Head House Square in Philadelphia, PA.  There were about a dozen of people listening to him play and he was kind enough to let me take this photo. I’ve gotten to know Tony a little through brief conversations inContinue reading “Tips for Tony”
