In June, I attended NYC Fotoworks. At the moment, portfolio reviews seem to offer the second best way to get in front of buyers that might hire you. I signed up for NYC Fotoworks mostly for this reason, although I was at the tail end of revamping my book, so actual portfolio reviews were a [...]

I know, who cares about portfolios? I just tweet links to my Dropbox pdfs or whatever. Whatever! I’m still using my red portfolio, but I recently added a black leather book, because there are a few people who react badly to the red one, I thought I’d make something just for them. After asking around [...]

Following up on the success of the original Helpful Ideas for Busy Dads, I’ve created a batch of new, time-saving ideas for dads everywhere. When a regular bib is insufficient, try MaxiBib.

I finished this awhile back. Well, “finished” anyway. Heretofore, it’s been difficult to find enough pictures to put in my book. This time around, I’m doing double-sided pages and I’m still pushing the physical limit of the book, so here’s to making pictures.
