Photographers love to create beautiful, interesting, and unique photographs. We carry several pounds of gear on our backs through forests and mountains to find beautiful and sought-after scenes. When we finally find something amazing and photograph it, it’s a wonderful feeling knowing that we’re are not repeating the same cliché photograph that hundreds or thousands of other photographers […]

I am a very lucky guy. I grew up in a household with parents who immigrated from Russia with absolutely nothing to their names and who worked so hard chasing the classic American Dream.

I just finished watching a recent episode of The Grid, where they discuss critiquing the work of  amateur photographers and how it is easy to be led astray. I’m sure we’ve all seen awful photos posted online and wondered what the photographer was thinking when they decided to share it. Sure, we all have to start somewhere, but no […]
