Really proud to have been interviewed by Passion Passport on my most resent trip to the Philippines to help with super typhoon #haiyan relief efforts.

You cannot use up all your creativity so let it flow freely.

Creativity is like the human muscular system. The more you exercise your creativity the stronger it becomes, the quicker it responds and the faster it recovers from being torn down.

It is in this “tear down and build up” process, that muscles become stronger and stronger.

@littlecoal, although I am sorry your muse, the #littlecoalshouse was torn down yesterday, I can’t wait to see what grows out of this destruction, not only in your photographic life but, also on this hallowed IG plot of earth.

Be looking for the new door that will open soon!

Some assembly required is code for “get ready to embed a hammer into your skull in frustration!” Happy Monday everyone.

Great behind the scenes look at our great collaboration with Atl Hotels and the #jj community. Really proud of this project and the great final collaborate mural turned out! Thank you everyone that contributed.

Watts of Love, a non-profit organization local to Chicago, partnered with PastBook to publish an ebook of their recent humanitarian trip to the Philippines. During this trip, Watts of Love delivered 1,000 solar lights to remote impoverished communities living without access to electricity. Photographer Kevin Kuster, also of Chicago, documented the trip using only his iPhone, and the pictures are nothing short of inspiring. In this guest post, he has shown us a part of the word we rarely see up in here in the Windy City. To read more click here…

I will be teaching two photography classes at Creator Gallery and want to encourage everyone that is interested in learning more about photography to attend. No matter what kind of camera you like to shoot, iPhone, DSLR, Point and Shoot, doesn’t matter. All camera types are welcome. Read all about it in today’s Kane newspaper

OLD SCHOOL EDITING

My most resent article published at TheAppWhisper.com.

If you have ever spent anytime with your face down and your eye looking through an Schnieder 4x photo loupe, then this is the article for you. If you’ve never used a photo loupe, check this quick read out and see how it’s still fun to roll “old school” while editing images.

Today is world photography day and “share your adventures of service week” at @kammok.

I can honestly say this IS the most meaningful image I have ever shot in my 20 year career. I just shot this image on my humanitarian trip last February with @watts_of_love.

Not only did this trip change my heart it also gave me a vision of how to use my photography skills to help people in such need.

Regrettably, up until this trip, I had never used my story telling and photography skills to create positive change and help others. Sad and regrettable but, brutally honest.

By providing these families living on Ilin Island without any electricity a clean solar light it changed their health, finances, lives and futures forever. It also changed how I view the world and plan on giving back.

I would love to hear how you are using your skills, time and talents to help create change? (at Ilin Island)
