Warbird Street Scenes

The Atlanta Warbird Weekend (AWW) at the Peachtree-DeKalb Airport in Atlanta is “dedicated to the remembrance and celebration of the men, women and machines of The Greatest Generation.” For me, it was also a small window of opportunity to capture a different angle on street photography.

Quick Tips on Photographic Visual Story Telling

A few years ago I took a visual storytelling class for photography and I never forgot it. It has served me with a good foundation for most of my photoblog posts since – and I hope one day when I get the time to create my book, it will serve me then. For now, I would like…

Cool Canadians

Color Street Photography Around The Earl With 35mm Fuji Superia

  The Earl is not only what I’d consider the king of East Atlanta’s music hot spots with a tasty, affordable bar menu, but it’s also to me, the most colorful and laid back bars in the city where anyone can just hang out and be his or herself. So this why I chose The Earl to sit down one…
