If you ever wanted to pursue photography full-time, experiment with film, or learn more about shooting panoramics on a Hasselblad Xpan, check out this video interview I did with my manager and good friend +Neil Ta!
I just had a recent chat with my manager and good friend Neil Ta. Neil is a professional photographer based in Toronto (shoots wedding and commercial work), and his passion is photography. He has dabbled in many different genres of photography, including "urbex" (urban exploration), "rooftopping"

I just did a fun interview with my good friend Karl Edwards (he runs StreetShootr) and has a blast chatting about his start in street photography, his tension between shooting film and digital, practical tips on how to shoot with a Leica, his favorite photography books, and why he likens shooting

If you need a little photography inspiration or motivation, I think you will enjoy this article: "Be a Photography Shark: Keep Swimming or Die"
London, 2014 In “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron, I came across this interesting idea: that creativity is like a shark. If sharks stop swimming, even for a minute, they will sink to the bottom of the ocean and die. A lot of things in life are about momentum– about creating positive

Just made a fun video with Karl Edwards (from StreetShootr) on why I'm switching back to black and white film (tri-x pushed to 1600) for my street photography! 
In this video I talk to Karl Edwards from StreetShootr on why I plan on switching back to black and white film (Kodak Tri-X pushed to 1600) and we just geek out about black and white film in general, enjoy! If you want to learn how to shoot street photography on film, I recommend reading these

If you love the work of Vivian Maier, this will be an interesting article on Street Shootr: "Jeffrey Goldstein On Why He's Suing Vivian Maier's Estate"
Jeffrey Goldstein (who once owned the 2nd largest collection of Vivian Maier negatives) filed suit against the Vivian Maier Estate. Ironic to say the least.

If you're curious what I've been up to, I share a life update! Some things on my plate: switching to black and white film, reading more stoic and zen buddhism, and random life musings on the blog! 
Kodak Tri-X pushed to 1600, locked and loaded. Dear streettogs, Life is good in Berkeley! Just finished a fun 1-day intensive street photography portrait crash course workshop in SF, and after meeting all the great students, I’m more pumped up to write articles, produce content, and share

One of the best burgers I've ever had! Tall ceilings, burger is super tender and juicy, and the salad was spot on. Highly recommended :)
