Sally Mann thinks that best photographs are gifts. Few of my own thoughts on the topic.

Honored to have a feature on my photography and a few tips show up on +BorrowLenses.com's Blog today (company where I rented gear for years now!) in connection with Father's Day... Take a look here!
Being the family photographer is both a blessing and a curse - you're afforded the rare opportunity to constantly preserve memories while also trying to balance

BIG NEWS! The books are finally here. Two pallets arrived from Iceland this afternoon and are taking a quick break in my garage while I begin the work of printing the shipping labels and re-packaging them into individual boxes that will go out all over the world. I have a group of teenagers I know from my church that are coming over to help tomorrow night so we can get you the books as soon as we can. All orders should go out in the next couple of days - look for the shipping confirmation.

If you're local to Bay Area, and would like to pick up your copy/copies in person, you can drop by my house in San Jose and do that. I'll also be at work in Mountain View next week during the day, if that's closer. PLEASE LET ME KNOW ABOUT IT ASAP so I don't ship your book.

Lastly, we are almost sold out of the books! At my last count, only 30 or so copies are remaining for sale. If you still need one, grab one fast. We will not be doing another print run. You can order at http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Volume-III

PS - sorry about a boring mobile photo of the pallets. Too tired to try to create anything more interesting!

Given the size of the investment into Leica cameras and lenses, what advantages does Leica have that won me over and made me switch away from Nikon?

Good info +Ivan Makarov .
Love the look of the photos. After having sent my Fuji x100s into the shop for repairs a second time, I am considering a new body because like you, I do not enjoy carrying around my full frame Canon dslr and because of that, those most important moments with family often get missed or at best, captured with only a smart phone.

Love these thoughts on the virtue of working hard at what you love by my friend +Matt Gibson - and appreciate the mention!

Enjoy and share!
If you know what you want to be, then knowing what to do comes into focus.

Brought to you by popular demand (and thanks to all those who emailed me personally about this), #PlusOneCollectionIII  is now available in ebook format (high resolution downloadable PDF - looks amazing on big screens and tablets!). 

However, due to the work that goes along with this option, the ebook will only be on sale until the end of April. Please don't wait to get yours. 

Click on the link below to get your copy and also please share the news with your friends. 
Collection of beautiful photography from an online community of photographers submitting their art for a good cause, supporting "Saving Eliza" foundation.
