    This Pandemic may be a cause for concern, however, it shouldn’t stop us from engaging with life. I for one constantly seek out new avenues for my self expression. My online course with Joel Meyerowitz has me thinking and seeing differently. The Classic Frame of 35mm has me spending time…

    To strip a scene of its colour is to see deeper into the Light. No Colour. Different shades of Grey. A relationship with the Shadow, Contrast and Hi-Lights. The great masters like Henri Cartier Brendon, Robert Kapa, Brassai all saw the world in shades of grey. I kind of miss…
