CREATIVITY IS WEIRD!
December 31, 2020

Creativity is considered by most to be a mysterious thing. We do not know where it comes from or how to nurture it. Having engaged actively in different creative forms I believe that creativity is weird. Not all times but sometimes it does get very strange when engaging our creativity. Have you ever realized that you get your best ideas when you are doing the strangest things. Taking a shower, taking a walk, skinny dipping, dancing to rhumba, you...

YOU DO NOT NEED NEW GEAR IN 2021
December 18, 2020

Since the beginning of December, I have been receiving questions on the best camera to buy for photography. This question has been coming from two groups of people. One, individuals who want to start learning photography and two, people interested in engaging in Photography (enthusiasts).  If you happen to fall into any of these two categories then the best camera to buy is a CAMERA PHONE.    I can only imagine the shock on your face right now...

As I look back, I feel this was a wrong approach to have as a beginner. I carried forward so...

I knew that at some point I wanted to earn a living from photography but really had no idea whom to apprentice under. Instead of sitting around and waiting for someone to teach me the craft, I bought my own camera and began practising as much as I could. I studied as much as I could form online...
