Ike and I have had the pleasure of being photographers for the last eleven years and although there have been plenty of sweet moments, what most people don’t know are the very long nights that led into even longer mornings; the huge mistakes; the failures; and the […]
Finding affordable education can be really hard to do. Ike and I, and our family, had the opportunity to join B & H for their annual Depth of Field Conference, back in February (just two weeks before Covid-19 got really bad) in New York City.
