Beyond the childhood clichés

Firstly, thanks Vernon for the invite to do a spot of guest writing here on BMP! Out of all the topics I could possibly write about in the vast photographic world- I have decided just on the spur of the moment, to write about the psychology and sociology of the children’s portraiture photo session and […]

What the Duck!

I had a great start to the week, when a friend sent me a link to this comic strip featuring a photographer duck! Many of you may have heard of it earlier, but many may have not, which is why the post. I’ve never been a comic book fanatic, but yeah I’ve read my share […]

Memories… The first step in my photographic journey…

Hello beautiful people! I have a question for you. Do you remember the first picture you took? The first vacation you went on with your own camera? The first photo trip with fellow shutterbugs?
