Shoot First, Edit Never

Graava is a camera/app combo that is supposed to make it easier for you to actually do something with all the footage you acquire.

A tale of two Grabkes


Two different Claus Grabke boards featured in unrelated fashion shoots. I’m still trying to track the source of the one on the left,t’s doubtful it was commissioned by the gelato company. The one on the right has an Underwear Expert watermark, which is a good place to go get your dong on.


Here’s a tip; Get a job!


I saw this add for the online freelance market Upwork.com on Facebook while I was neglecting my own freelance duties. Also, I’m not sure if I’m using the semicolon properly in this post title, so maybe copy proofing is not the job for me. Apparently this guy’s “highly specialized project” was shooting some sort of […]
