Tatevik Vardanyan is a commercial and editorial photographer based in Yerevan, Armenia. But her first love is Street Photography. She already has a very strong portfolio of not just her street work but also special projects and commercial assignments. Tatvik is very selective about which photographs to include in her portfolio. Recently she was stuck trying to decide if three of her recent photos were good enough to make the cut. So she volunteered to join Ashley and me on the evaluation
Tomasz Trzebiatowski has done a masterful job creating the website and magazine FujiLove. In the process, he's built a large and enthusiastic community centered around the well respected Fuji line of cameras. And I'm happy to count myself as a member. Next month Thomas takes his show on the road to New York City. The event is called FujLove Live 2017 and will be held at the Bathouse Studios in the East Village on February 25 and 26.

An important part of that is receiving honest and thoughtful feedback about what you did right and what you can do better. But good feedback can be very hard to find.

Do you often feel stuck in a rut with your photography? After spending a day shooting do you come back at photos look the same as all the others that you've done in the past? Are you looking for a way to improve your photography to find your vision? Often times the answer is using a different part of your brain.

Portland Oregon based writer, Gina Williams, has been on a personal journey to reinvent yourself as a journalist and photographer. That journey has taken her to Europe three times in less than a year, most recently to attend the Siena international Photography Awards in Siena, Italy. I had an opportunity to speak with Gina after she returned from Italy where we talked about her experiences both in Siena and in Paris. She says her biggest take away from that trip is the fact that not only do
