Students make the semifinals in Adobe comp 

Huge congrats to two of my 222.357 Video students, Luke Hoban and Kyle White, for making the semifinals of the 2016 Adobe Design Achievement Awards.

Their project Focused on raising awareness to the harmful effects within the fashion industry.

An awesome result receiving well earned praise.

Below is the video they made. You can read the full story on the The Adobe competition website.

Man cave of the year


Well actually (as far as I know) there isn’t an award for “Best Man-Cave” but the photo I took of the classic Ingmar Relling ‘Siesta’ chair in my garage was a finalist in the D-Photo Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition 2013 (in the top 10 of over 2600 entries) and came second in the “Creative” section. Choice!

One of the judges Andrew Hales said: “I love how the scene has been crafted, the use of light and level of post production. I actually wanted this one to win.”

In case you’re wondering “amateur” is defined by photography not being my primary income … Yay for the “day job”
