I'm a film photographer based in NYC and I finally bit the bullet, scanned a load of negatives, bought a URL + hosting, and put up a website. Mostly black and white (some color), mostly medium format (some 4x5 large format or 35mm), in a couple different genres. There's some moody street work, a fun hot sauce expo, NYC Pride 2016, and much more for your delectation. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
With Clarifai, an image concept extraction API utilizing convolutional neural networks, and ConceptNet, a lexical relationship database, I built a template system to generate paragraphs of text from photographs. word.camera is responsive — it works on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. The code behind it is open source and available on GitHub, because lexography is for everyone. [more inside]
My creative agency is looking to build a photo library of certain words printed out or otherwise manifested in the real world. So we're offering a cash bounty for photos of said words if they get posted on our FaceBook. I came up with the campaign, I hope it does well. I think it's a pretty cool way to crowd source this task. More details through the link. If it falls flat we'll probably send an intern around the city with a camera, but we're hoping this works. It would be much cooler. Let me know what you guys think!
After 5 years of digital photography as a hobby, I realized I'd spent a lot of time buying and selling gear online. Hopefully this will be helpful to others who find themselves in the same predicament.
