Sam’s Club 6×8″ Window Photo Book

This came in the other day after a pretty long wait, a Sam’s Club’s 6×8″ Photo Book with a windowed cutout in the cover.  They have two other cover choices but I opted for the the cheapest option at $6.86 just to see the quality.  The first thing you notice is, that’s an awful big […]

Sam’s Club Misc Prints

I’m still waiting for my other prints, but here’s what came in the other day: a mousepad, an 8×10″ puzzle and 50 free prints.  (It seems the drawback for Sam’s Club Free Shipping on all photo print items is that I have to wait a very long time.  7-14 business days is a bit frustrating […]

Sam’s Club (Fujifilm) 8×8″ Lay Flat Photo Book Review

Hello everyone, I got these in the other day, 8×8″ Lay Flat Premium Photo Books from Sam’s Club.  These are essentially smaller more portable versions of the 12×12″ books that I order through Costco.  In fact they are printed at the same Fujifilm plant in SC.  It’s just odd that Costco doesn’t offer this size […]

Sam’s Club 4×6″ Lay Flat Mini Photo Book Review

Hello everyone, these came in yesterday, a new product offered by Sam’s club: 4×6″ Lay Flat Mini Photo Books starting at $6.86!  I designed a few so I could get a feel of the interface and of course see how the print quality is.  Here are some of my initial thoughts. Notes: Very nice sturdy […]

Sam’s Club 6×6″ Calendar Review

Hi there everyone I decided to try some of Sam’s Club’s photo print items.  I’m still using Costco for my big books and other photographic prints, but Sam’s Club actually offers a bunch more items in different sizes and options.  So like most things in life, it’s useless to argue one brand over another, if […]

Costco 11.5×14″ Calendar Review

As y’all know from my past posts, I’m a big fan of the 12×12″ Costco photobooks.  Since I’m sitting at home all day everyday in 2020 thus far, I’ve occupied my time organizing my various visual work (i.e. digital photo hoarding) ;).  I thought it would be nice to make some calendars, just to see […]

Quarantine Design Project: “Fake” Lifestyle Mag!

My “Fake” Lifestyle/Girl Magazine! Again, every photo except one was by me. All editing and layout by me. Again, just practicing some design while under the countrywide quarantine here in the U.S. (I sure do hope all of the restaurants depicted are still around after all this is over)

Quarantine Design Project: “Fake” Fashion Mags!

Another Design Project I gave myself, make some “fake” Fashion Magazines!  Again, all the photos and design by me, shamelessly copying the elegant and simple magazines I thumbed through when I was younger.

Quarantine Design Project: “Fake” Wedding Mag!

I hope everyone is doing okay during the pandemic and quarantine.  I renewed the domain name and hosting for my website the other day, and realized I’ve had it for 17 years now.  Crazy.  In all that time never thought the world would be under these unique circumstances. Anyways, I’ve been giving myself different creative […]

Fujifilm (Costco) Metal Prints Review

Happy New Year everyone!  I know calendar switches don’t magically turn our fortunes or sorrows around, but I do wish the best for everyone out there.  Thanks for following along for 10+ years now!  I would like to thank FujiFilm for supplying me two 16×20″ metal prints for review.  It’s a bit hard to write […]

Custom DSLR Cage

Custom (DIY) aluminum DSLR Cage with mounting holes for a Shure SM58A Beta, Rode NTG-1, and a JuicedLink Preamp. All feeding into a D600. In many ways, definitely not as convenient as a camcorder, but it works for me.

DIY LED Light Panel

My simple 24×24″ lighting panel made by combining an LED ceiling light fixture from China and parts we made.

18 x 24: iPad as a Digital Portfolio

Thoughts on custom tailoring my various tablets for presenting work, and finally putting a stop to traditional printed portfolio binders. On a DIY aluminum stand.
