  1. Re: Can you guys critique my website/portfolio of my large format photography work?

    Teaching at the college level is an insane grind. Youíll likely end up as an adjunct making 3500 a course without benefits. Itís a single person game because you have to be willing to move at the...

    Good bag for just walking from the car to a shot real close by. That bag will demolish your back if you walk anywhere. Practical for storage, but otherwise a useless bag.
