In fact, they’re bringing back an old – but classic – technology to help them get around the Freedom from Unwanted Surveillance Act, passed in 2015. FStoppers descri...

Week 6: From Big Bend National Park to Tucson, Arizona

I felt a tinge of sadness leaving the Big Bend region of Texas. It’s not just the good times I’m leaving behind, but that deep connection to isolated wilderness and myself.

My breath is worth something. What do I want tit to represent and why? In the wilderness, you realize silence has a sound. In a nor...

5 Easy To Achieve New Year’s Goals For Photographers

I’m not fond of New Year’s resolutions. I don’t bother making them and I’m not sure why anyone else does; there’s so much baggage and pressure tied up in the process of making and attempting to keep a resolution. It’s great to have goals, though. I suppose talking about the difference between goals and resolutions requires a tiny bit semantic wiggle room, but I believe the perceived weight of a word can sometimes have a significant impact on our actions. So forget about resolutions. Do you ...

They want to be able to browse and buy anywhere, anytime, and on any device. On a...
