Many people argue that video game photography can never be equally valid as real-life photography.

When Words Whisper Lies, We Write

It was the last period of the day, and I spent it mouthing the words of Mozart’s Requiem in D minor and staring out of the window while my chorus class sang, “Lacrimosa dies illa, Qua resurget ex favilla.” I couldn’t stop the tears from filling up my eyes. Those were the days when silence had become my song. I was sick, my rheumatologist told me, with an autoimmune disease triggered by my body attacking its own beloved self. Rheumatic fever, he called it — a rare complication of arthritis that c...

At a turning point? Here’s my three cornerstones for success

If you turn back the clock a couple decades, you’ll find me in the following situation: I’m sitting at my parents’ kitchen table, explaining to them that I’ve decided to drop out of med school and a PhD in philosophy to become a professional photographer. In addition to being a tough conversation, this was perhaps the biggest turning point in my career (and life).

A good story to tell

“I just can’t,” said Allie. “There’s no way I have the skills to do it. Why frustrate myself trying?” Her determined expression seconded her defeatist words. If you replaced Allie’s name with yours, could you hear yourself saying the same thing? If you can, please read on! Can’t is a wickedly powerful word. It’s a limiting and telling word. Using can’t —and believing it—speaks volumes about our confidence, resilience, and the stories we tell ourselves. If we have confidence in ours...

Giant crab steals a $4,000 thermal camera and hides it from researcher
