Photography can be an intimate experience. Factors such as having chemistry with your photographers, ease of communication to have changes made, and professionalism are usually unclear in your typical Gumtree advertisement. So that’s exactly what this site addresses.

Features of this wonderful site include:

  • Browsing by geography;
  • Access to reviews and ratings of selected photographers;
  • Highly visual interface that allows you to have a ‘feel’ for the photographer’s style – and shortlist/dismiss accordingly;
  • Ability to ‘heart’ in order to save particular portfolios to revisit later;
  • Very sleek and professional user interface

This is the website I’ll be using for finding a professional picture for my LinkedIn profile. So far, I’ve tried using a lamp, a white wall, and a selfie stick. Maybe it’s time to try something else. ūüėČ

birth | 100 Emotions (a sketching challenge)

I am enthralled to discover this almost-exhaustive list of inspiring, complex, multilayered words over at cherrytato¬†(an amazing blog, btw). And while the original prompt is to respond with the written word, I’ve decided to switch to sketching instead to expand my creative horizons.

If you are interested, feel free to choose whatever form of medium you wish (writing, sketching, painting, etc.) to undertake this challenge. ‚̧

For today, this is birth.
