On the 21 June, I'm teaching a photography class at a breast feeding support group at Falmouth Hospital (a wonderful group by the way: it meets on Thursday mornings). It will be a short and simple class on how to take cute photos of your baby. While not everyone can take great photos, I think everyone can take good photos with a few simple techniques.
I thought I would write this entry as a way of getting organized but instead decided to write about what photography means in my life. (I'll write the easy photo tips for new moms on another day.)
I started taking photos in 2007, while in my former incarnation as Senior VP of Global Robber Baron, Inc. I was working 80 to a 100 hours a week, living in hotels, and planes, and life seemed grey. Nothing inspired me except work.

I was once told that we experience life in video, but we remember in photographs (think about this, think of an iconic event in your life or in history. It will invariably be an image). A camera forces you to focus on life, rather letting it drift.
