Fresh New Review of SmugMug

Two of My Favorite Things About SmugMug

Beauty and Flexibility! Oh, and speed. That’s three, I suppose. But, after testing a ton of different photography sites, speed is a very important factor. Really, I am amazed at how fast my portfolio site is. I can upload my full high-res images with no size limit (key factor for me) and then they do some black magic to scale the images for all devices, from 5K monitors to mobile devices. It doesn’t seem to matter how quickly you scroll down to see more, they’re always there in glorious HD format and delivered as fast as your internet connection will allow. Watch this quick video for a sneak preview and then pop over to read my fresh new SmugMug review.

Unlock the power of Aurora HDR at KelbyOne

I’m excited to announce a new tutorial for Aurora HDR 2018, launching today! Immediately following Burning Man I flew down to the KelbyOne offices in Florida to record the videos. Then just as we were finishing things up we had to evacuate their offices due to an incoming hurricane! Regardless, the KelbyOne team were super professional and the tutorial turned out great! It’s exclusively on KelbyOne so you have to be a subscriber to view it. If you’re already a KelbyOne member you know they have hundreds of other high-quality photography tutorials and inspirational content on there.
