New on our website: Bike Shelter! 🚲
Check it out! Link in bio :)
Bike Shelter is a nomadic device designed for the new urban landscape explorers. It is a trailer, a table for an urban picnic, a bench, a bed for sunbathing, a platform for yoga, a small pet house, a stage for urban musicians, a tent for children and as many things as we can imagine.

My ladies photography workshop was one for the record books. We had a bit of everything. It started off very cold, but ended with temperatures on the plus side. Every single day we managed to chase the best light, and find beautiful compositions. We even managed a really beautiful night shoot. We hiked with wolves, shared stories and laughs. Four of us caught the flu, and a chest cold and shared cough syrup and Sudafed. You would think that having an entire group get sick would ruin a workshop but somehow it didn’t. Getting ill made it more difficult, to be sure; I was so tired by the end that I slept for two days straight after I dropped the girls off at the airport. But somehow the challenges just brought us closer together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was recently on the @artofvisuals podcast with @wonderboyprince He asked me why I offer workshops just for women. I know I gave a short list of reasons but I really struggled to articulate why working with women means so much to me. And it’s nearly impossible to describe in the space I have here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know so many women who have lost their own identities while raising children because the give every last ounce of themselves to parenting. So many women are afraid to go out and shoot by themselves, especially at night because we have been told our whole lives that we are not safe. I want to empower women to create something for themselves, and to get out and explore this beautiful world. I want to help women connect and build community. But it’s not just for other women. The truth is I need these things too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The women I worked with on this ladies retreat embodied every reason I could imagine for running a ladies workshop; I learned so much from them about determination, grit, love, and patience. Thank you @shelbydiamondstar @vikki_macleod @laurelperkinsphoto @farhat.m for looking out for me when I was sick, for the memories, the laughs, and for trusting me with your dreams and goals. I feel like I gained four sisters. I’m so grateful to have shared that time with you. ♥️ I also want to thank @SonyAlpha @BHPhoto and @SlikUSA for supporting this workshop.

FILM CAMERA FORMATS⠀
Several times I’ve been asked a question about what format should one go for if one is used to a full-frame digital camera. Two things to consider: 1. resolution and 2. workflow. ⠀
• 35mm will resolve something like 15MP. ⠀
• 120 (medium format) resolves around 50MP in sharp B&W emulsion, but count more like 30MP in general. ⠀
• 4x5 is where one really steps up to 150MP. ⠀
• 8x10 I can scan in up to 1GP! But you can be certain to get at least an outstanding sharp 500-800MP. (Other factors that affect resolution: film stock, lens and just the usual aperture, shutterspeed and iso). • Workflow. 35mm and 120 cameras are very similar to any digital cameras today. The only real difference is the film instead of digital censor.⠀
However all large format cameras have a very different workflow to the digital and other film cameras. They are slower, much slower, the way you work with the film, the camera and the subjects is different. ⠀
I think medium format is the easiest and the best format to start with when you still want your sharpness and resolution.⠀
I have personally started with a 4x5 camera (the idea of a totally novel way of photography for me was intriguing). Speaking of which I’ve just packed my 4x5 presscamera to go with me the farthest it’s ever been! 🐧 ⠀
What format have you started with? Have you stayed with it or changed to another?
𝗘𝗱𝗶𝘁: why do I even mention MP when it comes to film?! The simple answer is that it is what people who shoot digital or have a hybrid workflow and do commercial work, sell prints etc want to know. I could say lines per mm, but what useful information would that be to a digital photographer? If you print, especially large, you’ve got to know the resolution you can deliever, how you measure it is up to you. .

The Davidson Center Expansion is under construction
At the end of January, we celebrated the topping out of our “Flexible Office Building FOB” on the Roche Pharma Campus in Grenzach, near the Swiss-German border. Set to open in 2021, the FOB will serve as the first reception space for guests visiting the campus and will offer different ways of working together and meeting each other. The image shows the double-height auditorium currently under construction, which will be accommodating almost 600 people.
