Integrating Photoshelter and WordPress — a quick guide

Integrating Photoshelter and WordPress — a quick guide Integrating Photoshelter and WordPress — a quick guide As a photographer and web designer, I’ve built my own photo sites and ones for other photographers, and I’ve always been frustrated, until I just combined Photoshelter with WordPress. The problem is that photographers’ sites often need to combine both excellent photo […]

Why I Pay for Content, and you should too

The idea that ‘information wants to be free’ is the driving force behind so much content delivery on the Internet. It sounds good, right — progressive and egalitarian? But it’s a tenet that’s bankrupting newspapers, impoverishing photographers and redrawing the media map. And if we don’t start paying for online content soon, we’ll all be the poorer. […] closed for business

Tuesday, August 28, 2007 The personal blog here at is now suspended indefinitely. I just had too many websites and not enough time, especially as my photography is taking up the bulk of the limited free time I get. That said, the site will remain up with the blog archived, and also as a […]

Going Digital

Friday, March 16, 2007 Back in September, I wrote about how the explosion in digital photography had created some bargains for film SLRs. I benefited from this myself, when my mother in law upgraded to a new Canon digital SLR, and gave me her old film camera. This, together with the natural desire to take […]

Making a vow

Monday, January 08, 2007 OK, so it’s a resolution, but that’s just so, January, you know? I’m going to ride the Santa Fe Century this year. The last couple of years I’ve sort of been meaning to do it, and then sort of meant to just do the 50, and then sort of didn’t do […]

Getting dumped on

Saturday, December 30, 2006 So what did you do between Christmas and New Year? I stayed in and got stir crazy because we got 2 feet of snow in 36 hours. The interstates were closed, which I always enjoy, because it seems so unlikely. Coming from Europe, the worst we get it is a couple […]

‘Studio 60’ – Smarter than your average show

Tuesday, October 24, 2006 Aaron Sorkin’s new NBC show ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip’ is hitting its stride, and showing there’s mercifully some room for intelligent primetime TV. Amid the smart-talking and wisecracks, there are some heavyweight references. In recent weeks the show’s namechecked Pericles and Strindberg, and this week there was a sensitively-handled […]

Another year, another disappointing England performance

Monday, July 03, 2006 I checked the blog entry I wrote after the European Championship a couple of years ago, and damn it’s happened again: It seems my adult life has been punctuated by the England football team losing on penalties in important competitions. We think it suits us, that we’re dogged and sturdy, but […]

Ride ‘em Cowboy

Saturday, July 01, 2006 So the last post was about a jazz concert by an Englishman. This time it’s something more local – the Rodeo de Santa Fe. Since Marci’s architectural education took place at a university with a big ag school component, and I lived 18 months in Kansas, it shouldn’t really have take […]

Jamie Cullum in Santa Fe

Tuesday, May 30, 2006 (started this ages ago, and just found it in the blog’s back-end, which has a better memory than me, being open-source and not sleep-deprived). Like many new parents, we don’t get out much (but the fortnightly babysitter-enabled date nights are definitely promising), but when we saw that ridiculously talented floppy-haired young […]
