An old and dear friend of mine who’s helped me a great deal in recent years with my personal photography.
Adam Marelli will be in Bangkok, Thailand this coming January 25-27, 2013 for a 3-day photography workshop. For those not familiar with his work, please check out his website below. I’ve known Adam since our days at NYU some 10+ years ago, so it’s great to reconnect with him here in Asia. Not to be missed!

Was interviewed recently about my involvement with film photography and workshops taking place in Bangkok, Thailand. When asked why I shoot with film my answer was/is, ‘because it’s fun’. I believe each occasion calls for the right tool depending on what I want, therefore digital and film coexist for me. I went on to explain that film helped slow things down and most importantly to be present in the act of taking a photo. In the end, I believe my photos have improved.
I like instagram for the same reason. I treat it as my digital lomo-camera since it’s somewhat a crappy-fixed-lens. The filters makes things a little less mundane and I’ll admit I shoot with the filter already in mind. I am a fan of ‘early bird’.
