Organising a mobile life

Monday, June 29th, 2009

As a photographer I need to be very organised. ¬†I have to manage my shoots, maintain contact with my clients and other individuals, keep up to date with my paperwork, etc. ¬†However, generally speaking, and as my wife will attest, I’m not the most organised person. It’s not through a lack of desire to be more organised, it’s just that I’ve always lacked that tools that work for me personally.

All this has now changed. For the past few months I’ve been exceptionally well organised thanks to many services and technologies that have come to fruition, and these services are improving all the time. I hope that others my benefit from my tenacity in making this all work for me…


New Lightroom book by Nathaniel Coalson

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Nathaniel Coalson was kind enough to send me a copy of his new Lightroom book, “Lightroom 2 – Streamlining your digital photography process” in order to thank me for my contribution to the Lightroom community. Thanks Nathaniel!

Having had a good look at his book, I felt that I just had to blog about it. This really is a great Lightroom book; not only is it comphensive, it’s extremely clear and easy to read. Nathaniel has obviously thought long and hard about his presentation, and the result is simply excellent – the best I’ve seen. And the final cheery on the cake is that Nathaniel has separated the chapters with some wonderful colour images to inspire you to get out there and shoot…

I’d highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn more about Lightroom. And no, I’m not just saying that because he gave me a free copy!
