Don’t Take Pictures is a photography magazine published in print twice-yearly (March, September), in addition to regular online articles. The title, Don’t Take Pictures, references the language of modern photography. Over the years, the term “taking pictures” has begun to be replaced with “making photographs.” The change signifies a distinction between the widespread use of cameras in the modern world and the more systematic, thoughtful process of creating photographic art. At Don’t Take Pictures, they strive to celebrate the creativity involved with the making of photographs.  



Launch of “Print & Plant” Project

This month I launched “Print & Plant,” my new project to combat climate change. Planting trees is something we can do NOW to offset the effects of our carbon footprint and mitigate global warming. With the purchase of any of my tree prints, I will make a donation to the National Forest Foundation’s “50 Million for our Forests” tree planting campaign.
