  • Photography Gear vs. The Wild

    Our latest TCSTV episode was inspired in just such a way. If we were lost in the woods, could we start a fire using only the glass elements in our lenses? From here, Jordan and I quickly expanded the idea to the following: If stuck in a survival situation, how well could we manage using only the camera gear and photo accessories found in the average photographer’ s backpack? Inspired by equal parts Survivorman and MacGyver, we soon had our most challenging, and most enjoyable idea to date.

  • German Beer and The Panasonic G85

    I’m sitting at a table, a now empty steiner of German beer is in front of me, surrounded by local photographers, and fellow YouTube channel hosts, and upon the Rhine a barge full of locals partying to loud music floats by. This is Cologne. Jordan Drake and I find ourselves in this stunning city to take in all that is Photokina. The largest photo tradeshow in the world is in full swing, and the atmosphere couldn’t be more enjoyable.

  • Photographer Feature: Tyler Forest-Hauser

    Tyler Forest-Hauser has always been a creative person, jumping between composing music, filmmaking and video editing in his early 20s. While I never saw him with a still camera during that period, I could see how important strong composition was to him in the early short films he directed. He had a photographer’s eye, but a photo camera was never on his radar.

  • Book Review: The Blind Photographer

    I am so proud that I was able to get behind this book long before I ever saw it. The Camera Store sells books, which is a bit of a marketing challenge, given our name, as you might imagine… When I order books, I read descriptions, and I become acquainted with presses, authors, editors, track records, details, but sometimes what finally comes to the shop is a little less, and sometimes, hopefully, a lot more than I expected. I’ve become familiar with the designer of The Blind Photographer, and Julian Rothenstein’s Redstone Press. I love the vibrant colour of his De-Stijl-y designs, and I have been in love with books, and page design all of my adult life, from David Carson’s wonky illegible type frenzy and Raygun magazine, to the eminent rationality of the statistician Edward Tufte’s work. I love books and magazines that play with form. This book is a little more restrained, but look at the multi-coloured braided headband, this small flourish, this detail calls out, it announces a personal love of the gift of sight, and so touchingly.
