all the best & things to watch during the holidays

This will be my last post of 2011. As I said yesterday I’m taking a break for the holidays, spending time with the family and recharging the batteries for what’s ahead.

It’s been quite a year and I’d like to thank all of you for the amazing support and feedback you’ve given me through this blog by following my travels, tips and… well, sometimes rants.

Before I go I thought I’d leave you with some things to watch or read, in case you get bored with — you know — all the partying ;)

all about portfolios

90 minutes of porfolio advise from Allegra Wilde on Chase Jarvis LIVE. Must-see.


Everybody street

A series of interviews with street photographers from the documentary project of the same name

The Sartorialist in Tokyo

A short video that follows Scott Schuman as he shoots in the streets of Tokyo. Nice to see how he approaches his subjects.


Easy Ways to Exceed Client Expectations

Ideas to help your photography business.


Joel Meyerowitz 1981 Street Photography

An hour-long documentary on the street photographer.

The Long Exposure of Francesca Woodman

An article in the New York Review of Books from Elizabeth Gumport. Tragically beautiful photography.

Steve Jobs

This loss hit home for a lot of us. It certainly did for me. Here’s a video that was dug up by the Computer History Museum that shows just how ingrained his vision was. It’s also quite nice to see Jobs so young and healthy…

And of course, I couldn’t leave without a few pics from the little camera that changed so many things for me this year — the X100. Against all odds and weather forecasts we had a nice surprise this morning: snow. And this time — THIS time — nothing threatens to melt it away. Fingers crossed, we’re getting a white Christmas after all. Had to take a few shots before breakfast.

I wish you all the very best of holidays, much laughter, joy and warmth.
Hope to see you in the new year.
