Above: Images by Christian Chaize via https://www.jacksonfineart.com Christian Chaize is a French artist born in 1960. Chaize has enjoyed a successful career as a commercial photographer for three decades. In 2004, Christian Chaize began focusing his artistic attention on a small stretch of coastline in Portugal. Since then, using medium and large format film cameras, his commitment to documenting one specific beach from a consistent vantage point – that is, taking its ‘portrait’ at various times of the day over a variety of seasons over several years – has culminated in his most renowned series, Praia Piquinia.

Valuable photography lessons from a basic point-and-shoot camera and Leonardo da Vinci

Above: Bali fisherman Fuji x100f image by Gina Milicia I can’t believe 2018 is almost over! It’s been a huge year, and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the two most valuable lessons I have learned. Those of you who regularly read my newsletter, follow me on Instagram or listen to my podcast will be aware of the frustration, dummy spits and challenges I have encountered making the switch from DSLR to mirrorless. To be clear, I still shoot with DSLR for my commercial shoots because I believe mirrorless isn’t quite there yet as a pro commercial camera. It’s close, but I’m not ready to make the switch – yet. I did, however, make the switch to mirrorless for all my personal projects and after a few frustrating months, I’m over the moon with the results. I love my Fujix100F more than Nutella! There I said it....

Imagine a world without art

“When you buy something from an artist you are buying more than an object. You’re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You’re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul… a piece of someone else’s life.” –Rebekah Joy Plett Above: Image by Gina Milicia
