I No Longer Want to Buy Things – And That’s Incredibly Liberating

Hong Kong by night

A few months ago I was strolling through a fancy shopping area in Hong Kong, when a realisation hit me: I don’t want to buy anything at all!

Photografree Inc. – Why I’m Giving My Art Away to Anyone (and Where You Can Find It)

I’ve been running around with a camera since I was 15. Thousands of hours, and hundreds of thousands of photographs later, I’ve developed (pun intended) quite a knack for it.

There, my art resides on life support, hidden away from anyone’s eyes to see. How sad. Here I explain why I now have decided give away all my photographs for free – and show your where you can go to download my artwork!

How I Taught Myself Basic Graphic Design, And Conneced With Influencers In The Process

I’ve always enjoyed visual expressions of creativity. But until recently, photography has monopolised my creative outputs, effectively blocking other creative pursuits from entering the picture (no pun intended). That’s no longer the case. As part of my Year of Learning project, I spent February trying to teach myself the very basics of graphic design. By the time February was over, I … Read More
