Other World Computing (OWC) recently asked me if I’d like to write a guest post on their blog. OWC make SSDs and memory for Macs, as well as RAID solutions and various USB and Thunderbolt docks. I’m an OWC customer myself (check out my recent OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dock review), and have been for over a decade, so I took them up on the offer to reach their audience with some of my own experience as a creative professional. The topic I chose: Continuity Backups. If you don’t know what this phrase means, I think you need to read
I had a great time on the CBC Airplay show talking about photography with Mark Kelly, Alistair Maitland and Dave White. You can find it in all the usual podcast directories by searching for my name and “Airplay” or head here for iTunes and here for Google. You can also play it directly from the CBC website by clicking this link.
This year I had the great pleasure of working with Whistler Blackcomb on a short film project as one of the subjects their Choose to Be film series. This series of six videos explores the lives of people that in the Whistler valley, and the choices they made that defined their lives. My journey from Aerospace Engineer in England to outdoor, adventure and wildlife photographer in Canada, is an interesting one, and I’m so pleased to be able to share some of that in such an interesting and visually stunning way. Huge thanks to my good friend Jeff Thomas for
I’ve always been a huge fan of Really Right Stuff support gear so I was thrilled to be asked to contribute to the latest issue of their magazine. If you’re a previous customer than you probably already had a print copy of this land on your doorstep at some point, and if not, you can download a copy for free on this page. Hope you enjoy the insights! PS. Over on Shutter Muse last month, I wrote one of the longest gear comparisons that I’ve ever tackled. I compared every single Really Right Stuff ballhead, levelling head and gimbal! Check
By now you guys know that I often work closely with B&H Photo to borrow gear for testing purposes, and sometimes to bring you great deals on all kinds of camera equipment. I have a pretty international audience on this site and what I like about B&H is how easy they make international ordering. Here in Canada, shipping is free for orders over $100, and they let me pay the tax and duties during the ordering process so I know what my final total is going to be. I can’t speak for the process in all other countries, but I
I’m a little bit late posting this piece of news, but I’m very pleased to tell you guys about it none the less. I’m a long time user of Drobos for storing my photo archives, and this summer they ran an adventure photography contest which seemed right up my alley! I’m happy to say that the image I entered took home the top prize. I can’t quite remember the submission criteria off the top of my head, but roughly speaking it said something along the lines of “show us a photo that embodies your enjoyment of adventure”. A self portrait
I’m pleased to say that once again, my little blog has been listed in the top 100 photography blog list over at Feedspot. It humbles me to see it listed there amongst so many people who I respect so much, and draw so much inspiration from. Thanks to everyone that continues to read my ramblings, and make sure you also check out my other website, Shutter Muse, for long-form reviews and photo tutorials.
I recently did an Instagram Takeover on the MindShift Gear Instagram page and I thought I’d share the images and descriptions here with you guys as well. My simple aim for the series of images was to show a small variety of my work, and also talk about which MindShift Gear products helped me in those specific instances. Over the past few years, several of MindShift’s carrying solutions have become an integral part of my work. Day 1 Hey folks! My name is @dancarrphoto and I’m a professional adventure, landscape and wildlife photographer from Whistler in British Columbia. As
Throughout my career, I’ve always put a lot of time and effort into maintaining an active blog full of useful information and stories about my work. Time and time again, this has paid dividends in ways I could never imagine when I first started it nearly ten years ago. Recently I learned that my this blog has been featured in the #66 spot in the Feedspot Top 100 Photography Blogs On the Planet. Not bad considering I’m just one man with a camera and a desire to share some fun and knowledge. Of course the other sites in the list,
Not too long ago, my website was featured by the makers of my favourite WordPress themes, Elegant Themes, as one of the top 25 sites using the Divi framework. For those that don’t know, WordPress is a powerful website platform that’s free to use, but it requires a “Theme” to be used to take care of the look of the site. That’s why not all WordPress sites look the same. I use a theme from Elegant Themes called Extra, and it’s built on their incredible Divi framework that allows massive amounts of customizations to be carried out by regular Joes like
