For a good month now, we have a new face to the website. With that, we also changed our brand name to Sokk & Butlers.

Have a happy 2017!

Obviously GAS kicks in and I Google which cameras/films she is using. And find myself reading the interview on skiptownonline.com. I get the answer to my question - she is fond of her Contax 645, Mamiya 6 and Olympus Trip. But a more important and thought-provoking section was how she describes her most memorable travel experience. ...

[intro]Having seen a bit of the HR and recruiting processes during my time in a software company, there have been a few highlights that ring true in any field of life. You search for people that have the greatest potential. Last week I wrote about uncertainty and how it's not a bad thing. This time I uncover some important traits of a decent vendor, for me as an occasional wedding photog, at least.[/intro] The “I just shoot and I’m off” type [column_wrap] [column_half] Imagine a photographer who has been in the business for, say 10 years. They make great pictures, for sure, otherwise they wouldn’t be in business. But on the wedding day ...
