The power of two and how you can use collaboration to help improve your creativity and photography. Some examples include: put words to your images; find a partner to attend or plan an event; do a project with someone else. Read about my collaborations and get your own ideas and share them with me in the comments section.

Boost your creativity - undertaking a photography project is a great way to do this, so I’ll be talking to several photographers (some pro, some amateur) about their projects to help light a fire under your butt to get going on one yourself. The first in the series featured Darcy Evans with his Doll Collection project. This week I’d like to introduce Matt Leitholt.

New series featuring projects by upcoming and aspiring photographers and readers. This week how personal projects can help you boost creativity and increase your passion for photography.

Every year the Bissell center of Edmonton serves a New Years meal to the inner city homeless and low income persons. I have participated in the days events for over 20 years and this year I was asked to photograph it. I hope that my images of the event will help others understand what they provide and how they help the people who need it the most.
