Check out the FotoFolios…

I’m sure my botty’s gonna get a canin’ from a client demanding their work sooner or later, but I couldn’t resist using all my new iMac can provide and have spent some time populating the FotoFolio areas of this Blog site.¬†Have also discovered some other great online resources for those of you also tired of the daily grind and constant demands:-

www.openfilm.com is a fabulous portal to the world of independent cinema – beaucoup shorts and clips to view, but be warned: once you start surfing you won’t be able to stop so make sure your monitor is pointed well away from the BossMan/BossGirl! (delete as applicable!)…

www.blurb.com is an absolute must for those interested in self-publishing via Print-On-Demand – check it out; a great website & resource for all of us who know we’ve got at least one good book in us…

www.magcloud.com is another great site discovered in the past week where anyone can self-publish their own magazine title. Costs seem highly competitive and some of the work I came across (particularly in the Art + Photography sections) was –¬†awesome!…

Finally for this entry, much kudos to the work and endeavours of two highly talented individuals who’s work I saw on Blurb and MagCloud:-

Clay Lipsky is a designer/director/photographer I discovered through MagCloud; Clay’s landscapes in ‘Between Here & Nowhere‘ confined me to non-work activity for far longer than is healthy in the current economic climate!…

John Moore is another who’s work I came across via Blurb; his stunning collection of images in the book ‘Spirit‘, memories from a journey he undertook along the 211-mile John Muir trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains back in 2008/09 to raise awareness & funds for the Yorkhill Children’s Foundation, Glasgow and Access Adventure, Fairfield, California, evoked memories of the first time I lay eyes on the work of Ansel Adams as a young pup in Art College…

For any of you out there in search of inspiration on a regular basis, you should also add www.behance.net to your weekly intake – a veritable cornucopia of all that’s good, varied, ground breaking and inspiring to the creative mind…

Great work, great inspiration, great life – more soon!
