Where Children Sleep Where Children Sleep- stories of diverse children around the world, told through portraits and pictures of their bedrooms. When Fabrica asked me to come up with an idea for engaging with children's rights, I found myself thinking about my bedroom: how significant it was during my childhood, and how it reflected what I had and who I was. It occurred to me that a way to address some of the complex situations and social issues affecting children would be to look at the bedrooms of children in all kinds of different circumstances. From the start, I didn't want it just to be about 'needy children' in the developing world, but rather something more inclusive, about children from all types of situations.

Hi! Meet Mr. IRRISISTBLE , whom I had the pleasure of photographing recently.
Here’s a little quickie that many people don’t think about. If you like to use your current brush and erase with it, it’s annoying to have to switch to the eraser and then pick the same brush from the brushes palette, or create duplicate of all your brushes set to erase. Just switch your brush blending mode to “Clear” and voila, now you’r erasing with your current brush. A quick shortcut to change brush blending mode to clear is control+shift+r and then control+shift+n to go back to normal mode. You can also flip through the blending modes with control+shift and then use plus and minus keys to scroll through the modes.

Occasionally, you wonder how things go viral, how a particular site or piece of content starts to steamroll and gain popularity. Well, this morning, I think I saw the process firsthand. A little while ago, someone mentioned the site 500px .
Recently I had the pleasure of photographing a man called Tim Andrews. Since retiring from his job as a lawyer because of Parkinson’s disease, Tim has been photographed by over 100 different photographers, from photography degree students, to ‘established’ artists including Rankin, Harry Borden, Mike McCartney and Jillian Edelstein, who have all interpreted his character and story in different ways. In Tim’s own words: “I was born in London years ago and, in 2005, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I was a solicitor for 29 years but had to retire in June 2006 and since then I have had the freedom to indulge my many interests which include watching cricket, going to the cinema, writing and taking photographs. I am also collaborating with a number of different photographers on an artistic venture, which examines my life at this time, and I am shortly arranging an exhibition of the photographs which have arisen from the project.
The contents of Taylor’s bag plus Leroy cat Have you ever seen another photographer on an assignment and wondered what kind of heat they were packing? You haven’t? Well, too bad, because they want to tell you about it anyway. Photojournalists love selfies, and they love talking about their gear, so it only makes sense that they would be all about making “In My Bag” blog posts, which is pretty much a selfie of your junk. What’s in your bag?
Imagine an exposure computer so advanced that it uses your eyes as a sensor. The processing unit is as powerful as your brain. The computer is accurate over a light range from reflected starlight through the light produced in a hydrogen fusion reaction. This computer weighs nothing and operates without batteries.
I’ve seriously been SO excited to show you these! You’re about to fall in love with this couple, I guarantee it. Heeeere youuuuuu gooooo… bbmk workshop #10!
Rocking the pre-shoot with Fiona and Kev! | Photography by Al Borrelli, Portrait, Family, Wedding, Fashion, and Lifestlye photographerIt’s that time of the year again. Weddings. And I start to worry about how do I do wedding/engagement related imagery that isn’t like all the rest. That’s somehow different. I’m photographing Fiona and Kevin’s wedding this year and wanted to do a pre-shoot to get to know them, and for them to get comfortable with me and my style/ability. It was (for once!)
