Joshua - Hey buddy! I have been trying to get similar images as to what is on your blog. Is there anyway that you can tell me what you use for post? Do you use presets or actions and if so what ones do you like? This would help me out so much man thank you! Great work!

edie - Can I ask what do you do to make the photo to be in these gloomy (and wonderful) color?
Any special filter in the post process?

Tetyana - Hi, amazing job, can not stop looking at your pictures! I wish I could learn one day, it’s the big science! I don’t know even where to start. Thank you for sharing!

ken kienow - i was hoping for your fixed gearing.

Anna - all my favourite photographers use Canon gear. I wondered if you were Nikon user would it be possible to get similar post process?? i know Otto Schulze use Nikon so maybe it is possible..

Nicky Walsh - Hi…new to blogging and stumbled over your site a few months ago. Its a great stop for me when looking for inspiration for my projects..thanks x

Mark - Thanks for sharing this! I know it’s usually not “cool” to be like oh hey what gear do you use! But it’s still fun stuff to know. I like your work a lot! I’m surprised to see the flashes on this list because I don’t recall seeing anything strobed in your portfolio…that, or you are the MAN and can make hand strobes look like beautiful west coast light.

Keep up the good work man! You are a real inspiration to me.
