Blog feature: MJF Images
Sorry, I’ve been missing in action for a few weeks. Travel (Agra, Mumbai, Delhi), upcoming travel (Paris, San Sebastian, Sevilla, Granada, Barcelona) and a crashed Macbook ( 😦 ) are responsible. I do have lots of photos to share and a number of posts planned in my head… and I promise to get to those soon (ish)!
But today’s post is about something else. I wanted to feature a blog that I’m a big fan and dedicated follower of – MJF Images – “a photography blog with a difference” by Michael Flaherty.
Micheal is an extremely talented photographer, and his love for nature is clearly visible in his stunning images (a sample of which I have featured here with his permission). But in addition to the photographs, what keeps me going back for more, is the accompanying commentary about nature, geology, science and photography tips – all very engaging, informative and helpful. Check out these links to some of my favourite posts, to see what I’m talking about.
An earth scientist and teacher, Michael started seriously pursuing photography about five years ago, and aims to become a professional photographer and also teach photography along with natural history. However, earlier this year, he faced a setback to his plans, when he lost his only DSLR – a Canon 5D Mark III to a tumble in a waterfall.
Not wanting to see him give up his dream of going pro, a number of his blog followers (including me) encouraged him to start a crowd-funding campaign.
Here’s the link to Micheal’s campaign on Indiegogo.
He’s offering a choice of his photographs for contributors, and those contributing $25 or more, will also receive a copy of his e-book – a comprehensive look at the art of nature photography.
Do take a look at his amazing work, and if you are as impressed as I have been, do contribute and/ or pass on the word!
