Redbubble shop users received an email from them today (20-04-23) informing us of changes to both the terms and conditions of having the account, and to introduce some new account level 'tiers'. For a moment reading this, I thought I could see what was coming next. "Hello," I thought, "they'll be charging us a percentage... Continue Reading →
the household’s man with a camera
This is how it goes. "You know how to take photographs... can you take some pictures of my work for me?" This is a new thing for me. I am used to making a shot out of what is in front of me, outdoors, using technique and composition to make the picture, but perhaps in... Continue Reading →
