Aaron Chang VS. Quinn Matthews

“Legendary photographer Aaron Chang might appreciate Quinn’s work if he could only remember who the hell Quinn is! Apparently at the Follow the Light award’s ceremony last night Aaron stepped to the stage as the head judges and talked about the finalists but when he came to Quinn hemmed and hawed before squirting, “Don’t know who Quinn Matthews is…” – BeachGrit

Don’t worry about it Quinn nobody under 40 knows who Aaron Chang is nor does anyone know that he went bankrupt years ago – the egotistical photographer loves to talk about himself but never seems to share any truth!

“We Keep Your Negatives” – Walgreens

By Jack English (film photographer)

I was at my bank the other day and there is a Walgreens next door. So being curious on how much they charge for film processing I went inside and spoke to the lady standing in the photo processing section. The lady had told me it’s around $13 a roll and what I get back are the prints and a cd. I then asked what about the negatives she replied “we keep the negatives”. I thought she was joking, but she wasn’t. I asked if she had anything in writing that also said this – she didn’t.

So later that day I emailed my story to Petapixel (they have a section on there website where you can send any tips or story ideas). Petapixel is a photo website I go to everyday that posts camera news and photo information on everything regarding photography and video.

All I asked in return was that if they did do something on this to please give me a link back to my site (jackenglish.com). Their reply “it looks like you’re right. we’ll probably share this with our readers today. thanks!”

Story can be read at Film Processing Services No Longer Return Your Film

Izzy Paskowitz Photos – Surfers Healing Malibu

We have just uploaded photos of Izzy Paskowitz from his surf camp Surfers Healing in Malibu

Israel and Danielle Paskowitz founded Surfers Healing because of their son, Isaiah. Isaiah has autism, and when he struggled with meltdowns and sensory overload, riding the waves with his father calmed him like nothing else.
