I’m pleased to present my first manifesto for minimal photography, A Lesser Photographer: 10 Principles for Rediscovering What Matters.

Photographers are being bombarded by content that has only further removed them from their creativity (and money). They’re aching for something to cut through the nonsense and remind them of why they fell in love with photography in the first place.

This is my manifesto; universal truths I’ve learned since selling off my fancy cameras and challenging myself to maximize my creativity by minimizing everything else.

If you find yourself nodding in agreement with these principles, I’m relying on you to pass the manifesto along to everyone you know who loves photography!

Update: The manifesto is now a book: A Lesser Photographer.
