There’s a camera in every pocket. Know how to use it.

Photography is for everyone. In the digital age, there’s also a camera in everyone’s pocket. Empowering communities to wield digital media to their benefit demands more than accessibility, though. Effectively using these tools requires good information.’s goal is providing digestible content that enables any skill level to easily learn photography, video production, writing, image processing, research, reporting, illustration and other digital media.

Producing quality takes time, skill and money to sustain though. Traditional ad revenue models discourage thoughtful articles that serve communities.

If you’ve any of these things to spare, we would greatly appreciate your support.
