‘Keep The Focus’ – Meditation Techniques for Street Photographers – Free eBook


Many of us either try or do use meditation in our daily routines to aid our well being. Bringing brain and body together, in harmony, can help us deal with many things that we face each day. I need to practice it more, I know that many in our mobile photography community are huge advocates of it, not least our dear friend Carolyn Hall Young, who I know has practised it since she was 16 years old and it has helped her cope with so much. So, with that in mind, I was very interested to learn of this new free eBook ‘Keep the Focus’, which is a practical guide to help improve your street photography with three meditation techniques.

This project was initiated by German Street Photographer Thomas Ludwig and he has been practising meditation since 1999 and has been studying Buddhism since 2010 at the Tibetan Centre in Hamburg, Germany under patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. An array of outstanding street photographers have contributed to this project and include Mike Boening, Valerie Jardin, Eric Kim, Marco Larousse, Thomas Leuthard, Rinzi Roco Ruiz, Spyros Papaspyropoulos and Forrest Walker.

This free ebook is available in English and German.

The Homeless CEO – BBC World Service – TheAppWhisperer


I’m delighted to publish this article on behalf of my friends at the BBC World Service about an incredible mobile photographer called Cillin aka @homelessceo.  He visited London a few weeks ago and together they made a 2’00 montage of his voice and his images and have just put this out on the BBC World Service YouTube channel (see below).

Born 30-something years ago in the UK to an Irish mother and a Sri Lankan father, Cillín (pronounced Killeen) is an Australian entrepreneur and Harvard University dropout who spent ten years in Europe (Germany & Switzerland) before moving to his current place of residence in the UAE.

Cillín currently splits his time between a number of bases, including Australia, Hungary, Italy, Sri Lanka, Switzerland and the UAE – which is easier than may seem with 4 nationalities, 3 passports, and 3 companies to run.

Travelling hundreds of thousands of miles every year on business, Cillin known as the “Homeless CEO” spends most of his life on aeroplanes, at airports or in hotels. He takes beautiful, sometimes haunting unfiltered Instagrams on his mobile device and has amassed a dedicated following.
