Over to you Kevin…(foreword by Joanne Carter)

‘Here is an image that was captured late in the day in Chicago about two weeks ago. The sun was setting, commuter traffic was building, trains were running and I still had battery power after several hours shooting earlier in the day. Had I not conserved my battery power I would have missed out on this late day experience and moment’.

‘When out in the field shooting try to conserve battery on your camera phone by turning off all programs accept the one camera app to take pictures. Additionally turn off your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections to conserve additional battery power. By turning all unnecessary programs and connections this will allow you to shoot much longer in the field and not kill your batter life.

You can’t shoot images on your mobile phone if your batter is dead and the best picture of the day often comes at the least expected moment so be prepared and hold on to all the battery power you can’.

When not performing my covert operations for the FBI, I spend my free time saving baby harp seals in the most populated area of the Arctic. On Holiday’s I travel to London to play Mac Beth at the Savoy Theatre. I frolic, I weave, I connect dots, I carve soap sculptors and I am a part time Lego artist. Although there is no know record of it, I once won the Nobel peace prize for my ground breaking and innovative designs with shelf-paper. I spotted, trapped and released Big Foot while camping on the Yukon River. I am the man behind the voice on Movie Phone. I never buckle my seat belt while on a plane. I saw the real Jim Morrison perform live last week in a small hotel bar in San Juan Puerto Rico. He sang, DON’T GET AROUND MUCH ANYMORE and hummed the theme song from STAR WARS. I am the player to be named later in any professional draft. Every other Tuesday morning I play dodge-ball with the Pope at the Vatican under St. Peter’s square. I always let His Excellency win! I refuse allow gravity to effect me. I have a map that shows the exact location of the fountain of youth. I fly a Pegasus to save on gas. And I was employed at Playboy Magazine for 18 years and served as the Senior Photography Editor and Managing Content Producer for Playboy Digital. Currently, I am a photographer, producer, Chief Editor at the #JJ community (@joshjohnson on Instagram) and a partner at Creator Gallery. Although I have had a relatively quiet life thus far, I see some really excitement times coming my way writing for

    Excellent and simple tip! I’ll need to remind myself to do this. I do carry two extra battery packs also but now everything will last much longer with this reminder, thanks!
