On the Road with Luke Ballard: Photography Workshops (part 9)

On the Road with Luke Ballard: Photography Workshops (part 9)

I don’t know why but Mississippi has always been somewhere I’ve wanted to visit. It could have been the scenes imagined from reading Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn as a child – or perhaps the more modern Grisham novels providing fodder for my imagination of a genteel southern setting.

The Anatomy of the Pitch—No Two Throws are the Same

The Anatomy of the Pitch—No Two Throws are the Same
