Blue Pixel

Blue Pixel (www.bluepixel.net) was founded with one mission: to have leading digital photographers teach their craft from an unbiased, real-world perspective. Blue Pixel has provided its digital photography expertise to a long list of clients, including Microsoft, Best Buy, Adobe Digital Kids Club, the Nikon School of Photography, and the A Day in the Life of Africa and America 24/7 projects. Blue Pixel's staff and associates all share a common outlook on shooting digital: Make it simple, and make it fun.

In a 30-year photojournalism career that has taken him around the world and back, Blue Pixel Associate Nick Didlick has been a staff shooter for Canada's Vancouver Sun and National Post newspapers, as well as the news services Reuters and UPI. He was named Reuters Journalist of the Year in 1988, and his work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Times of London, Stern, Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone. Didlick, like Rob Galbraith, was among the world's first photojournalists to switch to digital in 1994, whereupon he reputedly took to taunting film-shooting colleagues with the phrase “If it ain't digital, it ain't news!”
