The Real Frame is a collaboration by photojournalists David Butow and David Paul Morris.

We are both California-based professional photographers and we’ve worked for decades, mostly in the field of photojournalism. We both started as newspaper photographers and more recently have worked for magazines and wire services as well as doing commercial work and photography for non-profits. Our pictures have been published in magazines and books worldwide including National Geographic, TIME, LIFE, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Vogue and Paris Match. We’ve both been lucky enough to do assignments across multiple continents and are eager to share our insights and opinions here.

The posts have fields at the end where you can comment and we hope to make this an open discussion on important topics, particularly the intersection of Artificial Intelligence with photography and journalism.

The gear reviews are independent and unsponsored.
