Since the 1920s, when New York started rapidly developing skyscrapers, city skylines have been a staple of every major city.

They have been a symbol of wealth and power and they enable a large number of people to live and work together in our city centres. Some of the most popular skyscrapers in the world include the Empire State Building, the Burj Khalifa and the Tokyo Skytree Tower.

However, what you might have not considered as much are the photographic opportunities that come with a dense skyline. …

In the age of the COVID pandemic, our lives have changed dramatically. A lot of us have been cooped up at home with friends and family, not being able to go outside and carry out our everyday activities.

Likewise, the way we make money and earn a living has changed too. Lots of us now work at home on our laptops. This is all thanks to the amazing invention that is the internet and being able to work remotely would have been considered impossible even as recently as a decade ago.

Because a lot of us can now work remotely…

In a shocking turn of events, it has been revealed at WWDC 2021 that Apple will be supporting the iPhone 6s on iOS 15. If you currently use an iPhone 6s this is good news for you and it means that you will have had up to 7 whole years of support.

To see this happen in this day and age when it seems as if companies want to add planned obsolescence into their products, is incredible.

It somewhat counters the argument that Apple products are less value for money than Android products and shows that Apple has a commitment…

So, it’s that time of the year again. Yes, WWDC 2021, where Apple shows off its plans for the next year regarding its products, IOS and any other notable events, stuffing its keynote to the brim.

Unlike in previous years, Apple has conducted this event virtually due to COVID-19. As a result, the Apple team present the new features in their products on the fancy Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.

I think this is cool and it is great to see the virtual technology put to good use as you see the presenters use nifty effects to teleport from…

Hi all! Hope you are having an amazing time. It is nice to see the sun come out more often recently and I hope you are all enjoying the start of summer.

Fingers crossed more shops & activities can reopen and here in the UK, we are well on track to fully reopening on June 21 (hooray!)

As you may have noticed, I have not written any articles recently in the past few months or so. …

So I'm back with another income and progress report for you. This time I have now been writing on Medium for around 4 months. Since then I have been consistently writing up articles and I have been amazed at the Medium platform overall.

Medium has exceeded my expectations. It is a fun, creative platform that allows you to draft, edit and submit articles with ease.

The editor is simple to use and it removes unnecessary distractions, allowing you to write easier.

The earnings have been decent too and I find the Medium Partner Program to be very handy as it…

Yes, the title is right and no, it’s not clickbait.

To be a successful entrepreneur you need to not only work hard but also work smart.

You no doubt work hard at your 9–5 job, but it’s not getting you to financial freedom to become a millionaire.

This is because you need to not only use your time to earn money immediately but you also need to plan for the long-term.

When you work a 9–5 job, you are trading your time for cash

If you are looking for a photography project that will keep you motivated, accountable and on track, you may want to give this project a try.

I call it the Four Seasons and I think it is a project that you will enjoy. The theory behind it is simple however you will need to take a few points into consideration before plunging headfirst into your photoshoots.

So, what do you do as part of this project then?

Simple: You go to a place, do a photoshoot in one season, and then return to that same place for the other three…

For me, these past few months have been very exciting. I have recently started a photography blog and written on a regular basis for Medium now. All while managing exams and revising.

Throughout my life, I have been obsessed with entrepreneurship and making money by running businesses and chasing exciting entrepreneurial pursuits.

Now I have started to be able to make that a reality. How? Via passive income.

Passive Income is a way of making a regular income without any immediate effort from you. This means you do not need to trade your time and effort for cash.

It is…

When Apple was founded, it transformed the way we thought about consumer technology.

When Steve Jobs started the enterprise he kept creativity and innovation at the very core of the values of the company.

Almost 50 years later these very same core values dictate the design and setup of all of their products.

After analyzing this I found some key lessons we can all learn from Apple and co. regarding how companies should design their products and the overall experience that encompasses this.

Lesson 1: Less is more

For a very long time companies never spent any time trying to make consumer gadgets easy to…
