I am taking a break from the depths of my photo editing dungeon to talk about something that I recently discovered and has made my blog reading much more efficient – Google Reader! Why has no one told me about this? I spend a lot of time reading other photographers’ blogs because I think they are either geniuses behind the camera and/or phenomenal business people (both of equal importance IMHO)…and it really helps inspire and push me to grow my skills and my business. Anyway, Google Reader has made it possible for me to stalk probably 4 times as many photographers in half the time! I just pull up the site a couple of times a day and voila! All the newest blog entries are right there waiting for me!
Here are some of my favorites. These chicks and dudes are super-duper talented with unique styles, and have thriving photography businesses – and some are even fantastic writers to boot making reading their blogs all the more enjoyable.
Hillary Maybery – Weddings and portraits in Idaho, her style is so bright and cheery and looking at her pictures just makes me so happy!
Sarah Rhoads – Sarah and her hubby Chris are super artistic, rockin’ photographers out of Seattle, their style is so unique and I love it.
Jasmine Star - Jasmine blogs about everything, not just photography, I’m slightly embarrassed to say I know her husband’s name (JD), her dog’s name (Polo), and that she wear cowboy boots on her shoots – but thousands of other people also know these things so I don’t feel that bad.
Melissa Jill – Her amazing photos aside, she just seems like a cool, down-to-earth gal who loves her job…I can relate.
Del Sol Photography – I want to shoot destination weddings in Mexico too! Pleeeaaase!!
Wayne Yuan – New York wedding photographer, simply love his stuff, and all of his brides are flawless, how is that possible??
Strobist – Lighting tips and stuff, perfectly nerdy and wonderful.
Have some great stuff to share so stay tuned…and I really don’t work in a dungeon, I’m actually on the 3rd floor, just felt like being dramatic.
Can’t end without a picture of course! In honor of my beloved Phillies and their trip to the World Series for the second year in a row, here’s a snapshot of me and my friends at game 5 last year! Beat the Yankees!!
