I love PhotoVision! I LOOOOOVVVEEE PHOTOVISION!! Do you understand what I’m trying to say here?! PhotoVision has been around over a decade and has tens of thousands of pro photographers learning from them.
PhotoVision has much to offer in the way of educational videos. I ran across their products around five or six years ago and I’ve been a fan ever since. The DVDs I bought back then are still helpful and I love to go back and watch them all the time.
PhotoVision offers other stuff as well like products such as calibration targets but what they are most known for and rightly so are their instructional videos.
For a yearly subscription, you can receive their videos six times a year. They also have other DVDs available with all subjects related to portrait photography from top portrait photographers in each given genres such as children’s photography, wedding and senior portraits. Names such as Kirk Voclain, Kia Bondurant, Sarah Petty and Sarah Antisdel. What they ask for membership is so worth the money. If you haven’t purchased their videos before you can go back and get 2009 at a very discounted rate! But even full rate is worth it in my opinion.
Also, check out their facebook page!

Sometimes I get lost reading all these photo blogs. They are full of wonderful photographs, stories, photography tips, and so on. “Rita”, is the writer and owner of a blog site called Coffee Tea Photography.
Rita is a “stay at home mom” who describes herself as being addicted to photography. She also loves to help others with her knowledge by sharing her personally made actions used in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. Her site also includes Storyboards and templates, Textures, and tons of tutorials. Sounds cool right? What if I told you, everything on her site is free? Well, it is! Why free? It’s simple; part of Rita’s passion with photography is helping others.
I’ve found Coffee Tea Photography to be very informative, full of great ideas and useful items. Rita’s site is a great place to learn from and for those of you that can’t afford some of the expensive editing software out there, stop on in and take a look around at Coffee Tea Photography.com

Have you ever done a Google search for a child photographer? There are a ton of very good child photographers out there. Are you looking for someone with wonderfully inspiring child portraits? How about a book on child photography or better yet, a DVD on Contemporary Child Photography? Please allow me to introduce to you Tamara Lackey of Tamara Lackey Photography.
Tamara is a Contemporary Photographer, who specializes in child photography, with a studio based in North Carolina. Her work is full of emotion and glows with inspiration. Her ability to capture the perfect moment seems to be found in every shot.
In her first book, The Art of Children’s Portrait Photography, which I have read, Tamara touches on the many different aspects and how-to’s of child photography. She details her methods not only on how to get fantastic shots but how to market, advertise, and promote your business. Tamara has a fun and witty approach in her writing that makes her book a very informative and enjoyable read. The Art of Children’s Portrait Photography is “a must” for those looking to educate themselves and venture into the direction of Child Photography.
Tamara now has a new DVD called Inside Contemporary Children’s Photography. Just by watching the preview on her website you can see this DVD is professionally made and produced. It is a behind the scenes look at Tamara’s shooting session from start to finish. After watching the preview make sure you read the wonderful compliments and reviews about it.
Tamara has won many awards from WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International. Her work has been featured on the Martha Stewart Show and in many magazines such as Parenting, Town and Country, and Vogue. I hope you enjoy Tamara’s work and feel free to let us know what you think of her book or DVD.
