Crash Taylor’s Interview Site

March 19, 2010

Today’s site just blew me away! I am so happy I found it. I am surprised I’ve never heard of it. It is called Crash Taylor – The World’s Best Interview Site About Photography. It was love at first site. I totally fell in love! He interviews the best of the best. Photographers that specialize in portraits, weddings, fashion and even sports. He features a new interview every month and the photographers are so interesting to read.

They are photographers you may have heard of like: David Ziser, Paul Johnson, David Beckstead, Jules Bianchi, Grant Oakes, Michael Grecco, Jasmine Star, Andy Marcus, and the list goes on and on!

Here is a segment from his site where he discusses exactly what he does:

“Welcome to photographer interviews by Crash Taylor. Every month Crash will be interviewing a photographer whose work pushes the boundaries of our profession to create images that are emotional, edgy, original, and most of all capture a unique moment in time. ¬†Whether you’re an amateur or seasoned pro, Crash hopes these interviews will inspire you to stamp your own imprint on the landscape of great photography and become the best and most innovative photographer you possibly can be.”

Crash is an award winning wedding photographer from the UK and was voted one of the top ten wedding photographers in the UK by Professional Photographer Magazine.

He is certainly accomplished and he knows what good photography is. He is able to ask the right questions. The questions that answer what we all want to know about these photographers. His questions are indepth and the interviews are beautifully written and put together.

I look forward to reading through them all. I am sure it will take me some time. But it will be worth it!

StudioLighting.net – awesome resource for studio photographers

February 27, 2010

When I first began becoming interested in learning more about studio lighting than what I was already doing, I found studiolighting.net. Bill and Ed are the photographers behind this amazing resource for studio shooters.

StudioLighting.net is most likely known and popular for their great podcast Lightsource. This podcasts interviews really great and technically proficient photographers about their lighting, their diffusion choices and even their experiences with subjects, but it really does narrow down to their lighting. Lightsource is certainly the reason I keep going back to this site. Of course, you can subscribe to their podcast through itunes.

Other things StudioLighting.net has to offer are articles, book reviews, news, diy tutorials and much more. This site has been in existence for years and continues to be a source of help and inspiration for studio photographers everywhere.  Definitely one of my favorite sites out there. Check it out!
