I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

My Favorite Photography Blogs

On the fence about this one. I love the moment, I'm just not sure it works as a photo well as I think it does. 
This is not the same as my favorite photo blogs. That's another blog post. This is for blogs that generally talk more about photography than show it, and some that show a selection of artists, not just one person's work. My blog would not qualify. In fact, it would be disqualified immediately. Mine is definitely a photo blog.

So, photography blogs. In no particular order:

The Online Photographer This is such a great blog. I absolutely check it first every day. It has everything: some camera news (but not too much, because I'm generally not interested in the latest point and shoot, but might have some passing curiosity about a Leica or Micro 4/3 camera), some bodies of work, usually a bit esoteric but high quality, some print offers that I haven't taken advantage of but someday might, some well written random ramblings (usually on Sundays), and various articles about technology or physics or maybe philosophy as they pertain to photography. And that's a piss-poor synopsis, but it gives you a taste. HIGHLY recommended. Really.

The Visual Science Lab I didn't really understand this blog when I started reading it. It's a bit all over the place. When I started reading the author, photographer Kirk Tuck, was obsessed with Olympus cameras and I really couldn't relate, not owning nor even wanting particularly to own an Olympus. But what gear he's shooting with is really beside the point. He is an incredibly prolific writer, spinning out endless essays about the worth of various parts of the photography business and process as a whole. What I love about him most is that he changes his mind almost every week. Yet I wouldn't characterize him as wishy-washy or indecisive. He's just a bit quicksilver, unpredictable. Always a good read. Even when you don't particularly care to purchase or even try the equipment he's talking about.

Joe McNally's Blog Always human, always a great story, most often about the light, it's a good read. Even if, like me, you couldn't even begin to attempt the shots he does in five minutes regularly.

PixelatedImage Blog If you don't know about David Duchemin, you've been under a rock. Ever about the process and the photographer's psyche, and then also the next great image, it's a must read. He hasn't been posting much lately, but you can always check out Craft & Vision to get your fix.

Zack Arias A rare blogger, when he does it's golden. Subscribe via RSS because you'll get tired of checking back. Love his GOYA contests, as well as the video portfolio critiques. We need more, Zack!

Ok, stay tuned for my favorite photoblogs, coming up in a few days! And feel free to post your favorite photography-related blogs in the comments.


  1. I think I would have cropped from the lefthand edge of the bush to the tip of the lamp post and no more!

  3. I'm not sure I agree; crop the photo from the bush and it creates a valley where the eye focuses on the person with their dog. As it is right now, it's more of a landscape shot where you can appreciate the beauty of the scenery and the image as a whole.

  4. Thanks for the list Jessica. Had two on my read list and added the other two to my ever expanding Feedly read list.

    Enjoy the photo as well. Find it whimsical and the colors help give it that quality.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
