Many of us have learned a thing or two (or more!) from him via his helpful public shows and public postings. And now for the first time, there is a structured training product he has created so we can get the best hangout training around on our own schedule.

Alan Shapiro4,135,223I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making *the best bags in the world.*) Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0079

SmugMug47,089Have you ever wondered how to get your photos picked up by ad agencies? How does a photographer get their foot in the door? These are questions many of us have thought about before, since photography (and ads) are everywhere we look. Well, SmugMug Pro @114056084994793924628 helped answer some of those question during a recent SmugMug podcast (bit.ly/ZsDwsb). But, we found, that the interest in this subject is off the charts, and the follow up questions for Alan have been coming in fast and furious. So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout!  _Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST._ Have a question you would like us to ask Alan? Simply add it as a comment here, on this event. Alan will also do his best to respond to any questions we do not ask during the broadcast, right here in the Google+ event. So make sure to RSVP, and post your best question for Alan. We will even be giving away a year of SmugMug Portfolio to one lucky person who asks a question before the end of the live hangout.  And yes, this will be recorded to view on our YouTube channel.  #Photography #Advertising #Commercial #SmugMug #SmugMugProWhat Ad Agencies Want From You - Interested in Fashion or Commercial Photography?2013-06-12 03:00:0076

Dear Google+, why should I even care about you...

...when this is a typical sample of the most meaningful and intelligent comments I get on my posts here?

When the only interaction I get is from idiots, illiterates, spams, scammers and bots?

When I get 5 to 10 messages a day on hangouts from scammers posing as pretty girls?

Does anyone care about this place anymore?

TTIM 63 – Expert Roundup #3: Newbie Mistakes

This week’s edition of the podcast is a bit special. Unlike our typical episode, where we have a conversation with a guest, what we’ve done this time is to contact some of our previous guests and ask them one question. We’ve already done this twice in the past, when we published our “expert roundups” but this time we’ve also asked them to record their answer, so you can hear it in their own voice.

The question we asked was the following:

What is one thing you know now about photography that you wish you had known when you started out in your career as a photographer?

We received and collected answers from 18 of our guests, so there’s a lot of information here for you to consume. They shared some great stories and we hope that listening to them will better equip everyone who wants to take upphotography a l... more »

I'm In A New York State Of Mind

Posting this only now, because it's been a trip organized at the very last minute, but in less than 48 hours I will be flying to New York, where I will spend the whole week, until Friday.

Any New Yorkers wanna meet up, have some drinks, snap some pics? I should be free each day, after about 5PM. Just let me know!

TTIM 59 – Roberto Salas and the Cuban Revolution

To say that our guest for this episode of the podcast has a few stories to tell would be a huge understatement. With a career spanning 60 years and having been a direct witness of some momentous episodes of the 20th century, including the Vietnam War and, from very close, the Cuban Revolution, Roberto Salas is an old school gentleman who has a surprisingly modern attitude towards photography.

Roberto Salas has documented the revolution from the Sierra Maestra to the Bay of Pigs, as well as the only known meeting between Castro and Ernest Hemingway. He served as a U.N. correspondent and war correspondent in Southeast Asia, including Cambodia and Vietnam, spending a year behind the Vietcong lines.

If you have ever seen some of those black-and-white photos of Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara from the heyday of the Cuban Revolution, chances are you have seen some of Mr. Salas’ photographs. We have put some of his best below the fold, to freshen up your memory.

+Ralph Velasco regularly visits Mr. Salas in his home in Cuba, when leading tours there, and the last time he thought he’d record a short interview for the benefit of our podcast’s audience. What resulted was a fascinating account of the life and times of a great witness of the events of the past century. We are absolutely thrilled to be able to share this with you.

TTIM 58 – Anthony Pond Between Film And Digital

+Anthony Pond has a story of traveling and photographing that goes back several years, having been to Timbuktu twice and to the rest of Africa a few more times in a very adventurous way, across the Darien Gap, the jungles of Borneo, and more. All of that he did with film cameras (before the advent of digital) before moving to a digital system. He’s now shooting a mixture of digital and film with Leica rangefinders because of the slowing down and the deliberation that the system affords him.

Touring Campania with the Fujifilm X-T2 , Part 1

I'm so damn lazy... I still have to finish writing parts 3 and 4 of my series of articles on the Cyclades Islands of Greece, but since I brought my shiny new toy (Fujifilm X-T2) with me on its first trip last month, I decided to start writing a series about that trip and share my impressions using the new camera.

I think I might suffer a bit from ADD. Enjoy!

Dear Google+, why should I even care about you...

...when this is a typical sample of the most meaningful and intelligent comments I get on my posts here?

When the only interaction I get is from idiots, illiterates, spams, scammers and bots?

When I get 5 to 10 messages a day on hangouts from scammers posing as pretty girls?

Does anyone care about this place anymore?

Tips for Getting Started in Travel Photography

I’ve always loved traveling and being able to bring memories home from my travels, so travel photography was a natural choice for me. What started as a hobby soon transitioned to a passion, and now it has become a part-time job. I’m fortunate to have a day job that takes me around the world, so the challenge is to cram as much shooting as possible into the limited time I have on location. In this article, I’ll give you a few tips for making the best use of your time if you’re just getting started in travel photography.

TTIM 55 – Passage To India

India is a continent and one can’t hope to capture it adequately in less than a lifetime. +Ralph Velasco just spent there a couple of weeks, scouting the place for one of his upcoming tours, and tried at least to get a glimpse of its beauty, amidst the chaos of its cities.

We caught up while Ralph was in Tokyo, on his way back home, and discussed for half an hour about his impressions of this great country and of its people. Listen to our conversation, if you want to know more about India.

TTIM 52 – Going Beyond the Snapshot with Brenda Tharp

Travel photography is not a very well defined genre and if meant to encompass every photograph taken while traveling, then millions of travel photos are created every day. How can a serious travel photographer stand out from the crowd and produce work that goes beyond vacation snapshots?

What about choice of subject, composition, light, and gesture? How can we exploit those factors to create truly compelling photos and not just snapshots?

These are some of the questions we asked of our guest for this episode, +Brenda Tharp.
