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 Shapiro4,132,771I'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

SmugMug46,922Have 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

TTIM 90 – Anna Gunn and the Porto Photo Fest

This week +Ralph Velasco sat down for a chat with British-born and expat-to-Portugal photographer Anna Gunn.

Tired of the constant cold and the rain, Anna packed all her stuff and moved to a nicer climate, settling down in Maia, Portugal, in 2009.Since then her journey has taken her on a path to creating the very first Porto Photo Fest due to launch in September 2017.

The Porto Photo Fest is an event where people can learn more than what’s already available online – content that you can’t get anywhere else. This festival will give you the unique opportunity to go deeper into the creative process with a group of talented and accomplished professionals.

TTIM 89 – Rick Sammon, the Stephen King of Photography

This week we have a returning guest on the show, Canon explorer of light, +Rick Sammon, a man on a mission to make digital photography fun, creative, exciting and rewarding for others, often called the Godfather of Photography. Since he’s such a prolific author, we also like to call him the Stephen King of Photography.

Of course, we talked with Rick about books, including his latest, good and bad workshop behavior, horror stories about gear breaking down at the most unexpected times, music, vacations, creativity, virtual workshops, Botswana, and too many other topics to mention here.

We are sure you will love listening to Rick and discovering his sense of humor.

Think Like a Magazine Editor

Magazine editors want to see a story develop through pictures. I think a little example here will serve well to illustrate the concept. You can also take this as an exercise and do it on the next occasion.

Imagine you are commissioned to shoot photographs to illustrate a story about a restaurant that has recently become popular or has received some prestigious award. Now think, rather literally, about the story of a person going out to dinner in that restaurant.

Getting behind the curtains of a Buddhist monastery and showing the life of its monks in a way that is not contrived or paternalistic is not easy.

Gabriele Rodriquez managed to do so with a series of very compelling images that he shot during a recent trip to Myanmar.

Across the Mojave: Las Vegas to San Diego

by Bob McCormac

Las Vegas is usually a final destination for most people landing at McCarran International Airport. While it’s worth a couple days to take in the glitz of Las Vegas, the approximately 335-mile drive through the Mojave Desert to San Diego is really a segue that should not be missed.

TTIM 88 – The State of Landscape Photography, Part 2

This week’s episode is a special one. During the latest Out Of Chicago Summer Conference, Ugo was the moderator of a panel discussion about the State of Landscape Photography. The panelists were three very well-known landscape and outdoor photographers: Josh Cripps, Ian Plant, and Bill Fortney.

What ensued was a lively and, at times, humorous discussion about the joys and pains of being a professional landscape photographer, interspersed with reflections about the direction the industry is going: Are we seeing a resurgence of “natural” photography? Is it still possible to make a living doing outdoor photography? and more.

As the panel went on for about 90 minutes, we split the recording in two parts. This is the second part.

How To Make The Most Of Photography Conferences

Photography conferences are great occasions to learn something, meet old friends and make new acquaintances, and get to visit new cities.

Many photographers, however, often come home from a conference feeling they have missed something and haven’t made the most of their time there. These kinds of events can be expensive, so I think it pays off to prepare oneself so that attending a conference or a workshop doesn’t end up being a waste of time and money.

Here are some of my suggestions that I hope will be useful.

Two ways to photograph in the rain

by Simon Patterson

Capturing the mood of the pouring rain in camera can be difficult. Standard auto or aperture-priority modes often miss the feel of a rainy day, and leave us with unsatisfactory flat looking images.

Just finished doing a bit of redesign of my home page. No biggies, but the focus was on presenting all of the most relevant sections and content offers right on the front page, which just happens to be the most visited one.

For whatever reason, hundreds of people google my name and land on this page each week. Bizarre! ;)

I would love any feedback on the design, most notably if it's clear, engaging and if it makes you want to click around to learn more.

Discover Oman

I am currently in the early planning stages of a photo tour of Oman, to be held sometime during the winter of 2017-18. Exact dates and many details are still to be finalized, but the most likely time frame appears to be December 6th to 13th.

The tour will include private transportation, stays in major hotels, one night “glamping” in the desert, and the assistance of a local guide and of a professional photographer.

Oman is one of the safest countries in the world and benefits from a very mild climate throughout the winter.

Matt’s passion for the outdoors shines through in his stunning landscape and nightscape photography. He finds the most enchanting moments in which vibrant colors and lively motion overhead complement the stillness of the world below. Payne uses long exposures and composites to illuminate the dark night skies and to capture the motion of the stars in visually stunning compositions. His work encourages viewers to stop and take a moment to appreciate the natural wonders of our world in ways that can’t be captured with the naked eye.

Five Days in Oman – Part I

What can you do in Oman in just five days? Apparently a lot. Having recently had the opportunity to take a week off and a handful of frequent flyer miles to spend before they expired, I looked at my options and realized that I could get two award return tickets to Abu Dhabi.

I’m not a fan of the modernity and of the exaggerated luxury of the Emirates, so I definitely didn’t want to spend a week there. Luckily, you can fly for cheap from Abu Dhabi and Dubai to Muscat, Oman. I had heard great things about that country from a friend, so I had been wanting to visit it for a long time and this was just the perfect opportunity to finally do it.

The Making Of “The Sky Over Berlin”

Many times, when I show a photo, I get asked how I made it, so I decided to share some of my favorite shooting and processing techniques with my readers. This is the first article in a series that I plan to carry on indefinitely and that I am calling “The Making Of”. Each week I hope to be able to write a post every week, detailing location, camera settings and other details about the taking of the image, and post-processing steps.

My Favorite Photo Locations in Venice

Who doesn’t love Venice? And who doesn’t love to photograph Venice? For someone who visits Venice for the first time, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the possibilities and risk missing some of the best locations. Over the years, I’ve ended up compiling a list of my favorite locations to which I return again and again to photograph them at different times of day and in different weather conditions.

TTIM 75 – Matt Brandon

For this week’s episode of the podcast, I had a great conversation with +Matt Brandon.

Matt Brandon is a Malaysia-based assignment photographer; Matt has experience photographing for nonprofits, assignment, and editorial work. Recently Matt was the still photographer for Indian Summers a Channel 4 & PBS series filmed in Penang, Malaysia. Matt works well with writers and producers. Matt often collaborates with NGOs to tell their stories and to train their field staff to do the same.

Amongst the topics discussed were the importance of the human form in composition, how to meld in with the crowd, what elements contribute to stronger photos, how to create narrative depth through layering of various elements. We hope you will find this interview as insightful as it was for us.
