Thomas Hawk7,724,493One of our favorite San Francisco photographers is very shortly to become one of our favorite London photographers.  Yes, Chris Chabot has joined the flock at Twitter and is moving to LONDON! To send Chris off in style, we will be having one last epic Chris Chabot photowalk -- and what better place for a photowalk with Chris than the annual Burning Man Decompression event. If you have never shot Decom before, you are in for a treat.  It's a visual smorgasbord of pure delight. We will meet at the *second* entrance, near the corner of 20th and Minnesota Streets at 2:30 pm sharp.  Bring your Canon or Nikon or iPhone or Android... or better yet, be like Chris and bring a Leica!   Whatever you shoot, come and hang out with some great SF photographers and help send Chris off in style.  All skill levels welcome. It's $15 to enter Decom.  More details on the event here:  http://goo.gl/XkJlgnIt's the Chris Chabot Farewell Decompression Photowalk!!!!2013-10-13 23:30:00126

Gailen Mapes85,448Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera M-O - 15 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-04-15 13:44:54167004

Gailen Mapes71,691Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera M-O - 19 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-19 11:43:03177619

As well as extra bulk, these would be one more gadget you'd have to remember to charge. The Made For iPhone protocol and hardware does away with all that as it's already built in to the hearing aids.

Is Google+ for photographers dead?

Pardon my long rant here, but I read on and chime in as well.

There's been a lot of talk lately about the state of things at Google+, with the departure of Vic Gundotra and Google emphasizing Google+ just in general. I never paid too much attention on how Google+ was doing overall because I enjoyed it as a social for photographers more than anything, an area where I know Google+ was a success. I was using Facebook for everything else. We went on G+ photowalks together, I made a lot of new photographer friends (some local like +Michael Bonocore, +Chris Chabot, +Karen Hutton and +Nathan Wirth and others are as far away as +Dave Powell in Japan and +Gordon Laing and +Andy Lee in England).

We published two volumes of charity photobook +Plus One Collection (with the third one still on the work, albeit more slow than last twotimes),... more »

Announcing Plus One Collection Volume III Fundraising Campaign

It's been a long journey, but we are fully focused on this now, and want to get the latest version of the #PlusOneCollectionIII book into your hands before Christmas. To help us get there, we created an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign that will provide us with the funds needed to publish the book. 

All the details are here - http://igg.me/at/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

We also created a video explaining our project. You can find it here - Plus One Collection, Volume III 

We hope you can help up in two ways - first, contribute the funds for the book by picking one of the perks offered there. Second, please help us spread the word! Share the news here, share the news to your friends and family on other social networks and email. Share, share, share!

We set a goal to raise$3... more »

Amazing news about Plus One Collection III

It is with much joy for the last minute miracle of large donations we are writing you all to report that we are now at 93% funding for the publication of the Plus One Collection III. We still have 12 hours to raise the remaining funds, but looks like we're almost there and the book will become a reality! 

Let make it happen by spreading the word one more time. If you have additional funds and want to buy few more copies of the book for holiday gifts for your family and friends, now is a perfect time to do it, as we look to get the remaining 7% of funds. As it stands, only a small number of copies will go on sale after the book ships to all Indiegogo campaign supporters. 

Let's make it happen for Eliza, her family, and all others affected by Sanfilippo Syndrome-Type A who would be blessed by the cure.

BIG NEWS! The books are finally here. Two pallets arrived from Iceland this afternoon and are taking a quick break in my garage while I begin the work of printing the shipping labels and re-packaging them into individual boxes that will go out all over the world. I have a group of teenagers I know from my church that are coming over to help tomorrow night so we can get you the books as soon as we can. All orders should go out in the next couple of days - look for the shipping confirmation.

If you're local to Bay Area, and would like to pick up your copy/copies in person, you can drop by my house in San Jose and do that. I'll also be at work in Mountain View next week during the day, if that's closer. PLEASE LET ME KNOW ABOUT IT ASAP so I don't ship your book.

Lastly, we are almost sold out of the books! At my last count, only 30 or so copies are remaining for... more »

I have a group of teenagers I know from my church that are coming over to help tomorrow night so we can get you the books as soon as we can. All orders should go out in the next couple of days - look for the shipping confirmation.

If you're local to Bay Area, and would like to pick up your copy/copies in person, you can drop by my house in San Jose and do that. I'll also be at work in Mountain View next week during the day, if that's closer. PLEASE LET ME KNOW ABOUT IT ASAP so I don't ship your book.

Lastly, we are almost sold out of the books! At my last count, only 30 or so copies are remaining for sale. If you still need one, grab one fast. We will not be doing another print run. You can order at http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Volume-III

PS - sorry about a boring mobile photo of the pallets. Too tired to try to create anything more interesting!

Plus One Collection III Shipping Update

Great news! The third volume of Plus One Collection has been printed, and all of the books are somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean right now as they're being shipped from Iceland to US and then onto California. We are told they are supposed to arrive to my house in a couple of weeks and I will individually pack them and ship all around the world right away. I really appreciate your patience. It's been a long journey this time, but I'm glad the book is going to see the light. 

If you want to order a copy or two, we still have about 200 left for sale. If you order now, we'll ship them at the same time as Indiegogo orders. Link - http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Volume-III

I expect we'll sell out of the remaining copies pretty quickly, so order while you still can.

We were sent an advanced copy of the book by our publisher, and here are few images of what the book looks like. It's hard to relay in words or pictures - but all of the photographs look so much better in print and we are thrilled with the quality of the book overall. Oddi delivered once again.

#TBT to four years ago and to one of the most colorful sunsets we've seen as a family. This was taken near Santa Cruz. This picture also marked a turning point in my photography. It was then that I realized I want to take more pictures of my family in their environment and that I was to focus on people a lot more than just nature. In my mind pictures of people really stop time and can't be repeated again so they're a lot more meaningful, at least to me, than people-less landscapes.

Wasn't my idea but they did ask to take this shot and post it for everyone's enjoyment. Which I'm always happy to do if it matters to them because I ask them to create a certain photo all the time. I think that's an important element of play that is photography for our family - to allow it to be something that's fun for everyone.

One more vote - let's pick between the two!

Great feedback yesterday from everyone, but we do have a very close race between the two candidates, so I thought we'd have a final vote. Please pick your preference! Vote just once, and for the next four hours (we'll close the vote at Noon Pacific time).

And #PlusOneCollectionIII  is funded!!!

Thank you all very much for your support, contributions and encouragement. I didn't wake up today thinking the book will be a go, seeing how we had $8,000 left to fundraise, but yet somehow and through your generosity, we just crossed the mark, making a publication a reality. 

Especial thanks to our friend +Andrea Martinez  from Italy, whose donation helped us get over $30,000 mark. He went above and beyond, actually contributing several times today. He is one of the photographers who's work will appear in the book, and below is his beautiful image. 

We'll now be very busy finishing the design, getting it to publisher and shipping the book to you. Due to the extension of deadline, I'm not 100% sure we'll make it by Christmas, but we'll do our very best to try!

Amazing news about Plus One Collection III

It is with much joy for the last minute miracle of large donations we are writing you all to report that we are now at 93% funding for the publication of the Plus One Collection III. We still have 12 hours to raise the remaining funds, but looks like we're almost there and the book will become a reality! 

Let make it happen by spreading the word one more time. If you have additional funds and want to buy few more copies of the book for holiday gifts for your family and friends, now is a perfect time to do it, as we look to get the remaining 7% of funds. As it stands, only a small number of copies will go on sale after the book ships to all Indiegogo campaign supporters. 

Let's make it happen for Eliza, her family, and all others affected by Sanfilippo Syndrome-Type A who would be blessed by the cure.

Status of the book and new amazing perks!

Based on the community feedback, we have extended the fundraising campaign time to end on October 9. We are 59% there and perhaps few days and few extra perks will still make the book and our charitable assistance a reality. We know many of you hope that happens. 

We also added few more extra perks on higher end, including portfolio reviews, photo tour of San Francisco and even a photoshoot with Ben Von Wong. 

Take a look and let's do a final push for the campaign!

Plus One Collection III - can we still meet our goal?

You may have seen an email update on the status of the book project. Shortly, it's not looking like we may meet our fundraising goal, with only a couple of days left. A few of us have been brainstorming what we can still do to make the book a reality because I know many of you care and would love to both see the book published, and help our charitable cause. 

So.. First, I'm thinking we'll extend the fundraising deadline by a week or two. I didn't know I could do this, but turns out I can as I just got an email from Indiegogo about it. 

Second, we can introduce additional perks, especially because it looks like the book will sell out (close to 400 copies were already ordered).

So the question to you.. What additional perks do you think we should introduce that will make it worthwhile? 

We can perhaps donate a spot in a workshop, or a photo tour. Or metal print. What else? 

Would love to hear your thoughts and ideas!

Reminder: 12 days left to fund Plus One Collection III

We've got 12 days left but right now we're only 39% funded for publication of the #PlusOneCollectionIII  

What does that mean? This means we still have a lot of work to do to spread the word and recruit our friends and family before the book can go to press.

As with the book, all net proceeds from the sale of the poster will go to Saving Eliza fund. 

What's next? Keep spreading the word about the fundraising campaign! We still need to raise $25,000 before the book can go to press. And if you can contribute, please do. ___

Plus One Collection - Campaign Update + Poster?

Thanks to you all for contributing to a great start to our campaign. After a few days we're already 15% there. I just posted an update and answered a few frequently asked questions. Take a look here - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311#activity

Please continue to spread the word and contribute, if you can!

Also, if we were to create a poster that includes Everyone's photo submitted, would you be interested in buying it? What do you think an appropriate price would be? I don't yet know what it would cost to print, but maybe we can charge $25 or $50? What do you think?

Announcing Plus One Collection Volume III Fundraising Campaign

It's been a long journey, but we are fully focused on this now, and want to get the latest version of the #PlusOneCollectionIII book into your hands before Christmas. To help us get there, we created an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign that will provide us with the funds needed to publish the book. 

All the details are here - http://igg.me/at/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

We also created a video explaining our project. You can find it here - Plus One Collection, Volume III 

We hope you can help up in two ways - first, contribute the funds for the book by picking one of the perks offered there. Second, please help us spread the word! Share the news here, share the news to your friends and family on other social networks and email. Share, share, share!

We set a goal to raise $30,000 in the next 30 days. We know it's a lofty one, but it will allow us to do two things - publish and ship the book to all campaign sponsors, and raise $5,000-10,000 for our charitable cause, Eliza O'Neill. 

The campaign is a fixed goal campaign, meaning, we do need to meet the goal of $30,000 before we receive any funds and can print the book. 

I know many of you who contributed photographs to the book want to know if your photo made it. We're still working on the selection, and will announce the list of contributing artists next week. Stay tuned! 

But in the meantime, we're happy to announce that the book publication process is back on track and with your help, let's make it happen and help Eliza!___

If you haven't seen our latest SmugMug Film about +Chris Burkard, your life is not yet complete. Brilliant work by +Anton Lorimer - and wow, these are some crazy conditions they went through to chase what they love (typing this when it's +105F outside).

Update on the status of the Plus One Collection book

It's been a while that I mentioned anything about +Plus One Collection Volume III which we started to plan publishing earlier in the year. I now get daily inquiries about the status of the project, and I know I need to address this quickly. 

The short answer is that we're still working on it and hope to publish it soon! 

Now the longer answer.. The bulk of the work is done by +Andy Lee and myself and we both got extremely busy this year with various personal things. That put the book project on the back burner. We've always done it for fun, and as volunteers with no compensation. A lot goes into the publishing of the book. Putting images together, selecting the right ones to publish, then publishing it, shipping. There's also accounting, legal, and other issues that happen behind the scenes.Som... more »

Putting images together, selecting the right ones to publish, then publishing it, shipping. There's also accounting, legal, and other issues that happen behind the scenes. Sometimes life gets too busy to work on the volunteer projects, and that's exactly what happened here. 

With that said, we recently resumed working on the book, and here's an updated timeline - 

- Kickstarter / Indiegogo camapaign to fund the book printing will launch right after the upcoming July 4 holidays in US
- official selection of the images will be announced shortly after
- book design and printing will be done by the end of the summer as well
- if all goes well, the book will ship in early fall 

So stay tuned and we really appreciate your patience!___

+Anton Lorimer  and I are having a blast filming our new friend and an amazing children photographer Elena Shumilova out in the rural Russia for a new +SmugMug Film. This was one of the sights we came upon yesterday as we were shooting in a nearby village.

Isn't today a #cowterday?

Is Google+ for photographers dead?

Pardon my long rant here, but I read on and chime in as well.

There's been a lot of talk lately about the state of things at Google+, with the departure of Vic Gundotra and Google emphasizing Google+ just in general. I never paid too much attention on how Google+ was doing overall because I enjoyed it as a social for photographers more than anything, an area where I know Google+ was a success. I was using Facebook for everything else. We went on G+ photowalks together, I made a lot of new photographer friends (some local like +Michael Bonocore, +Chris Chabot, +Karen Hutton and +Nathan Wirth and others are as far away as +Dave Powell in Japan and +Gordon Laing and +Andy Lee in England).

We published two volumes of charity photobook +Plus One Collection (with the third one still on the work, albeit more slow than last twotimes),... more »

We published two volumes of charity photobook +Plus One Collection (with the third one still on the work, albeit more slow than last two times), which was a lot of fun and something I'm very proud of.

And the biggest one yet - +Markham Bennett found me on Google+ back in its early days, brought me over to +SmugMug where I met folks like +Chris MacAskill, +Don MacAskill, +Katherine Cheng, +Denise Gamboa, and I ended up getting a job there as a result of that - a move that changed my life, in a very positive way. 

But at the same time, I'm not using Google+ as much as I used to. Part of it is me because my life has been insanely busy in the last 6 months with the new baby in our family, work, and other big offline events in my life. Part of it though is that I don't see as much engagement on Google+ as I used to. Our posts generate less interest. There's very fewer, if any, offline community activities going on. Google isn't updating Google+ as quickly as it did back in the day. And overall, it seems like the network lost it's momentum a bit.

Sadly, I don't see another network taking the spot as "place where photographers hang out." It used to be Flickr. I was hoping it'll come back alive, but it seems to be as quiet now as it was three years ago, right before G+ came into the scene.

It seems like things aren't what they used to be on G+.

That's my view, but I'd love to hear yours. How has your experience been as a photographer? Are you logging in less or more? How's the engagement? What is the G+ future?___

Question about #PlusOneCollectionIII cause...

You might have heard by now what Ben Von Wong is doing with his #savingeliza  project - check out the video below and also the website - http://savingeliza.smugmug.com/The-Journey

What if we actually donated part (or all?) of the proceeds of the upcoming #PlusOneCollectionIII  to that cause? I know it's not much compared to what Eliza needs, but it is something and it may change her life forever. I did announced we teamed up with another cause earlier, but perhaps we can do that cause for another project in the future. 

What are your thoughts before we make any decisions?
