Monday blog's looking at you.. again

The amount of information out there is truly astounding, and not only that, but its also free.Talented photographers, some experts in their fields, some only starting out, others like myself, hungry to shoot and develop their own style. They all have one thing in common; they blog. And I like reading them. And learning from them.

A fantastic blog with must see tips for lightroom. Another of Scott Kelby's babies by the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Just go there if you use lightroom.

Another great lightroom blog by Sean McCormack, whom I had the pleasure of meeting when David Hobby last came over to the UK in December 2008. Great read, again, full of good information. Definitely worth a visit.

Another photographer, Quoc-Huy, whom I also met at the same Strobist seminar. Great photography and great energy; he was a guest blogger on Glyn Dewis blog a while ago. Well worth a visit.

I just found this blog... I'm playing catch-up with myself! It is a fantastic blog on basically everything you ever wanted to know about a photography business but were afraid to ask! Read it regularly; it is food for thought, the current post is about keywords... good stuff.

Drew Gardner's blog. Fantastic photographer - great location photography. Read this as often as you can.

Another photographer I have only just come across; Paul Pratt, from over in San Francisco. Great moody portraits, lit just the way I like 'em. Real film noir, I am always interested to see what Paul shoots next.

Great wedding photographers, Jaco and Daleen, a husband and wife team that are fantastic wedding photographers. their photographs are full of flair .. not flare... originality and are very contemporary. A real inspiration.

I keep browsing, following links on other photographers website and finding really amazing images taken by really talented photographers. It's just great fun.

If you are in the mood for surfing, check out Glyn Dewis' blog on, he posted a really interesting '... Youtube Follow Friday' in the spirit of the Twitter Follof Friday; great idea Glyn and thanks for the heads up; I'll be subscribing...

Thats all for now, I am working on a post about Branding and Image which will be posted soon...
just follow the red shoe...


  1. Thanks for the info Noel. A few sites that I haven't come across there, that I'll go off and read.

    That's one of the great things about the net - there is just so much out there that you're bound to keep finding new photographers and sources of information or inspiration out there.

    For instance if I hadn't have seen Glyn's posting on Scott Kelby's blog, I would never have found his site; and if I hadn't have found his site I wouldn't have found yours or Kelley's; and if I hadn't have found your site (on Ireland) I wouldn't have recalled all those memories of home!

    All the best,



  2. Noel,

    Great post with a great bunch of folks to check out. Thanks too for the mention about the YouTube #FF; there's just so many superb people out there with so many outlets i guess this is another way to make sure that as many people as possible get to see them.

    All the best to you,

    ps> Lovin' the shoe image with your cards!

  3. David, Glyn, thanks for dropping by.

    @David, its amazing who you meet on the wbe, for all that is said about the possible negative aspects, I have only found it to be positive. I love the way connections are made and knowledge is shared.

    @Glyn, as I said to you on Friday, the worrying thing is I think of them as my shoes now...
