Updated Blog

It's been a long time since I last posted anything at all, and I have a really, really good excuse.

I've been busy.

Now that I've explained myself, I'd like to point a couple of things out. Firstly, you probably have noticed that my old blog pages are gone. I have been using Apple's iWeb to build my site, and though it is really easy to use, I had really begun to see the shortcomings of iWeb's built in blogging feature. I got a bit of a bee in my bonnet tonight (those of you that know me well know that once I start something, I can't let it go until it's done) and decided to tackle it. I have integrated my Blogger blog onto my site, and it's looking "Prettyyyy, Prettyyyy, Prettyyy, Pretty Good" as Larry David would say. This will bring all sorts of yet-to-be-discevered functionality that I'm looking forward to exploring in the not-so-distant future. I think I have got everything moved over that I need, though a few of my old blog postings didn't make the cut. No big loss, they were filled with selfish Josh McCulloch Photography propoganda that really served no useful purpose. This brings me to point #2..

Up until now, I have been using my blog to shamelessly point out my achievements in photography. Though there is nothing wrong with this (and I will continue to do just that in moderate amounts), I will also be sharing other various tidbits of photography information with all of you. Everything from techniques and gear I find useful, links to other great photographers, and industry information and trends, to name a few. I'd like to start this off by pointing you to a photographer named Chase Jarvis. Chase is a commercial advertising photographer from Seattle, WA. A good friend of mine worked with Chase on a couple of shoots, and I recently saw a webcast of him giving a presentation at the Photoshelter Photography 2.0 Town Hall in NYC. Well worth the time to watch, as Chase provides some insight into the "Black Box" that is the Commercial Advertising photography industry. Chase strives to share his passion and knowledge with other photographers, and he has inspired me to do the same. Enjoy!

Cheers, Josh

Hey Josh (and Stacy!!)

Love the new blog pages - and the ability to make comments. Great to see you guys this weekend - hope your drive home is going well and you are able to get some great shots on the way - it is a beautiful day today (figures!!)

I will welcome the photography tips, but as a proud aunt, will still look for all your publication notices anyway. Thanks again for the wonderful visit.

Take care,

Love Auntie Sue, Uncle Rick, Laurel and Max
