I stumbled upon a really great blog for anyone interested in fashion and editorial photography. It's called Fashion Photography Blog and she covers a lot of the business aspects and etiquette of submitting your portfolio and marketing yourself. It's great! Check it out!

Hi everyone! Last week I bought myself a portable seamless sweep, and today was the first time I've had the chance to use it. This is my friend Trish. I lit her with a Alien Bee 1600 and the 30x60" softbox camera left and my Alien Bee 800 with a 20" beauty dish to the right of her. Hope everyone is well in Bozeman... it was 72 here today.

Greetings again from Roseland. I have been photographing in woods for the last two days and again tomorrow morning. It has been unusually cold here and the trees have lost all their leaves which has been unfortunate. Also I have been dodging hunters which is freighting. But I have been pretty happy so far, the weather has given a quite different feel to the images, like this one.

OK so I am a blog slacker, but I will try to participate more, since we have found out via various sources that there are lots of people who are looking at your blog to get all kinds of info about our program. Here is a tricolor gum print of my Family of Origin series called Pink Poodles. It shows my new way of scratchy messy gum...see the series at christinaZanderson.com but it won't be finished for about 6 months....

Hello everyone. I have had a website up for about a month now and I would appreciate any feedback you may have - positive or negative. It's definitely a work in progress, so I'm open to your insight on images that may need to be removed, overall feel, missing items, etc. I realize I need to work on the sizing of the images and possibly adding titles to some, but most of that has to do with figuring out how to do this with the website host. Thank you! www.lesliemcdaniel.com

NEAT! Dan from Goodnight Sunrise texted me last night to let me know that Rockett Clothing did this to their site... Rockett is a huge company, and lately seems to have been sponsoring a ton of bands I've been shooting. For the hell of it I've been having the bands throw on their Rockett gear and taking an extra photo or two. It seems to be paying off! I just e-mailed them to let them know I'm the photographer behind BOTH of their head images. Maybe they'll send me a t-shirt or get the word out or something... Anyway check them out... and yes that's the Leigh Lounge in Exotic Animal Petting Zoo's picture.
Please spread the word. I am looking for my Joan Fontcuberta book. One of my students put it on the free book pile outside my office thinking it was a return pile. I would be very grateful if someone has it and could please return it. Thanks!!!

This is a portrait of my friends April and Ryan that I took right before leaving Bozeman last week. I love the Bridgers in this one. My friend Thane was acting as a light stand and holding one of my Alien Bee 1600s off to the right and slightly in front with no modifier. Their goats are milling around on the ground out of the frame, but I have more with goats present in my blog.
