Friday Shout-Outs & Fist Bumps

by Grover Sanschagrin

This “Shout Out” is for all the people who haven’t completed their “Show Us Your PhotoShelter” entry – the deadline is March 31st, so you’ve only got a few days left! If you want to get your hands on prizes like a $500 gift card from Adorama, don’t wait until after the deadline to enter the contest.

If you want to throw your name into the contest, you can read the details of the contest from the original announcement on the blog.

A new entry, posted today, comes from Ami Vitale, a contract photographer for National Geographic. She wrote a really nice article that talks about the state of the industry, and its quite optimistic and refreshing.

I recently visited Ami in Miami, Florida (where she is currently attending grad school), and had the opportunity to sit down with her and record a little video interview (below), where she talks about how she is using PhotoShelter, and what life was like before she started using it.


Also, here’s some more Shout Outs to all the people who completed their contest entry, and sent us their links…

A few non-contest fist-bumps are also in order:

Pete Marovich was on-hand to cover President Obama signing the Health Care Reform Bill at the White House, and he wrote a really nice article about the experience.

Michael LaFleur’s website is full of some great concert photography. He’s got a knack for capturing nice moments, both on-stage and off. Pretty cool stuff!

Brad Mangin wrote an article about legendary rock and roll photographer Jim Marshall, who died this week in New York City. Mangin shares a personal story about his experiences hanging out with Marshall and his friends, and share some pictures some of those hang-outs.

Art Wolfe just announced a “Seven City Spring Seminar Tour,” and will be visiting New York City, Toronto, West Palm Beach, Boston, Alexandria (Virginia), Minneapolis, and Costa Mesa (California.)

    Ami’s awesome. She flew into flagstaff to give a talk for northern arizona university’s photography students, and even sat down with some of us to give some feedback on our portfolios. glad to see her updating her website again.
