  1. No one on snow with camera in New England? I guess the normal subzero winter weather with another minus 10 for wind chill puts a crimp on easy shooting and gear functioning. (We still ski better than those western powder pansies!)

  2. Here’s a question (and a pet peeve of mine):

    Why do photographers with domain names, i.e. myphotography.com, not use their domain names as their email address, i.e. mike@myphotography.com and instead use gmail, yahoo, hotmail, qwest, etc? You’ve got a flashy site and a domain name, but you fall short with the email address. Now a PE/AD has to remember your business name AND a different email address to get in touch with you.

    Any PEs/ADs out there with any thoughts on this? Does it matter?

  3. I’d love to see a list posted like this, but of Retouchers. For some reason, it seems very hard to locate quality retouchers. Would love to see it listed with specialty too, like “Beauty”, “Assemblage”, etc.

  4. if your taking recommendations , NYC’s Brian Gaberman, hands down one of the best skateboard photographers around, not on the list. The ny list is short and trite.

  5. Glad to see that I made the list! I’m actually relocating to Anchorage, Alaska for awhile beginning this fall.

    I just stumbled across your site, Rob, and I’ve enjoyed reading so far. Even added a link to it on my own blog.

  6. If I can add myself to the comments at least:

    Scott Dickerson, Homer, Alaska – Outdoors (especially surfing AK)

    Impressive list, thanks for sharing.
