Frey Bentos

Added on by Larry D. Hayden.

Martin Herrera has published a blog post on Frey Bentos - Epicenter of the Uruguayan Industrial Revolution.

Martin has written about the trip I took with himself, Dan Milnor and Diego Vidart in February of 2012. It was a great trip and a lot of really impressive work was put together. I'm honored to have one image included in the story.

The image you see here is from the factory that Martin writes about in his story. Great trip. Great story. Great friends.

The New Mexico Project

Dan Milnor has started publishing his ongoing project entitled "The New Mexico Project" and has started a tumblr page in order to share. This is a chance to see how a real photographer pursues a project from start to finish. He's including images, video, notebooks and tips on how to pursue your own project.

I'm on his feed and I've started following Dan's progress. And I have to say, it's been enlightening. Now Dan is a personal friend of mine but don't let this stop you from getting on over to his site. If you've ever wondered how a project gets put together and what the mindset of the photographer is while doing so, this is a good place to start.

Dan is generous with his information and believes that sharing information is just part of the process. And this is something of an experiment for him as well. Showing work before it's completed is a rule he generally doesn't break. But in an effort to see where this all goes, he's taking a major project and sharing it with the world. Take a gander if you will, follow along with his progress and I guarantee you'll learn something in the process. Make sure you hit the follow button. And if you've have questions, ask away. Dan has always been very responsive on his SMOGRANCH site and I'm sure he'll continue to do so with this project as well.

iPad App Shares Revenue

Added on by Larry D. Hayden.

Once Magazine, a new app for the iPad, will be sharing revenue with the contributing photographers in a 50/50 split for each issue. The first issue is free and you can download the app now. Each subsequent issue will have a small charge but there will be 3 photo stories per issue.

Personally, I'm looking forward to this new medium and I hope this venture is successful. For one, I think I'll get to see really good photography. Secondly, images on the iPad look great. I just hope that it doesn't become a good old network and we see the same old photographers we always see. If that happens, I suspect the venture will fail. I know I'll be less likely to subscribe. I want to see fresh new talent and people that have invested time and effort into their stories. Key words are TIME and EFFORT!

It's obvious, from spending time with the app, that a lot of time and effort went into the design. There are timelines, audio clips, good captions, maps and other little tidbits that make this a must have app for lovers of photojournalism. Take a gander at the first issue and I think you'll be hooked.
