Here are a few contemporary photographers that I find both their photography and writing to be enlightening and helpful to my photography. I hope you’ll take a look at their work and that it’s beneficial for you.

Kirk Tuck - Visual Science Lab

He’s a very down to earth photographer working in Austin TX. He does a lot of business related photos, portraits , etc. as well as his own photos. His writing can get technical but he’s also good at talking through is thought process, especiallywhen he’s justifying buying new equipment (we’ve all done that). What I like about his writing is that it’s down to earth and he doesn’t shy away from his mistakes, and is very upfront about things. As it says in his ‘about’ blurb “ > If you don’t like what I write go somewhere else and read something you do like.

He has covered almost every photo topic you can think of, and I’ve listed a few of my favorites.

His Yosemite work is what first caught my attention, and lately he’s been adding astrophotography to his gallery which is impressive. His lightning shots are also spectacular. In addition he has several articles where he offers tips on how he captures his photos.
