I do a lot of stuff related to photography and the business
of photography, so I thought I'd try to organize things into a semi-coherent
mess. Some of these you may find useful, some not. No sort
of endorsement is expressed or implied, and I get no sort of kickback
from any of these. Most probably don't even know I link to them.
I'm trying to do things alphabetical, so that's their only ranking.
Camera And Processing Supplies
- Abe's Of Maine - A good camera store, and
I don't think they have anything to do with the nasty toothpaste outside
- Action Camera - Great photography store for
both film and digital.
And I highly recommend their swap meets, usually in April and September. They
do sensor cleaning for tips -- I recommend at least $10 in the jar --
have a great selection of high-end gear, bags, and accessories for most
cameras, and have a staff that's friendly and great to just hang out
Adobe - The fine
folks who make some pretty decent editing software.
- Adorama - Good camera store
that'll screw up any spell-checker.
- B&H Photo Video - I
like their organization, but they seem to be straying a bit far from
photography of late and more into general consumer electronics.
- DP Review - a good source if
you're looking for a camera, they have a nice buyer's guide where you
can enter your priorities and see what comes up. They were better when
they were independent, but they've since been sucked up by a huge
company. By who they recommend for buying from, you can probably
guess who bought them.
- Photomatix -
Excellent HDR and Exposure Fusion software
Every photographer has their specialties. Just because I know how
to take really nice architectural pictures does not mean I know how to
photograph weddings. And vice versa. Listed alphabetically only.
- Airshotz - Aerial
and video photography
based in El Dorado County, California. I'm clumsy enough with just
tripod, so I recommend Airshotz for boom, aerial, and video work.
Artistic Photography By Tami - Wedding and portrait photographer
based in El Dorado County, KCRA3 A-List Nominee
- Bella Day Photography
- Wedding photographer based in El Dorado County, California
- Maria Rummel
Photography - Wedding and portrait photographer in El Dorado Hills,
Photography - Portrait and Wedding photographer in El Dorado County,
Real Estate Stuff
I primarily do architectural photography for real estate agents. As
such, I run into people in the field I'd like to recognize and have a link
for here. I'd rather not get into the habit of recommending real
estate agents here, although I have referred some to friends before on the
- Artistic Interiors - Staging
done by Jodi King. I've never actually photographed anything she's
staged, but I've seen her work and think she does a very nice job.
Staging - Staging done by Linda Spainhower. I've seen her work
and it's very tasteful.
- Showhomes of Folsom
Lake - Another staging company. Not sure if I've done anything of
theirs or not, but I've like the look they've given a couple of other
Listing Photos - Twitter feed of, well, bad listing photos. I
hope to never appear on this site either.
- Bad Realty Photos - Another Twitter feed of bad listing photos."
Real Estate Agents
I'm considering whether or not to link to agents and their websites here. Bear with me.
Unfortunately, there are a number of sites dedicated to bad
listing photos. I try to make sure none of mine will ever appear on
these sites. You should, too.
