Aimed towards photojournalists, corporate photographers, marketers who purchase photography as part of their work, as well as others interested in learning more about the photography industry, the blog’s goal is to educate readers and serve as a venue to share ideas and best practices.
Columnists and contributors include stock-photography expert Jim Pickerell, photojournalist Dennis Brack, Black Star executive vice president John Chapnick, and other noted photographers and industry experts (stay tuned for those announcements). Idea Grove president Scott Baradell is Black Star Rising’s editor, and both Scott and I will serve as contributors as well.
Scott explains in greater detail the idea behind the new photography blog, and provides a history of Black Star, from the early days in 1935 when its founders fled the Nazi regime in Europe to its plans for new initiatives in the photography business.
So have a look around (you can subscribe to the main blog here and the photoblog here) and let us know what you think. And of course, if you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to get in touch. We welcome your participation and look forward to hearing from you.
