Over at artproducer.blogspot.com , readers can find a wide array of information pertaining to photography. While the content of the blog shies away from the artistic aspects, the posts tend to give some practical insights into the business side of the industry.
Author Caitlin Ravin touches on subjects like purchase orders – something that probably does not spring to mind when someone considers becoming a photographer. However, her entry provides some sound advice, especially for those who are in the industry as artists and who could stand to enhance their business sensibilities. The author posts news, relevant links, and self-promotion/marketing tips.
You can also find some photographers that she features every so often. While the photographs themselves are only okay, the interviews are an interesting way to see various photographers’ processes when developing a project.
The best part of the site may be that you leave with a more personal perspective of Caitlin as a photographer: you can follow what’s on her mind, what she finds most challenging and what is going on in her own business.
One of the most personal sections is the "Creative Opinion" section. Caitlin posts questions that call for people’s views on different trends in photography, as well as their personal experiences. These provide the opportunity to interact and create dialogue with Caitlin and others in the biz.
After all, this is the case for many blogs – they can be both informational and personal.
