I’ve not spent a lot of time behind the computer at all this week so I don’t have a lot of links for you. I do want to remind anyone in the Taiwan area that I’ll be giving a presentation on IGVP at 5pm on Saturday 23rd at Huashan Alleycats in Taipei as part of a book festival. If you can make it, come on down. The presentation will last about 15 minutes but there’ll be lots of great discussions with writers, bloggers and journalists all afternoon.
It is a sad week though with news of the deaths of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros in Libya while covering the fighting.
Piper Mackay has been posting some excellent work from her recent trip to Africa on her blog. Rather than give you a single post to go to, I’ll direct you to the main site and you can dive in wherever you choose. Great photography and writing awaits you.
Over at the Fast Track Photographer, Dane Sanders chats with David duChemin. I’ve embedded the video below but head over to the site as well and check out a range of interviews and photography advice. There are well over 100 other interviews and bits of advice.
Ever been confused whether to choose a rights managed approach or a royalty free model? Chris Ridley presents a compelling case for rights managed with discussion of the advantages as well as some of the potential disadvantages to choosing royalty free. Useful information for both the photographer and the photo buyer.
Finally, another shout out to a site. Rear Curtain has just launched and presents photo essays and stories. It’s also open for submission if you have a story to tell. The selection of essays that appears so far is strong and I can see this becoming stronger.
