From the Editor
The Pro Journal studies gear, photography techniques, actual methods to creating photos, and then how to process and catalog all of that photography work.
The Pro Journal is about those little building blocks that help hold the house of photography up. A form of structure that comes from where Jay came from prior to photography – architecture.
Structure is posts, beams, walls, concrete, steel, wood. Today’s photography structure comes in the form of the portrait, the grand landscape, the action photo–any photo. In its simplest form, the Pro Journal is about creating a photograph of anyone or anything that has more meaning to it than just a simple snapshot.
We are continually building the Pro Journal into an online article platform that is now covering inspiration, travel, opinion, change, and news within the photo industry. Have a look around, hopefully we keep you coming back for more.
The Pro Journal comes to you from the heart of the Tetons in Wyoming. Every day the sun rises in different light. Welcome to the journey.
