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.

I am going to begin this Sony a7R IV review by telling you that I have read a dozen other reviews of this camera prior to writing this one. I know what they are all saying. Those other reviews suck. In my opinion of course. My review isn’t going to be another band
Capture One 20 from Phase One launched today. Contrary to popular belief this is the latest update to Capture One. Many are asking what happened to updates 13-19, since the last version of Capture One was 12? Phase One has stated that with a new decade launching in January, they have decided to
It probably doesn’t come as that big of a surprise to you that I am writing about switching from Leica to Sony does it? I have never had a dislike for Sony cameras and lenses. I just had some issues with a few specifications that I felt needed refinement. My first experience with

Composition is Never Forced Photographer and YouTuber Sean Tucker is offering up an insightful video taking a look at composition. Tucker goes beyond the usual ‘rules of composition,’ imploring you to follow your intuition when framing and capturing a photograph — not unlike our “F the Rule of Thirds Post“. The 19-minute video,
Sony a1 Auto Focus Insanity – Yes It Is The One Sony a1 Auto Focus Insanity is a real, it’s not just some glitch in The Matrix. While we would love to just post a 150 image gallery from a recent shoot using the Sony a1 near Albuquerque, New Mexico as “proof in
