As has become a yearly tradition on the JMG-Galleries blog I’m kicking off the 3rd annual blog project for you to share your best photos of the past year. Last year we had nearly 100 people take part (Best Photos of 2008 by JMG-Galleries Blog Reader’s) tripling the results from 2007 (Best Photos From 2007 by JMG-Galleries Blog Reader’s). This has proven to be increasingly popular and a great way to introduce JM
The results are in for the Buying Prints from Your Favorite Photographers 2009 blog project. Turn out similar to last year was small, but given the economy was worse this year than last I’m happy with the degree of participation.

This year my entry for my Photo Project: Buying Prints from Your Favorite Photographers 2009 focuses on artists with a fine eye for observation.

In the hope of building upon last years effort I’m kicking off another blog project with the exact same goals. For details see below… “It’s not a photo until its a print“ One of the unique aspec
The work of Guy Tal is the fifth of five prints to highlight from my Buying Prints from Your Favorite Photographers blog project (see results here). I’ve been long over due in posting the 5th installment of my print purchase highlight from last years blog project, but in this case I saved the best for last. Guy Tal is a photographer, author and friend whose work I’ve enjoyed for many years. He is one of t
The work of Mario Zanaria is the fourth of five prints to highlight from my Buying Prints from Your Favorite Photographers blog project. To be honest I got caught off guard with Mario’s photography. I can’t remember exactly how I stumbled on to Mario’s flickr photostream, but I did and I’m really happy that it happened. I really enjoy Mario’s photography and he never ceases to amaze me.
The work of G. Dan Mitchell is the third of five prints to highlight from my Buying Prints from Your Favorite Photographers blog project. When I conceived of the prints blog project Dan was instantly on my short-list and as soon as I started perusing his blog and flickr photostream I knew I’d approach him to buy a print. As good fortune would have it Dan expressed interested in a print exchange and that is exac
