Join us LIVE tonight July 25th at 8PM PST for Photo Talk Plus!!!!!

There's More Than One Way Off the Island


Tonight’s Photo Talk Plus is going to be AWESOME!!!! We have none other than the pioneer and godfather of abandoned night photography himself Troy Paiva as our special guest.

Troy has been making amazing light painted night photographs for over two decades. Along the way he’s published three books and published thousands of photgraphs online, including many at his website Troy’s documented the out of the way, abandoned California desert in ways that few others will ever come close to. He regularly holds workshops on his well regarded technique.

Troy has long been a big influence of mine and it’s his distinctive night scenes that have encouraged me to pursue some of this type of work of my own (like this image of a submarine on Mare Island here).

We will have some wonderful panelists joining Lotus Carroll and I tonight to help interview Troy who also are greats themselves in abandoned photography including Sly Vegas, Scott Frederick, Amy Heiden, Ian Ference, Ricardo Lagos and as always Vidcast Network’s wonderful host Keith Barrett.

We will also have some interesting stories on this week’s show including the new Canon mirrorless camera, the winner of our Blurb Books / SmugMug photo project giveway, an update on Scott Jarvie’s Photography Decathlon, a story about a wedding photographer who was threatened by a lawyer with a $300,000 lawsuit, and tips on how to maximize the potential of your photo posts on Google+.

Thanks as always to our wonderful sponsors Adorama, Blurb Books, Drobo and SmugMug! Be sure to check them out at and
