Resources for Photographers...

The resources below are ones that I've worked with over the years. I've found them to be high-quality and a pleasure to work with.

 

Hunt's Photo & Video  https://www.huntsphotoandvideo.com — Hunt's is a great source for photographic gear. They are competitive and want to develop relationships with their customers to help support their needs. Contact Alan Simaljin at 100 Main St. Melrose, MA 02176. (781) 462-2383 asamiljan@huntsphoto.com. Mention Susanna Euston Photography to learn about discounts available to you.

Mountain Lens Retreat — http://www.mountainlens.com — "Mountain Lens is a unique twenty-acre retreat nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains that offers educational programs for photographers and other creative individuals. Our primary mission is to help photographers and other artists nurture, share, and master their craft and artistry in a peaceful and supportive environment." Take it from me, Mountain Lens is absolutely beautiful. I hold my photography workshops there and it is perfect for the small groups I prefer to work with. 

Asheville Photo Tourshttp://www.ashevillephoto.tours — Bonnie and Chris Allen are expert hikers of the Blue Ridge as well as photographers. Check out their tours to see if there is an option for you!

LifePixel.com — http://www.lifepixel.com  — The premier source for Infrared camera conversions! Their services are second to none and they have extensive educational material on Infrared Photography. See Susanna's gallery on their website at https://www.lifepixel.com/galleries/infrared-photography-gallery/susanna-euston-infrared-gallery.

LensWork magazine — http://www.lenswork.com  LensWork, in its 20th year, is published six times a year. In its LensWork  http://www.lenswork.com LensWork magazine —  you will find articles, interviews, and portfolios all about images and the creative process. Each high-quality print magazine presents six black and white folios per issue (soon to change to include color, as well), while LensWork Extended, the digital version, also includes one or more folios in color. Check out LensWork Extended #118 for Susanna's Autumn 2014 abstract images!

Craft & Vision — http://craftandvision.com — A great source for cutting-edge books and videos by a variety of skilled and visionary photographers. All publications are packed with inspiration and instruction. Not to be missed!

The Arcanum, Magical Academy of Artistic Mastery — http://thearcanum.com The Arcanum has become my most important source of continuing growth as a photographer! It utilizes the time-tested method of training through assignments and critique, within the context of a Mentor ("Master") / Apprentice relationship. Augmented with feedback by fellow apprentices, I find my vision and skills growing by leaps and bounds in my chosen genre of abstract photography.

Martin Bailey Photography — http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com  Martin is a wonderful photographer—and my mentor through The Arcanum, Magical Academy of Artistic Mastery (see below)—out of Tokyo, Japan. Martin teaches through workshops and tours in Japan, Africa, and Iceland, among other locations. He produces a blog and a weekly podcast on photography. He is also an expert printer, author of books and contributor to Craft & Vision's magazine Photograph (see below).

David DuChemin — http://davidduchemin.com — Another awesome photographer and author (out of Canada), and the inspiration and moving force behind Craft & Vision and its magazine Photograph. David writes a blog that provides a continual flow of inspiring and informative articles. His Study the Masters series is a favorite. And, like Martin, be sure to view his portfolio.

BackBlaze — https://secure.backblaze.com/r/010g66 — Backblaze is a great way to get all your files backed up automatically. It's easy. It's secure. And if you lose data for any reason, you will be glad you have Backblaze backing up all of your files on the cloud. I began using this recently after having to install a new hard drive. BackBlaze truly did back up my computer quickly and efficiently. My other well-known cloud back-up is still plugging away—weeks later. Try BackBlaze!

Square — https://squareup.com/i/3A28E9C3 — Another great service, but for processing credit card purchases by your customers. Use their Square swipe device on your smartphone or iPad. I find it quick and efficient. At the end of the day, Square automatically transfers your funds to your bank account. Much easier than another well-known credit card processing service.
