Minimal Photography is Catching On

Yesterday, I visited my friend Patrick Rhone and we discussed all kinds of geeky issues over lunch, including photography. After lunch, he published a few great posts to Minimal Mac on lesser photography.

There’s no doubt Patrick gets it. And he’s not alone.

Over the past few weeks, there’s been fewer posts on this site, because I’ve been hard at work on a book encapsulating all of the principles this site has covered in the past year and a half and then some. The book’s first draft is 95% complete and after meeting with Patrick, I came away with a number of new ideas on how to make the final version as fun to read as it was to write.

In the last week, a famous photographer, with hundreds of thousands of readers, has been hot on my heels, publishing very similar posts to what has appeared on this site; too similar. While this bothered me and really lit a fire under my…self to complete the book; the truth is, there’s no substitute for the actual experience of putting this philosophy to the test. Competition is always good and the more we can turn people on to this way of thinking, the better.

If you want to read blogs and books from photographers who really get it and publish on topics we believe in, follow these incredibly smart photographers:
