JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 01.15.22

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Other photographers?





Please answer in the comments below. I listened to an interesting podcast this week where this was discussed.

And the two hosts, Jeffrey Saddoris and Sean Tucker, came at it from different places: Jeffrey is an artist, Sean is a photographer…who went to seminary school about 10 years years ago.

(I’ve been listening to them a lot lately, having just found their Deep Natter podcast. I’m catching up on past episodes, but man, these two are easy to listen to. Their voices are perfect for this, and their discussions are friendly and interesting. Check it out.)

I like to think that I pull from many different sources. Books, movies, even music lyrics.

But, I’m trying to expand that circle and include more.

Maybe cartoonists.



Tuba players.

Who are your sources of inspirations? I’d like to check them out.


This Week’s Links:

What I Read This Week: In addition to Ride The Pink Horse and Crime & Punishment, I’d dipping in and out of The Meaning in the Making from Sean Tucker and The Real Deal: Field Note from a Working Photographer from Joe McNally (I’m not in this one, sadly.)

What I Watched This Week: The Tender Bar. Affleck is great.  Also Landscapers on HBO Max. The story is interesting, but what’s really cool is that, during the end credits, they show BTS shots of how scenes were shot.

Listen: Joe McNally on the Photofocus Mind Your Own Business podcast, talking about his career, the Nikon Z9, and what makes a good photographer.

Watch/Listen: Sam Abell on Behind The Shot TV. Great interview.

Infographic: Social Media Trends for 2022

Wonderful Machine: What Is Humanitarian Photography? Written by my friend, Gary S. Chapman

Watch: Yesterday was Garry Winograd’s birthday. This PBS documentary, All Things Are Photographable, is free online until January 31, is a good watch.

PetaPixel: Become fluent in the visual language.

Austin Kleon: The Creative Seasons

Favorite Photo of the Week: Via Mark Coggins

RIP: Bob Saget
