New for 2009: Photoshop Interviews


Lately, many sites have been coming out with series of photographer interviews to help share the work and inspiration of our creative fellows with the larger photographic community. From Crash Taylor to Canon Blogger to Dave Cross’ “Finish the Sentence.” And I think it’s great! In some small way, I like to think that my “P&P Blogger Profiles” had something to do with this new dialogue, but I doubt it.

As I look around at these sites and take in all of the tremendous insights and experience of the featured guest, I notice that Photoshop and post-processing as a whole is only a small part of the discussion. It’s true that these days it’s almost impossible to talk about photography without talking about what happens in post. But there hasn’t been much of a forum for talking about Photoshop’s place in culture or to hope and dream, or gripe, about one of our favorite pieces of software.

That’s about to change. On the second Monday of each month, starting next Monday, we will feature a new interview with a member of the Photoshop community.

I’ve already got a “Who’s Who” of interviewees lined up including Adobe’s Project Manager for Photoshop John Nack, NAPP Executive Director Larry Becker, Adobe Creative Systems Engineer Mike McHugh, African Safari leader Andy Biggs, and photowalker extrodinaire Jeff Revell. And I’m waiting for confirmation from a number of others.

As this will be an on-going series, I am always open to suggestions for new subjects to interview. If you have any ideas, please let me know so I can make contact and secure them as an upcoming guest.

Please be sure to stop back on Monday for my interview with Adobe’s own John Nack!

  • Seems like a natural evolution of your previous interviews. I’m sure it will be well received.

  • In some small way? Are you kidding me? The P&P has become legendary and pretty much a “must-hit” for such a wide audience. It’s how I found my legs to walk and grow, so the thanks (I keep having to tell him this all, don’t know why he keeps thanking me…) really should be coming from my end. In any case, you’ve got a lot of great new series to look forward too. Sorry I’ve not been as active in recent days, but you’ll find out why today! (Thursday…)
