"Welcome to the untold story--the black box--of commercial photography.
If you’ve ever seen/heard one of my speaking engagements, you’ve probably heard me talk about the Black Box. It’s the name I’ve given to “what the world of advertising photography looks like to a new or aspiring photographer.” Something goes it one end of the box (the request, the pitch, the job offer, etc) and something comes out the other end (finished images, photog getting paid, satisfied client, etc). And what happens in between is a total and complete mystery to most. Only the people who are operating in the industry, within this Black Box, know what goes on inside."

Zack Arias uses his blog as both a place where he'll post very useful resources/guides/tutorials as well as place simply to share his recent work. In my opinion, even his more "personal" posts are thought provoking and worth checking out, but if you want to strictly focus on "traditional educational material", you can do so by navigating along the various "categories" in the sidebar (ones such as "Critique", "Resources", "Philosophy", "Technique" etc. ...really, go through the archives under those categories, there's some seriously great content).

"Since its historic beginnings in the golden age of American photojournalism, the Black Star photographic agency has been committed to mentoring both its photographers and its clients.
Black Star Rising is an attempt to extend this ethos of teaching — and caring — to a broader audience.
This is a group blog featuring articles to educate professional photographers, aspiring pros, and photography buyers alike. Our stories offer advice and viewpoints on the art and business of photography, based on the personal experiences of our contributors. We give our bloggers the freedom to write about issues of interest to them. All we ask is that blog contributions address substantive issues, be at least 500 words in length, and be written from a first-person perspective.
Black Star Rising articles are not intended as one-way communication, but as the beginning of an ongoing dialogue with those who come to our site. In fact, we often publish guest posts by readers inspired by a regular contributor’s post. We encourage this kind of unfettered give and take."

"The coolest blog on the Internet for photography enthusiasts! Photo and camera industry news."
Here’s the challenge in our industry. Everything is so segmented. There are some great programs going on, but you might not know about them. There are some incredible videos with amazing educational value, but more than likely you never saw them. There are photographers, filmmakers and manufacturers who you should have in your network, but you’ve never met them. In the end they all make up an invaluable resource to helping you build your skill set and marketing, but you’re already being bombarded with mailings and might not know where to go next.
So, while we know that one site can’t provide you with everything, we’re going to do our best to give you “one stop shopping”. Our goal is to create one hub that you can visit every morning and learn one thing new, meet one more photographer you should know and plan for an upcoming workshop you might never have heard about.
