You guys are going to want to keep a close eye on the blog these next couple weeks, we have a lot of very cool, fun, and informative stuff coming. (Contests too!) A big thank you to Brock Martin, the worlds best blog programmer in the world for the new “Michael’s Bag” section, which breaks my gear down into categories, complete with thumbnails, hyperlinks as well as my personal thoughts on each piece of gear. We have been working on it for some time now, and we have several more categories and lenses to add, and I have many, many comments to still fill out. Should be close to finished in the next couple days. For now, this is how you can find the section:

I’d also like to thank my friends over at for their input and feedback. One of their consultants brought something to my attention: I know a lot about all these pieces of equipment and gear and this is valuable info for those who are considering purchasing each. I hadn’t thought of it, but it is true, so I am trying to include the best advice I can regarding each individual item.

Something else you will notice is that the blog itself is getting a very subtle facelift. We have some other minor buttons, and changes coming keep an eye out for them.

We also have a major product launch coming in the next 1-2 months. I haven’t even mentioned it anywhere until now, it is a brand new product and it is software (not a mobile device app either). There is nothing else on the market like it and will help all photographers to both save time as well as make more money. I think you guys will love it.
