Photo News: PDN’s 30 announced – New contest for emerging wedding photogs – Larry Fink launches blog – Future of Photobooks continues

Posted by liveBooks

Photo District News has announced its 30 new and emerging photographers to watch for 2010. Check out their gallery for a images and interviews with a wide range of photographers, including a few names you’ve probably heard and several that are brand new — at least to us.

liveBooks also announced its own contest for emerging wedding photographers on Monday at WPPI in Las Vegas. The emerge Photo Competition will judge photographers on their ability to tell a story through images by asking them to upload a series of portfolios to a site for the judges. Winners will receive a prize package complete with everything to take a wedding photography business to the next level, with goodies from, Sony, LabPrints, Asuka Book, ShootQ, Rangefinder, Pictage, Think Tank, and liveBooks.

We found out from Andrew Hetherington this week that legendary photographer Larry Fink has started his own blog. It includes rarely seen images from his archives along with meditations from the man himself (although it’s run by his studio manager). New York-based photographer Robert Caplin also launched a new blog this week, The Photo Brigade. It showcases the work of talented freelance photographers and is sure to be a top destination for editors very soon.

We were also happy to see that the discussion we started with our Future of Photobooks project, a collaboration with FlakPhoto, is being continued by photographer/blogger Shawn Records on too much chocolate. Check out his interviews with Jason Fulford and Alec Soth about moving from photography towards publishing. His talk with Richard Renaldi will be posted next week.
