Mirrorless Q&A: About the Blog

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

One of the differences between these Q&A posts and the Staver/Farace podcasts is that Barry and I answer questions about photography from the readers of this blog, while many of the Mirrorless Q&A posts are about the blog itself. And so, I’ll make it official: From now on, all technical questions about mirrorless photography will be answered in the podcasts and blog-oriented questions will be answered via Digital Q&A posts. Which brings me to:

Q: Why don’t you do more podcasts?

A: Both Barry and I are busy guys, so getting our schedules together is challenging. Barry is even busier than I am and he does all the hard work of recording and editing. We do as many as we can and plan to do more as time permits.

Q: Why don’t you do more Mirrorless Q&A posts?

A: It’s all my fault. But I’ll try to do one a month starting today.

Q: Why don’t you have posts on the weekends.

A: Did I mention that I’m busy guy. In addition to writing and editing this blog, I write five posts a week for my personal blog, Saving the World, One Pixel @ a Time. And if you have the time please visit it. While it’s not exclusively a mirrorless blog, some are about mirrorless cameras and many of the posts apply to mirrorless cameras as well as the DSLRs. 

In addition, I try (but am not always successful) to write two posts a week for my car photography blog, JoeFaraceShootsCars.com and two a week for my boutique-sized boudoir photography business. But my main gig is the stories and reviews I write for Shutterbug magazine and their website. In fact, I am in the middle of shooting for and writing two lens reviews and an article for Shutterbug’s website along with my monthly column for the print magazine.

Q: What’s the update on the Fundraiser?

A: Right now we are at 93% of our goal. I will issue a final report (and end the fundraiser) on Thanksgiving.

Q: Anything else new?

A: I would like to plug something I do each holiday season: From today until December 15’th I’ll be doing face-to-face portfolio/website reviews and critiques for photographers located in the Denver and Colorado Springs areas with $45 fee going directly to a charity.
