Here is a fellow photojournalist, Francis Hawkin’s blog, where his work and planning of shoots can be viewed. This is another blog that I instantly liked through the layout and simplistic nature of his page. His image quality is seen throughout his work, varying from different styles of photography is a good model for the skills needed to become a successful photojournalist and photographer.

Chloe Ingram’s Blog

What I love about Chloe’s blog is the simplistic layout and and overall design of her page. By using plain colours with opposite text colours allows her viewpoints and titles to stand of the page and catch the audiences attention. Using an unlimited scroll layout allows the audience to easily scroll through her work with the pace and control given to the viewers. This doesn’t allow her blog to appear to packed with information and doesn’t give the initial feel that the page is too packed when posts.

Here is Mike Kane’s photography blog with his portfolio available as well. His blog has really helped me with my work as his decription and explanation with each post and photo-story is detailed and very helpful to understand the thought processes behind his work. His images are great examples of professionl documentary and photojournalist styled images that inform the viewers of the story backing them up.

A blog created with ‘The New York Times’ posting on stories and news events covered by them.

The blog shows whats been most popular and gives the viewers the opportunity to see whats been printed in each days papers. The blog offers photographs and video for the visual journalism side to their posts.

Very helpful blog to see news images each day and to read the write ups alongside them.
