Welcome Jessica Lum, Our New Co-Editor

portrait-jessIf you’ve been following PetaPixel since the blog was born back in May, you’ve probably noticed that the posting frequency has slowed down a bit during the past month or two as my graduate school coursework and research have picked up.

Today, I’m happy to announce that PetaPixel has a new co-editor to help share the load. Jessica Lum is a photojournalist, writer, and editor who has worked for the UCLA Daily Bruin and Los Angeles Metromix.

She graduated from UCLA with a degree in English and Geography/Environmental Science, and has shot assignments ranging from UCLA Bruin football games to a documentary project on HIV/AIDS in Thailand.

Jessica definitely shares my passion for photography, and I personally can’t wait to see her posts here on PetaPixel. Welcome!

As a side note, I’m going to be discontinuing the Links of the Day posts that we’ve been posting every morning on weekdays. We’re still going to be collecting and publishing the same awesome links, but they’ll simply be limited to our Twitter and Delicious accounts. If you enjoy the links we’ve been posting, then I encourage you to follow us on those services!

Update: The links of the day will also continue to appear in the right hand column of the blog as well.

Welcome to PetaPixel

This is the first post of what will hopefully be an exciting journey…

First, a little about myself. My name is Michael Zhang, and I’m an entrepreneur, photographer, and web developer. I have a computer science degree from UC Berkeley, and have been passionate about photography since I started taking photography seriously in high school.

I started this blog both to improve in photography and to pass on what I learn and have learned. PetaPixel will hopefully become the kind of blog I wish existed but never found on the web – a blog geared towards those who have mastered the basics of photography and camera work, but want to learn more and improve the quality of their photos.

Welcome aboard!
