Great article about the power of photography to build a sense of community. Thanks, Chuck Reese.
Happy Earth Day…
Hug your local farmer.
I first met Sarah McCamman at our local farmers market. Then I shadowed her for a few days to document her work at Heavy Dirt Farm in Davis, CA. Now, when my CSA box arrives on my front porch every Tuesday, I know exactly where the carrots and kale and parsnips come from. To me, that’s the essence of Earth Day. (See the photo-essay at www.joancusick.com.)
Have you hugged your farmer today?
Mercury Cleaners has to move, so I photographed their sign for my #Sacramento neon project.
I’ve compiled a list of 35 vintage neon signs in the city, and every time I look at the newspaper, it seems another one is in danger. Luckily, local nonprofits are working with the Center for Sacramento History to store and preserve at-risk signs. I can’t wait to do my part to preserve part of the city’s history.
Free photo ebook documents the art gallery’s final days as it makes room for the Sacramento Kings’ downtown arena.

Dear Good Morning America,
I just watched your segment “Bride on a Budget,” during which ABC’s very own Ginger Zee gave listeners money-saving tips courtesy of her very own wedding coordinator…
Rethink your wedding photographer. “The best thing to do is contact your local school — find somebody that wants to build a career with their skills,” Bilotto said. “Nine out of 10 you’ll save $8,000 just paying for the cost of their camera, their developing and their time. You’ve made a college kid happy and you’ve got some great photos.
Shame on Good Morning America for sharing this insulting cost-cutting tip. (And what about that cost of developing?) Yay for PetaPixel for standing up for professional photographers!
