The Sheep, and we Twitter Sheep can follow these 10 great photographers!

Aren’t these some cool-lookin’ sheep? I was driving through the countryside of Iceland and there are these super-bushy sheep that float around the fields with their busy little legs underneath. Then, from a distance, I saw these mega-bushy fellas all piled up on top of one another. They were quite far away, so I attached my 70-200 mm lens to get a tighter shot at f5.6. I had to make a wide variety of strange animal noises to get that guy on top to look at me. Luckily, I was alone with the sheep. That sounds funny.

Besides that, I have a hot new Twitter list for you below!

Here is my Previous 10 Photographers to Follow on Twitter list… and here is the latest one below! If you have more photographer suggestions, send me a note TreyRatcliff – thanks!

1) @jimgoldstein – Jim Goldstein – a cool photographer with a nice eye for things. He is also quite active on Twitter.
2) @MoosePeterson – Moose Peterson is one of those guys that has a cool name and can back it up!
3) @frederickvan – Frederick Van is one of the hosts of the cool This Week in Photography podcasts. He’s also a very nice guy with a hearty laugh… you can sometimes tell a lot about a guy from his laugh.
4) @aphotoeditor – Steve Simon recommended that I follow him… all kinds of cool links posted on a regular basis
5) @nickonken – Nick Onken is a cool guy with a unique look about his work. He also finds cool links to share with his followers.

10) @RobertEvans – Robert Evans is a different sort of guy, and those are the kind I usually like. He describes himself on Twitter as “Inspiration, Education, and Motivation for Photographers” – that says it pretty well!

  • Hi Trey

    This is not a comment, per se – but I couldn’t find a contact page so I’m being bold and brazen and using this space to tell you about…

    Earth Mosaic.

    This is a project dreamed up by a small group of friends in Cape Town, South Africa, hoping to create something a bit special.

    Earth Mosaic is a photo project – anyone with a camera, who will be on Earth on 22 April, is invited to take a photo & upload it to the Earth Mosaic website ( ) – all submitted images will be used to make a giant mosaic of the world map.

    For the whole story please check out the website. We are on Twitter – follow @earthmosaic – and have a flickr group & a facebook group.

    We’d be delighted if you would consider punting this project on your blog as we want to reach as many people as possible and you have a massive readership! – and, we only have one week left!

    Joy & the Earth Mosaic team.
