What is a lesser photographer?
A person who makes images and is more interested in increasing their creativity than their street cred with other photographers. The phrase refers to what those other photographers may think of you, until they see your results.
So, what's the site about?
This site started as an experiment in early 2010: What would happen if a photography-obsessed nut sold off his 20+ years worth of collected cameras, lenses and post processing equipment, bought a simple, compact camera and relied solely on his creativity to produce better results?
That experiment led to the manifesto, A Lesser Photographer.
Since then, this site has become a haven for those seeking out information on the more important aspects of photography, without the filler news and reviews posted by seemingly every other photography blog in the universe. What's written about here matters, whether that means one post a week, or one a day. Your time is never wasted.
The articles come to your email, if you wish, in a weekly digest by signing up for the A Lesser Photographer newsletter.
Who runs the site?
The photography nut mentioned above, C.J. Chilvers. But, ultimately, it's the readers who run the site.
Why are there so few photos on the site?
The site is about your photos, not the photos of the guy running the site. That's what personal sites are for. Text is fast. Your time will not be wasted.
