Posted on Sep 14, 2010 in The Photography

I was hired recently to be a correspondent for a new photography site, www.Pixiq.com which is still in Beta.  I’ll be writing in both places, and not necessarily the same thing, though to start things off I’ll be pulling the “best of Beckerman” to put on the Pixiq site.
