Backstory

A brief History of PhotoCiné News

In 2010 Michael Britt and Lou Lesko started the PhotoCine News blog and created the PhotoCine Expo, the first definitive resources for DSLR filmmakers.

In 2013 they went on hiatus after one of them threw a tantrum at a party for the Royal Family in London because the venue didn't allow cowboy boots. Now that the legal bills have been paid, they're back with more attitude and irreverence.

What's This Fabulous Newsletter Cost

Published twice a month, PhotoCiné News isn't your run of the mill newsletter. We eschew product announcements and news rehashes in favor intelligent analysis of what's happening in the visual arts.

PhotoCine News is free for as long as we can talk advertisers like Blinkbid into sponsoring it. That's where you come in. If you like what we do, spread the word. The more subscribers, the greater the resources, and the more in-depth we can get with our content.
