Valuable content attracts a consistent audience but it performs better when paired with relevant images.84% of marketers are already using visuals in their marketing strategy, especially when it comes to social media. Tweets with visuals, for instance, are reportedly generating 150% more retweets and consequently more traffic than those who are based on just a text message.A Buzzsumo report also states that blog... continue reading

"Listen. What was that?"Having heard a strange bird call while out walking a few weeks back, I kept after the little bird until I spotted his spooky white eyes. I looked up this White-eyed Vireo and listened to the call a few times to commit it to memory for future reference. Listening and learning the songs and calls opens up entire new realms of birding. Often, you can’t get a clear look on the myriads of little birds flitting about the bushes, but if you listen, you can certainly... continue reading

Unique domain nameWhen you’re browsing online and stumble upon these two domains - myname.wordpress.com and myname.com - which one would you choose for a service or... continue reading
I think the passion for photography I got from my dad, who took pictures of us with a black and white camera.When I bought my first PC it came with the fever of editing.I tried different programs, but for me, love at first glance was Adobe Photoshop. I had to learn how to use it and it took me a while, but finally I succeeded.In April 2016 I watched a blog of a famous photographer in Romania. He was explaining people how to make money from edited pictures uploaded on Dreamstime.... continue reading
Ready, set, quit! Oh, if it were only that easy.Every year on the third Thursday in November, this year falling on the 16th, the American Cancer Society sponsors The Great American Smoke Out as a way to get people committed to living a tobacco free life.When the event first began in the early 1970’s, the message to smokers was to use a specific date to commit to quitting cold turkey.Since then, research has shown that a smoking addiction is an extremely tough one to break and... continue reading
It is so easy in this hectic world to forget to stop occasionally and look outside ourselves for ways to give our fellow man a hand up every now and then.Since 1992, the fourth Saturday of October has been set aside as a National Day of Service meant to encourage average Americans to commit this one-day out of their lives to helping others.Make a Difference Day will be observed on October 28th this year. And while service can be done by anyone at anytime, having... continue reading
I've been thinking about my content and photo projects a lot recently. I'm usually pretty busy... I have a full time day job, a girlfriend, I shoot bands, and like everyone else, I'm swamped with a million little things.This is NOT a complaint. It just means I have to really work hard to make the effort for all the stock photo stuff in my life. You have to really want to do stock photography. It's rarely glamourous. It's often tedious. There's keywording, editing, time in lightroom, time spent... continue reading

Why Your Content Calendar & Stock Image Portfolio Are Missing Outaka “Marketing for Obscure Holidays, Part 2”When the movie, Independence Day was released back in 1996 on the 2nd of July 2 (the same day the action in the film started), we all knew that the release date was in anticipation of the American Independence Day, the 4th of July, and that the title would probably have something to do with humanity’s independence from the threat of aliens, as a tie-in. However, did you... continue reading
I have been amazed by the fact that there are photographers with over 100,000 images on line. As a retired professional photographer who had a camera in his hand a minimum of 10 hours a day, I have avoided carrying it with me.This has led to a small amount of time in the field photographing.My new career has taken up most of my time.Put that together with unacceptable lighting conditions for most of my available time to photograph and it has given me a low total of images in review.I have... continue reading
