Tomorrow I am going to my first ever proper photography event. The local birds of prey centre has photography days every now and then, and I am going to one.The reason I am going is because my camera-related behaviour has led my family to view me as a cause for concern. It’s the school summer holidays in England at present, which means that it has been raining quite a bit. This, alongside my attempts to keep my son from permanently attaching himself to things with screens, has rather limited... continue reading

As the buds on the trees come out here in BC which is unreal having just recently moved from Quebec where the snow is still falling the animals come out and become more active. I set out to capture the amazing hummingbirds. I have gone from shooting with available light to shooting with the use of a fill flash. Because of the ever changing weather up here near the mountains you never know what you are going to get!What have you been doing to get ready for spring?I'm... continue reading
I offer my clients a discount on photo shoots if they will sign a model release for me.I sure am glad this mom signed a release, because I got so many cute shots of this child.We did his formal shoot in normal clothing and then she put this cowboy hat and shirt on him and I took some candid shots of him.He was having so much fun.Here he is pointing to a squirrel he sees in the distance. Here he found a piece of bark laying on the ground that looked like a gun and he picked it up... continue reading

Since I was little girl, my parents took my sister and I on regular camping trips to the Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Province, South Africa. My dad volunteered as a ranger, which meant that he had to be on duty every other weekend to make sure that all the guests visiting the national park were behaving accordingly. Alas, this was not always the case... People were often found wondering outside their vehicles in areas where this was – and still is – prohibited! This basically means... continue reading
I like to shoot outside. To my mind it's much more intresting than studio work. But I have some doubts: is it good for stock? Then I desided to look at microstock top selling images and I can say that there are a lot of images made outdoors, on location, at the beach, in park or forest and so on...Just a simple exampleBest image at DT for keyword "outdoors" has nearly 2 times more sales than for search "studio"Now why I like shooting outside?1.
