Individual, recreational sports offer distraction from day to day stress and provide unlimited shooting opportunities. Engaging images of healthy activities and individuals competing with themselves to improve their skills and prowess are effective for a wide range of users of photography and illustration. A focused swimmer, bicyclist or climber evokes the notions of determination, success, failure, striving, achievement and health. Each of these words often accompanies a graphic in promotions, reviews... continue reading
Images of refreshing beverages, both alcoholic and otherwise are used for purposes as diverse as major ads and invitations to small parties. The virtues of drinking eight glasses of water daily may have come under scrutiny recently but no one argues with the importance of water and other healthy liquids in a sane diet. Images of fit individuals taking in a daily allotment of fluids are used in promotions for dietary supplements, health clubs, juices and bottled water as well as for editorial pieces... continue reading
Much is being made in the current U.S. presidential race about ads and emails that disparage the candidates with the use of innuendo and false accusations. The polls show that most Americans are opposed to such ads.In general, negative claims or images are not effective in any kind of advertising.

Cameras, if you’re reading this you probably have one, or two or three…And you might be wondering do I need another one?Last year I was wondering that too and decided to jump the gun and change things up a bit.

In fact it’s fantastic.Why?First of all, it’... continue reading
Friday, 9:06 AM -A fellow county employee called the shelter for help. Her brother had passed away about two months ago and his dog, Sweet Boy, was left at the property all alone. Other family members had been saying they would take him in, but 8 weeks later there he sat. She had been going daily to feed him but didn’t think it fair to sit at a vacant house.He was brought to the shelter on August 24, 2017. He certainly did live up to his name! He was a great dog. Perhaps he wasn’t as... continue reading
