One of my favourite photos:It’s an unfinished marble statue of a nude female torso, standing outdoors near the waterfront in Naxos, a Cycladic Greek Island.It’s particularly pleasing to me for many reasons, and not because it just sold for the 4th time.It’s an astonishing work of art in this unfinished state. Maybe the sculptor had a fight with his model, went home for a souvlaki and coffee, and never came back. Whatever, I’m glad he didn’t.It also reminds me of holidaying on Naxos, one... continue reading

Farming is a way of life in the rural mid west of the United States and its a very special, but also demanding time with the farmers being out in the fields all day and sometimes even all night to get their acres of corn, soybeans, or any other crop out of the ground. Capturing these farmers in there element working makes for a great stock picture whether it is for a farm magazine, agricultural blog, or even a cooking article describing where your food comes from, designers and companies from all... continue reading

Dear Dreamstimers,I would like to share my experience with new full frame flaghsip from Nikon, model D850. To be honest, full frame isn't my "weapon of choice" due to its price level, weight and size - and it counts lenses also. As almost everyday user of APS-C format DSLR and occasional user of Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras i was of course curious where full format is heading. I mentioned tough battle between APS-C and Micro Four Thirds in my previous blog about new mirrorless flagship... continue reading

I have recently renewed my love of photography, which started when I was a student studying zoology, geology and botany in New Zealand a very long time ago! Using print film was fun but expensive. Like all kiwi graduates, I went travelling and ended up in Sydney, working in the corporate world for many years, photographing holidays but not much else. Then motherhood intervened...Last year I got the use of an iPhone6 for several months, and found how easy it was to take many images and select just... continue reading
In times past i've bought older technology because it was at a more reasonable price.Way back when I was young and single it was never the issue; but family costs come first. I started my DSLR and stock photography images using a Canon 400D which I purchased at a very reasonable price..This Canon gave me an introduction to DSLR and I enjoyed using it. I wanted something a bit more up to date and managed to get a store demo model of a Panasonic G6(before the G7); again at a very reasonable... continue reading

I just wanted to say hi everyone. I'm quite new to this whole stock photo thing but I'm looking to hit it running.I've always enjoyed taking photos; one of my proud moments was buying my first 35mm SLR. Not log after that; in the late 90's; I got my first digital camera, a 1.33MP Casio. I thought it was fantastic that I could take an image; then review and delete if no good.. Though I remember that the 4xAA batteries did not last more that 100 images.Since then I had many point and shoot cameras... continue reading
