Working Together

As concepts go, ‘teamwork’ is a big seller.It may appear that images of business teams have been done to death.Not so: a great image of a group of two or more in an office environment working together in an authentic manner, will sell again and again.Styles in furniture and clothing change too so images must always be updated. Images of business teams that are downloaded the most, often feature a woman as lead or otherwise prominent person on the team. Trend research indicates that women... continue reading

Photography Education: Photo Clubs & Meetup

Although I've taken photos all my life, I can see that the key turning point, once I decided to focus on photography as a creative medium (in addition to writing) was making the effort to seek out advanced instruction from working photographers and photographic artists.Participating in local photography clubs or groups is also very instructive, and something I recommend to newer photographers as a way to improve their skills (and long-time photographers interested in passing on what they know)... continue reading

Good Design for Improved User Experience

There's nothing more frustrating to a user, in my experience, than logging onto a website or e-commerce platform with poorly executed design.When target pages are difficult to locate, the text overcrowds the images (or vice versa), and the color scheme distracts from the offerings or services on the page, the user frequently decides to leave, even if he/she wants what you had to offer.Good design should optimize, and then maximize, the user experience.Whether the design is simple or complex... continue reading

team work.. I wonder....

Business, business and again business

It was these days when i met Alena for the firs time. She helped me with this photo shoot by instantly switching the attention to herself and starting to play with the others in some sort of psychological games. I was left to shoot the guys and occasionally ask them to look into the lens.This photo shoot was taken at the beginning of September. These were the last warm days which I managed to spend efficiently, making a few good photo shoots. Here is one of them. continue reading
