So here is my first India photo that has been accepted!This was one of those shots, where I was just hanging around looking through my RX100's screen checking out the scene. I didn't know what was happening in the inner sanctum of the temple and just as I was snapping off a few rounds the priest exits with a bucket full... continue reading
If you're thinking of giving photojournalism a try, I say go ahead and do it!Some of the benefits to covering an event as a credentialed photographer include being allowed to even have a camera at events where the general public may not be able to bring one in, being invited into press only sessions where you can get closer to the subject for better pictures, and getting into events free that others have to pay for-always nice considering how much (or little?) many of us make in stock photography.... continue reading

Becoming stuck is one of the biggest challenges stock-photographers face. To remain creative and inspired you have to be doing something. It's always nice to have a portfolio of ideas to fall back on. Sometimes something as simple as doodling on paper, filling in a crossword or even going for a long walk can give you ideas. These are ideas you want to capture for future review and planning.If you were to sit inside my office you would see almost every surface covered with sheets of paper in differing... continue reading
