As I am well educated in my field already and my education has not helped me in my current trade market, I was considering doing something... continue reading

Six Years Microstocking

Three years ago, I was posting "3 Years Microstocking" by discussing about the changing market of (micro)stock photography. Have there been significant changes ever since?The end of year is often an excellent time to look back and think about what has happened, this time, in the still rapidly growing area, micro stock photography.When the big picture was extremely busy and crowded three years ago, it is somewhat clearer today in terms of who is still in the market; but, it might be not... continue reading

Marketers want two things: Good Photos and Affiliate Money

In March 2011 I published the first issue of Alberta Marketing Strategy Magazine. It is a short run (25,000 print copies) B2B print and web publication.The image in this article was used for the composite to show clients. When the client who was to be put on the cover saw this photograph he suggested that we just run with him - but he was only joking of course. Still, the advertisers loved this photograph. In Canada a guy like this fits the stereotype for a guy who knows how to get things done... continue reading

Here's a short but true story of how online socializing can work to your advantage financially speaking. Fame is only a few clicks away.A regular Dreamstime image got to be virally famous, when filmmaker, actor and recently author, Albert Brooks tweeted yesterday:Here it is baby. Delete this DM the second you get it. I don't want anyone else to know http://ow.ly/5dlxj.It's perhaps a simple joke but one that got retweeted by hundreds of people (Albert currently has more... continue reading

Celebrating the Farmer's Market

It's time for the Farmer's Market. One of my favorite places to photograph, I always look for a local outdoor market when I'm traveling. And when I'm home - you'll find me at the Santa Fe Farmer's Market from the end of May through the end of October. With artfully displayed local produce, lively conversation and wandering musicians, the market is a great place to capture microstock images ... and people watch!Quotes of the day:"Did you ever stop to taste a carrot? Not just eat it, but taste... continue reading
