Beside photography, my main hobby is mountaneering and climbing. If you have a hobby or a sport too, you should think about it as an opportunity to photograph while you do it what you love. Of course when you climb mountains, the main goal is to summit…but sometimes you just can’t. Because of the weather, because you injured, or like this time: because you are ill. Yes, I started early on Friday with a massive cold, I have headache, runny nose, sorethroat…and 700 km to drive through Austria... continue reading

Really excited to share my first sale experience with you friends. I uploaded five files around 15 days ago(from the sale) and all of them gets selected and I was lucky enough to got the attention of a buyer in this short span of time, and my image got sold in 8 credits($1.80). What surprise me more that I find myself motivated and energetic after my first sale and created few more illustrations/graphics for coming events, so I created graphics for 4th July celebration... continue reading
I've been thinking about my content and photo projects a lot recently. I'm usually pretty busy... I have a full time day job, a girlfriend, I shoot bands, and like everyone else, I'm swamped with a million little things.This is NOT a complaint. It just means I have to really work hard to make the effort for all the stock photo stuff in my life. You have to really want to do stock photography. It's rarely glamourous. It's often tedious. There's keywording, editing, time in lightroom, time spent... continue reading

Sometimes, being a photographer can be exhausting. We all push ourselves. Some mornings, it's worth being awake before anyone else... Sunrises and sunsets can be cliche or exotic.Look for the angle nobody else is shooting, carry a wide, a macro, and a telephoto at all times. To get this sunrise, I was walking though 300 yards of soft freshly plowed cotton field, my feet sank deep into the soft Mississippi soil with every step. As I was trying to get closer to the tree, I was running as best... continue reading
Several years ago, I used to sell my photography as prints.But the site I used is, long story short, dying.I put extra effort into promoting myself, upgraded my gear so I'd have an extra "edge" (I felt I had outgrown mine anyway), flew to Australia and pushed myself that extra mile in the field, but the stats kept plummeting and I became discouraged and demotivated. I tried signing up with other stock sites in the past, but they found every excuse to consistently reject my work time... continue reading
I just saw my first sale and while the pay is minuscule, my excitement is tremendous. The first sign that pursuing photography as more than just a fun hobby was when some of my photos were accepted. But actually selling an image? Wow! It's an incredible feeling. Now I want to get going with uploading more photos. continue reading
