On my main work, I'm sofware engineer in test, in other words I write programs to test different systems. It means, I'm used with automatization and don't really like to do a lot of work by hands. So, to the stock photos.First I take my camera and used as it should be used - take pictures. It's hands work, but it's amazing and exciting.

Hello!I'm now 25 years old and half of my life (since 12) I'm with camera in hands.

It turned out that things are not so simple: some photos are not needed, some - require... continue reading

I have been scouring the blogs lately and I have seen a certain wall between professional photographers and amateur photographers. I have read the arguments that anyone with a digital camera can now snap a decent shot and upload "stock" photos and essentially dilute the stock photo pool so to speak. It is assumed that people who do not have an education in photography or expensive camera equipment are hurting this industry in some way.I have spent countless hours pondering this and asking myself... continue reading
