Be The Best "You"

Getting exposure as a photographer — and making sales — is all about standing out in the crowd.But, in Dreamstime especially, that crowd is VERY, very large. So how do you stand out?It's all about exploiting your unique skills and opportunities. For example, during a fishing trip in Nunavut, Canada, I took a very basic landscape photo of the Arctic Tundra. I have since sold this image on Dreamstime several times over, and will no doubt continue to see revenue from it into the future.... continue reading

Missed Opportunity

Boy Did we blow it, Yesterday at around 4:00pm there was a train derailment less than ½ mile from our house.My first instinct was to grab the cameras and run to snap a few photos (though my dear hubby was a little more cautious).But we were almost instantly told to evacuate.So we jumped in the motor home and headed to the state park for the night.Today theyevacuateda few people a little closer to the site but we were allowed to come home. But still can not get close enough for photos.... continue reading

Religious festivals are photo opportunities

Religious festivals of all kinds are excellent opportunites to capture images for both stock and editorial use. They are usuallypublic events with a strong community feel, involving music, processions and ceremonies of various kinds.For Christians, especially Catholics all over the world, one of the most colourful is the Feast of Corpus Christi. The celebrationsinvolve music, a procession and in some places the laying of elaborate flower carpets to mark out a route for the procession. These... continue reading

Enjoying both worlds

I am not a professional photographer. Unfortunately Israel isn't very hospitable to those who wish to make a living out of photography (or perhaps I wasn't cut out of the same material that great tough photographers are made of...). So what can one do? how can you combine a practical career and the joy of photography?At first look, it seems impossible, since photography demands time and attention. there is a vast investment in truly great photos.In my previous post I spoke about simplicity.... continue reading

Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Salmon Arm, British Columbia is a beautiful area of Canada to visit.About halfway between Banff and Vancouver it sits on the edge of Shuswap Lake, an enormous lake that supports dozens of summer activities.The area is nestled in a ring of mountains that provide wonderful photo opportunities all year long.Luckily I have family there and get to visit frequently at various time of the year. continue reading

Opportunity knocks but once...

One of the things I like most about stock photography is that it encourages me to consider any subject that I might not otherwise consider.I had some engine trouble last week, and rather than being worried about the actual problem my first thought was to grab a picture before the engine light turned off! continue reading

Opportunities in Denver?

Next week, I will have the chance to spend a couple days in and around Denver.I don't know the city at all, but I hope to change that, and of course I'll have my camera around my neck.I've checked out the available shots of Denver, and have found some beautiful images (see above and below, and there are plenty more.As always, though, I want to go beyond what's already been done.Any Denverites here with ideas on photo opportunities?I'll have plenty of time and a car, so locations... continue reading
