So you’re thinking of submitting videos for stock, or have already been doing so but would like a few pointers? The good news is that you don’t need an expensive digital SLR or dedicated video camera. These days, even a good mobile phone will record up to 4K video and allow you to shoot some stunning video footage. As a video reviewer, I’d like to share a few tips which will help you in terms of having your videos accepted rather than refused. One of the most common refusal reasons I... continue reading
It is well known that performance sports begin at an early age.But what about photography?I ask you this because of my recent experience with my children.Concerned about the fact that my daughters (like most children today) want to use the smartphones and tablets as much as possible for simplistic games that consume time and generate frustration, I have decided together with them that I will allow them to use the devices from time to time only if they take a few photos before.Then I asked them to... continue reading
Whether our passion is portrait, landscape, abstract, or stock photography, we photographers certainly appreciate our little pocket-sized friends, namely our smartphones, which have become very powerful photographic and videographic tools, and are making a leap forward with every new addition to the market.It’s no surprise, then, that Apple’s newest iPhone alleges to have much improved photographic capabilities.The new iPhone 8 release is scheduled for a September 12th launch event and... continue reading

I'm starting to upload some images took with my phone during my travels or journeys... surprisingly found a million pictures laying in my phone camera roll that could be of stock interest.So, I tried with one of them that is the entrance of a themepark in Sicily, and put as editorial. And here it is: it was not postproduced in any way, simply as clear as it came. No color correction and no effects added on it. Simply the shot! And I have a million more on my Cloud space where to pick... continue reading
I periodically work as a full-time photographer, and periodically as an IT consultant. However, when working as a consultant, I don't always carry my photography gear with me. And that's why I love my iPhone! Together with some good (read great) photo apps (such as ProCamera and NightCap Pro) and some "extensions" such as the OlloClip Case and lenses, I can capture some great pictures when I see them. Such as the one below, which is a street in Brussels, during the early morning hours, right before... continue reading
2014 was not a year I would remember as to be called a good one much as in all the difficult situations we can find a positive learning process as it happened to our friend Bart Dierickx. You may read his recent post. A serious health problem (for the time being I am ok) kept me concerned enough to contemplate life as from day to day and eventually my work at DT was equally affected. I decided to sell all my gear and just shoot with my mobile phone as what I understand as a sign of psychological intimidation.... continue reading
