Rules are meant to be broken:Its often considered an unwritten rule that photography locations are best shot during certain times of the day i.e golden hour or blue hour (in layman's terms, couple of hours before sunrise or sunset, or an hour after sunset, respectively).The truth is photography locations, while they put on their tuxedos and look their dandiest at those times of day, still offer something more in the not so popular times of the day, like 12 pm in the heat of the boiling... continue reading

As photographers, we all know that the sunrise action happens during a short period of time when the sun comes up. During the daylight hours, we scout what we think will be great locations. The next step being the early rise out of bed in the morning. Seems pretty simple, right?Well, if these locations are in a natural setting, there's a number of common sense items you should consider beyond camera settings and all the money you'll make off your images...Pack a flashlight! You scouted the... continue reading
Last month and this month I have been playing around with some design ideas and came up with taking a few pictures of different rivers and editing them to look like something you would see out of a fairy tale, like bright pinks and purple colors that give the image an enchanted feel.Pictures out of the ordinary can sometimes be very appealing to a buyer or a designer because its one of a kind, for example its very easy to go out and take a picture of a plain old river, but taking a picture of a river... continue reading
Some of most successful stock photographers shoot exclusively with models. Photos with people tend to sell well, so if you haven't ventured into portraiture yet, maybe it's time you give it a try. But how and where can you find the models? Here's a few tips you can try. 1. Do it yourselfA lot of photographers found their first model from the bathroom mirror. While posing for yourself can be a little tricky and requires usually some trial-and-error, it can be made easier with some accessories... continue reading
Having pictures that go together in your portfolio can transition to more sales for the simple fact of if designers like the one photo they may want the other for there project which means more sales for you. Sometimes taking photos of the same objects at different angles isn't enough, sometimes it may be wise to consider adding another prop to the picture.Pictures at there simplest form can be even considered valuable, like a plain old napkin with the words I love you on it can appeal to buyers... continue reading
I just sold my first two images. I only have 76 images in the portfolio but it helps to be in the right place at the right time. I know from past experience that a dynamic title, description, and keywords also play a big role in getting selected. In my last job before retirement I sold ads in the Yellow pages. We were always looking for pictures to fit in the content of the ad. If you can still remember the Yellow pages there were hundreds of categories running from a... continue reading

“Gage” was a friendly boy that was picked up by a Walton County Animal Control officer on June 27, 2018. Unfortunately he had no tag or microchip to find his way home and was brought to the animal shelter.“Gage” had a wonderful, happy personality; a cute kind of goofiness. Goofy “Gage” kept leaning up against my legs and nudging his nose under my hand looking for some petting! It was that goofy look with his tongue sticking out that got him noticed and adopted within just a few days!... continue reading
“Jack” was a 4-month-old Beagle and Terrier mixed puppy that was surrendered to the animal shelter by his owner on June 28, 2018. They had surrendered two of his littermates earlier in the summer, but thought they’d keep him. Well, when it “just wasn’t working out”, the shelter had to find a home for “Jack” too. No problem. A super-cute pup like “Jack” just might find a better life elsewhere anyway!Besides being irresistibly cute, he was one-hundred-percent “I wanna play with... continue reading
“Reggie” and I had to get out early this morning! I love the beautiful warm days, but summertime poses a challenge to the animal shelter photography. Summer means longer daylight hours. This computes out to higher animal intake and fewer shady hours to photograph them.Springtime triggers most animals to come in season and begin breeding. That means a bunch more animals to photograph than we experience in the winter. We call it "kitten and puppy season". This, coupled with the longer... continue reading
