Yes, that’s just the unicorn list, for laughs. Of course I know that not all shoot days will be quick and easy. And I know, I know, that there isn’t always the budget for full catering. However, this article is my opinion on what goes into a successful shoot. As a professional actor and model, I’ve... continue reading

Travelling trough animal kingdom , humans are the visitors.Do not feed the animals,You may think you’re doing something nice.The consequences can be tragic. Animals die as a result, and sometimes people do, too. But it also has the potential for causing major problems down the road for the next hiker or photographer who decides to keep their food for themselves. Allow animals free access to water sources by giving them the buffer space they need to feel secure. Ideally, camps should... continue reading
I'm tired of American Politics.You can't turn on the TV these days without politicians or their surrogates slinging mud at each other in very loud voices, and we still have 3 months until the election. The level of discourse in this country seems to reach a new low each day.But this has also made me think about the way we treat each other on social media.It seems that the animosity of the internet has given rise to a new social "norm" for how we speak with each... continue reading

How often have you looked at someone's work and thought you could do better? When I see something unique I admire the creator. Sometimes I attempt to spin the image into something different that reflects myself as the illustrator.Maybe it's the competitive spirit in me. For better or worse, I think there is value in reworking an image to be more unique or to provide extra value.However, sometimes in the stock world people will intentionally imitate an image down to the details. I guess the thought... continue reading
Animals are a great subject to photograph and have even started the turn to be a good stock photo as the world looks to be a greener planet.But please have some respect and don't touch them.Fawns when first born have two natural defenses, they have no scent, and they can hold perfectly still.But if you start moving them around the mother may reject them and they will die.Of course some animals being touched could be the last photo you take.Even little guys can be dangerous.... continue reading
The flag makes a nice picture with all the colors against a blue background, but I can't look at it without thinking how the symbol of the flag has changed meaning for me through the years.When I was in highschool I was Mr. Patriotic, then I joined the service and went to war. I have seen it flying high above the ships I was with. I saw it draped over coffins as the bodies were sent home. It was handed to me in a pretty box at my fathers funeral.Now my son has joined the service and is a pilot.... continue reading
I believe a lot of phtographers love the great nature shot when they see one. The problem is when you see a great shot, and get so involved in it that you forget this isn't a nice little puppy. This Iguana is a good example. I didn't have my telephoto on so I just eased myself down to take the photo. When the shot was taken the Iguans tried taking my hand off but hit my camera instead.After I gathered myself I thought twice about trying to get a few more photo's.I try to be respectful of animals... continue reading
