The best things about frogfish

I think it's safe to say that the long lure frogfish, Antennarius multiocellatus, is not classically beautiful. However, they have loads of character and are, I would argue, so comical in form and behaviour as to make them, well, cute.Although highly camouflaged ambush predators and very hard to spot, they are often surprisingly brightly coloured and chose oddly contrasting backgrounds on which sit and wait for their prey. They also can't swim very well, as their pectoral and ventral fins are... continue reading

Things I learn while shooting for stock - Part 1: out on the streets

I had joined group outings to shoot photos of people but that wasn't fruitful... continue reading

Things to see and do in Juneau, Alaska

   It was a cold morning; colder than I’ve ever experienced before. I was standing, waiting in line with a few members of my family (my parents and my brother-in-law) all of us ready, dressed for cold and with special footwear that goes over our boots to help us walk better up where we where headed. Today would be a day for new experiences, new adventures and new memories.The helicopter lands and we go in; the pilot runs his pre-flight check while telling us the safety instructions and... continue reading

What does 20 cents mean to you?

Having become an exclusive contributor for Dreamstime recently, I would earn 20 cents for every photograph uploaded. I have been asking myself what this amount means to me.For most of us, I suppose, 20 cents isn’t much.It isn’t enough to get us a set lunch, for example.             20 cents isn't enough for us to take public transport, such as a bus or a subway train.             20 cents can’t buy us some nice clothes.             ... continue reading
