Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everyone! Oh, you don’t know? It may be September, but in stock photography world, it’s Christmas already. Let me explain.We all know that uploading seasonal photos can provide a nice, recurring, steady income if done right. Right? Well, probably the most important part of doing it right is timing.Two things to consider regarding timing: 1. (For photographers) time needed to get noticed and 2. (For buyers) time needed for clients who notice... continue reading

Hi DT'ersI, like many others have recently been making a significant effort to improve my downloads.There doesn't seem to be an one size fits all answer, but effort in does equal reward out, as with most things in life that are worth doing.A friend and I often plan a morning on a weekend to go to a particular location and get some shots for stock and for pleasure (theres a difference it seems).We typically end up with 10-20 good shots that look great on a website generic nice photos, but... continue reading
Here we are, middle of the summer and my social circles are just bursting with pups everywhere. On top of this we have one of the warmest summers in ages, with just enough clouds to give an interesting background as well as blur the light very now and then. So what do I do in all of this? I lie at home knocked out completely. Such a perfect time for my health to be unhealthy...I've barely been able to leave the house and lawn for two weeks, with great inconvenience for my dogs I might add... But... continue reading
In many cases, being in the right place at the right time means capturing a great image to missing out.It also means you need to have your camera with you more than not.This image was taken on a walk around White Memorial in Litchfield Connecticut.Many times i will walk around and not take any pictures but in this case the timing was perfect.I caught the two Kayakers mid stroke as they are navigating around this river through a wetlands.As it turns out there were two additional... continue reading
They say timing is everything and that is certainly the case of this shot of the Batmobile I took recently at the Six Flag's New England amusement park.One view one sale!The opening of the latest Batman movie "Batman The Dark Knight Rises" this coming weekend certainly had to be a factor behind this sale.The Batmobile is on display in the parks Justice League area with DC Comics themed roller coasters and interactive area with costumed figures.Unfortunately the Superman based Bizaro rollercoaster... continue reading
I wrote about some of my plans for a visit to Budapest a couple of weeks ago and was happy to see that 11 out of my 12 images were accepted over the last few days.I do not get out in the cit and shoot architecture very often as I live in the middle of nowhere but did learn some new things and also got a chance to put my new toy into action!TimingBudapest is a beautiful city day or night but as in all cities it does have its ugly side, at night it is dealt with by dramatically lighting the... continue reading
I'm just asking myself when buyers do buy images, how many days or months in advance.For example: do they get pictures with summer-content in springtime? Or far earlier? Winter-images in summer?Is there anybody out there who can explain that to me?Thanks to all of you! continue reading
Ever wondered why most tourists make crappy pictures? There’s loads of reasons, like lack of experience, lack of photographic talent and so on. One reason in particular I would like to address here, and that is timing.Tourists are bad timers. They arrive at a location in the holiday season, when the location is packed with tourists and the harsh light blows out the skies on many holiday pictures. Why can’t they just wait ‘till the light is better and all the tourists are gone? Simple, they... continue reading
