Finding great shots while on the road, for me, used to mean finding great shots while hanging off the side of a road. My photography manta has often been “anything to get a great shot.” I keep a pair of rubber boots in my trunk just in case I end up in a place I might need them for a photograph; I’ve had friends hold my feet while trying to get the right angle for a photo (be careful!); and I’ve been nearly arrested for trespassing (don’t recommend this one, Dreamstimers... continue reading

I collect business cards as a hobby. My friend, another photographer, got me started on this a long time ago and it’s been useful in so many ways.Not only do I have a long list of contacts, but I have hundreds of great examples to show students when I teach marketing and building a brand.Some business cards are amazing. You can tell the effort that goes into them, some are ok and some you have to wonder what they were thinking. I’m specifically looking at one guy I went to university with who... continue reading
(This is the #1 result for "big fish in a small pond." But it's a shark. How could you benefit from creating concepts?)Can I let you in on a dirty little secret?A lot of designers out there don't want to admit it, but, well...There are a lot of us who have "concept" lightboxes.We don't like to talk about it because it's almost as bad as having "miscellaneous" lightboxes in which to dump all sorts of weird stuff that doesn't make sense to a more specific category.I think the... continue reading
At first glance, this picture is just that: a picture.Colorful maybe, a little sappy and sentimental maybe.I look at this photo as much more.My boyfriend at the time was about to deploy to Japan which was half a world away.This was going to be a huge test in our relationship.Knowing that communication and loneliness was going to be a hurdle with his schedule and the time difference, I wanted to do something to remind him that I would always be thinking of him.Inspired... continue reading
Valparaiso in Chile is colourful, moody, packed with history and overlaid with a raw edge. It is one of those places that is endlessly fascinating that can be visited time and time again, without ever feeling you have seen it all. The roots of this coastal city date back nearly 500 hundred years, but it was not until the 1800's that it emerged as the major port of the South Pacific and as a result became a magnet for European immigrants. The cultural melting pot that resulted... continue reading
Is it true? What do you mean? revisited from © Ricky Yates :-Dfollow on http://rickyyates.com/how-to-be-czech-in-10-easy-steps/A few months ago, a British friend who has lived in Germany for many years, alerted me to this online article entitled, ‘How to be German in 20 easy steps’. It is written by a British man who is obviously trying to become accepted in the country in which he is now resident. The article had both Sybille and I in stitches :-) But ever since reading it, I have been... continue reading
I am pulp faction. Tomorrow, I will be discarded, pulped or worse. Today, I’m headed west, picked up for a few coins and carried with him, this hangover morning, tucked under his business-clad arm.Journeying, he rests me on my front and lingers on my back while his head bangs and pores ooze residual alcohol from Thursday’s lash. Riffling to page three, his gaze scorches the brazen, bare-breasted beauty as mizzle darkens the day. There’s no hint of a sunshine lunch and scant chance to raise... continue reading
I spent a number of hours at the Texas State Capitol during Sen. Wendy Davis' filibuster. Sadly, my camera was inoperable, but that meant I got to live in the moment, talking to strangers, sharing stories, and shouting. It was also my first time at a Capitol building and my first big protest since the events against Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin a couple years ago.Luckily, I had my camera at the ready during the next wave of protests on July 1st, 2013. I had my sunscreen on (and brought a bottle... continue reading
Most any photographer that has spent even a modest amount of time shooting has experienced moments of blunders and mistakes that, as far as he/she is concerned, at the time, were horrific catastrophes of monumental proportions. Then of course, years later, they become funny stories that we just love to tell.Take my 'ol shutter-buddy Beanz Ferbranes. He would kill me if I used his real name. Beanz is a long time wedding photographer. For some reason. I've done a total of three weddings and when... continue reading
While some (or most) photographers would prefer to lug their DSLR's around all the time, others would rather have a compact cam always tucked into their pockets for some quick snaps where ever they go.These days, technology has already caught up with the demands of photographers and have developed compact cams with full manual control features.But this comes with a price.For the budget conscious, they would rather buy compact-point-and-shoot-cams.But this should not mean that you will put... continue reading
