User Generated Content Expo

Microstock falls into the UGC classification but when one tries to define UGC to someone who has never heard of it, you realize that the designation doesn’t totally apply to Dreamstime. A friend in the industry who works with professional advertising photographers on assignments asked me to explain UGC when she found out I had attended the UCGX in San Jose, CA earlier this week.I said the users of the content also generated it. She replied, “You mean like art directors buy in-house photographer... continue reading

Going Negative

Much is being made in the current U.S. presidential race about ads and emails that disparage the candidates with the use of innuendo and false accusations.

Around the House

It’s nearly spring cleanup/fix up time.I’m limiting my spring action to probing the back of the refrigerator to dislodge jars of forgotten spaghetti sauce.But for those that will spend in excess of 150 million dollars on home improvements this year in the US, it’s time to get to work.

A day out with my camera

Tomorrow I am going to my first ever proper photography event. The local birds of prey centre has photography days every now and then, and I am going to one.The reason I am going is because my camera-related behaviour has led my family to view me as a cause for concern. It’s the school summer holidays in England at present, which means that it has been raining quite a bit. This, alongside my attempts to keep my son from permanently attaching himself to things with screens, has rather limited... continue reading
