If the U.S. economic stimulus legislation works according to plan, there will be demands for images that illustrateenormous expenditures on the country’s infrastructure over the next 18 months and for years to come. In addition to building roads and bridges, the bill also provides for funds for alternative energy.Many outside the U.S. blame America for the worldwide depression and perhaps rightly so as it started here. If the U.S. plan does work to get the economy working again, many... continue reading

Great stock photos are all around you and in places you would never expect. That's one of the reasons I am rarely more than a few moments from my camera bag. But, having your camera in the bag is different than having it your hand...Once you get your camera out of the bag, you have to get it up in front of your face...One of my all time best selling stock photos is a shot I took on a whim while waiting to take photos of some friends singing and playing at a small outdoor venue.... continue reading
This is really a journey of discovery.I wouldn't call myself a top shelf photographer, but my photos just go to waste, being stored in various places and many have died senselessly with the death of a hard drive.Most stock photography sites want photos of people or buildings.I prefer nature.I hate worrying about staging people with silly props, getting paperwork signed, and worrying about all the various details when I can just go outside and find something interesting to share with others.... continue reading
I've been an avid hiker since I can remember.Recording my discoveries on film (or with digital imaging) has always been one of my passions.I have found myself staying with the safe paths lately though. As I get older, climbing rocks and steep hills becomes more difficult.Not too long ago I took a detour during one of my hikes and found a hidden area out of sight of the worn pathway I frequently walk.The terrain became steeper and large rocks blocked the way.Driven by what was to be found... continue reading
Some time ago I deleted many pictures from my camera, by accident... I did not have a chance to copy them to any storage device earlier, and a part of them was very precious to me. So I decided to find a way to recover them! My files had never dissapeared that way before, but I knew for sure that I should not use the flash card for taking new photos if I want deleted photos to be recovered, otherwise there’s a poor chance to recover the files.I searched through Internet looking for the cure,... continue reading
I am asked these questions so often : So what are stock photos?What should I be shooting? What is most popular? What are designers looking for? What photos sell the best?Does it sound familiar, or maybe you too are asking the same questions.I did for a little while, but then I decided that rather than try and figure out what nobody seems to really know those answers to, I put the searching aside, grabbed my camera and just started living.Life sells folks. My portfolio... continue reading

Macrophotography presents its own set of challenges quite distinct from your usual photography.First of all, you have to spring for the lens, and that's nothing to sneeze at.Then, you have to get dirty --- I mean, you have to kneel, sit, even lie on the ground to take the shots you want.You have to assume awkward, sinew stretching positions so you can take a picture of that itsy bitsy ladybug underneath that teeny weeny leaf.Plus you have to suffer ants feasting on your feet and endure static... continue reading
