War and Peace

Occasionally I have the opportunity to query buyers of images about their specific needs. This week I spoke to the head of an art buying team that spends over seven figures on image licenses annually. Naturally I asked about the kinds of images they use in the subject area that I was planning on writing about this week-military life.Our client mentioned that his department seeks images of the military that show courage and honor and images that indicate pride in service and country.This particular... continue reading

I know I am in Texas.As too many bad things happened, I wish those dangerous “toys” are just collections, not tools…... continue reading

Sports Photography - Overlooked?

Do a search for sports. What images come up? Football, basketball, lacross, soccer, all those ones we all see blasted on our television sets. I would like to take a minute to briefly cover the sport of precision firearms.Shooting exercises with rifles and pistols go beyond the need for hunting, or the desire to live out some power trip.
