Can't find a model? Check the mirror!

As another weekend approaches, another great photo idea pops into my mind. Only problem is, I need someone to model for this shot. Nobody is available, though. And that ad I've been meaning to put up on Craig's List didn't happen again this week. Ugh! What to do? Got it! I'll use my remote clicker and tripod and get in front of the camera myself. I'm not the best looking model, but a lot of the time buyers are looking for average people.The best $30 I ever spent was on my remote clicker. Set... continue reading

Going it Alone

Like many people here, I'm not a professional photographer. I've had some training, and I love it, but it's not my main job.

Being Your Own Model

I'm currently living in an area of the country where I don't have many friends or family nearby.

Adding to my own natural reluctance to step in front of the camera are the difficulties of trying to set up a shoot (sort of) with a model (sort of)... continue reading

Giving up the day job - permanently!!??

In December 2005, I quit my day job as a teacher - my aim was to do stock photography full time.The beginning of 2006, I went back to college to learn about setting up a business - keeping accounts, advertising, how to keep the tax man happy...that sort of thing. It was all very interesting - and I finally set up Art Splat Designs in April 2006.As for designing, and photography - I guess I've learnt along the way - and I'm still learning.It's hard work working for yourself, but "giving... continue reading
