    by Ellenboughn | 6th of March, 2007

  • A Kick in the Creative Pants

    by Ellenboughn | 2nd of March, 2007

  • A Good Stock Image is an Incomplete One...

    by Ellenboughn | 17th of February, 2007

    A pioneer in the stock business once said, "A good stock photo is an incomplete photo". That doesn't make sense, does it? Shouldn't a great stock photo simply be a great photo? Sometimes, yes. But think about one of the reasons stock photos sell and the unfinished... More
  • A trip to the bookstore (Part 1)
