    by Ellenboughn | 6th of March, 2007

  • A Kick in the Creative Pants

    by Ellenboughn | 2nd of March, 2007

    The most important advice I have to offer after my decades in the stock photo business about what images to make is listen to yourself. You know more than anyone about why you want to create imagery. Build on those thoughts first. Then see how to make the images more salable.... More

  • 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)

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of February, 2007
