  • Wild Models

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of March, 2007

    Yesterday I found myself on a long pier stretching far out into the Atlantic Ocean. An aggressive group of large pelicans were hanging around the end of the pier to snatch leftover fresh bait. These birds... More
  • 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 Sense of Place (Part II)

    by Ellenboughn | 28th of February, 2007

    Before you arrive in a new location, do research. Looking at map is not enough. Nor are guidebooks necessary the only printed form of information at your fingertips. Get a compass so that you will be able to anticipate how the light will be at different times in the day in... More
  • A Sense of Place (Part 1)

  • What is She Wearing?

    by Ellenboughn | 20th of February, 2007

    Wardrobe is key to a professional looking image. And the type of clothing that a model is wearing can enhance the salability of an image in more ways than one. Here is a terrific image of a teen writing on the board in her classroom. The model's top gives a clue... 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

    We all get "stuck" in a void of inspiration sometimes. I find that my best ideas often come out of the blue when I'm NOT consciencously trying to think of something creative. When that kind brain freeze sets in, try just taking a break from even thinking about your own work.... More
  • Introduction

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of February, 2007

    by Physi28 | 8th of February, 2016

    Today I made a sale of a Warthog which is one of the funniest (the piglets) and toughest (mother with piglets) african animals you can imagine. This pic is by far not any of the better Warthog photos I made during several trips to Kenya but sometimes the buyer choses those... More

    by Physi28 | 8th of February, 2016

    2014 was not a year I would remember as to be called a good one much as in all the difficult situations we can find a positive learning process as it happened to our friend Bart Dierickx. You may read his recent post. A serious health problem (for the time being I am ok)... More
