  • 2012 in review

    by Tangie | 31st of December, 2012

    The year which is about to end has been full of events: from the Olympic games to the US presidential elections, from riots and strikes to much debated bailouts, from record artwork sale to Felix Baumgartner's fearless supersonic jump, from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee to... More

  • Flagging insights

    by Tangie | 21st of November, 2008

    Say flag and everyone will jump: where, why, when, how? Ever since we put up the flagging system, people have used it continuously - needless to say there are some tens of thousand of flags at this point. A lot of work for us and a huge piggybank for you. Looks like you... More
  • Funniest thing I've read lately

    by Tangie | 13th of November, 2008

    Here is something someone in my office was kind enough to give me to read today. He told me that I should read it as it is connected to what I do and it will help me improve my customer service skills. I must admit, it surely made an impression. I laughed a lot. It is... More
  • Baby Boomlet

    by Ellenboughn | 5th of August, 2008

    In Chicago a popular European coffee and pastry shop has banned classic baby prams – the type of baby carrier that plows down the street slicing though pedestrian traffic and taking up more space than a SmartCar. I fully understood the coffee shop’s rules as I strolled... More
  • India Now

    by Ellenboughn | 22nd of April, 2008

  • Local Global

    by Ellenboughn | 10th of October, 2007

    Business and travel have shrunk the world. Our customers sometimes want images that represent local and regional lifestyles and symbols. How can you best illustrate the character of the country in which you live without using flags or depicting landmarks? The assignment beginning... More
  • Religious Freedom

    by Ellenboughn | 27th of September, 2007

  • Copyright or Copycat?

    by Ellenboughn | 19th of September, 2007

    “If I have seen further (than other men), it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants,” is a quote attributed to Isaac Newton in reference to his dependency on Galileo’s and Kepler’s work in physics and astronomy. There is certain nobility in giving credit to the... More
  • Alice in summer

    by Tangie | 25th of July, 2007

    The wings, the swing, the rabbits and the images, all seemed wonderful and magical to little Alice. She would spend days floating, swinging, watching photos and laughing. She made a resolution: never to leave ********nd. Besides, there were too many secret corridors in **... More
  • First days in Photoland

    by Tangie | 12th of July, 2007

    Equipped with fairly good knowledge of words, strong sense of humour, gripping onto reality, sometimes wandering through alternatives, chattering all the time, a habit she still can’t get rid of, Alice stumbled upon photography with genuine and untrained eyes. Never wanting... More
  • Alice in Photoland

    by Tangie | 7th of July, 2007

    I have recently discovered a new playground. Roaming through life, I have fallen in a magic rabbit's hole. Instead of falling right to the bottom, curiously enough I started floating swiftly. Then the images came pouring around me. I reached and took one. Then another one... More
  • Shots That Take Off. Shooting Air Travel

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of April, 2007

    In the next two months I'll be traveling across the US more than once, going to Alaska and to several destinations in Europe. Travel destination images are plentiful but what about images of travel itself?... 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... More
  • A Sense of Place (Part 1)

    by Ellenboughn | 26th of February, 2007

    I'm in San Francisco this week, staying near Union Square. There is a photographer on every corner snapping every which way. So how do to create images of a beautiful and much photographed city that will stand out from the competition?... 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... More
  • Photography can be so dangerous sometimes

    by Katey997 | 27th of August, 2014

    Well after a few days of nonstop rain, today i thought i try my new canon 100mm L 2.8 macro out for size but it didn't go to plan. About one mile in on my walk i started feeling really weak, i thought oh no not again, my blood sugar levels started to drop and i had no... More
