Editorial - my market for the future?

posted on 22nd of may, 2011

The more I get into this game the more I become convinced that editorial images are where my future is. Not for the money of course. Commercial is certainly going to provide a much greater RPI that most Editorial portfolios. I have to emphasise "most", as there are a few editorial photographers who I am sure earn a considerable income from their ports.

But for me, the reason is more of satisfaction and interest. I am simply not that interested in setting up with models, studio shots or the "factory look".

This is only me though, I respect others that find their niche and enjoyment in whatever photographic path they tread.

So, what makes good editorial images?

Thanks again so much for your comments. Judging by the portfolios of those kind enough to comment, I have a way to go.

DT is a nice place to be, with even nicer contributors.

Rain, Rain, go away...come again another day!

posted on 25th of may, 2011

Boy, have we had some rail this Autumn. So much that most of my time for the past month has been spent in the house doing, well, just house stuff.

But last Saturday on the off-chance that we might, just might, get a little sun, spouse and I jumped on a train into Melbourne's Southbank precinct for a nice lunch and to see if we could take a few photos. Southbank is a delightful part of our delightful city, so even if the weather remained unkind at least we could have a nice stroll.

But, our lucky day, the weather improved for about three hours, with a few nice shots to compensate for the dearth of opportunities over the last little while.....

An Open Letter to Designers

posted on 25th of may, 2011

Dear Designers

You are probably aware of the current issues regarding lowering cost of images, shrinking returns to photographers and the parlous state of the stock market at this time. Some are questioning that the current situation is sustainable. In a wider sense, this may or may not be correct, but dark clouds may be ahead.

But please understand that Dreamstime is not one of the agencies often quoted as being at the heart of the problem.

As far as I can see Dreamstime provides an excellent service both to buyers and providers. As far as providers go Dreamstime is very fair. They:

* review our work with understanding,

* maintain quality and almost always offer sound reasons for rejection,

* are respectful in their communication...

Yes there is a fair amount of fair play here at DT so I suppose all can harbour on it.
