Euphoric about photos - Interview with Photoeuphoria

posted on 10th of january, 2012

Photoeuphoria joined our community in 2004 and has managed to build an impressive portfolio while maintaining a fresh approach to concepts and photography in general. When she started this business, she was "a single stay at home mother of three amazing kids, who got lucky with a camera one afternoon and stumbled into a fairytale". And what a fairytale her portfolio is. Featured photographer between December 27, 2004 and January 3, 2005, she is one of our oldest contributors whose constant activity and style is an inspiration to many, always sending a powerful message to photo veterans and newbies alike: "If you want to see beauty in all that life has to offer, view it...

And I am curious, do you think any of your children will want to be a photographer one day?

They have each tried being on what I call "the fun side of the camera" but lost interest. My oldest is into writing fantasy novels. She has such an amazing imagination and a talent for words. My second has self taught herself Japanese and Korean and will be moving to Japan at the end of a year with the hope of becoming an independent translator... because there are not enough Japanese novels available in the US (her words). My son, loves being a goofball for the camera now and again but says he will only be a photographer if it means meeting girls. He is eight years old. I am in so much trouble!!! hehe Thank you for reading.

Michael Pettigrew's World and Photography

posted on 13th of january, 2012

Michael Pettigrew/Websubstance, this week's featured photographer, joined our community in February 2006 and is perhaps the perfect example of the highly selective photographer whose portfolio may be small but sells big. His favorite subjects are children: "Taking pictures of kids is my favorite. They are so spontaneous! Just like bugs pictures you can't really predict the end-result of your photo sessions". He also confesses to a passion for insect photos and according to him, there's an impressive stash of insect macros somewhere in his archives. He says that "Taking pictures of insects is like going out fishing. It takes lots of patience but I find it relaxing". His passion for...

Study, think, plan, shoot - Mangostock's tips for photographers

posted on 19th of january, 2012

Mangostock /Mauricio Jordan De Souza Coelho joined our community in 2008 and his is perhaps one of the best examples of the rigorous, disciplined, self-taught photographer whose great portfolio is the result of both talent and hard work. Very much like an assiduous researcher, he confesses having spent a great deal of time to study the stock industry and trends before actually shooting. We believe this prep period has served its purpose. Mauricio's view is a bird's eye view on the whole image production process, from budding ideas to releasing the image for sale. He thinks the image production taking into account all the relevant variables: the client, the model, the setting, the props, the costs. He is the man with the plan. A...

Paul Cowan - traveler, cook and microstocker

posted on 30th of january, 2012

Paul Cowan joined our community in 2004 and although his interest in photography emerged during his college days, it blossomed when he discovered microstock. He has an eye for successful stock concepts and his view is definitely unique, backed by an innate talent for stock photography. He appreciates old photographic equipment and the countryside. He's into studying nature and composition and confesses to "shooting whatever he feels like shooting without necessarily following trends". His is the portfolio of a traveler with many stories to tell, of a cooking passionate with interesting recipes to share, of a photographer who's quintessentially a microstocker.

A few words about Paul Cowan. What do you like doing when you're not...

Hi Paul - A name from the past and I see a fellow photographer, your talents are boundless!
