  1. How to build a reputation - Part 5, lucky break and another new camera

    So in the best narrative fashion, time passes....... my photography skills continued to improve, my storage space continued to shrink but apart from the very occasional freelance gig things carried on as before more or less, until a new job opened up and after just over a year a small bonus plopped into my lap, the option was there for an upgrade,

  2. How to build a reputation - Part 4 New camera

    SO at last a new camera was mine, an ex-rental Nikon D2x, it fell of the back of a camera hire company through Ebay and a cheekily low offer I got a camera that a few years earlier had been the industry standard for pro news photographers, sports togs and anyone who wanted a camera that could be used to bang nails in with. Was it perfect? no the hotshoe

  3. How to build a reputation - Part 3

    In need of a spare or new body and having little or no cash is a pain, but during a visit from Gordon Brown after some serious flooding in the area (West Cumbria 2009) I had been lined up to try and get some photos of the PM at one location while the official new tog went to get into position at his next port of call he handed over his D2hs for me

  4. How to build a reputation - Part 2

    So for about a year we continued doing what we were doing, there were a large number of small festivals being run for charity in the area and no money, again I turned to ebay after a really odd bidding strategy I ended up with a Fuji Finepix S2 Pro, 2 x Fuji Finepix S1 pros and a Nikon D40 and a small assortment of iffy Nikon lenses, they were all

  5. Newbie Blogger - A History or how to build a reputation in photography

    Hi,
    Many years ago, not long after the dinosaurs had walked the earth I had a camera, eventually I progressed on to a Pentax Z10 35mm camera, I took lots of photos, I got fed up with paying a fortune to get things developed and gave up, sold my kit and stopped.

    Many years later I got hold of a HP 2mp point and shoot and the last

  6. How tight is your Photography License Agreement?

    Advantages of the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G over the 50mm f/1.4D-binding-agreement-1024x520.jpg

    The “mine” mentality in the photography world sometimes gets taken way too literally. While, yes, as photographers we “own” all of our images – the images given to a client are “theirs” to use in ANY manner that their license agreement states – period.

    All too often, I see photographers with

  7. Why Not A Blog Y4D20

    There is this concept of the universal appeal where one shows photos to people and across cultures from desert to frozen North, and
    the winner is Landscape with scattered trees, maybe a road leading away, perhaps wired into our DNA?

    I do find certain landscapes just trigger appeal, such as

  8. Why Not a Blog Y4D1

    well, actually, its a few days into Year 4,, last year i wrote only a few blogs, for the first 2 years, i wrote a blog entry just about every single

  10. 7 Deadly Sins / Halloween Shoot

    I recently attended a 7 deadly sins and halloween shoot.

    I've never done anything like this so it was very new to me. It was just after midday and there was a lot of clutter and other photographers to try and avoid getting in the shots not to mention all the kiddies running around.

    I'm still playing with editing on some of
