December 2011 Archives

Recently, I received flickr mail from another flickr member, Jim Goldstein who was requesting to use one of my images in an ebook he was writing about photographing "time".

I would imagine that he'd been working on this ebook for a long time, but a few weeks after I sent him the image, he sent me a link to download a copy of the finished book.

It's a good read, touching on photography basics, and then later getting into more sophisticated and complicated techniques such as light painting and star trails.

I think Jim has done an excellent job of concisely covering a variety of photographic basics, while still managing to progress through more complex techniques in a fairly short book. Being an ebook, it was nice to see a blend of traditional print layouts and photos as well as multimedia video clips.

Check out his ebook "Photographing The 4th Dimension: Time".

Getty images is one of the largest online stock photography companies, and has millions of images which are available for license. A few years back, Getty announced a partnership with flickr where select photographers and their images would be incorporated into the Getty images collection. It is by invitation, and once invited and confirmed as a contributor, images can be submitted for review by Getty editors for inclusion in the flickr collection.

Getty editors will also seek out photographers and photos posted to flickr which they are interested in for licensing purposes, predominantly because the images match current trends or demands within the marketplace.

A few months ago, I received an invitation to join the Getty images flickr collection as a contributor and asked to submit 5 images for review for licensing. About a month later, I received another request to submit another 7 images for review and inclusion.

I'm honoured to be a Getty contributor!

All of my images available for license through Getty can be seen here.

Here are a few of my favourites:

It wasn't all that long ago that Allison and Ian were engaged and getting ready to tie the knot, and soon after they actually did tie the knot. We shot their wedding, but I never got around to getting it on the blog.

Time sure flies, because they've since welcomed a baby girl into their family, and Allison asked if I'd take some newborn and family photos for them.

Personally, I enjoy people photos, and it's really cool to have had the opportunity to capture their engagement, wedding and now, baby girl.
