This can be a touchy and heated subject. With the advent of digital photography and the ease of duplicating a photo. Clients and other photographers and printers can easily run into copyright infringement. Continue reading “Copyright – What is it and what it means to a photographer.”
I see it all the time, photographers posting pictures of their clients on and around train tracks.
1) It is illegal – Photographing on active tracks is always illegal and photographing dormant tracks is almost always illegal. The tracks and the area surrounding them are private property, so when you shoot on the tracks you are breaking the law (criminal trespassing). Even if you don’t see trains on the tracks, and there’s vegetation growing up in the railbed, it is still private property and those tracks can be active at any time.
If the tracks are dormant and non-functional they will be clearly marked, and even then your presence on them is still trespassing. Continue reading “Stay off the train tracks!”

So as you may or may not know. I volunteer to cover media for a local Christian radio station. I just finished shooting their largest concert, a 3 day event. If you’ve attended a concert that they sponsored, you’ve see me. I’ll be the guy loaded down like a pack mule with over 20# of camera gear, probably blocking your view (sorry, I need my shots).
This year it was HOT!!!! I sweated so much that my ballcap was soaked in every inch and I never got in the lake or got wet. I got sunburned good, not as bad as I have in years past… but with all the sweat I cannot put anything on my face as it would just run into my eyes anyway. Continue reading “Shooting a concert”

I often hear people make comments about how expensive my camera gear is. They are actually right and wrong, if I were to add up the cost of all the photography gear I have bought over the years it would be a fortune. But if you buy smart, you won’t have to break the bank and can get some good gear.
