Earlier this year Amazon announced “unlimited storage of images” for subscribers to their Amazon Prime service. (Prime is called “Premium” in some countries.) Amazon Prime is a subscription service that currently costs 49 euros 50 euros per month in France. The price is similar in other countries, e.g. USD 50 in the USA. Prime gives […]
Organised backup is one of the fundamental, basic, sine qua non, must-have, obligatory things you must have sorted out as a photographer. Was that clear enough? Should I say it again: you must back up, and back up well and efficiently. Once there was back-ups on CDs, then DVD and ultimately BlueRays. Disk storage became […]
Had a question today on if you can use Photoshelter (as I do) and “skin” it with a WordPress theme. Here’s my answer: If Photoshelter “support” WordPress themes? Well, no and yes. 1 — Photoshelter, native Photoshelter (PS) “native”, with nothing added to it does not support WordPress themes. However, there are alternatives: A) there […]
There is a discussion going on on a forum that I participate in on if it is a good idea for a photographer to use Photoshelter. Why should a photographer consider such a thing as Photoshelter? Today it is more and more difficult for a photographer to work with “traditional” photo agencies. And they are […]
Waking up to a rainy Saturday morning an email catches my eye: Andrew Fingerman, Photoshelter‘s VP of marketing, has sent me an email. Curious. [Photoshelter, if you don’t know it, is a magnificent service for photographers. It is an online service that a photographer can use to display, promote and sell his images, as well […]
As a consequence of one of the previous posts on the redesign of this blog I had a question on statistics from someone who reads this blog (at least occasionally). I take the liberty to repeat the question and my comments here. I thought it could be interesting for more people: Spurred on by your […]
Anyone who might have a clue what the problem is? Since I changed template on this blog, and modified some other things (installed new widgets) whenever I “post to Facebook” something from this blog Facebook does not recognise and post the photo. Previously, each time I posted something to Facebook, e.g. using the AddThis widget […]
If you’ve been here before you will notice that the blog has a new look! How do you like it? The first thing you see is perhaps that it is not black any more. I did not go “all the way” as David Sanger and make it white with black text. There are good arguments […]
There’s an interesting discussion going on on the Photoshelter forum on Google Image Search indexing of images. Some people are very upset that their images are not rapidly indexed. Some people have had some very great information to share on how to do things. It seems clear that there is work to do to make […]
Well, well, well, it took some time! I now have in place the dedicated URL for the photo site that I am experimenting with for some time: www.bkwinephotography.com – for wine, vineyard, winery photography; food and gastronomy photos, as well as travel images! Please go and visit!
Not as dramatic as it sounds. the well known photographer David Sanger has simply changed his web/blog design from white text on black background to black text on white background. It simply makes it much more easy to read. Many photographers like to use a black background. I think this is in the belief (probably […]
Well, maybe you guessed, in Lisbon for the European Wine Bloggers Conference (#EWBC) in Lisbon. And this is some background for today’s session on monetisation of blogging and wine writing on the internet.
Perhaps one should call it the International Wine Bloggers Conference instead of the European Wine Bloggers Conference (those Americans call theirs just The Wine Bloggers Conference). Or maybe there will be an Asian and an African to come. Why not? Anyway. It is coming closer (end of October). Here is more info on the Wine […]
A bit off topic, or perhaps not. At least not the usual daily picture: If you are interested in stock photography industry news, here’s an interesting newsletter: Photo Archive News, http://www.photoarchivenews.com/
No picture in this post. (The one and only!) Just too busy with other things… But I was just happy to discover that, in spite of that, this blog is ranked #15 in the top 100 wine blogs! I’ll open the champagne when its #10, but still a nice way to finish the day! Here’s […]
