  1. In response to this, I’ve switched some images, particularly of my cats and dog, to royalty free. It sticks in my throat a bit, as I’d always been advised against RF, but I’m trying to adapt to industry changes. I’ll re-evaluate in a few months. I have a feeling Getty’s move is going to spill over everywhere for all but the most unique images.
  2. Favorite images I uploaded this month: A scale model Fresnel lens is displayed at the Pensacola Lighthouse and museum, Oct. 27, 2019, in Pensacola, Florida. The lighthouse, which was built in 1858, is 150 feet tall and features 177 steps. It features a first-order Fresnel lens which can be seen from a distance of 27 nautical miles. It is still in operation, with more than 130,000 people per year touring the lighthouse and museum. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (Photo by Carmen K.

Sisson/Cloudybright) An angel stands with her face covered in the French Colonial Memorial Garden beside the Biloxi Welcome Center, Oct. 22, 2019, in Biloxi, Mississippi. The garden, which contains the remains of European immigrants who helped found Biloxi, is the oldest known French Colonial Cemetery in the South, and the second oldest in the United States.

  3. Really love the colors on this as well as the sweat sheen. Very nice.
  4. This is a really nice shot of the port. I bet it becomes a good seller for you. Very nice.

  6. Thank you, kindly. There are still places to go, things to see, pictures to shoot. Lots left that I want to do.
  7. I like to shoot food, but I don't think I'm all that good at it. With tomorrow being Thanksgiving in the U.S., I'm thinking about dragging out my lights. Here are a few food shots I've made that I liked (and that were tasty perks of the job):
  8. This reminds me of two stupid situations I got myself into. Growing up on the water, I should have known better. In one situation, I was covering flooding and spent about an hour covering a flooded bayou. Everything was fine when I began my walk. I didn't take into account high tide, which arrived while I was walking, effectively cutting me off from my car when I tried to return. As I stood there, debating wading into waist-high water, someone came by in a boat and offered me a ride which I gratefully accepted. The second situation happened a few months ago while covering a hurricane in Florida. I was a considerable distance from the water but managed to sink down in wet sand up to my thigh (I'm 5'1", so it didn't take a lot.) The harder I tried to free myself, the more the mud sucked me under. All I could think was, if I don't get myself free before the hurricane or high tide, I will drown. There was no one on the beach to help me. It was a terrifying situation. Luckily, my Timberland boots were laced loosely that day (unusual), and I was able to free myself after considerable effort by pulling my feet out of my shoes and crawling. It made me think though. Of all the times I've photographed the water, in 30 years of being a photographer, that has never happened.
  9. I somehow missed this tragic news. Very sad to read. As a new Alamy photographer, I was inspired by his success and greatly cheered by his commitment to shoot local. I think of him often when shooting my own beach on stormy days. A terrible reminder that the sea can be beautiful but deadly, even to those most familiar with its whims. Very sad.
  10. This is a good point — thanks for the advice and encouragement. I thought all my photos were tagged, but I will go back and check the laughing gull image. I thought Alamy largely ignored captions in favor of tags, so I just left them in publication form. Must amend that. A little encouragement goes a long way, and I do appreciate it. I'll work on my captions this weekend. Thanks!
  11. Only one for April. I'm starting to get discouraged, but I know I have to just keep my head down and keep shooting, keep editing, keep uploading. I am committed to making this work. But man, my bank account looks like a crime scene lately.
  12. Thanks for everyone's thoughts on this. I just converted 403 images back to rights-managed. We'll see how it goes.
  13. My first for the month. Another presentation for low $$, but it's a sale. Organ rib vault at Callanwolde in Atlanta, Georgia. Having been around for several months now, I can say the "one sale per one thousand images uploaded" is holding true for me. I'll have 3,000 uploaded soon. Still filtering in old work as I continue to shoot and upload new.
