New to stock photography

"Hy, I'm new to stock photography, can you tell me how to go about the business?"  I hear that phrase quite often, my best advice is to buy "Sell & Re-Sell your photos" by Rohn Engh. You can see by the photo I have used this book often, it was invaluable for me when I decided to start selling my stock photos. Below is the link to order yourself a copy from amazon.

Black bear

I was shooting this scene of a bear feeding her 3 young cubs with my 70- 200mm lens on my Canon 1D Mark II. When  decided to get a little closer the mother bear opened her mouth to warn me not to get closer, so I just had time for this one shot at 200mm then back away to leave her alone.  You need to spend a lot of time outdoors and patience for these type of images, but it is well worth the effort.

Mode & Design festival 2014

Mode & Design Festival: It seems like this years edition, everyone with a video camera or blog received a photo/video pass. Luckly  Thursday night Paul was there to keep the troups in order, no easy task but he always succeds. Then there's Agence QMI's photographer who can't sit still for more than 5 minutes, so once again I have a few shots of the back of his ball head poping up in the corner of my photos. What a contrast to the Gazette's photographer (and the other photographers as well) who does his job without getting in anyones way.
This year edition of Mode & design festival is held at the  Place des Festival beside Place des Arts.
