Shutterstock Presents story submission

In the spirit of “can’t hurt to give it a shot,” I submitted my story to Shutterstock Presents, cross your fingers that they decide to feature me… Here’s what I submitted: My professional photography career started when my kids insisted I get a “real” camera before a 2004 trip to the Grand Canyon. Since then … Continue reading

Milestone – 2,000 photos on Shutterstock!

I noticed an entry in my journal on July 19, 2009: “69 photos on Shutterstock!”  What a coincidence because today I noticed that, with the photos I submitted from the Chelsea Sounds and Sights on Thursday Nights event I photographed last week, I just passed 2,000 photos at Shutterstock.  I’m thinking of what I thought … Continue reading

Shooting stock photos – Tall Ship Celebration, Bay City, MI

This is one from last summer, catching up.  Went with a friend to the Tall Ship Celebration in Bay City, MI last summer, had a great time touring some of the masted ships: Since the point was to spend a lot of time looking at the ships I had plenty of time to take photos … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – January 2016

Other than the news of photos accepted to Blueprint, not much to report for January. I’ve made some time for photography, most of it photographing some logos between running errands and also submitting photos to other stock websites, trying to catch up there… I’ve been so successful with Shutterstock that it feels like a lot … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – December 2015

Over the holidays I finally found/made the time to process photos from this summer and fall and submit them to Shutterstock, so I’m up to 1435 photos. I even took some time during a visit to Detroit to sneak in some photos as well…  So the new photos at Shutterstock included those Detroit photos, many … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – October 2015

October had lots of excitement, including the publication of the travel stock photos article in Digital Photography School, now with over 900 shares!  Also had the two photos I submitted accepted at the Ann Arbor Women Artists Fall 2015 Juried Show at our local district library.  I was told at the opening reception that there were … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – September 2015

In September my teaching job needed most of my time, but I managed to take some photos around town. In the most exciting news, my proposal to write an article about stock travel photography tips for Digital Photography School was accepted! I submitted and waiting to hear back from them, can’t wait to see it in … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – August 2015

Wow, that’s summer gone.  I do plan to write up the trip to Iceland from back in June, but waiting to see if there might be interest in that piece at a professional photography website and it can’t be published elsewhere first, so cross your fingers on that one. August included some good times taking photos in … Continue reading

Monthly Reflections – June 2015

Yikes, July is just whooshing on by and I haven’t written up my end of June posting yet, oopsies… Had a great time in Iceland, will be processing those photos and the 4th of July photos too, just so many things I want to do this summer…  I did catch up on processing the logo photos … Continue reading

Monthly Reflections – May 2015

Finally in May we got some photography action, yey! The day job had more loose ends to tie up than I remembered, but I did have/made some time for photography. I went to Holland, MI to take photos at the Tulip Time festival. I started to process some of the logo photos but was quite … Continue reading

Milestone – A thousand images on Shutterstock!

Excited that this week I hit 1,000 images on Shutterstock! I was at close to 800 at the start of the summer and set a goal to hit 1,000 by the end of the summer, did great with Detroit photo day, then things slowed down a bit and thought it wasn’t going to happen, but … Continue reading

Shooting stock photos – Store logos

I had noticed that many articles on websites and newspapers about companies include shots of company logos, so I decided to hunt up some company logos for stock photo shots. I went early on a Sunday morning with no bright sun to one of our streets with lots of stores and went up and down … Continue reading

Shooting stock photos – Outside major soccer game

Apologies for the delay in posting, I decided to change my process to post after I’ve heard from Shutterstock so that I can let you know in the same post how successful I was, then I had a bit of a carpal tunnel issue with my right hand, so I took it easy processing photos … Continue reading

Had a great day in Detroit Sunday, spent much of the afternoon taking photos.

I also looked up companies with headquarters in Detroit and … Continue reading

My workflow for editorial photos of classic car shows

Just submitted some editorial photos of some classic cars to Shutterstock, thought I’d share my workflow. You can see my classic car show photos here. Taking the photograph is of course the most important part. For classic car show photos, such as this one from last summer’s Woodward Dream Cruise: I can easily spend 15 … Continue reading

Shutterstock submission page and guidelines

Shutterstock is the first stock photo website I got into, in 2009, and their critique forums were very helpful in teaching me about stock photography in a supportive environment. They currently result in about half of my stock photography income. Read their guidelines carefully and follow them. Photos must be at least 4.0 Megapixels in … Continue reading
