Jeremy Cowart

Jeremy Cowart is the man. Amazing with a camera, and a compassionate philanthropist. To hear of the extensive charity work he's done, you'd wonder where he finds the time to make a living. Look at all of the things he's started or been a part of such as Help-Portrait, Voices of Haiti, and even his Lifefinder Tour. Then look at his portfolio. He's photographed some huge names and beautiful people. Definitely don't stop at the pictures of the celebrities though. Some of his best work is with the people that are too often neglected.…Read more
Zack Arias

Zack Arias

I first learned of Zack Arias from his seminar on CreativeLive.com. The part that impacted me the most was his story of how he got started, and how much ingenuity he had in the marketing arena. He told of how he wanted to photograph bands, so he went to a meeting where bands would get together. In order to get his name out, he sponsored one of the meetings and bought beer, then he poured the beer and handed out business cards with every cup of beer, introducing himself and getting to know…Read more
Facebook Adds Fullscreen Options To Photos

Facebook Adds Fullscreen Options To Photos

Facebook has been a player in the social arena for a while now. It has had its strengths and weaknesses, but has a serious user base. Google+ is a little newer on the block, but jumped in with some really great features, many of which really cater to the photographers. I really haven't picked a horse in this race yet, but I definitely love seeing the competition. It pushes both sides to be inventive. While it does seem like a response to some of the features that Google+ has presented, Facebook is finally…Read more

Photography often begins with some experimentation and then the joy of finding beauty in the images that emerge. At some point you've gotten to the point where the pictures you get are worth money to someone and you're ready to make a go of "professional photography". What happens if you don't want to shoot weddings or crying children? There is a whole world of things to take pictures of and just as many people trying to sell something.

Starting Your Own Site Using The Free WordPress.com

Starting Your Own Site Using The Free WordPress.com

When something is free, there are usually trade-offs. With Wordpress.com, you can do some amazing things, but you will still be a little limited. The big one is that you won't have an entirely custom URL. When you sign up for Wordpress.com you'll get to choose your blog name but your URL will be "yourblog.wordpress.com". The other issue is one of advertisements. Wordpress.com will insert ads into your content occasionally for guests who aren't logged in to your site. Even with these detractors, Wordpress.com is an enormously useful platform for those on the smallest of…Read more
Top 3 Reasons You Should Have Your Own Website

Top 3 Reasons You Should Have Your Own Website

1. A Place To Share Google+ continues to gain users and popularity. I believe much of its popularity is due to the ability to share longer posts and larger pictures. As a big fan of Google+, I use it to share quite a bit, but even Google's social platform has it's drawbacks. Linking to your content in Google+ is certainly less than intuitive so far for one thing. Of course there's also Facebook. What if you wanted to share some photos using Facebook and your family is opposed to Facebook's use of their…Read more

Antennae Technology Breakthrough – Spray It On

Google recently launched a new website very similar to Ted.com called WeSolveForX.com. The idea is to bring together people from all over the world and share their innovations and ideas for making the world a better place. You'll find an amazing mix of passion and brilliance with just a little crazy when you browse through the various videos there.
