I love the internet. There’s so much invaluable information out there just waiting to be consumed that it’s really quite mind boggling. There’s even more crap, but here we’re focusing on the excellent stuff. Here’s my picks for the week.
Presenting Work to Fine Art Community – Mary Virginia Swanson
I’m in the midst of building my first ever fine art print portfolio and this article, which came to me from friend and cool dude Michael Gordon, is loaded with killer information on what to do with your art to get noticed. Just awesome.
Interview with Photographer Quang-Tuan Luong – John Lund
This very candid interview with QT Luong should be read by anyone aspiring to create an income stream through stock image licensing and fine art photo prints. It may well open your eyes to the reality of the business – for better or worse.
10 Ways to NOT Become a Successful Photographer – Luke Copping
With so many “how to” books and articles available, why not provide a tutorial on how to fail miserably in the photography business? That’s what Luke has done & it’s an enjoyable and informative read. My favorite tip? #1 – Be An Asshole.

Just what the title says. It’s a short, easy read and even if you only implement one or two of Dan’s suggestions, you’ll see results.
Legal Links for Copyright, Trademark and Intellectual Property – Gary Crabbe
Got questions about some of the legal mumbo jumbo involved in running a photography business? This is a fantastic place to start your search. Thanks, Gary!
The Subway and The Narrows, Zion NP – Scott Bacon
If you’re not in the mood to do much reading but you’d love to see some serious eye candy, this is the post for you. Scott’s hikes in the Subway and The Narrows led him to some phenomenal photo opportunities, which he is kind enough to share with the rest of us who are deskbound. Travel well, folks.
Finally, one of mine from the archives: What Do You See?
That’s it for this week. Please leave a comment if you’ve got other useful or entertaining mostly photography related blog posts you’d like to share.
