FROM THE EDITOR
The financial crisis is really over us - all over the world.
What to do? How to survive with our business? – No
simple answers to these crucial questions, but this double
issue of Stock Photo News should definitely be helpful for
you to survive and reach your goals related to publicizing
or producing and selling imagery. Therefore the focus on
the first articles are about the marketing aspect as these
are crusial for your success.
One thing is for sure. Publishers will still need to find the
best possible pictures for their creative productions.
In downtimes there isn’t that much room for mistakes.
An advertising campaign has to deliver. The flow of free
lifestyle magazines is currently being larger and larger, and
pictures here are among the most important ingredients for
the magazines' branding and appeal to the consumer.
Stock photo buyers might be more pressed to keep the costs
low for buying new images. On the other hand the consumption
of pictures is increasing with impressive speed.
At the one side the picture researchers need to find the best
available pictures for the lowest price. On the other hand
they need to be very efficient with their working time.
In some companies we might expect fewer people to have
the task of doing more. This tendency might move customers
toward the big picture agencies where pictures of all kinds
can be found in one take.
The web offers at the same time an incredible opportunity for
the entrepreneur minded photographer and picture distributor
to play with the big guys by offering cheaper imagery of an
acceptable quality in the eyes of many kinds of users.
For small as well as bigger businesses the marketing aspect is
only becoming more important if you want to keep your head
above the rising waters.
This is exactly what this issue of SPN should help you with
- so read, print and keep.
Enjoy reading Stock Photo News!

ARTICLE MARKETING IS THE CHEAPEST MARKETING STRATEGY
– AND ONE OF THE MOST EFFICIENT
Write focused articles fitting to your market and get many
more visitors and buyers free.
This might sound like a fairytale but it is really true.
Rather simple 400-600 word articles explaining how people can ‘solve a problem’ they have will spread on the web for years and send you qualified buyers to your site and your products.
The only thing is that you need to know how to do it to get the most out of the strategy.
I have just read a great ebook explaining the whole thing in an easy read style and with a lot of the newest things to take into account.
>From now on I will use a revised strategy for my article marketing, see for yourself here........................................................
ARTICLE MARKETING – AN OVERVIEW
Article marketing can generate tons of traffic to your website when used correctly. While it is true that time is money and you should place a high value on your time, for an internet marketer just starting out with limited or no financial resources, article marketing can be the key to securing a future. Money is not
necessary and special computer skills are not required.
All you need is a little creativity, some time to spend and the
ability to create and submit the articles. Even complete novices
can make it online with article marketing.
One of the great things about article marketing is how quickly the
search engines can pick up your content. You've always heard that
'Content is King' and if you submit your unique new articles to sites
like Website-Articles.net or Ezinearticles.com then you will find
your article appearing in the search engine results pages rather quickly,
sometimes the same day. This means qualified, targeted traffic to your site.
Of course, you should make sure to include the backlink to your website
in the article resource box, otherwise your article is basically wasted,
with no links for the visitors to follow. A tactfully written article and
resource box will get you this targeted traffic direct from the article
Webmasters and internet surfers go to the article directories to look for
quality information on a wide variety of topics. They find your article there
and will click through to your website if so compelled.
Another benefit of article marketing is that you can collect a large number
of valuable one-way backlinks to your website. Generally, the more
backlinks you have to your website, the higher your placement within
the search engines. Therefore, with each article you submit, you should
be helping your own website increase in the search engine rankings.
Also, there are thousands of websites who get their content directly from
article directories. They will post your article on their website, resource box
and all. This creates links from all over the internet pointing right at your website.
If an authority website with lots of traffic publishes your article on their site you
can get a large amount of traffic to your site in an incredibly short amount of time.
Articles also have the wonderful ability to increase your reputation online.
The more articles you submit and have published on the internet, the more
likely people will see them and become familiar with your name, products or
services. If your content fits the need that a person is looking for to solve a
problem, they may indeed come your way for a viable solution. This can
provide another traffic stream of quality, targeted traffic that could lead to
any number of business propositions or sales.
Considering the minimal costs (basically nothing), article marketing can be
an internet beginners best tool to market their products and services.
In fact, there are still many internet marketing veterans who depend on
article marketing to create traffic to their website. It is also possible to receive
traffic and sales from articles you published years ago, which proves
that article marketing can provide you with a totally passive income for years

PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPRESSIONS - 7 TOOLS FOR CREATING A CLEAR
STATEMENT IN YOUR PHOTOS
By Morten Svenningsen
Composition in photography is the art of arranging your photographic subjects
within the camera’s frame in a way that is pleasing. Or, indeed, in an
unpleasing and disturbing way if that’s your intention. The statement of an
image is always subjective, but some general rules of thumb can be useful to
remember. Here is a set of basic guidelines
>> >> A Harmonious Expression
Following the rule of thirds, “Photography’s Golden Rule”, you usually
get a fairly harmonious relation between the main subject and it’s surroundings.
The main subject is placed in a way that attracts attention to it, and there is
still a significant space on the side of the subject for the surroundings to
stand out and remain an unbroken secondary element of the image.
What you get is usually a play of sorts between the two elements.
Curved lines in the image, like soft rolling hills, often adds to the idyllic
and harmonious expression while arranging multiple subjects in round
shapes can add a sense of unity or solidarity to the photo.
>> >> An Antagonistic Expression
Place your main subject in the extreme corner or in the side of the frame
and you’ll usually get a different expression. I find it often leaves an
antagonistic expression between the subject and it’s surroundings, the
two elements playing against each other in a way. If for instance you
want to express disconnection, solitude or alienation between a person
and his/her surroundings, I find it useful to place the person in one of the
extreme lower corners of the frame.
The danger is that the viewer will normally not pay so much attention
to the corners of the image as to the subjects placed in the center or
according to the rule of thirds. So it is useful to keep the ‘surroundings
part’ very simple, without too many distracting little details so as to
point the viewers attention to your subject.
>> >> A Mysterious Expression
Placing the main subject in the center of the frame is another option
you have. Many amateurs do this by default and most other tutorials
simply advise against it. But it can also work for you if your purpose
is to create a sense of confusion, uncertainty or even mystery.
Placing the main subjects smack in the middle of the frame is a simple
way of going about it, but it can actually be a bit confusing to look at.
The background is cut up in two equal halves, leaving our eyes circling
around, not knowing where to land.
The effect can be enhanced by cropping the picture to a 1:1 square format.
Strong symmetry and radial lines pointing towards the image center can
even leave an expression of insanity. If that’s what you are aiming for
then by all means, shoot your subjects dead center!
>> >> A Calm Expression
An image dominated by strong horizontal lines can leave a sense of
stability and calmness, perhaps even heaviness. Think of a flat house
or a broad landscape. A clear horizon is often used for this purpose.
Including a big triangular shape with a flat base or arranging multiple
subjects this way in the frame usually increases the sense of stability
in the image.
>> >> A Dynamic Expression
Using diagonal lines and something shaped as an inverted triangle
(“standing on it’s tip”), can leave a sense of instability, change, action
and conflict. Remember that tilting your camera a little bit can transform
horizontal and vertical lines into slightly diagonal lines, giving a bit stronger
feel of drama, action and change.
>> >> An Expression of Grandeur
Strong vertical lines usually spell things like greatness, ambition and
achievement. Think for instance of Gothic church architecture, with
their huge gates and pillars striving up towards the sky.
Such lines can also be created by having a person in the picture who
is looking slightly upwards, perhaps with a distant expression in his/her eyes.
There will be invisible lines along the direction he/she is looking in, creating a
sense of great hopes, dreams and ambitions.
>> >> Cropping for Expression
Finally, it’s not just the elements inside the image that create the
expression. It is also the format of the image. There’s an infinite number
of variations to the exact format, but basically the image can be
either horizontal format (flat), vertical format (tall) or square format.
As hinted above, the horizontal format usually leaves a greater sense
of stability, the vertical format a more dynamic feeling and the
square format perhaps a slightly more chocking, sudden impact feeling.
All these “rules” are of course subjective and not carved in
stone. People are different and everyone will have their own
feelings when looking at the same image. The subject of the
photo and the expression of any person in it, also adds directly
to the overall photographic expression. But I do think that there
is some sort of universal similarity in the way we all form our
feelings from an image. So use these “rules” as nothing more than
a guideline. And most importantly try to sense what feelings the
different compositions make on you when you compose your next photos!

FREE EBOOK ABOUT OFF LINE MARKETING
Do you want to learn how to use offline marketing to generate online business?
Download this free ebook with step by step instructions:
REDUCING YOUR DAILY COSTS IN YOUR BUSINESS
Have you been through all functions of your business and
investigated where to reduce costs? Here are a few options:
- Make most expensive telephone calls using Skype online
from your computer – it is free.
- Convert as much mail as possible to email delivery
and reduce postage and handling
- Reduce your daily routines’ consumption of energy:
light, heating, cooling, running electric devices, computers etc.
Switch off when not in use. Many kinds of equipment can
be changed to much more energy efficient models that will
pay their cost in a very short time.
- Reduce the energy consumption of your car – drive more
energy wise or buy a more energy efficient model.
DIGITAL RAILROAD IS CLOSING
The following message was send to ASMP members and I
think it is so omportant that I dare to distribute it as is:
Digital Railroad is about to close its doors, probably on
Wednesday. If you don’t have any relationship with Digital Railroad,
skip to the last paragraph for a bit of good news. But if you have
images with DRR, there is very little time to act.
Two groups of people should pay special attention:
- If you have been using DRR to deliver images for a current
assignment, you and your client need to arrange an alternative
- If you used DRR’s tools to keyword your images (and, thus,
don’t have the keywords in your own database or in your
backup copies of the images), you will lose that labor unless
you transfer the images somewhere.
One option is to take advantage of PhotoShelter’s special offer to DRR
contributors. The details are posted on PhotoShelter’s site at
Note that PhotoShelter says the offer is good through November 4,
but if DRR pulls the plug before that, migration will no longer be possible.
And, as we’ve heard, the shutoff date is likely to be October 29.
The good news I promised is that there are other image distributors in the
market. One is Image Warehouse, which last winter extended a nice discount
to ASMP members and is planning an offer for this year.
Another is ImageSpan, an impressive newcomer to the market that has a very nice
program and is developing a deal for ASMP. We’ll be telling you more quite soon.
HARD TIMES FOR STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS CONTINUE:
CORBIS CUTS ROYALTY RATE TO PHOTOGRAPHERS
In a report from October 25. PDN tells about the decision of Corbis,
World's second largest stock photo agency and owned by Bill Gates,
to reduce the royalty ratio to their photographers for rights-managed
stock photos, not for royalty-free stock photos.

EXTRA INCOME STREAMS FOR STOCK PHOTOGRAPHERS
– SELL YOUR SKILLS
When you already have the professional skills to be a stock
photographer you will be able to make use of these photographic
skills for additional income streams. Read this article to get some
fresh ideas to improve your total earnings.
The income as a stock photographer isn’t what it has been for many
photographers who depend on their sales of stock photos.
Happily many are doing very well in stock photography and new
prospect photographers are being enrolled in the stock photography
But … Stock photography is an uncertain income stream as the income
nowadays is so depending on things happening on the Internet and these
changes happen terrible fast – for the better or the worse.
Many photographers who are doing well in stock photography have
their main income from some sort of commissioned photography and
hopefully are fine with that. For such photographers the income from
stock photography is an additional income just adding something extra.
They might not need supplementary income streams
But a huge number of photographers have seen their chance to enter into
a fulltime position as photographers through stock photography and
they might be at risk. Get inspiration for the following list of income to
optimize your income from your skills as a stock photographer.
>> >> Teach better picture taking
The income per hour as a stock photographer is often quite low (and uncertain).
Teaching is often much better paid. Choose an audience you are comfortable with.
Make use of your special expertise. Is it pet photography, macro photography,
children photography, flower photography, items photography – or is it using
PhotoShop to optimize the quality of digital pictures?
Or how to archive pictures in such a way that the photographer can find
them again? Start small, get teaching experience and build your reputation
as a teacher in photography. Teaching might be your best bet of getting
supplementary income streams.
>> >> Give presentations using your photography
Offer to give presentations about themed topics you already have covered
in beautiful pictures. Start locally. Partnering with an organization might
be helpful in the beginning. Market your skills and other offers.
>> >> Partner with non-fiction authors
Partner up with people who would like to write a book for a wider audience
with a theme that could be suitable for your skills as a stock photographer.
Some of such people might work at the universities and have a mandate to
communicate locally. Local guide books might be an option, too.
Local tourist associations might be interested and willing to support the
>> >> Be a travel guide for travellers who like photography
This option is especially suitable for wildlife photographers, travel photographers,
historical photographers. Contact a suitable travel agency to take care of the
most of the practicalities.
>> >> Sell individual photos as framed signed pictures
Some photographers are doing quite well selling framed signed pictures, but
as I know they have to work hard for it.
>> >> Develop your own website to support your activities
Develop your own photographic website and find ways to commercialize the
The smart thing is that some of the above mentioned activities will also give you
opportunities to produce more stock photos.

A MOBILE WORKSTATION FOR STOCK PHOTOGRAPHERS:
Lenovo Unleashes PC Beast on Mobile Workstation Market
with ThinkPad W700
Research Triangle Park, NC – August 12, 2008:
Lenovo today introduced the ThinkPad W700, a 17-inch
widescreen mobile workstation engineered with game-changing
technologies and innovations to exceed the demands of the most
data and graphics-intensive users. Lenovo brings the industry’s
first built-in digitizer and color calibrator to a mobile workstation
and combines these innovations with first-in-market technologies
such as new NVIDIA® Quadro FX mobile graphics and supporting
the upcoming Intel® mobile quad core processor. Other features
such as optional dual hard drives with RAID configurations, up to
8 GB of high speed DDR3 memory, a range of wireless connectivity
options and excellent multimedia capabilities including an optional
Blu-ray™ DVD burner/player make the ThinkPad W700 mobile
workstation the standard-bearer for power and performance in a
“Lenovo has engineered a new breed of mobile workstation with
the ThinkPad W700,” said Peter Hortensius, senior vice president,
Notebook Business Unit, Lenovo. “No other PC manufacturer
has a mobile workstation that delivers the sheer power, performance
and cutting-edge innovation that Lenovo has packed into the
ThinkPad W700. The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation flat
out delivers the command performance our customers demand at
the desk as well as in the field."
According to IDC, the compound annual growth rate for the worldwide
mobile workstation market has been more than 60 percent per year
since 2002.1The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation extends
Lenovo’s commitment to workstation users, complementing
Lenovo’s W500 mobile workstation and ThinkStation S10 and D10
workstations. As workers in fields such as digital content creation,
computer-aided design and manufacturing, digital photography and
science fields including the oil and gas industries become increasingly
mobile, they are demanding the full-featured performance of a
desktop workstation in a mobile workstation.
First-in-Industry Engineered Innovation
The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation takes customer driven
innovation to a new level with an optional built-in palm rest digitizer
and color calibrator. Lenovo and Intel collaborated to integrate the
color calibrator and digitizer into the ThinkPad W700 mobile
workstation. Designed for digital content creators and users, the
mobile workstation’s digitizer helps them easily configure an image,
either mapping it to the entire screen or to an area defined by the
user. High performance users, especially digital photographers,
will benefit from models with the built-in color calibrator as color
continues to play an important role in their work. The calibrator
automatically adjusts the display’s color in up to half the time of
many external calibrators and with higher accuracy, resulting in
the most accurate, true-to-life images in an integrated package.
Together with the upcoming Intel® mobile quad core processor,
multimedia designers and animators now have outstanding quad-core
processor performance and true color replication that is critical for
realistic digital creations and workflow efficiencies.
Super-Charged Performance Unleashed
Supporting the latest Intel processor technologies including the upcoming
mobile quad core processor, the mobile workstation can be configured
with up to 8 GB of memory with an additional 2 GB of Intel Turbo
Memory. Lenovo also offers models with Intel® vPro™ technology for
complete manageability. The mobile workstation can be equipped with
dual internal hard drives, including solid state drive storage.
The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation offers both the
NVIDIA® Quadro® FX 2700M and 3700M Open GL graphics processors
with up to 1 GB of dedicated video memory for exceptional graphics
performance in a 17-inch mobile workstation. The hard drives can be
configured for RAID 0 to help users access and save their data faster
than traditional disk-writing methods, or users can choose RAID 1
for mirrored data redundancy.
The mobile workstation includes WiFi wireless connectivity.
Additionally, users can connect to other devices wirelessly using mobile
workstation models featuring Bluetooth and ultra wideband technology.
Models supporting WiMAX will be available later this year.
New Heights in Display Technology and Multimedia Excellence
As the company’s first product with a 17-inch display, the ThinkPad
W700 mobile workstation delivers an unparalleled viewing experience
with a combination of leading technologies. Its optional 400-nit WUXGA
display provides up to twice the brightness of earlier ThinkPad mobile
workstation models, and the 72 percent wide color gamut provides more
than 50 percent greater color intensity. The high resolution, extreme brightness
and wide color gamut coupled with the NVIDIA Quadro FX MXM graphics
solution results in a user experience unequalled in a mobile workstation today.
For external connectivity, the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation provides
support for Dual Link DVI, Display Port and VGA. A 7-in-1 multicard reader, a
nd five USB ports give users flexibility in transferring and accessing digital content.
Additionally, the workstation comes with an optional compact flash reader
and Blu-ray™ DVD burner/player. An optional mini-dock extends the mobile
workstation’s capabilities with eSATA and digital audio ports as well as
convenient cabling for power, external monitors and peripherals.
Packed for extreme performance, the mobile workstation also features
BIOS/port disablement and an optional fingerprint reader, a smartcard
reader and hard drives with full-disk encryption. It will carry more than
20 certifications from independent software vendors.
“Our engineers use Lenovo ThinkStation workstations to help them design
the next-generation Williams - Toyota FW31 race cars, aiming to make them
faster and more agile, with greater performance than the competition,"
said Chris Taylor, IT manager, AT&T Williams. “We’re
thrilled to see Lenovo deliver the workstation performance we’ve come to
rely on - now in a mobile, portable solution.”
Pricing and Availability2
The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation will be available beginning in
September with models starting at $2,978. It is available through Lenovo

SINCE LAST SPN
Some important changes have happened in my life since last SPN. The most
important was that I got my 6th grand child, a beautiful small girl
October the 21.
A successful birth is always like a miracle, even I should know better with
my biological background.
In September I had the big pleasure to participate in a workshop about the
stock photo industry and stock photographers' production of saleable stock
at the Art Wolfe gallery and facilities in Seattle, Patrick Donehue,
chief photographer of Corbis, was the experienced workshop leader, and the
programme was described in last SPN see:
This workshop has prepared my future in stock photography very well is my
conclusion and I am eager to continue my engagement in the development of
the whole industry and in my own business as a stock photographer.
To travel from Denmark in northern Europe to Seattle at the north western coast
of USA is quite a journey for a 5 days workshop. But I must say that the outcome
of the workshop was well worth the total high costs and the time spend, due to
the high quality of the planning and conduct by Patrick and his invited
See you in next SPN.
