More Wildlife Photography

As i indicated in my March 8, 2012 post, I don't do any wildlife photography, but I keep running into interesting videos on the subject.  Here's another one you really need to see.

Counting Down to the Olympics

This blog is my "training blog" for the blog I plan to do while I'm in London this summer for the Olympic Games.  My interest in doing the Olympic blog is to share my sports photography from the Games (although I'm guessing with London as the background, I'm going to have just as many non-sports shots as I do sports shots).  I recently came across an excellent article on sports photography on the Getty Images blog and I wanted to share it with anyone else who might have an interest in sports photography.

Getty Images is a photo stock agency.  A photo stock agency provides photos to newspapers, magazines, advetising agencies, etc. that don't want to hire their own photographers.  Generally speaking, photo stock agencies use their own photographers or hire freelance photographers.

The video above features Getty's award-winning images from 2011.  Not all of the photos are sports shots.

One of my favorite photo stock agency websites to visit is that of Sportsfile, an Irish sports photo stock agency.  They do very interesting photo essays like this one of the Cheltenham (Horse) Racing Festival 2010.  It's really worth checking out.

Wildlife Photography

I've never done any wildlife photography, but if I was going to, this is how I'd want to do it.  Here's an article about the project as well as a link to the photographers' website.
