SmugMug44,467Have you ever wondered how to get your photos picked up by ad agencies? How does a photographer get their foot in the door? These are questions many of us have thought about before, since photography (and ads) are everywhere we look.Well, SmugMug Pro +Alan Shapiro helped answer some of those question during a recent SmugMug podcast (bit.ly/ZsDwsb). But, we found, that the interest in this subject is off the charts, and the follow up questions for Alan have been coming in fast and furious. So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout! Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST.Have a question you would like us to ask Alan? Simply add it as a comment here, on this event. Alan will also do his best to respond to any questions we do not ask during the broadcast, right here in the Google+ event. So make sure to RSVP, and post your best question for Alan. We will even be giving away a year of SmugMug Portfolio to one lucky person who asks a question before the end of the live hangout. And yes, this will be recorded to view on our YouTube channel. #Photography #Advertising #Commercial #SmugMug #SmugMugProWhat Ad Agencies Want From You - Interested in Fashion or Commercial Photography?2013-06-12 03:00:0076

Gailen Mapes67,021Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  P-R - 20 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-20 13:26:53118605

Dylan Cuffy13,593#WhatLiesAground Well...life goes on, and I'd better keep going. (Let me know how you feel about Robin Williams' death in the comments below.)Time for the first edition of the Fab 500 sequel, Fab 2—where everyone's a winner and the +1's don't matter. Everyone I've circled, from the time the first one became full (back in April) on till now. From seasoned writers, to +Empire Avenue stalwarts, to several buddies in the furry fandom.A special shout-out to +Franck RABESON out of Madagascar—probably that country's only established fur—and to +Jason Levy and his Elite Inner Circle pals (with thanks to Ms. Blankenship, +Amanda Wright).Stay tuned for the upcoming +Widbook launch of Marigot Magic, my 2012 NaNoWriMo project. (Written with furries, Disney fans, and the Caribbean elite in mind.) Until then, enjoy your summer—and wish me luck!(NEXT UPDATE: 275 accounts, ETA late August–early September.)2014-08-12 02:20:32250101

They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

Then I worked really hard in every single genre of photography I could get into: from family portraits, to weddings to birth photography.

I was lucky. I did well in every genre I tried, and I was making a living doing it. I had success, and was finding work coming to me without really ever trying.

Then I got SO lucky, and I was recommended to an agent in a nearby city who booked photographers for interior work.... more »

Oh my gosh. Well I had NEVER tried this before… but I'm GAME!

I trained with a person who basically just did it for a living,
he didn't love what he did, and he certainly didn't strive to be great.
But I learned enough to start getting bookings.
It was hard, it was frustrating, it was embarrassing and humiliating while I struggled to get just ONE good shot… but I never thought "I can't", I thought, "learn more".
Interior photography is ALL technical based. 
Every shot is different settings. 
I use my flash on some, I use ambient light in others, I change my settings in every corner of every room. And it's thrilling to think… "nailed it".

I have watched hundreds of hours of video, I have tried, failed, tried harder until I started to figure this out.

This last week I was in the mountains on a wonderful getaway.
One of my clients had let me know that there was a chance his home was going to be highlighted by "Best Home" Magazine. A brilliant young builder who I have been shooting for, for a few years.

So while I was in a store, buying a razor and water… I saw the magazine, and just thought, hmmm…
I opened it up, and to my freaking DELIGHT - there I was.
8 pages.
9 photos of mine… in a freaking MAGAZINE.
I started to shake, and ugly cry and tried to buy the store out. (they only had 2 copies)

I could not duplicate this feeling.
THIS is what it feels like to KNOW, without a doubt, that I am doing what I was meant to do.
THIS is what it feels like to know… I am doing it well.

I am not one to brag - but screw it - I feel on top of the bloody world.
LOOK AT ME!!
I am freaking PUBLISHED.
squeal!!!!!!!!

I was literally stopped due to construction, looked over and saw this baby mountain sheep… and his family (in later photos). 
If you have never come here… it's an absolute must do on anyone's bucket list.

I shot a home today that blew me away.
An older, adorable couple that had maybe half of all the flowers in Edmonton just in their yard.
And this… is the FRONT of the house.
The backyard is 1/2 an acre FILLED!!!
I was DELIGHTED the entire shoot.
Butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, the SMELL… ohmygoodness!!!!!!!
Now I need to go buy myself flowers!!
:)

I shot a home today that blew me away.
An older, adorable couple that had maybe half of all the flowers in Edmonton just in their yard.
And this… is the FRONT of the house.
The backyard is 1/2 an acre FILLED!!!
I was DELIGHTED the entire shoot.
Butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, the SMELL… ohmygoodness!!!!!!!
Now I need to go buy myself flowers!!

Very few people you meet make an impact quite as much as the one these two made on my life, and continue to do so.
I LOVE these guys.
They believe in me, they push me, they gave me the confidence to become independent in my career, and it's the best thing I ever did.

THIS IS YOUR REMINDER:
Tomorrow, Saturday (July 12)

The 2014 Summer-Sational Round of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt will be open for sign-ups!!!
(I will be doing a post which is where you enter - not here - tomorrow at noon)
There are 500 spots open to ANY photographer of ANY level!
And they will go fast!
Make sure to be here (on my profile page) to ensure you get in!

-- What is a photography scavenger hunt?
Only the most fun you can have with your camera, that's what.

10 items to shoot, 1 season to do it in
We end up with albums FILLED with photographs that will blow you away and inspire you 
Every level of photographer is welcome.
One of the greatest benefits to participating is the level of encouragement, support, friendships and help you will receive with your fellow scavengers within the community we will create for the round.

Here is an example of work done by photographers who entered the last round, and how they interpreted the word,  "COLOURFUL"!

Anyone who knows me - knows my deep love for animals.

The trip to the village in the Dominican Republic brought a lot of clarity to me on so many levels.

The one part that was not overlooked by me or my boys was the scraggly, heartbreakingly helpless animals everywhere we went.

We packed sandwiches for the day, ham sandwiches for us to eat while we were out. Tyson didn't hesitate to give his lunch up to help some furry friends. And we ended up feeding all of our food to them!

We also had a kitty at the resort that we took special care of. After every dinner we snuck out a bit of meat to feed her, and she was always waiting for us. We named her Dominica and if we could have brought her home - oh we would have. Grayden wanted to take her back to our room for our whole trip to snuggle her each night.

Let me tell you a story.

It's a story about a man who was on a retirement vacation to the Dominican Republic with his wife.
He got lost on a walk and ended up seeing first-hand the deplorable living conditions for those people caught in the tyranny -
he literally saw a man stealing from a pig trough for food for his family -
and it tore at his heart,
and he decided to do something about it.

He began by building homes.
As people from around the globe heard about his work, they caught the vision and came to help.
To date more than 1300 families live in homes and villages that offer them education, medical help, and increased employment opportunity and training.

The people that started this are from Canada. Like me. They were just people on a holiday that decided to say… this is not okay.

The people that started this are from Canada. Like me. They were just people on a holiday that decided to say… this is not okay.

I had the absolute pleasure of being taken right into 2 of the villages that were built from this man and his wife.

We brought school supplies from home for the school, that literally had started from 10 kids in his garage -
and we brought lollipops and candies for the kids in the villages, and armed with our cameras, smiles and open hearts, we walked through the village, met the people, met these KIDS and the warmth that was returned with these smiles and happiness from the poorest community I have ever been embraced in… I can't even begin to tell you how it touched me. 

This is HAPPENING. And there are people - just like us - that are making a difference to these innocent souls.

I will be doing a series of photos from the 2 communities I experienced. And I will be starting a kick-starter donation site so we can help.

Only $4500 builds a home. 

Walking around, seeing the scraggly dogs, all the kids playing with ONE big wheel with no front tire, seeing first hand a home with one main room, one bedroom and one… bathroom… that these people take HUGE pride in, they have flowers on their doorsteps and sweep the steps and entrance and absolutely gave us warm smiles, kindness and open hearts…
We can do this.

Let's do this. You and me. 
This gorgeous little girl, who expects ZERO, who was beyond delighted that she was given a lollipop… let's represent.

Please stay tuned for continued details.
And please open your hearts.
Let's change some lives.___

AND as the OVERALL WNNER from the 2014 SPING FLING round of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt - 

you WIN the INDURO CARBON CT SERIES 8X TRIPOD

- The strongest, most stable tripods ever offered. A wide stance cross-braced magnesium alloy spider, ultra-light 8X layer Carbon Fibre legs, oversized centre column lock and enhanced leg angle locks all contribute to a tripod with up to 35% greater stability, rigidity and higher load capacity. The wide stance cross-braced magnesium alloy spider provides core system stability. The Oversized centre column lock adds vibration reducing structural support. The non-rotating carbon fibre leg sections make for quick and easy setup. Full width leg locks provide maximum support at any angle. The Reversible locking centre column allows for low angle shooting and the grip locks are dust and moisture resistant. Adjustable leg angles with lock accommodates uneven surfaces and awkward shooting situations. This is the tripod other tripods dream about.

Personally - I could not imagine this hunt without you, +Mark Rodriguez. Truly. You are the epitome of a true scavenger. You give us your brilliance in creating photos that do nothing but inspire your fellow scavengers, but you also engage, support, TEACH and are available to every single person that signs up for this hunt. 
You have NEVER let me down.
I adore you, I love you, and I SEE you for the man you are, and the incredible person you continually prove to be.
You ARE the scavenger hunt. 
You ARE exactly what it represents and I am beyond over the moon that you are recognized for your efforts.
I said it before, but I do love you.

So HATS OFF to +Mark Rodriguez 
the +Alan Shapiro winner,
the +Stefan Riss winner

AND THE OVERALL WINNER in the 2014 SPRING FLING round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt.
I hope you always continue to inspire us to reach further. 

LOVEN YOU!___

(this round's judges were +Alan Shapiro +Colby Brown +Gordon Laing +Barry Blanchard +Brian Hynes, and our winner from last round, +Stefan Riss 

There are 10 categories: TODAY I am posting the "WILDLIFE" album  - See my profile page for the "COLOURFUL", "SMALL", "STRANGER", "PHOTOGRAPHER", "SQUARE",  "LAUGHTER", "JEALOUSY", "FLEXIBILITY" AND "LATHER" albums that have already been revealed.. 

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways.
It helps improve your photography skills, gives you a huge audience, and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the round. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. ALL COPYRIGHTS APPLY)

With that - I present to you the "WILDLIFE" album,
1 item seen in 302 different ways.
