SmugMug43,907Have 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 03:00:0076G+

Gailen Mapes66,084Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  M-O - 19 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 +2014-07-19 11:32:34175305CC G+

Gailen Mapes62,875Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  M-O - 19 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-04-19 10:33:001783111CC G+

Today is the 150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant Act! Lincoln signed that act granting Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees to the State of California, setting those acres aside for public recreation and establishing the first of our +California State Parks 
I am incredibly grateful for the time I got to live in +Yosemite National Park  and for the times I continue to visit.

~Milky Way Panorama~

Last night the skies were dark and crystal clear over Nevada County, CA.  I got the opportunity to head out and attempt a Milky Way Panorama. 7 vertical images edited in Lightroom and merged in Photoshop. Still a ton to learn but I am pretty happy with this first attempt.

Today's Hike on Lake Spaulding Trail didn't turn out the way we planned. PG&E water releases had us looking for a detour around the flooded trail. Never made it to the lake, not enough time today, but we will definitely be back to explore some more.

~William B Ide State Historic Park~

Sad news that this 350 year old oak failed dropping limbs on structures there. Glad no one was injured. The shade this old tree provided on a hot summer day will be greatly missed. The news release states that the Visitors enter and day use area remain open but the historic section is closed. (This photo is from my visit there in 2011)

I've always been awed by the trees in the High Sierra. Their ability find a place to grow in among the granite slabs and boulders and their persistence to survive harsh weather extremes amazes me.  A shot from along the Loch Leven Lakes Trail for #treetuesday

Loch Leven Lakes Trail

The lakes are beautiful! A short but steep hike of only 2.5 miles to the first lake followed by a short and steep hike back out on the same trail. 

A look at trail conditions, in one word, rocks-big, small, loose, and slabs.  I saw many folks with dogs of all sizes on the trail. Be aware that the relatively short distance is deceiving. We were traveling with loaded packs, since this was a training hike for us, so obviously it took us longer than the average day hiker. It took 2 hours 40 minutes to go up and close to the same time to go down. Allow plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful lakes. There are a few brushy areas of trail but I think this is way above tick level. Altitude is a consideration since this trail is above 6000 ft. We started at the trailhead at 8 am so the hike up was warm but not too hot. It was in the 80's and sunny on the way down.Ve... more »

~Loch Leven Lakes~

Another view of the first lake. A day spent hiking with my son in the Sierra, what a great way to spend the 4th of July.

Today is the 150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant Act! Lincoln signed that act granting Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees to the State of California, setting those acres aside for public recreation and establishing the first of our +California State Parks 
I am incredibly grateful for the time I got to live in +Yosemite National Park  and for the times I continue to visit.

~Milky Way Panorama~

Last night the skies were dark and crystal clear over Nevada County, CA.  I got the opportunity to head out and attempt a Milky Way Panorama. 7 vertical images edited in Lightroom and merged in Photoshop. Still a ton to learn but I am pretty happy with this first attempt.

~Along Litton Trail~

Litton Trail is a wonderful trail in Grass Valley. I walk on it often and as the seasons change, I spend a bit of time with my camera capturing the beauty I see along the trail.

Camelopardalids Meteor Shower Over Nevada County, California~
The clouds that rolled in this afternoon didn't give me much hope to capture the meteor shower. Luckily the clouds broke up a bit and there was a brief clear window before the campfire smoke from nearby campgrounds blotted out the stars. I didn't see that many but they did seem to move across the sky more slowly that what I have seen before. They were bright enough to capture even with the haze in the sky.

~What Spring Means to Me - Yosemite in Spring~

+Colby Brown  posed the question "What does spring mean to you?" in his latest photography contest here -> http://www.colbybrownphotography.com/spring-2014-photography-contestgiveaway/ .  Here is my response and entry for #Spring2014Contest .

The meaning of spring is forever intertwined with my memories of living in Yosemite Valley. It is a time of color and contrasts. It comes on in a rush with the flow of water tumbling down the valley walls. The thundering rumble of water impacting the valley floor is the sound of spring. Warm sun, chilly breezes, gentle rain, and pelting hail, spring brings it all. It is an exciting time of change and the unexpected. While snow dusts the valley walls as a last kiss of winter, the Dogwood trees erupt in white blossoms brightening up the forest understory. The earthy smell of the sunw... more »

I had a wonderful day visiting +Yosemite National Park  yesterday. Perfect spring weather brought sun, clouds, rain, hail, and fresh snow on the valley walls. Lots of photos to go through, but here is a shot from Tunnel View taken with my Sony NEX 3N. (One of these days I will take the time to figure out the cell phone camera and editing.)

I love the Capture Camera Clip by +Peak Design ! If you hike with your camera and are tired of it hanging from your neck, dangling from your shoulder, confining you into a harness or buried in your pack check out this solution. Secure attachment yet readily accessible. Here is my full review on +Trailspace .

I have been following +Ian Ruhter  posts on Google+ and Facebook and his process has intrigued me. His journey in Yosemite is quite inspirational. Never give up on your dreams!

~Changing Skies~

Yesterday I followed the building clouds like I often do. The journey led me through Hope Valley and over to the east side of the Sierras to the Nevada desert where the rain finally fell.
