Improve Your Photography With The Photography Dash


Do you want to take photos you can proudly show everyone?

Do you want people to look at your images and go WOW, this is great?

Do you read everything you can about photography, but still can’t translate that into better photos.

Are you frustrated that when you are following tips or advise, it never turns out quite right?

This is an image I took in my first dash!!!



Guess what, you can take images like this, because you can have a professional photographer alongside you in the dash, telling you what you did right and where you went wrong and telling you how you can get it right, then having the opportunity to retake the image and get the professional photographer to then let you know how you went!!!

Most people can’t afford this because it would be hugely expensive….but this is where the photo dash comes in. You can join the photo-dash for as little as $19-50!!! (if you choose both topics) and then during checkout you will be offered an upgrade to gold or premium.

These are the levels that you get personal critiquing by either 1 professional photographer (Gold level ) or 2 professional photographers (Platinum level) and you can have this for….drum roll….less than the cost of a cup of coffee a day!!!!

Check out all the details below. The dashes run for 1 month at a time and there are 6 months planned, so you can look at exactly what is on offer. You can just do one dash or you can do them all!!!

The Photography Dash

Oh did I forget to mention….I am one of the photographers who will be critiquing your images along with two other great photographers in America. My love is nature in all her forms, Dalisa’s is Portraiture and Becki is a Californian who has a strong background in photography including an associate in arts degree in commercial photography.

Although we all have areas that we specialize in we are all professional photographers who do all aspects of photography, but as a photographer you will find you will generally be drawn to a certain type of photography. Once you have learnt all the basics and have a full toolbox you can try all the different subjects and pick one that appeals to you.

Whether you just want to take better photos of the kids or you have a special once in a lifetime holiday coming up or you want to become a professional, then this dash is for you.

Oh and it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced. we tailor it to your needs and it also doesn’t matter what type of camera you have, you can even learn on a phone camera!!!

So have a look by clicking on the link below and if you have any questions just ask me and I will be happy to answer them.

Buying Stock Photography Online

Notice: Undefined index: category_below_content in /home/julia329/public_html/wp-content/plugins/shareaholic/public.php on line 393

Sometimes too much choice can be a bad thing and stock photography is a prime example.

For years many of the household-name stock photo libraries would promote themselves as being the biggest and having the largest collections. If you’ve been paying attention though, you might have noticed that’s not such a unique selling proposition any more and many of the larger libraries are now desperately looking for other ways to differentiate themselves in a crowded marketplace.

The truth is, many photo buyers find massive stock photography collections time-consuming and tedious to search, despite the improvements in search engine technology.  The problem is, the size of these collections has increased at a greater rate than the search technology has improved … so in a lot of cases, searching has actually gotten slower and harder.

It’s no surprise then that more and more photo-buyers are opting for smaller ‘niche’ stock libraries, when they need to buy stock photos online.

These boutique stock libraries don’t even try to compete on volume and most of the time they can’t compete on price either … but more and more buyers are flocking to these photo stock sites anyway, for a whole new set of reasons-to-buy.

Personal customer service, direct contact with the photographers, fresh original images, unique styles and content. OK, maybe these aren’t new reasons after all, but they are reasons-to-buy that have been pushed aside for far to long.

A lot of it comes back to how the photo buyer values their time, and what sort of value they put on finding the right photo fast. The good news is, more and more are prepared to pay a little bit more to avoid the tedium of a mass-distribution library and hone in on quality new images sooner.

So next time you need to buy stock photos, take a pass on the stock photo superstores,  and check out a few of the boutique collections instead … you might be pleasantly surprised.
