The earliest image in my portfolio was shot in Septemberand the latest in March this year. However, most were made in the last three years. The final selection of images in the submission was heavily influenced by the Society panel members at the advisory day I attended.
I would recommend that anyone undertaking a Distinction attends an advisory day. Never mind three seasons in one day, this part of Skye experiences them in an hour. It was only on the last day of a short holiday to Delft that the light was good for reflections of the houses in the Oude Delft canal.
It exhibits cohesion not only in subject matter but also in tone. The portfolio is very well balanced and the positioning of the images that contain trees has been well thought out.
The only landscape-format print in the submission, which also contained the strongest colours, was positioned in exactly the right place — in the middle of the bottom row. He has made very effective use of colour and clearly has a good understanding of light and its effect on texture. Choosing interesting viewpoints, he has not taken the obvious photograph.
Dawson has considered the scene before him and carefully composed the image, avoiding distracting elements, communicating clearly with the viewer.
The photographs where he has chosen to go in close to his subject, creating an abstract image, were particularly appealing and they added variety. There is variety not only in subject matter but also in approach.
The photographs were all appropriately sharp and well exposed. The print quality was very good, with evidence of tonal control. There was good colour management throughout. The highlight areas were well controlled. I loved the light on the water, which made for some stunning reflections.
The level of disturbance caused by the ripples in the canal is, I think, just right. After a rather unsuccessful attempt to capture the sunrise, I turned to face the other direction. The windblown patterns in the sand caught my attention. It was central to her joining and felt like the logical next step in her photography practice.

But after gaining her Licentiate with relative ease she hit upon a stumbling block, failing her Associate Distinction. It subsequently took her two more attempts to finally achieve Associate level. The process was tough, with all kinds of emotional ups and downs, but she nonetheless kept on trying, despite how disheartening it sometimes felt.
For anyone else out there struggling to achieve their ARPS, Healey hopes her story will help you stick it out.
Knowing that insect photography is my forte, I decided to do an Associate portfolio in natural history, and so printed out loads of my photos — in a small, preview format — and pulled out three potential submissions.
I then took these to a panel member for advice and together we came up with a selection we both felt would work.
The images were of a variety of British insects, all in some sort of activity. However, when it came to printing the images for assessment, I reproduced them far too large. This problem became apparent when, during my assessment, the panel members explained that most of the images had either been oversharpened or were too soft. It was tough criticism, but when I looked at the portfolio with less emotion I could see exactly what they were talking about.
It was back to the drawing board. A lot of work went into this portfolio, taking thousands of photos in my garden, Kew Gardens and at locations in London and Surrey.
I was confident this portfolio would pass, taking care to print it much smaller, and so when I attended the assessment day and heard the panel members again tell me there were problems with the sharpness of the images, I was devastated. I am so careful about taking and selecting my images that the comments felt very damning of my ability as a photographer.
Thankfully, nothing stops me from taking pictures, other than bad weather. So I was right back out there photographing again, determined not to let the process get me down. But they had less choice. Part of it was they had less choice and the one place that you knew you could achieve any of your reach and frequency goals was through the magazine media powerhouses.
The planners know the magazine media story and they know everyone is different. And I have to do a better job of telling my story. I think they do a terrific job telling the consumer about their brand portfolio. At the Elliott Co. To go on the record, Samir, you and I are friends, but more than that, you have been one of the few consistent supporters of real magazines.
Not just magazine media or magazine brands. You and I attended a conference two years ago, the DeSilva Conference; there were speakers from the magazine industry who talked about when print goes away.
That was their theme. Do you remember the second-screen folks who were there? I remember you walking out and saying to me, Jim that was amazing. It was supplemental; they were embracing it. That in a nutshell is the problem with this industry. You have to look at the type of advertising every one of the media delivers most effectively. What are you trying to accomplish with your advertising?
As a general rule, magazines are most effective as a branding vehicle, while television and web can deliver reach and a price message quickly. Everybody is looking at it magazine-centric, not agency-centric. Most of the advertising you see right now is price-driven on online. How can we reimagine magazines in print and newspapers in this digital age as opposed to continuing along the same path that we have been before the digital age?
Your sales team, your sales organization, is capital-intensive. How you choose to make a bet as to how many reps are needed, the quality of those reps, whether or not those reps are more inclined to be great relationship managers, more inclined to be great executors of a campaign; you have to have that balance.
You absolutely have to have that balance. Again, depending upon the size of your organization and where your business is going to come from, I think that balance should shift. Jim, in your company, are you looking for multiplatform reps or are you still looking for specific people? I look at the job to be done. It depends on the job and the client. It really depends on the job to be done. And none of these companies operate the same.
The composition of your potential advertiser base will help determine that answer. There are two ways, they can go to my website, http: Is there a link? Yes, click here to download the study. We had hundreds of people download the study a year and a half ago. It makes you wonder how long it can go on. The selected books, plus prints from the publications, will be on show from October at the Espacio Gallery, London. They will then be exhibited in Plymouth and Bradford.
Divide images into sets according to content or style. Pick the best from each and start to spot relationships between them. Print your pictures and play around until you have a sequence that works intuitively. Find a good printer, someone who you like and respect, and get their input. Send copies to relevant people. Get the word out on social media.
Keep a copy on you at all times. So just do it. For more details go to bit. You can even share and sell in the Bob Bookshop. UK based Bob Books is an award winning print-on-demand platform and the number one choice for lay-flat photographic books. I had a mandate to work with an Asian movie actor, preferably one who does stunts, which would become a vehicle to discuss how influential Asian cinema had become.
I was given absolutely free rein to shoot what I wanted. I roughly described my idea to my editor; I said I wanted to photograph her dangling from a cable under a stunt helicopter flying over the Hollywood sign.
He just chuckled and said: So I did news and sports and celebrities and a sort of grabbag of assigning work. I was happy to do it. I was always happy for the work. Photographing from the top of it was a self-assigned project that interested me. However, it took about three years to get permission from the owners that I could climb it.
This one was basically a long tube and I had to climb a rung ladder endlessly to get to the top. Then the race was on to make this picture. I think I ended up with 15 useable frames. The mirrors are 8. To see them dwarfed inside that building gives you the sense that this is a mammoth structure. Few photographers could tackle his diverse range of assignments and produce such consistently strong images. He seems equally at home photographing a film star dangling from a helicopter, the view from the tallest building in the world, a sensitive portrait, a state-of-the-art military drone or a live human brain.
McNally has been a pro photographer for over 35 years on high-profile magazines including National Geographic, Time, Sports Illustrated and Life. In parallel with this editorial career, he has also shot campaigns for commercial clients such as FedEx, Sony and Nikon. Taking on major technical and creative challenges is a normal part of his professional life, yet he comes across as a modest, down-to-earth person who wears his expertise lightly.
Speaking at his home in Connecticut, USA, he attributes his varied career to three main factors. Delivered in darkness at about 2. I used speedlights to illuminate the undercarriage and two strip lights powered by Profoto 7Bs to light the edges of the wings.
I got lucky with the sunrise. It looks kinda Martian. For this shot, I had to light the whole of the building. I used approximately 60 flash heads and 65 power packs. My poor assistants were damn near mutiny and it was one of the worst jobs I ever did. The operation was successful and Jody has since gone on to graduate and get married. After getting fired and freelancing for various titles, he got his first job as a staff photographer, working for ABC Television.
However, one of his new duties was photographing the news anchors in the studio on 25 ASA Kodachrome film. McNally says you never stop learning about light. So working with light is really a lifelong educational process. The feature was called The Decisive Moment and I was assigned to photograph people who had been the subjects of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs. When I photographed her, she had recently had a baby.
