« on: July 30, 2008, 01:43 »
Do your knee's shaking before shooting? Do you think about equipment fail or some other bad thing that can go wrong? 

Sometimes I'm in this position and I'm little scared before shooting....This is when Im on new location and with new models.  Just think about everything and how to take best from equipment and me.

Off Topic / Anyone have assistant?
« on: April 11, 2008, 02:43 »

has anyone have assistant to help about lighting on shooting, postprocessing images, keywording, uploading etc...

I need to find someone to help me because last 3-4 photo-shootings it was taken me around month for postprocessing and only 2-3hours for taking images.
Allways have around 4-5 image series waiting for editing (800-1400 images)  and in this business working least what I need to do most and everyday.

Daily working 1-5h for stock (editing images, keywording, uploading...) and mostly is late in night when I'm tired and concentration is on minimum. Because all that submitting only on Fotolia and there have near 6300 images in portfolio.

Planing to start submitting to other major sites and hire someone who will help me about all this. But all this is risk game because If I don't supervise well maybe someone take wrong steps in editing images, keyqording... Wish to say that I need someone who I can trust and who know meaning of stock...

OK, this is my story. Can anyone share his experience with this and how do you pay assistants or people who helping you around organising your stock business.
