Lights, Camera, Still Shots, and Action

“Do you see what I see?”

Art through a camera’s lens: A wide range of subjects and methods of photography, and lighting. From panoramic shots, to macro photography. Digital and Traditional art.

Many years ago, I was given a novelty camera for my 8th birthday. To my surprise it actually took pictures! Not great ones, but enough to get me started. From there I learned how to develop both film and prints.(Preferred B&W for this, as amber or red lights could be used) I will always have a special place in my heart for B&W photography. It’s easier to get a spectacular and vivid color image, but it’s a bit trickier to get an eye catching B&W. Even with the age of digital imaging, I tend to take photographs as if they are still film and I am on a tight budget. It tends to make me wait for that just right shot.

I took my love of photography and put it to use, and got a graphic arts degree. My talents of drawing, painting and layouts came in handy when we were assigned projects that had to be designed from scratch.

I am originally from the US, and moved to the land of roos and wallabies in 2000.

I tend to have a strange eye when it comes to selecting photographic subjects, finding beauty in some rather different subjects. A friend of mine told me I was a “Zen photographer”, and yes, I took it as a compliment.

Live and Learn, I guess

One day after I requested my images be reinstated as UBISOFT never filed any charges in the 14 days, and I had proven that my images predate their game, so couldn’t be derivitave of their game, and UBISOFT doesn’t own the copyright to the words/phrase “Assassin’s Guild Meeting”, the three photos that received a takedown notice from UBISOFT have been reinstated. For …

Finally got a Ubisoft contact

And I drafted and sent this letter to them: / “Dear Ubisoft; / In early 2007, I did a concept photography session in my home. I made prints of these photos and sold them at art show and printed on demand, and have been selling them for the past 6, almost 7 years. I did this before your “Assassins CREED” game came out. / The reason I’m saying this is my 3 photo series is ca…

I got some interesting and helpful news

I had queried about this kerfuffle with Ubisoft and their claim of IP Violation due to the name of my photo series “Assassin’s Guild” / This is the response I received: / “The word “Assassin” (in various spellings) dates back to the Crusades. UBISOFT is literally trying to trademark a word of medieval origin. What’s more, they are trying to trademark only…

Sorry, UBISOFT, you do NOT own the word "Assassin"

Although my photos pre-date their game by the better part of a year, UBIsoft has decided that the word ASSASSIN retroactively belongs to them and only them. Guess again. My response to them: / “Dear UIBSOFT, in early 2007, I did a concept photography session in my home. I made prints of these photos and sold them at art show and printed on demand, and have been selling their for the past 6,…
