Attention Sydney's Professional Photographers I need your helllllp!!

I’ve been asked to do some preschool portraits for families in April and I’m in dire need to know who can put together some affordable print bundle packages.
If anyone knows or can recommend a printing company I would be very grateful.
Some things I’d like to have in the packages would be:
A) 2x keyrings, 1x mousepad, 4x wallet size pics and a large print.
B) 2x keyrings, 1x mousepad, 4x wallet size pics 2 medium and 2 large print.
C) 2x keyrings, 1x mousepad, 4x wallet size pics, 3 medium and 3 large prints.

I think you get my gist of things..

So please advise asap

thanks in advance

Some Creative Tutorials.. Watch out for more to come...

The following sliced fruits shots tutorial is by photographer and artist William van der Steen.

The tutorial will take you step by step toward creating an image similar to that wonderful sliced up banana.

Here we go
Selecting Raw Material

The first thing is to select an object to work with. Any fruit or vegetable can work here, as long as it can be cut in a relatively clean way. Hard fruits and vegetables are the easiest to use. After I decided what kind of fruit or vegetable I’m going to use, I’m going to think about how this object is sliced the best way, some fruit is very soft and that doesn’t give you complete freedom on how to slice it.


Working Towards The Final Image

We need a way to make the fruit pieces seem like they fly in mid air. Most of the times I use toothpicks to hold the…

How Can Anyone Call This ART??!!

I was on Facebook the other day and as usual received an invitation to join a group, I joined this petition because I felt moved by what it had wrote…. (see below) I have taken it upon myself to let everyone here read the plea of the group and make a decision for yourself to join if you are on Facebook also, even if you aren’t, I’m making you aware at what lengths some would go to in the name of ART.

#Here’s my comment:
I don’t understand how the mind of some people work, honestly to tie up a stray animal in the name of art, let them suffer until death, whilst all the while being on show like some performer for the sick & twisted onlookers who also consider this art is appalling! Not one person bothered to unchain the dog, not one bothered to even feed or p

WOW Photographer Of the day!

You can imagine my surprise when I received a email from PhotoArtGallery informing me that on the 24th Dec, 2009 my work would be published and displayed as Photographer Of The Day.
I was so excited, and naturally told all my friends via email and on my Facebook page about the exciting news..

Well come 12pm today I looked eagerly only to find nada! nOthing! Zilch! LOL
OMG how embarrassing…!! I sunk in my chair feeling a right idiot LMAO..
Luckily I have a good sense of humor so I just grinned and built my bridge and got over it, thanked my angels and let it go.. Well, low and behold 2 hrs ago I checked thinking what the hell, and there it was, my little page of glory dedicated to me.. woo hoo!
It’s a small step but one I hope will bring a bit more exposure to my efforts.

Anyway,…

Vote Seekers P@#$# me Off!

I was browsing some challenges and was absolutely stunned at some of the images that won, now firstly, I didn’t enter these particular ones, and as it would most likely be I wouldn’t have a chance against some of the fabulous works I saw..

However, it is no doubt blatantly obvious that the winning image must have sought votes, why can’t people just allow their image to win on it’s own merit? Lets face it, if you feel you have to seek votes then it really mustn’t be that good even to you!

So don’t do it,.. then we might see real quality come through winning challenges..

That is so unfair and unjust and for Pete’s sakes it is just a bloody fun challenge!
Challenge meaning just that! You challenge your work against other artists works and if the publi…
