Ensuring your website delivers relevant content for SEO | Business_shine.co.uk

Introduction In recent times, I have started to pay more attention as to where, and in what way, my website is featured in search engine results. Many of us will know the importance of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) which is the process of ensuring our posts and pages contain titles and metadata that helps search engines like Google understand what the content is about, and therefore enables it to list you appropriately for any given search term. Background I've

Inspiring Professional Wedding Photographers | Virgil Bunao

The 4th member in this series of inspiring wedding photographers is Virgil Bunao over in the USA. This chap is a hybrid shooter, combining both digital photography and film photography together in the same event. This is not all that uncommon these days, though I would struggle with it personally...just too much to think about! But he seems to be doing a great job of it, is an award winning photographer and seems to have a wedding at least

Inspiring Professional Wedding Photographers | Ann-Kathrin Koch

In my third post in this series, I wanted to quickly write about photographer Ann-Kathrin Koch. I first noticed her from a 2015 article in The Guardian. Her story was an intriguing one, and one that I suspect many of us can relate to with regard especially as to how she made it as a pro photographer. She reports that she started doing wedding shoots for friends and family here and there, alongside other photography and a career in

Inspiring Professional Wedding Photographers | Kristin Sautter | Fine Art Destination Wedding Photographer in Europe

Kristin Sautter | Fine Art Destination Wedding Photographer in Europe I stumbled across Kristin's website and details whilst searching for other fine art wedding photographers. Her images immediately captured my attention, having that fresh bright and pastel look that I really like myself. And she has a great branding and tag line which is "IMAGERY FOR THOSE WITH WANDERLUST". She makes a point of using that a lot and I think it's a great idea to form part of

Inspiring Professional Wedding Photographers – Julie Michaelsen Photography

As frequent readers will know, I have been "a photographer" for long time. And by that title, I mean a generic "jack of all photography" who photographed anything I liked the look of; just someone who loves capturing moments on film forever; landscapes, sunsets, waterfalls, people, streets, and also weddings when I can. When I was a kid, while most of my friends were doing what kids did in the 1980s, I was on my bike travelling to industrial

  • Posting to Instagram from desktop PC

How to post to Instagram on Windows, Apple Mac or Linux desktop

Do you get frustrated that you can only post to Instagram from your smartphone? Do you wonder why that is? Do you wonder if there's another way? For me, the answer was "yes" to all of those. But stay strong dear readers...there is a way, and it isn't to e-mail your pictures to yourself and then save the attachments on your smartphone, though that is the way I know many of us have relied upon. Step 1 : You

Silverpan Film Lab – a UK based film development service

I've been using film as my photography medium of choice since the day I started out with photography back in the 1980's (obviously there didn't used to be a choice in those days!). When it got to the late 00's circa 2008, choices for film processing services were getting fewer by the day. I remember 2008 quite notably; there was literally only a handful of places to get film processed, scanned and printed, in the UK and none of

Beware – be careful buying photographic film on eBay

If you shoot film for your photography, you will be aware that film is not particular cheap. It's actually not that much more expensive than it ever was in real terms believe it or not, even if it feels like it is. But the point remains the same - paying around £50 for 5 rolls of medium format film like Fujichrome Provia 100 seems like a big deal when funds might be tight. My first point here is that

Introducing “The Film Photographers Map”

UPDATE: Due to lack of interest, this endeavor was discontinued end of June 2019. I've been a film photographer pretty much the entire time that I have been taking photographs, except for a two year spell around 2007 when I used a Nikon D70s for a bit. Of course, many years ago, there was no separation between a film photographer and a digital photographer. Film was all there was, so you were just "a photographer". But with the
