Our newest product photography client, Courage of the Heart Creations,  designs jewelry from natural stone or glass.

Necklaces, bracelets and earrings are named.

A story is delivered with each piece explaining the name of the piece as it relates to its components, legends about the stones and other information. The metals used are pewter, gold-plated or silver-plated.

Jan Copeland grew up learning about geology and mineralogy and frequently traveled with her dad on rock-hounding trips. The love of minerals stuck, and finally flowered into making jewelry inspired by the legends surrounding the stones and colors.

Exhibition Image – Sculpting Jade

Exhibition Image,

Sculpting Jade,

was exhibited at the state-level competition of Professional Photographers of California. The image was captured during a jade factory tour while Julie was on a trade mission to China.

Yes, that is a piece of paper draped over the light to shade the artist’s eyes. The really astounding feature of the sculpted jade is that the inside of the globe is also carved jade which is loose yet fully contained.

Stock Photography Agencies Representing JDP

Are you writing a newsletter or blog and need a photo to explain or enhance your topic?
You probably already know about stock photography. Stock photography is a supply of photographs that are licensed for specific uses. One buys these images for creative assignments instead of hiring a photographer, and most often for a lower cost. You purchase them and they are delivered online. You also may know that you search the images by keyword and select from photos that match those words.

Royalty-free stock photography…

offers a photo buyer the ability to use an image in an unlimited number of ways for a single license fee. With royalty free licensing there is no option for getting exclusive usage rights.
“Free” in this context means “free of royalties (paying each time you use an image)”. It does not mean the image is free to use without purchasing a license or that the image is in the public domain.
• Pay a one-time fee to use the image multiple times for multiple purposes (with limits).
• No time limit on when the buyer can use an image.
• No one can have exclusive rights of a Royalty-free image (the photographer can sell the image as many times as he or she wants).
• A Royalty-free image usually has a limit to how many times the buyer can reproduce it. For example, a license might allow the buyer to print 500,000 brochures with the purchased image. The amount of copies made is called the print run. The buyer is required to pay a fee per brochure, usually 1 to 3 cents, for additional prints. Magazines with a large print run cannot use a standard Royalty-free license and therefore they either purchase images with a Rights-managed license or have in-house photographers.

The big stock agencies like Getty and Corbis own the copyrights to many of the images they sell. There are other agencies like Alamy and Dreamstime, who sell on behalf of their professional photographers.

I am pleased to tell you that these agencies represent my work:

Product Photography Large or Small

Large Product Photograph of building exterior

Large product photography

Product photography comes in all shapes and sizes – large or small. This photo of Revco Products Incorporated building exterior is part of their project to update their website and promotional materials.

When photographing buildings one must be careful to maintain perspective. This can be accomplished by using a view camera (antique) with film (outdated), or using a lens for your DSLR with swings and tilts (yes, they to make them and they are very expensive). Or, you can simply correct it in Photoshop, as I did with this image.
