Making Billions Of People Into Photographers

“…we currently upload and share 1.8 billion photos every single day. For the most part, these photos are not designed to document an occasion. They have become a visual shorthand that is at once more emotionally resonant and more efficient than the words I might once have used to express the same ideas. This shift in the nature of communications will have a substantial effect on culture, business, and politics. It’s already reshaping entire industries from advertising to journalism to fashion. It’s powering political campaigns and will help decide elections. It’s changing the American approach to foreign diplomacy. It’s redefining art and our relationship with the cultural institutions that embody it.” – Future of the Image

Getty Images Now Giving Out Free Photos

This represents Getty throwing in the towel when it comes to non-commercial use of its images. They’ve lost this war, and rather than fight the hoards of people on the Internet who pull their images without watermark or credit and use them all over the place, Getty has created a legal use avenue that they believe will “benefit their content creators.” Full story at PetaPixel – Getty Images

Air Canada Baggage Handlers Caught In Action

By Jack English
When I was flying anywhere I would always go with two carry ons – my Canon 600mm inside a Lightware bag and my bodies, lenses and laptop inside a Tamarac bag. International flights I never had to worry about these bags being to big, but any domestic flights almost every airline has very strict rules on one bag only allowed to carry on in which had to meet size and weight guidelines. When I was checking in they would ask “how many carry ons” and I would always say, “one”. Then once to the gate when my section was being called I would always begin to worry – trying to sneak my second bag on board. I would have my 600 over one shoulder and always have that bag in between myself and the lady I had to hand my boarding pass to. On the other shoulder I would have my Tamrac bag on, but have it more so behind my back and out of sight. 9 times out of 10 this always worked, but on a few occasions I was pulled aside and told I would not be able to bring both bags onto the plane and that one needed to be checked in. I would then go into details explaining I am a professional photographer carrying over $30,000 worth of gear and I cannot afford to have some baggage handler carrying it.
