Hi everyone.

I feel that I’m somewhat behind with news here at my The Complete Picture site but that’s because I’ve been really busy with taking my project PolePics live. 

If you’ve ever wondered how birds see the world then this project is from you! Lots of information is arriving over on the dedicated polepics website. More importantly, especially in these tough economic times, if you want to use images to drive business to your business then this service is for you!

Memorial Hockey Tournament

leave a comment »

Hello Everyone.

My photographs of all the action at the Richard Scruby Memorial Tournament are now on line and avaliable to purchase.

Please click HERE or on ANY PICTURE  to go to the gallery

5×7’s are $10 each, that includes the tax, and will generate approx $5 of proceeds per image for the trust fund. A number are also off to a local newspaper.

 

The Winners

The images are arranged as best as possible in team groups, although by nature of the sport many shots have players from both teams. I do have many more images so if you do not see yourself then ket me know and I can check my files.

The easiest way for me to manage any purchases is for each team to supply a list of requirements – each picture has a number below it – by the end of April and I can make the prints and hae them sent to you shortly afterwards.

Alternative sizes are possible, please contact me direct for details. Lets see if we can make a few more $ for the trust fund. 

Please feel free to comment below the pictures!

What is a pole*pics

leave a comment »

Hi everyone.

Last weekend we opened the doors to our pole*pics website and we’ve had a lot of hits! While we let Luksa finish off manufacturing North America’s most advanced pole camera system, we’ve been busy at the pole*pics studios. In order to perfect our computer controlled camera capture and work flow, we’ve created the pole*pics simulator – I told you this project is fun!

Check out the full story on the polepics.com website, but for the time being here is a real image from a simulated pole*pics assignment!

All the best, Steven

Hi

Today is very exciting in the development of my major business venture. The name you chose  is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. And naming my pole photography business has been consuming much of my time – to date it has been living under the project title of ‘Aerial Advantage’ 

Today with the help of the Adman, my marketing provider, we discussed various naming ideas.  It must be Short, Punchy and memorable. It is really useful if no-one else is using the name already too. It must communicate the business, have logo potential and for the website  .com should be available too. Finally it must comprise of no more than 2 syllables, i.e. two short words. At first I thought “not-poss” but the Adman was ahead of me and thankfully provided a matrix of possible combinations. 

I looked at this and thought of a few more before reading his favourite – pole*pics  – my goodness me, the AdMan is a true genius.

…is the title of a recently published article in a specialist Ontario newspaper called ‘School Advocate’. As it’s name suggests it centred around education and is published quarterly. 

My assignment was to cover the RCMP Musical ride from an educational aspect and required both photography and also text. The event is very dynamic and I decided to use two cameras, one with the Nikons classic reporting lens, the 28-70 f2.8 G and the other with the 70-200 f2.8 G VR. Two images were eventually used, one two support article and another was used as a thumbnail on the front page. 

‘Story, Story, Story!’

Journalistic imaging is different from fine art in the pace at which things are required. However ‘Story, story, story’ is critical in grabbing attention, along with image quality that comes from good technique and equipment. The first image, from which a thumbnail was used, shows why it is worth hanging about after the main event for a few moments!
