This is the nature of the photo business (read the link on Corbis stock agency taking more from photographers) – big business folk making money off of their power and off of photographer’s emotions.
Just an update to let you know I have a new workshop/lecture event on my 2008 schedule:
Here’s the 2008 Summit link (for more info, to sign up, etc):
It’s going to be great weekend spent in one of the most beautiful coastal areas in all the world!
(Post-blog note: I now teach online with Perfect Picture School of Photography and love it- come and take a course sometime at PPSOP.com)
Check out one of my most recent magazine covers on Bay Nature magazine, shot on Angel Island State Park in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area here in Northern California. It’s a beautiful small island with wonderful views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate, the East Bay as well as the Bay Bridge. There are wonderful hiking trails around the island and you can best access it from Tiburon (a beautiful town 45 minutes north of San Francisco, near Sausalito).
If you’re interested in the magazine, here’s their site: http://www.baynature.com/

During my time in Chicago last September lecturing at the BetterPhoto.com summit, I was interviewed by a fellow BetterPhoto instructor and photographer Ibarionex R. Perello- an experienced pro who produces wonderful images of people.
Ibarionex interviewed me for his Podcast “The Candid Frame” and did an outstanding job creating a free-flowing 36 minute discussion about the photo business and my career in it!
This is our first Podcast for PhotoGuru and I hope you all enjoy it and look forward to many more.
Over the following months and years, I’ll be posting Podcasts on our upcoming television show “PhotoGuru with Sean Arbabi”, keeping you all up-to-date on our progress to get our show to the airwaves.
