The CameraArts Store is now online!

The link to the CameraArts Store on our home page has dead-ended in an "Under Construction" Notice for too long. We have collected our book and CD products on one page, and have implemented the Paypal shopping cart tool to make it easier than ever to discover everything else that has to offer. We will be making lots of new additions in the future, and announcing them here before anywhere else!

With his new book, “Poser,” CameraArts publisher/editor, Tim Anderson has released a book that is aimed at artists and models alike, whatever their medium of pursuit: painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, or just plain sketching. With almost 100 “sketches” of models in a wide variety of poses, you will be able to see the basics of figure and nude modeling without all the clutter that usually accompanies posing books. The subject is approached in a manner that will enable you to utilize your creativity to take individual photography or other sessions wherever you want.

Scheduled for release April/May 2007, you can or now and get the pre-publication price of $19.95, including shipping. If you order before May 10, 2007, you will get “Poser” for the pre-publication price, and United States free shipping. The regular price of the book will be $24.95, plus shipping.

A Black and White Photographer proves digital and analog are not

Chip Forelli has created beautiful images in classic black and white for a diverse pool of clients and photography publications. His thoughts on the elements of the analog process, including darkroom manipulation and dye-dodging, have been published in the pages of CameraArts (February/March 2002, February/March 2003, and April/May 2004). He has just unveiled a new flash-based website, where you can view his work in a slide-show format.

On the site, Forelli offers his services to advertisers, commerical clients, and foundations that find his works desirable for promotional purposes. Forelli is certainly unusual in that he excels in traditional processes and employs them in creating amazing, dynamic images that many working in digital can't touch. He is also a pro at post-production, transferring his painstakingly crafted selenium-toned silver prints onto the computer screen, where all commercial photography lives.

A fine art photographer who has successfully branched off in many different areas, Forelli also lays claim to the role of educator, and has taught at the International Center of Photography in New York, the Cape Cod Photography Workshops in North Eastham, MA, and the Maine Photographic Workshops in Rockport. Hopefully, his impressive track record will keep growing in the years to come.

Calls for Entry—Buyer Beware, Part 2

For the last week, I have been going back and forth with a couple readers who are questioning the legitimacy of certain photography organizations, when it comes to Calls for Entry. The first thing one has to remember (and be aware of) is “buyer beware.” There are some entities that charge for entry into their competition. Of course, that is completely understandable. Whether or not you are in this business of photography to make money or not, it doesn’t do you (or anyone else, for that matter) any good to just throw your money into the air and hope it lands where it will do the most good.

I have been a professional writer for many years, and have had my submissions rejected for many years. My ego has been bruised enough. I don’t mind sending in money for submitting my work, photographically- or editorially-oriented. I don’t, however, like to throw my money into a pot that isn’t going to really do any good, for me or my work.

The bottom line is—do your homework. Ask questions. When you submit your work, you need to be sure that you are going to get your money’s worth, and that your photographs will get the attention (and respect!) they deserve.

Here are several guidelines to follow to make sure your work is received:

  1. Before you submit anything, begin a dialog with whomever it is you are intending to submit your work. Are they open and receptive? Do they welcome your inquiry? Do they answer your questions in a timely and professional manner? Do you feel comfortable talking with them?
  2. Check the address of the organization. Make sure there is either an email or contact phone number. That doesn’t mean you need to call them frequently, it just means they are legitimate and they put their information out there for everyone to see.
  3. Talk to your peers. Ask them if they have ever heard of (or submitted to) the organization. Just because there’s a .org at the end of their URL, it doesn’t mean they are a not-for-profit group.
  4. Contact past winners, which should be posted on the website of the group. A simple search should get you some results.
If you or anyone you know has had a negative experience with a call for entry, let us know.

Calls for Entry—Buyer Beware, Part 1

Here at CameraArts, we do our best to present accurate, up-to-date information on calls for entry, juried exhibitions, and other opportunities for photographers. Usually we don't use this site for announcements of this kind, because we try to keep our blog's appeal as broad as we can. We reserve most information of this kind for a special section on, as well as on our e-newsletter, FRAMES.

Usually we hear good things about the mix of articles and announcemnets in FRAMES. Sometimes, though, the opposite occurs. In a recent installment, we posted a link to the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA) and its juried exhibition. The bi-weekly format of FRAMES allows us to alert our readers of short-term opportunities that have "missed the boat" when it comes to our print publication.

Here's the entry from the February 7, 2007 issue of FRAMES:

Los Angeles Center For Digital Art (LACDA) announces an open call for their international juried competition featuring art and photography created through digital processes. Entrants should submit three JPEG files of original 2-dimensiona work. Forty spots are available for the exhibition, which runs March 9 to April 1, 2007. Entry fee is $30. Multiple entries are permitted. Deadline is February 18, 2007.

Essentially, entries like this boil down to title, the organization and juror(s), awards, requirements for entry (including fees), and, of course, deadline. For all of its simplicity, however, the LACDA entry created an unexpected response. Readers emailed us asking why we were associating ourselves with LACDA, and we heard some negative opinions about the organization. A post from Charles Eicher's blog, Disinfotainment, drew our attention. It's accompanied by a composite of images from one of LACDA's exhibitions.

From Disinfotainment:

I counted at least 250 images in this photo, and there are obviously more that extend beyond the edges of the picture. At $31.25 for each entry, that is a minimum of $7,800. The "gallery" is a single room, the image shows only one wall and a freestanding wall on the left that might have images on the other side, so it is possible this exhibit has 500 images, maybe more. That could be over $15,000 of profit! And Rex Bruce keeps all the money.

I decided to investigate Rex Bruce a little more, and unfortunately, this isn't the worst of the scam. Rex Bruce operates two of these shows each year, one is a "juried show" where a panel selects the works suitable for exhibition. But you must still pay a $31.25 entry fee, even if your work is rejected.

Eicher lays out all of the reasons for his disappoval of LACDA's exhibitions, but is unrelenting in his judgment of Becker for some aspects of the business that don't seem that unusual. The fact that Becker has exhibited his own work at his gallery doesn't suggest any shady dealings. Also, for all of the railing on this post, a visit to LACDA's site (and the exhibition in question) reveals the same images that Eicher has used in his condemnation.

LACDA seems to have been up-front about the facts. The only problem with LACDA's open and juried exhibitions is the short lifespan for a relatively high cost for each entry. However, one should always consider these numbers on a case-by-case basis. Consideration is a major part of entering these kinds of exhibtions, especially where money is involved. Tomorrow I'll be back with part 2, in which I'll speak more on the responsibilities of both the entrant and the organization.

Behind the Scenes with the Lucies and the IPA

While at the 2006 Lucie Awards and International Photography Awards (IPA) in November, CameraArts Senior Editor Mary Ann Lynch was able to get some exclusive interviews with the primary movers and shakers behind the two events. Now the full interview is available in the Web Exclusives section of Interviewees include Hossein Farmani, Founder and Chairman of the Lucie Awards, Event Co-Chair Susan Baraz, and Executive Producer Cat Jimenez.

Mary Ann has given us an insider's look at the unlikely beginnings and early hardships of what has become one of the most highly regarded awards ceremonies in the world of photography. Susan Baraz describes the trials of setting up an event like no other.

Everyone we initially spoke with was very suspicious of the “motives” behind the Lucies. It was difficult to convince some top people in the field that this event came about because of a pure love of photography and not for monetary gain. The Lucies is a result of passion for the art of the image, without any subterfuge. It was very hard in the beginning to convince people it was created out of Hossein’s love for the medium. I had many confrontations trying to “sell” this event. The people who at first, were the loudest critics, are now our biggest supporters.

Another anecdote is that we were told, in no uncertain terms, that you could never get photographers to wear “black tie” to anything. However, from that very first event, they did and up to today, look incredible.

Cat Jimenez was on hand to answer questions about the processes that the Lucies and IPA follow every year. Getting an event such as this to happen takes a lot of knowledge and drive, both of which the Lucie folks seem to have in droves. The efforts in marketing what essentially started as a labor of love sounds nothing short of monumental.

We’ve been wonderfully received over the years by the European photography publications and each year, interest in publicizing the winning images continues to grow. The US press have been both critical and kind to us in the past years but we’re happy to draw the media’s attention each year. And each year, the reception seems to get better. In 2006, publications from India to Turkey to Romania, Greece, Russia, and Great Britain have all done extensive features on the winning images of 2005 and 2006.

Farmani had many insights about his unique standing in the industry, fusing an entrepreneurial drive with his love for fine art photography, and the immense potential he sees in the future of the Lucie Awards.

We are working on having Lucie broadcast live so more people will get exposure to photography. I would like to see the names of all the masters become household names. Firstly, I want to make Lucie a financial success so it can sustain itself and be able to achieve its goal of creating an archive of documentaries about the life of our legends of photography. As I meet these photographers and hear their stories, I realize their stories are dying with them and I feel it is depriving thenext generation of this knowledge. I hope to produce documentaries that will forever record their stories.

It's always to be taken with a grain of salt when someone says they want to "make a household name," when these things are rarely in control of any one person. Considering Farmani's experience and business acumen, however, he might just be able to put the Lucie Awards in the spotlight, and make the event a true "Oscar Night for Photography."

Details are up for the next installment of the Lucie Awards. Click here to check it out.

CameraArts Table of Contents, March/April 2007

The table of contents for our upcoming issue of CameraArts Magazine, March/April 2007, has just been posted on Also, a new cover graces the blog and the home page. Carlos Tarrats, the photographer, captures otherworldly scenes without the help of photographic manipulation. Every object in his images is constructed on set before making it to film.

From the upcoming article in CameraArts March/April 2007:

"The elements of my photographs aren’t expensive pretty objects. Every thing comes from hardware and craft stores. On set, I distress everything. I use paint scrapers, sand paper, dirt, rocks, and metal tools to weather my subjects. Like in life, nothing is perfect, but taking these pictures reminds me how great imperfection can be. I feel it is important to remember that there is beauty in every situation. And it is the imperfect moments of life that have the most value."

Keep checking out The CameraArts Blog for more previews from the upcoming issue!

A Photoblogger breaks into books

Valerie J. Cochran, the Berkley, CA-based webmistress of your waitress photos, has just released her first collection of photographs in book form, titled your waitress | 2004 - 2005. It is now available through Blurb, a snazzy-looking print-on-demand site.

From the introduction to your waitress | 2004 - 2005:

The images in this book represent a stumbling reentry into photography that never had a clear goal or destination. all of the photographs and text originally appeared at the photoblog your waitress photos between 2004 and 2005. The text may be a shorter form of the original comments for the image, however any typos were not corrected. the photographs were all found with a 35mm camera, a 50mm lens, and various films. This book is dedicated to photobloggers everywhere.

It really is amazing to see such hard work pay off. One of the great things about being involved in the blogosphere is to see fellow writers take an active role in developing and marketing their careers. You never know what kind of projects and opportunities will spring from this "underground" approach!

CameraArts Preview: Christopher Felver

Chris Felver has become a trusted photographer to many who might be adverse to the camera, or at least very shy, especially where portraits are concerned. Felver brings a marvelous sensibility to a collection that has been decades in the making, instilling senses of comfort and familiarity in his images. Artists, poets, musicians, and counter-culture figures both famous and esoteric have been captured by Felver. In our upcoming March/April 2007 issue of CameraArts, Contributing Editor Michael more will take a closer look.

Until the magazine is available, you can check out his website and view his work, as well as an excellent Quicktime slide show presentation of images and memorabilia, much of it taken from Chris Felver's superb new book, Beat. Be sure to scroll down to see the video.

Felver has published six other books, including The Importance of Being, a catalog of more than 400 portraits. They include writers Ken Kesey, Allen Ginsberg, and Charles Bukowski; artists and musicians like Arlo Guthrie and Lou Reed; and photographers as well—Ralph Gibson, Ruth Bernhard, Arnold Newman a. I hope you enjoy Chis Felver's work as much as we have. Check out our next issue for the full story!

Benefit Photography Exhibition combines glamour and activism

London-based fashion photographer and filmmaker Rankin has created a series of portraits for the act campaign, a project to raise awareness of domestic violence started at the beginning of the month by Women's Aid, the UK's domestic violence charity. At a first look, the photographs depict women with bruised and battered faces, until one realizes that there are a few famous faces included. All of the women—including Anne Marie-Duff and Honor Blackman—are UK celebrities made up to look like victims of domestic violence. The images look very convincing, and get the point across.

From the Women's Aid website:

With Rankin's emotive pictures and Marian Keyes' empathetic text, our aim is to highlight the fact that it could and does happen to all types of women—regardless of class or education.

The images themselves are striking, but I can't help but be reminded of Nan Goldin's famous self-portrait, Nan one month after being battered (caution: horrific image ahead. But then again, that's the whole point). In Rankin's series, the women come across as noble and beautiful, despite the black eyes and split lips. In her self-portrait, Goldin's image is neither of these things, but its honesty and authenticity make it unforgettable. I understand the need to appeal to people's interest in celebrity, and it's great to see a glamour photographer embark on such a unique project for raising social awareness. We could all learn from Goldin, though, who exposes so much of what most of us would rather go on pretending doesn't exist.

You can view Rankin's gallery (even though the images are puny) here.

Wal-Mart Closes 500 Photography Studios

Ouch. It looks like you can't get just anything at Wal-Mart after all. I suppose it makes more sense for them to sell cheap digital cameras so that there's even less of a reason for people to leave the house, even for Wal-Mart. Better to get a chunk of change up front. Portrait studios are another of those old stand-by's, like butchers and bakeries, that don't fit into the chain's great formula for maximum profit.

From AP's article:

The 500 portrait studios, which lost $1.7 million in 2006, are a "drain" on the company, PCA said in court papers filed Friday...

Portrait Corp. of America and eight affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection on Aug. 31, 2006, listing assets of $153 million and debts of $372.1 million.

Is it me, or is anyone else reminded of The Borg?

Alerts on Rights for Photographers, especially where bikinis are concerned

A new blog,, was launched in February 2005 with the purpose of informing photographers about their rights. The webmaster, Carolyn E. Wright, Esq., has her own practice, the Law Office of Carolyn E. Wright, LLC, with a specialty on the law in regard to photographers. She shares her knowledge every week, and has started posting alerts of news stories that should be of special concern to anyone who is getting serious about photography. As everyone should know, being ignorant of the law is no defense for breaking it. Potential gray areas are always abound, though, which makes Wright's site all the more worth tracking via RSS. The first alert is from Morristown, New Jersey.

From the Morris County/New Jersey Daily Record's website:

The judge will decide if he should dismiss an indictment of two people—a boyfriend and girlfriend—for photographing the thighs and buttocks of women in various public places, including streets fairs and parades, in a number of Morris County towns. The couple was charged with invasion of privacy.


Note that the photographers were taking pics of women only as they could be seen by anyone (as opposed to the process known as "upskirting").

Good point. However, conventional wisdom dictates that permission should always be asked in a public setting. I would be a little more sympathetic to the photographer if he was going for crowd shots, or capturing women in motion. When the objective is to capture people moving in crowds, unaware of an external presence taking photographs, the situation gets complicated. Sure, you can get a few dozen or so women together, encourage them to act as if they don't notice you, and take a picture of the few who don't require some kind of compensation (I don't know about you all, but I sure can't afford to pay appearance rights or doctor's bills because of angry boyfriends).

It's apparent from this article (which is far less kind to the couple in question) that the focus was on the indivdual form.

From the Courier Post Online:

Kane allegedly told police he and his girlfriend found the photographs exciting and sexually gratifying. In a search of his apartment, police found two large shoe boxes containing thousands of photographs, many depicting females as young as eight years old to adulthood in public settings. They were clothed, but their thighs or parts of their buttocks were exposed to view because of the positions they were in when they were photographed.

Shock value, anyone? To be fair to the couple, the vagueness of this paragraph is exceeded only by that of this case. The photographer was cleared, but no one wants a mark like this on one's record. So please, ladies and gentlemen, shoot with some sense.
