Stock photo – Voir le potentiel

Cleveland Police badge

Photographier pour du stock photo, c’est l’art de voir le potentiel de vente d’une scène ou d’un élément banal, et de savoir ensuite ajouter les bons mots clés (keywords).

J’ai récemment passé 5 jours dans la Capitale Nationale pour garnir ma banque d’image de photos d’Ottawa. Par hasard, je suis tombé sur des policiers se préparant à parader en l’honneur de leurs pairs mort en devoir. Il y avait des corps de polices de partout au pays. J’ai passé un bon deux heures à photographier les badges, les voitures, les motos, etc. De grandes photos qui seront dans mon portfolio? Non. Mais de l’argent dans mon portefeuille? Bien sûr. Déjà deux de vendu.

With all the scandals, accusations and what not, I was called to cover politics a lot in the last few days. Here are some of the stuff I did.
