Perfect Gift For Your Farmer

You've always wanted a video camera with cows, right?

The famous USB Flip video camera now comes in high-definition with b/w cow photography design.

The Bovine Edition Flip MinoHD holds 60 minutes of HD-quality video on an internal 4GB hard drive and sells for a very economically stimulating $240.

Longevity Of A Golf Shot

We shot the above image for Hyatt on a shoot in Kauai back in 2004.  What you see is about 80% of a 110-degree panoramic image of Poipu Beach's stunning volcano-to-Pacific golf course.  I just recently stumbled Hyatt's website and was pleasantly surprised at the image's long shelf life on their Gold Passport golf-specific portal.  Considering the landscape hasn't changed in thousands of years, they can probably keep using that image for millennia to come.

The Kauai shoot was done with a total crew of 12 including client, agency, models, etc.  It was a large production that I'd love to see again sometime but I get the feeling resorts are a bit scared to invest marketing dollars at the moment.  Where do resorts sit on the necessity food chain?  Probably right next to resort photographers.

Undisclosed Leading Retailer

Nothing is more annoying than a photographer who feels compelled to drop the names of his clients, hoping that someone else's hard earned brand equity will suddenly rub off on him.  After all, if his work is good, the photographer should feel secure enough with himself...right?

I will tell you that we have been shooting interiors for a French retail client who is not known for being a low price leader.  There...that's all I'm going to say.
