Comments on: Yes, my job really is this glamorous What makes a great picture?

As for sitting in the rain only to experience another disappointment,it could be worse. You might have pursued wedding photography. Anyway…
I’m contacting you to ask permission to use your photo of “Keith” the toilet snake in an amateur video. I presume you know there are two versions online. One has excellent detail, the other looks like Keith’s head has melted. I would like to use the former. I can easily grab a copy online, and I’ll be sure to include your byline. The video, by the way, is entitled “Feminine Protection” or “The Worst Thing In The World” and is about creatures, usually rats, that appear in peoples
toilets. (aka loos) A fun topic with a hint of Orwell’s room 101. fchemel at (Please ‘fix’ the email address.

I ask myself why do I pursue photography when I’m wet and cold, wrapping my camera and lens with cellophane, or drenched in sweat eyes stinging. The answer is, I am only as good as my next great shot. I am completely addicted to the adrenalin rush I get when I know I got the shot.

By: codyfutures Fri, 24 Sep 2010 00:40:43 +0000 Incredible photographs!

I for one, admire the tenacity it must take to work in such adverse conditions, especially with thousands of dollars worth of gear in peril.


Well yes, probably at times, however one must accept the good with the bad. Thank you for showing us both sides of the coin.
