Around the web today: October 16th, 2013.


Quite a few photographers have made the transition to shooting videos as well as photos in the past few years. Here are some good tips from a video editor's perspective, regarding everything from shooting b-roll footage to effectively creating a story from a bunch of clips: http://fstoppers.com/become-a-better-videographer-shoot-like-a-video-editor


A mud hole 4x4 recovery doesn't quite go as planned: http://blog.powerblocktv.com/mypowerblock-bumper-comes-off-truck-being-pulled-out-of-the-mud/


A little off topic, but a good read here about an Irish man living without money, a few years after completing a business and economics degree, managing a large food company and buying a yacht:  http://worldobserveronline.com/2013/10/04/man-lives-without-money/

ABC's Media Watch program ran a story last night on an issue that raised some ire among photographers when it was announced last month; Tennis Australia requesting job applications from sports photographers to shoot the Australian Open in Melbourne. Which doesn't sound bad in itself, but despite a long list of what they're looking for, including experience in photography, your own equipment, in-depth knowledge of tennis,  a strong portfolio of sports images, and what looks like dawn-to-dusk working hours for two weeks, the positions are those of unpaid volunteers:  http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s3868825.htm

Here's a screen-cap of the actual ad on seek.com.au. Which is pretty ridiculous; any takers would be essentially paying to 'work' for Tennis Australia, a large corporation with revenue of roughly $200m a year.

On the other side of the coin, a post from a photographer ridiculing a model for wanting to charge for her time: http://zarias.tumblr.com/post/63957645975/models-rates-i-contacted-a-local-model-for-portfolio
