Hosting your Domain Name URL at Photographers.com – Instructions

There are 2 steps to get your Domain Name/URL running on the Photographers.com SiteBuilder server.

(NOTE: You must be subscribed to one of our Plans that say’s “At Members Domain Name-URL”).

1. First go to your Member Management Section:

MANAGE MY WEBSITE–>Setup My Own Domain Name.

Enter your Domain Name and submit it, so we can get started on the process of setting it up on our server.

NOTHING will happen with this first step until you also complete step #2, and your Domain will remain exactly where it is.

2. Go to your Domain Registrar and point your “A Record” to our server’s IP address:  72.251.195.146

As soon as we validate your Domain Name Submission and you point your Domain Name to our server, it can sometimes take as little as 15 to 30 minutes for your site to be running on the Photographers.com SiteBuilder Server.

Following are sample instructions on how to do this if your Registrar is GoDaddy.

The preferred method is to only point your Web Traffic (http www) to our servers, while leaving your eMail and other services at your current registrar. This gives you the most control of your eMail, through your Domain Registrar – such as the ability to add additional eMail accounts as you need them.

Here is an example of how to do this with the Registrar http://godaddy.com by just pointing to our servers IP address without changing your current NameServer entries.
A.Godaddy–>List of “All my Domains” or “Manage My Domains”: Member should see a list of all of his Domain Names
B. . Click on the Domain Name (It should be a blue link)
C. Click the link for TOTAL DNS–>Total DNS Control
D. At the top of the next page you should see a section for “A (Host)”
E. Over on the far right below “Actions” is an ICON of a piece of “Paper & a Pen” that you should click on
F. On the next page where it shows “Point to IP Address” you should replace the current IP address, with the Photographers.com Server’s IP address of: 72.251.195.146 – then click the “OK” button.
G. You will be returned to the Godaddy Overview section where you will again see the section for “Total DNS”
H. You should now see TOTAL DNS–>”ARecord @ 72.251.195.146″
Using this method your site is usually active with us within 15 minutes.
Many Domain Registrars have the same ability for “control of the IP Address your Domains Web traffic can be pointed to”. We suggest you check your Registrars help documentation, or contact their live support.

Facebook/Instagram New Policy Allows Them To Sell Your Photos With No Compensation to YOU. – It’s back again !

I can’t believe after Instagram posted this new policy of “THEIRS” a few weeks ago, that spits in the face of Copyright Law and the fact that the right to use a photo or license certain rights can only be given by the creator/owner of the image and MUST BE GIVEN IN WRITING on an image by image basis. They reversed this offensive policy within a day or 2 last time and now they are trying to slip it by AGAIN. Unbelievable and ABUSIVE!!! This really say’s something about the “ethics of Instagram, it’s Executives, and it’s Policy Makers”!

From the Blog of Daniel J. Cox -

A couple of days ago Instagram’s New & Improved Terms of Service plot to steal our photos was brought to my attention. I was alerted to the completely useless new language by PhotoBizCoach Beate Chelette’s excellent blog. So I wrote a blog post of my own titled Instagram’s New & Improved Policy To Steal Your Photos. I posted a link to that blog post on our Natural Exposure’s Facebook page. Then to make sure it gained the attention it deserved, I took out a Facebook ad for $15.00 to advertise the post on Facebook. So today I got an email from Facebook telling me the following:

Hi Daniel,
One or more of the ads you set up do not meet our guidelines and has been disapproved. 
Please check your Ads Manager and edit any ads that have been disapproved. Your account was not charged for ads that were not approved. 
Reason(s): 
Before resubmitting your ad, please visit our Help Center for additional information and examples compliant with our Advertising Guidelines. 
For more information, please read our Terms of Use and Advertising Guidelines. 
When I realized which ad they were declining, or I should say CENSORING, I about doubled over in laughter thinking this was the best kind of advertisement I could have ever hoped for. So everybody please do me a favor and SHARE this blog post with as many people you can think of. Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t want everybody to know. Like I said in an earlier post, for now it’s Instagram’s new Terms of Service. If this goes through without people screaming like crazy they’ll be doing the same with Facebook pictures. Help me tell the world, especially on Facebook since they CENSORED our ad. Let’s tell the world. Thanks for your help. You can see my original blog post titled: Facebook/Instagram’s New Policy Allow Them to Sell Your Photos With No Compensation To You. Now go get crazy and SHARE this post.

Bob Greenberg “It’s time for creators of intellectual products (such as photos) to band together and let Instagram and Facebook know they can not further enrich themselves with what I personally consider theft. It’s the same situation that exist in so much of Corporate America: set the playing field up so the Rich get Richer, at the expensive of nearly everyone else. And, with Instagram this is not only abusive to Americans, but with all people world-wide!”

The surreal photography of Photographers.com Member Renata Ratajczyk

Gothic style portrait of a young woman

Besides being a photographer for many years, Renata Ratajczyk considers herself a photo-illustrator.

She loves illustrating ideas and depicting imaginary worlds full of mysterious, mythological beings, fantasy landscapes, alien worlds and other ethereal realm that often just seem to dwell right beside our reality. She also likes to depict emotions – to look inside into one’s soul to show who they really are, or maybe who they would like to be in their dreams.

Renata has always bees interested in mythology, ancient worlds and cultures, as well as in the subconscious mind and emotions, which interests were later strengthen by her Cultural Anthropology studies (she holds a Master of Art degree in this field).

Renata likes photographing people, with particular interest in concept photo-illustration, fine art portraiture, fashion and fine art nudes. She also likes photographing nature (“I always felt a strong connection with it”) and various interesting locations around the world.

In her own words: “Then I often use these travel and nature pictures as backgrounds for my creative concept illustrations. Many of my photographs and concept art images where published on book, magazine and music CD covers, as inside illustrations, in calendars, on greeting cards, or they were used in advertising and other publications. My goal and dream is to help more publishers and companies to illustrate their products and ideas.”

Member Chuck St. John shows the images you can make with your iphone!

Courtesy of “B-Metro Magazine” (Birmingham):

Power in Your Pocket

Photographer Chuck St. John blows open the myth that crummy camera phone images are your only option.

Few people carry cameras with them all the time but just about everyone has a phone… with a crummy camera in it. That is, until recently.

The iPhone and other smart phones have fairly decent cameras in them now. If you can work within their limitations, you can get some remarkable images from them

Helpful apps on the iPhone that I used for this feature are Hipstamatic, Best Camera, Shake Photo, Format 126, Perfect Photo, Picture Show and Photo Frame. Photoshop even has an app for that.

None of the photos in this feature were “massaged” in a computer. Everything was done on the phone using apps. So anyone can do this. —Chuck St. John

Brutally practical tips and tricks in a new photography manual:

Milan/Paris-based photographer and writer Enzo Dal Verme (who has shot

etc.) has decided to reveal some of his shooting tricks for an inside

pictures taken day by day? How do you manage local contacts? What
mistakes can be avoided?

The photographer provides a wealth of tips on what and how to shoot,
composition, light, post-production and everything needed to deliver
your work as a pro.

Techniques such as Motion Blur, Panning, Slow Sync Flash, Exposure
Bracketing and Fill Flash are explained. Sixty-eight pages of shooting
strategies made clear in behind-the-scenes episodes, and each chapter
is illustrated with photographs by Enzo himself.

The manual is designed to help pro photographers and inspire
photography novices eager to learn how to get the most out of a

Michel Tcherevkoff free lecture sponsored by DRPP and CANON USA’s Explorer of Light programs

DRPP and CANON USA’s Explorer of Light programs presents:  ”IN FOCUS”
The Art and Photography of Michel Tcherevkoff
Michel Working

Michel Working

When: Sunday,  November 14, 2010 ~ 1 to 5 pm
Where: Westchester Community College
75 Grasslands Road - Valhalla,  NY, 10595
Free! ~ Thank you Canon USA
Look at some of Michel’s Beautiful Photography
www.shoefleur.com
www.tcherevkoff.com/lingerie
www.tcherevkoffportfolio.com
www.tcherevkoff.com/butterflies
THE SEMINAR:
IN FOCUS, is an intense, fast-paced seminar, exploring the character, energy, and elements of Michel Tcherevkoff’s 30-year career and work philosophy.  Where do his ideas come from? How important is the Art Director? How has digital redefined creativity?  Using images that range from assignments to his recent art exhibitions and projects,  Michel describes his technique and professional history, from surrealism made without digital technology to his current digital photo-illustrations. “My seminar has a general format –  but nothing scripted – talking about photography is a little like explaining a joke – you either get it or you don’t – but what I can explain is the intention of the work…and how important it is that photographers/artists  be aware of what their creative intention is.  My intention is, and always has been, to be fresh.”
BIOGRAPHY:
“Safe is mind-numbing and boring,“ says Manhattan based artist/photographer Michel Tcherevkoff. “Being creatively risky stimulates the brain and keeps the work fun and fresh. I’ve always been led by my imagination which can be personally and professionally dangerous.” Tcherevkoff divides time in his Penthouse Loft between creating advertising in collaboration with clients and creating art for himself. “Whether an image expresses a client’s message or my own, I have to get out of the way and let my imagination and technique make the final statement. So far it seems to be working”.
“A long career gives me perspective to see that everything I’ve done has led me to where I am now. While I have been living an intense and creative life it seemed impossible that I was paving the road for today.  But here I am”.
Born in Paris to White Russian parents, Michel came to New York as a student in the late 60’s and decided to stay. He was hired as a photographer’s assistant for a couple of years before his images attracted the attention of an established agent who immediately launched Michel’s iconic work and career. In the past year alone, Michel has added more than 20 international awards for creative excellence to his collection, and has had his work exhibited in Museums in Paris, Belgium, Australia and New York.
