If you're a photographer who posts photos on the internet, chances are someone is using them without your permission, or in a way that you did not authorize. Unless you can find your photos being used, though, you can't do anything about it. That's where Pixsy comes in. Pixsy is a new service that searches the web for your photos, and, with your permission, seeks payment from infringers. I've already received payment for my first case, and I am about to receive payment for my second case. How much payment you receive depends upon the use of the photo. Here are a few things to know about Pixsy:

2014 brought me many photo opportunities. From my annual visit to Walt Disney World in February to my trip to California in July, and photographing all around Saratoga Springs and upstate New York throughout the year, I had a lot of photos to choose from when rounding up my 25 best photos of 2014. It was hard to narrow it down, but after gathering nearly 50 of my favorites, I was able to whittle the list down to 25. Here are my best photos of 2014:

Ideas 1, 8, 12, and 27 in action.
Ok, the ball has dropped, the new year has arrived, and now what? Well, surely you made some photography-related resolutions, didn't you? I really hope you did, but if you didn't, I've compiled a list of 40 ideas and resolutions for you to apply this year. Certainly you won't have time to try all of them, but pick three or four and really work hard at them. Then, next year you can scratch a few more off the list.

As 2014 comes to a close, I have a few things to share with you. The first is this list of my favorite photography-related blog posts from this year. The next will be my favorite photos of 2014 (from my own collection), coming in the next few days. Following that, I'll share my favorite photography milestones from 2014.

Just last month, I hit a new milestone in my photography: my photo is on the cover of a book! The Unofficial Guide Color Companion to Walt Disney World is, as the title suggests, a full color guide to the happiest place on earth, published by Touring Plans. A number of my photos taken around the parks and resorts appear on the cover and inside the book. What's more, I'm in good company. Some of my favorite Disney photographers, including Tom Bricker, Cory Disbrow, Matt Pasant, and Joe Penniston, all have photos in the book as well. My interest in photography first grew out of admiring photos taken around Disney World by these artists and others on Flickr, so it was an honor to have my work featured alongside theirs.
