The collection

This is the Poem of a Cacophonous City. It is a collection of film images that represents the noise and clutter of Nagoya, a major city in central Japan. It is inspired by a friend of mine, a lady who is twice my age, but she really loves poetry, and is so deep into it, it is astounding at her insight into language and the visual poetry I see in my head when I listen to her read or perform her work. Subtitles for each image also connote a particular aspect of cities. Here is the first blogpost on this collection: POTW: Poem of a Cacophonous City.

How bloggers can get discounts for instant photo downloads

Yes, you can:

  1. Use coupons for discounts.
  2. Instantly download photos.

You can, but no you don’t have to wait for me to answer emails, offer quotes, await your reply for which photos you want, pay a USD$10 order surcharge, and wait for me to email the photos. Also, remember I’m in the Japan timezone, and so there are the delays caused by wake-sleep patterns of you and I.

It’s quicker, cheaper, and easier to purchase via my PhotoShelter portfolio. Here are the steps:

1. Choose the photo, click “Buy”

2. Bloggers, teachers, and private individuals choose “Personal Use”

3. Choose your size. These days most images look better at a larger size of about 800 to 1000px, but eventually that will soon be too small. Think long term, be safe and avoid the old and dowdy look of having images that will be too small. So, most people will choose the 1500px option.

4. Continue shopping. Usually, there is a minimum purchase requirement, and so you might need to purchase at least one more image.

5. Check out. Once you’ve got your second purchase, click “Check Out”

7. Order Summary & confirmation. Click on the “I have read the blah blah blah”. Here you will see the total price. You also have two options. 1. Use PayPal, or 2. Use your credit card using the secure PayPal system. I do not see or store any of your credit card information, ensuring good security for you.

8. PayPal will take you from here. I’ll admit that I don’t remember what happens next, but I assume after the PayPal process, you will be directed back to a page and a button that says “Download” for the ones you just purchased. I do see some details of website activities, and so I can help if you come unstuck somewhere. If you have have any problems, please contact me.

Photos for Personal Use – for cheap

Did you know that bloggers and personal website owners can get high quality photos for cheap?

The problem: Some people don’t understand that photos are free to look at, but not free to take and use; like food at a buffet, free to look at, but not free to take. Photos for commercial or editorial uses can cost anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars to tens of thousands. Pricing depends on the distribution and the size of the audience, and many other factors. However, this means that many bloggers mistakenly believe that high quality images are too expensive, and so they steal the images instead. This means that many bloggers have had infamous take-down notices issued, had their web accounts closed by their website hosts, and social media accounts closed. Also, many bloggers have faced expensive legal action with real lawyers in real courts, with real judges, and real prosecutors.

The How: JapanesePhotos.Asia instead provides a personal solution, for personal bloggers and personal website owners. Purchase cheap licenses for your personal use, not for redistribution or resale; for in perpetuity. JapanesePhotos.Asia has multiple options for many different types of buyers and uses. For personal uses, go to the JapanesePhotos.Asia PhotoShelter portfolio, and browse for what you like, click on the green buy button, and choose your license, go to the Downloads tab, and choose Personal Use; and you’re all set.

Why the cost? The model in the image above costs money. She’s a great and professional model, and we worked with a great make-up artist; all of this costs money. How much do you earn per hour, and consider they need to be paid too? It took about a day of work to make that image above, and I’m competing against tens of thousands of great images, so each sale is important for cost recuperation. If you really do value an image enough to want it, please value the time and effort too, so that I can make more great images in the future.

One more thing: Occasionally I do have discount offers, please look out for coupons.
