LifegiantMediaGroup&LifegiantFilms, have refocused our Mission for 2016. Team LifegiantUSA have unanimously decided, to capturing the Best Images depicting, 'One Defining Moment'. Setting the photographic, 'Bar', as the Standard will elevate both our work quality, and your satisfaction. Every Artist that contributes as a Team member, has chosen this path on their own, embracing a Philosophy, 1st adopted by myself. I had my own, 'One Defining Moment', it's actually what finally pushed me to Found LifegiantMedia. We shoot for Social Media purely for exposure and to offer free downloadable Imagery for all supporters, our main effort has always funded Animal Rescue. As well expect these styles here: Street, Wildlife, Landscape, Architectural, Extreme/Surreal, + more. We cover Prof Commercial Campaigns, & Pro Sports, College Sports, & X-Sports Events/Athletes, but © Rights often becomes an issue, but we do offer Images in these areas, just not in the volume, as others. Enjoy, please respect NoCommercialUse on all, and no matter where you are, we travel anywhere to shoot, so just contact us.
Thanx & Cheers MJHacking Lifegiant!

Who put the Sparrow in the A?
Each year for the last 4 Ive tracked indigenous birds of NewEngland, their incredible ability to survive the cold, unique comfort interacting with mankind, and YES mating. As seen here I redundantly point out the nesting areas, IMVVHO, Major Stores could take more care so they dont nest in their signs. Many reasons persist, some argue it helps them, I'm not so sure.
I am sure that their Chicks can eat, as much as the Parents can bring them, as seen here 3 chicks with MOUTHS WIDE OPEN. I'm thinking Mom isn't pleased with me, (even using a 400mm lens), but I ended up with about 200 shots in a few minutes I had, which I will post the link to asap,(Editing 1000's a pics a day takes time), and I guarantee between both parents , 'foraging', 'Checking on the Chicks, Popping out to see if I was watching', and even Dad taking some close flyby's on my position, there will be plenty to view.
I'm a Conservationist, above all, not so much a Bird Shooter, keep that in mind when pondering the compositions, its tough to glorify a nest filled with chicks, surrounded by a giant red A,(Without Photoshop-but then my point gets lost. Cheers Lifegiant

Adobes Creative Suite has been a great fit for us at LifegiantMediaGroup, especially with the mobile app integration.When the iPadPro was released along with Apple's Pencil, Adobe was quick to update their apps for full function with both. Higher reso, along with powerful graphics and the best stylus integration, IMHO, make iPadPros great portable solutions for editing, marketing presentations, client Image Reviews, etc. It all spells a winning combination, which I'm lucky to have in my Team as well. It's not easy creating an abundance of awe striking images, while servicing existing numerous Comm Accounts, to keep up with social media. The photo I chose as an example is one photo that exemplifies my thoughts. Apple uses popular images very similar images in Wallpapers, which in cases can be a great Stock Photo resource in making income. Skylines, deep blue cloud filled skies, are great for those huge landscapes when there was, 'no sky' that day. All in all staying relevant, current, and in the black, is all encompassing to say the least. In the black, is the theme, it's a simple technique, but when the right subject, here my Wife chose a Tiger Lily quite well,(The fact it was part of my studio landscaping, even better), and a 5 min edit to post, is a winning combo ! It is that very thing, failure to give in to defeat, is what makes our Company able to survive. We've grown and with Lifegiant Films, without a real budget yet, LGM is bigger than a small business, and too undercapitalized to become a Wheelhouse quite yet. It's these moments in a business life that determines the truly, 'Savvy' business minds from those a bit over their head. We'll see, but I have a pretty good track record, and support is comin back around, SO THANX TO ALL.
BTW ANNOUNCEMENT, after mo's off from hand surgery I'm determined to jumpstart this community, I've built Magazines, Profiles, Communities, and Forums all exceeding my expectation. This community needs my focus, and I'll give it. I'm incorporation PhotoProPlus, Insider- A Gear and Techniques collection dedicated to showing how to get better faster, and how to acquire the Gear essential to real photo work, at about 1/3 Rd the price. Yup 1/3rd, I learned this out of instinct starting with direct refurb purchases from manufacturers, (If anyone thinks I'd pay $700+ for a tripod, when the design is simple and materials + Fabrication costs are a phone call away, their crazy! Possessing good infiltration skills is easy, doing it is where people fail, out of fear. Nowadays Amazon saves me the trouble on most items, more on all this next post!!). Enjoy Tiger Lily! Lifegiant!

    I can think of many, ares of focus, I use to Get Inspired. Artists in general, especially one's I hold in high regard, well they hold a special key. They become Human when they tell about their own experiences. Blogging, Vlogging, making Videos, even if just for 'fun', can move mountains to help you aspire to Inspiration. +The VonWong IMVVHO, can be no more energized, but in a way that transfers to others, and THAT is what makes true Artisans. As I prepare for the foundation of this Community, and thought to explode, I'll be adding content like this to get people ramped up!, so enjoy!!

I teach & Mentor both Photography & Business , Advanced Business Analytics ,(as well as the business of Photography). We all already knew that though. But, as I have more sayings than a Cowboy from GiddeUp to Woah on a 5 mile Ride. Let's begin
INSPECT what you, EXPECT. Leadership is far more important than nearly any other tool you have in business. True Excellence as a Leader can't be Taught, Bought, Begged, Stolen, or Learned for 90%, of the,' Roll your Sleeves up, dig In & get It Done, Tell you what a client wants, B4 you sit down to TELL HIM/HER there 'wishes ', much to your wild eyed amazement. Pure - MindBenders- always in control, of the most Elite Ethical & Precise Work Standard..., Managers of real VERACITY!
I mean guys that in Exactly 12 Months to the day, leave their current position, & w/ no prior knowledge move to Insurance, Annuities, Life,Health, Accident(which licensing is 30-60 days. Still they not only succeed, they become the top , sales , Mgr, DistrictMgr, in every category every MONTH, & maintain a 93% pull through. & 90% persistency on the must a tad shy of, ONE MILLION $ in Policies. Oh, doing all of this on a BET!!!!
That friends is something to see, & soon my new Training Series will be avail on Podcast, incl a few interviews I did w/ music Artist etc.
So start getting pumped!!!!

    This follow up Article by, +Annie Tao, is an excellent review of the careful thought process AND the actual analyzation of what elements, specifically, draw a viewer IN. Its a great read and a must for learning how to, 'KNOW', a shot when it appears before your lens!

   Starting points.  The very essence of Creativity, as well as, the Inspiration behind that process(as we are devoted to delving INTO), is essential. DPS, a great resource for all Photographers, offers some unique insight into this subject.
