Sami Sarkis Intro

Smiling businessman with platic toy guns on the beach, Provence, FranceBorn in Lebanon and living in France, I felt in love with photography around 12. Got my first slr a year later, a Canon AE-1, and never gave-up exploring all the fields of that Art!
Almost 40 years later, I’m still a professional photographer based in Provence. I focus on Underwater, Marine life, Environmental, Conceptual and Travel imagery, not only in France, but worldwide (>50 countries).

From my archives (100K+ photos), I have recently selected some great shots and reprocessed them specially for Fine Art printing which is a new and exciting market for me.

My artwork is available for licensing through my website – www.sarkis.com – or through major distributors: Getty Images, Agefotostock, Superstock, Alamy.

Rocky Mt. Elk [Cervus elaphus]
Light & Substance

Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth [Bradypus variegatus]“We are first and foremost nature photographers. We are not specialists in that we tend to capture images of what interests us, inspires us and surprises us, macros to landscapes, behavior to portraits and all of the wild. As a husband and wife team we collaborate of course but retain our own individual vision.

Our market has been the print media, calendars, books and magazines but we also produce custom prints here at home and use Imagekind.com, ArtFlakes.com, Photoshelter and AGPix.com to widen our audience. Several photo agencies represent our work worldwide and give us access to markets of which we would never have been aware.

Writing the occasional article also opens markets for our photo images. We prefer writing about locations or specific critters as opposed to technical information.

We hope our images and words promote an understanding of and more reverence for the natural world and our wild brethren.

Come to our website, view our images, read our blog and don’t hesitate to send us your comments, observations, requests or questions. We’d love to hear from you! ”

Cheers,

Simple and EAsy World Language Images

photoselec1There have been many attempts to find a world language everyone is speaking to make communication easy around the world. But none could really make it, because they were again words and grammar and spelling and our mind got already enough to digest every day. Will images be the solution and the future world language? Or maybe they are already. When we want to tell the family how our holiday was we post pictures onto the social networks and all our friends around the world will understand too that we had a great holiday, although they do not speak Spanish or French or Chinese.
Imagine a future scenario. School children have all access to the Internet and learn math through online platforms together with all children anywhere in the world. They communicate through images and teachers in the classrooms guide them through the process of learning in their own traditional language. They grow up bilingual, their traditional language and the “image language”, which actually nobody has to learn; it’s already there. It could be that they all wear Google Augmented Glasses and just look at a formula or an object and a whole bunch of children from China, Kenya, America and Portugal try together to solve the math problem. Or somebody wants to share what bothers him/her and does that with an image. Somebody else 10,000 km away sees the image and answers back with an image as consolation and support. The first person looks at it and is touched to tears, happy and grateful, sending back a thank you image. All without words, grammar and spelling, it’s all in the picture. We just need to use it consciously as a communication tool and not only for great travel offers, but for essential human communication to conquer globalization and growth. It’s time for innovation and it looks like the people are ready for it, only the technology needs to catch up.
Happy chatting or will we call it imaging?

Professional vs. Amateur Photographers?


Buy this picture
photoselecThe Olympics are coming and there have been already many controversial discussions on how the photography rights will be handled during the games. There were rumors that it will not be allowed to share images on social networks in the stadiums and photographers were prohibited to photograph the Olympic locations during construction. Well, this week came the news that only small cameras will be allowed in the stadiums and any camera or lens bigger than the allowed size will be confiscated, but there are no lockers to keep them, so they most likely will be gone when you come out. As a response a discussion spun off from both sides, professional and amateur photographers. The amateur photographers were upset that they cannot take their great equipment with them and the professional photographers were cynical, stating that with the allowed camera and lens size one still can take great images. What is this about?
The professional photographers who are the official photographers of an event make their living from photography, invest constantly in their business and often have to pay to be allowed photographing an event. For a big event as the Olympics photo and press agencies pay for the right to take photographs. They need to earn that money back by selling the images to the media and online platforms. That becomes very difficult when everybody in the stadium with a big zoom lens gets in the position to photograph the event as well. At such an event it’s not that much about the quality of the images, it’s more about catching a moment and being the first to have it on the Internet. It’s a race.
That race can be real fun for amateur photographers, but is very annoying for professional photographers. The professional is working there and does not have the time and energy to play a game with thousands of amateurs challenging him or her. It’s completely understandable that everybody wants to photograph the Olympics when being one of the lucky ones having a ticket. But just do it for your own and your friend’s fun and leave the professionals doing their job. All photographers share the passion for photography. Respect each other’s role in the photography world and learn from each other.
Imagine being an electrician, called in to repair a power failure and the head of the household is telling you how to do it, because he built his electrical miniature train system himself. He can be of big help by telling the electrician when the failure occurred, which machines were running at that moment and probably other relevant information, but the actual work needs to be done by the called in professional.
If the amateur feels the desire to become a professional, do it! Follow you heart and make your passion your profession and respect those who did that already.
