An interview with BKWine Photography on the Daminion blog

To keep track of and organise one’s pictures is important but not always easy. I have some 130,000 photo in my archive. With that I don’t remember it all. The shoe-box method is not sufficient. (Does it still exist in the digital age?) You need a cataloguing program, a so-called DAM, Digital Asset Management system. […]

Inspiring wine pictures and ten wine photo tips

Sometimes people talk about food porn referring to photographs you see in those really fancy glossy magazines. There are some food blogs that also have very good pictures. But most blogs have pictures of a “variable” quality, not least wine blogs. I do not think I have ever heard someone talk about wine porn (at […]

A wine blog to visit: Svenssonsmakaren

Bear with me for just a little bit. I am not crazy. Svenssonsmakaren is a Swedish wine blog but I do recommend that you go there and take a look. It is not easy to make pictures of wine bottles or glasses (or food), especially not if you are at a wine tasting or dinner. […]

BKWine Photography featured on Photoshelter’s blog

One new wine picture every day (well, almost), that’s the theme of our Wine Picture Blog. Sometimes the photos are quite ‘serious’ (e.g. illustrating how pumping-over is done in the wine cellar), other days they are more light hearted. The photo blog is a way for us to market our wine stock photo library (that […]
