GHOSTLY PHOTOS:
At auction: These 1920’s photographs are credited to Craig and George Falconer, who conducted séances in which spectators were not only invited to watch a medium at work, but also the photographic process (loading film, shooting pictures, processing prints) and recording the visitation of a spirit. The brothers were arrested and convicted, in 1931, when two plainclothes policemen, who were posing as sitters, charged that "extras" (spirits) were actually photomechanical images and the cloudy ectoplasm was manipulated.

Mark Peterson -- Power of Social Media and Political Satire - Krystal Grow: “We spoke to Redux photographer Mark Peterson, whose candid and at times outrageous political photos have appeared on the Instagram feeds of MSNBC and GQ, and in print in the New York Times Magazine, New York Magazine, Fortune and TIME. Instagram, he says, offers endless opportunities to indulge in the unexpected. To wit: “One thing that was interesting was how the conventioneers wouldn’t walk in front of me when I was taking a picture but other photographers would just walk in front of me because they didn’t think I was covering the convention as a photojournalist. It made me even more invisible as a photographer in many ways and able to capture things spontaneously.” SOURCE: #LightBoxFF: Political Satire and Social Media with Mark Peterson - LightBox http://tinyurl.com/oemxuzg

How the Online Photo Galleries
Are Set to Make Big Money

Rohn Engh


Big Data has visited photography and liked what it saw.
In every digital photo you take, there’s valuable information. It’s called metadata. It doesn’t show up visually in your actual picture but it’s imbedded in the binary details of the image itself. It can tell the location of your photo, and picture-taking details such as the aperture and shutter speed. But most importantly, it can tell a lot about you indicates the subject matter you like to take: horses, skiing, boating, pets, children and so on. In other words, it reveals your preferences. Your photos are a footprint of your personal preferences.
If you are among the millions who make the internet a daily routine, you no doubt include photos in your online experience. Let’s talk about preferences. A good sales person will tell you that if you know the preferences of a potential customer –half the sales battle is won. If you don’t, you have, well, a cold call.
In the brick-and-mortar days of retail sales, the salesperson was at point zero upon greeting a new customer. Since much of retail sales have moved in the last decade to the on-line shopping model, (Amazon.com is smiling as I write), merchants are discovering they can learn the shopping preferences of customers without meeting them in person.

Here’s how it works. To take a simple example, Netflix. They stream their movies to your computer or you receive them in your postal mailbox. After you’ve been a happy customer for awhile, they politely ask you to rate your previous movies through a 5-star system. These ratings become your preferences and are catalogued in the Netflix databank. It guides Netflix to suggest other movies in the same vein of your preferences. If you like Westerns, they suggest more. If you follow Law Enforcement, they suggest choices in that genre. And if you like Nature movies, they have a ton of them to suggest. It keeps you renting more. Everyone is happy.
So what’s the big deal? I’m not revealing any big secrets here; this is Big DATA at work and has been around the past few years. Netflix provides other retailers with your preferences and other details about you that you have agreed, in writing, to provide them. What? You ask. How?
By providing a merchant, such as Netflix, with your preferences, you are revealing areas where you will shop. These may be hobbies, vacations, lifestyle and so on. If you like War movies, it means you lean towards subjects like history, conflict, politics, geography, travel, the military, guns, rifles, and so on. There are many companies that sell products in these areas. They would love to know they are sending their mailers, promotions, catalogs, or on-line pitches to potential customers who welcome them.
Big Data has narrowed the selling process down to aiming at the right target, and in the process, avoiding waste and cost. Sounds all good, doesn’t it? Except Netflix is in the minor leagues when it comes to collecting data about you and capitalizing on it.
A THIRD MAN THEME
TWITTER, the airlines, Nintendo, Pinterest or Instagram are Big Data partners, which retailers call “third parties,” who collect information about you in return for the fun services they provide for you; or the Frequent Flyer miles Delta Airlines provides you to answer a questionnaire. Wouldn’t a lot of retailers love to know you’ve been to Disney World every January for past three years?
So let’s talk about photography. How do photos fit into this picture?
Recently, a stock photo agency, GettyImages, (Seattle), has discovered the treasure trove they have in their data base of photos. Remember, digital photos can contain vast amounts of information about photographers and their doings. GettyImages has announced it is offering 35 million of its editorial images free-of-charge to anyone who would like to use them on any website or blog. These were images that were selling for $5 to $50 in the past. What’s the deal?
GettyImages has designed an Embed tool around the image that you might select for your blog or website, that embeds their logo, and, of course, important metadata about the website, or blog owner (you), the location, the photographer, the caption material, and other technical data. The company reserves the future right to include advertising, also, either from them or a “third party.”
Example: Your website needs a golf photo. You don’t want to pay a normal $60 annual fee that most stock photo agencies will charge. You select a professionally-produced picture from the
GettyImages site. In the transaction of acquiring the image from the GettyImages site, you provide information about you and your site. GettyImages now, legally, transfers this information about you and the focus of your site to its Big Data subsidiary, which, for the sake of illustration, let’s give it a mythical name: AJAX Data.

BIG MONEY FROM BIG DATA
AJAX, will now morph over into the direct mail business. It will offer this golf preference information to all sorts of retail companies that provide golf clubs and equipment, gloves, training courses, carts, grass mowers for greens and so on. It will also barter with other similar golf data marketing companies to fatten out its golf sector with private information about you and your website.
“Location is one of the most revealing pieces of information about you,” says Julia Anguin, who has written a book on the subject of data brokering, “Dragnet Nation.” She offers tips to keep the location of your mobile devices and web browser private. Making photos and sending them throughout the internet opens an immense platform for data brokers to study and capitalize on.
Is this fair? Yes, the Big Data companies think so. So do TWITTER, the airlines, hotels, web browsers and most all of the social media companies, because they offer their “rewards” and fun service to you free, in return for information you provide on their application form, discount cards, phone calls, or motor vehicle application.

How do data brokers make their money?
They rent your name to a retailer. A current, up-to-date mailing list rental name goes from $1 to $5 per name. The cost varies according to the target market. Jewelry buyer names, for example, would rent for more than model train hobbyists. The data broker handles the mailing of a retailer’s promotion or program and delivers (postal or email) to that portion of their list that matches the customer’s target sector the market place. The renter doesn’t see your name or the dossier about you. It only watches the excellent results of the promotion.
Another activity of the data brokers: They can make equal trade of names with other companies that have corresponding data points (subject matter) and integrate the names and added details into their own data set.
Another way they make their money would be if they sold your name. But that would be rare. Any child who has set up a summertime lemonade stand knows it’s not a good idea to sip away your own lemonade. But if a data broker decides to quit the business and sellout, your name goes along with the rest of the company’s dossiers to the new buyer. So much for free enterprise.
When you join an online social network and accept a “reward” or coupon from an online company, or sign up for something that’s ‘free’, you are in effect trading your name for their delightful offering. I could say, ‘Read the Terms and Conditions’” of each of the online internet companies you deal with…” –but no one ever does. If you were to do that, you would learn they all seem to be written by the same law firm. It all boils down to three main stipulations: 1.) They can use your information for their own promotions and also share your information with any ‘third party’ they choose. 2.) If you write (or place a video) on their site (premises) that might be construed to be defamatory or illegal, -you pay the court costs, not them. 3.) If they supply your information for a joint promotion or program to a third party anywhere in the world, they are not responsible for any negative consequences. Buyer beware.
The online photo agencies like GettyImages, stand to reap the benefits of the cyber world. Big Data has arrived. Many photo agencies as well as retail stores will find more profits from data marketing than fromtheir original core product. Getty Images, by offering 35million free editorial photos to the world, has a bright future. Thirty-five million is a nice number to work with.

So it’s up to you if you want to take the risk and use a GettyImages photo, or the benefits of Instagram, or any of the upcoming social sites or sweepstakes give-aways that are sure to appear on the horizon. –RE
