Different things to different people, by Greg Tingle
Tingle (Media agent, promoter, journalist, community
entrepreneur and sometimes photographer)
is different things to different people.
it's about the snap of a lens, or the flick of a button,
capturing a moment of time, but there's so much more.
the author of this very website, Media Man Australia,
its about the old cliche....a picture tells a thousand
is also about promotion. In media and PR circles,
a photo next to a well known "celebrity"
can be money in the bank, and guaranteed publicity.
in Australia, beautiful Bessie Bardot, agent, model
and more, is arguably the queen of the publicity show.
Her photo with Richard Branson is unlikely to be forgotten
in a hurry. Heck, this author's photo with Max Markson,
head honcho of publicity company, Markson Sparks!
sure elevated my profile.
you have the folks who treat photography purely as
art (down with digital photography).
your take on photography, one thing is certain; it
is one of the most powerful and influential media's
of all time.
