Surviving Sports PhotographySports photography.
This category of photojournalism is one of the most sought after positions in professional photography. VIP access to pro athletes, frontline seats, locker room interviews, and a paycheck to photograph the whole experience year after year?!!

Well, that's how my story began anyway. Years ago, I made the mistake of going to a pro hockey game and within three hours fell madly in love with the smell of ice and the sound of blades. I left the building thinking to myself (and telling anyone who would listen to the ravings of a madwoman): "There has to be some way I can be involved in this for the rest of my life." What actually happened after that night is one of the wildest stories I've ever told and it's still a crazy ride. But getting on that ride and staying on is tricky.
So here's what I've learned so far about actually surviving sports photography

*NEW IMPORTANT STUFF*
=huina and I have been talking and we would love to know what you think about this idea!
Since we have this group of people doing sketch a days with us, we were thinking of putting together a book of our sketches after a period of 3 months and selling it.
The profits of the book would be donated to a children's charity.
What do you guys think about that? We would love to know. ;v;

Cull Dogs Pet HomesI'm actually fresh out of points at the moment, but if anyone wants to give away their unhomed or returned offspring or dogs they've purchased and found inbred, instead of considering them stillborn/dead or retired, I'm willing to gather them and give them a pet-home (non-breeding).

Kennel AffiliatesI am... considering... A "clean puppy replacement" program for Platinum Affiliates. If you lost a dog because of an excessively inbred bloodline (there are some that are sufficiently far away for breeding, still, and you can also ask CK for special permissions for some others) and I've got a breeding planned that'd replace the dog in question in your breeding program, you can have it free (or discount if I'm fund-raising) and even trade in your neutered dog. Thoughts?
Breedings are (currently) not exclusive to affiliates. Nor are adoptions. But it is an excellent way to keep track of already-cleared kennels and homes. If worse comes to worst, only affiliates will be given kennel (breeding) licenses and the rest will be sold dogs on a pet-home license (spayed/neutered). You needn't be licensed to breed your dogs, yet. You can plan to get it later or you can just never plan to breed, you just want to have the exclusive reserves.
This list is not capo-specific. If you can't breed capos

Nudari Breeding ProjectIt's actually quite a simple project. I'll be breeding my lines for that ever-elusive no-white nudari (like all the wilds are supposed to be). Once I have all my nudari up, I can start planning, and looking for outside blood. May need to introduce some Pharaoh... I'll just have this journal sitting around to compare, visually, using thumbnails.

TeamWork- round 2!We're jumping right into a new round of our TeamWork-project!
We were really overwhelmed by the attendance last time, and since so many wanted another round, here we go !
For all those who don't know the project yet, here are some answers to all the questionmarks over your head!
What is the project about?
The aim is to team up two artists to achieve a close and individual learning-experience.
One of the two will be the teacher, whereas the other will be the student. (But our teachers will learn through this project just as much, I'm sure )
Teachers will present assignments to their students and provide them with tools, techniques and lessons to achieve the goal they both decided on.
In the end we'll present all the finished assignments in a big chat event and on our group page!
There also might be prizes for Best TeamWork, Best Final Artwork and Strongest Improvement!
We will provide all teams with tips, rules and guidelines on teaching, as soon as al
