Hope your business is doing great this year.

I was doing some industry benchmarking for a client of mine when I came across your website.
I noticed a few technical errors which correspond with a drop of website traffic over the last 6-8 months which I thought I would bring to your attention.
I was analyzing your site and it seems that some of your website rankings have dropped. It is due to non optimized techniques/errors And Google guidelines not being followed properly.

•    Your web page failed on 4 high priority checks: Meta Description, Headings Status, Broken Links Test, URL Canonicalization Test
•    Your most common keywords are not appearing in one or more of the meta-tags above. Your primary keywords should appear in your Meta.
•    Site link diversity and Domain Authority is low
•    URL Canonicalization should resolve to the same URL, but currently do not.
•    5 of them are missing the required ‘alt’ attribute.
•    Your website should load quicker
•    Your webpage has so many ‘img’ tags and 5 of them are missing the required ‘alt’ attribute.
•   Your page has more than 20 http requests, which can slow down page loading.

I would love the chance to help as well however; this report will at least give you a gauge on the quality of what I do.  If you are interested then please share your requirement and contact details.
Please let me know if we can discuss this.

Comment on A black and white approach to the Faroe Islands by Lash LaRue Lash LaRue Fri, 20 Apr 2018 02:22:10 +0000 You said you shot in black and white. Do you mean b&w film? Or digital b&w? If digital, what is your technique? ….. Thanks.

Comment on Italian Law & Street Photography by adam adam Tue, 17 Apr 2018 16:36:49 +0000 TRANSLATION
Hi, I do not know if it still happens to pass this way to respond to comments, but I try.
I read with interest the article because I am now in a particular situation. I took a picture “street” in Tuscany, where it is clearly seen in his face a man who was passing in the street. It is a mean field, and is not in a compromising situation (walking and talking on the phone). The picture I think it can be considered “artistic” for the particular game of shadow and light, even in relation to the said lord. Now I’d like to participate in a photo contest with this photo, whose prizes include an exhibition, publication on the book / catalog and in the best case (that is the overall winner) a scholarship of $ 2500. In the remote chance of being awarded, it would be considered “for profit” and thus shall become liable for prosecution?
Thank you,

Hi Sabrina,
Let’s see if you win the contest first. But even if you do, as he was on the street, it is unlikely that you would have to pay any modeling fees.
If you are very concerned, after you win the competition, have a chat with an Italian lawyer, but I am yet to hear of any award winners needing to share award compensation with anyone in the photos. It is more when the pictures are taken and then used by a company in a large scale advertising campaign that things become an issue. Good luck with the award!

Comment on Italian Law & Street Photography by Sabrina Sabrina Tue, 17 Apr 2018 16:09:58 +0000 Salve, non so se le capita ancora di passare da queste parti per rispondere ai commenti, però io ci provo.
Ho letto con interesse l’articolo poiché mi trovo ora in una situazione particolare. Ho scattato una foto “street” in Toscana, dove si vede chiaramente in faccia un signore che passava in strada. Si tratta di un campo medio, e non è in una situazione compromettente (cammina e parla al telefono). La foto penso si possa considerare “artistica” per il particolare gioco di ombre e luci, anche in relazione al suddetto signore. Ora mi piacerebbe partecipare ad un concorso fotografico con questa foto, i cui premi includono una mostra, la pubblicazione sul libro/catalogo e nel migliore dei casi (cioè quello del vincitore assoluto) una borsa di studio di $2500. Nella remota possibilità che venga premiata, verrebbe considerata “for profit” e quindi diventerei legalmente perseguibile?

Comment on Lightroom won’t import ANYTHING by Chris Tribble Chris Tribble Mon, 16 Apr 2018 17:28:14 +0000 It worked for me with LR CC 7.5. It had been driving me crazy! Many thanks :)

Comment on Italian Law & Street Photography by Diane Diane Mon, 02 Apr 2018 05:45:37 +0000 Appreciated this, thank you. I live in Italy most of the time, and took a photograph people loved. I was searching for how the privacy laws would work if I tried selling it :-) I think I’m almost convinced I shouldn’t sell it …

Comment on Write to Adam by Adilson Andrade Adilson Andrade Tue, 27 Feb 2018 19:49:07 +0000 Hello Mr Marelli,
My name is Adilson Andrade and I´m an amateur photographer from Brazil. I´ve spent my last vacation watching your YuTube videos recorded at BH and some of Udemy courses. I´d like to say that they completely changed the way I used to photograph for now I am really trying to pay more attention to the light and design. Thank you very much for all your teachings as I´m sure it has touched people from all over the world. My appreciation, thank you very much.
If you could possibly bother to check how I´m starting to apply your teachings, please check this flickr album:
