Cheating 101: Internet Paper Mills
This list of active Internet term paper and essay sites was compiled as part of a Teaching Effectiveness Seminar on cheating, plagiarism and Internet paper mills. The list is provided as a convenience for faculty, in order for them to be aware of the vast variety of resources out on the Internet that are tempting their students.

When this list started in March 1999, it had 35 sites on it. Currently, November 2006, there are over 250 general sites listed below. Subject specific sites are listed at Internet Subject Specific Paper Mills.

Students: read the warnings at these sites. If you turn in one of these papers as your own work, you are plagiarizing. If you need help with research, ask the experts at Coastal Carolina University (professors, librarians, Writing Center personnel, etc.). You are capable of producing work that is much better than what is offered at these sites.

These are business sites, they exist for one purpose, to make money off you. They don't care about your grades, your integrity, or your problems, despite their assurances to the contrary. They want your cash or credit cards. Caveat Emptor (Let the Buyer Beware).

Disclaimer: This list is updated every six months. We are not responsible for any changes to content or purpose that these sites might make between updates.

Photography Job Opportunity Tuesday

I'd like to make some more money at documentary photography. A documentary photographer takes photographs that reflect the realism of a situation and that communicate emotions of human or animal struggles in their environment. The photographer may have to work in a war zone or in a poor inner city neighborhood.

I just read that the best way to make money in documentary photography is to write a proposal for a grant.

What do you need to do in order to get a documentary photography grant? There's some great information here.

Letter to Ask for Book Review

Here's a letter I sent to the book reviewer at the SF Chronicle asking for him to review my book, 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco.

Hi John,

I'm Matt Bamberg, author of 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco. With all of the shutterbugs in the Bay Area, I think a book about both digital photography and San Francisco would be a draw for readers of the San Francisco Chronicle.

With that said and done, I writing to you to inquire about a review of my book in the SF Chronicle.

In the 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco readers learn where to find and shoot the breathtaking views, offbeat street scenes and stunning architecture of the city. All the research, location scouting (there are Muni directions for every photo op), and planning have been done so that readers can concentrate on the technicalities of the picture from shutter speed to aperture. Equal parts photo essay and how-to, the book is meant to complement traditional city guidebooks.

The book is for locals and visitors alike. There are sample photos, each with a full set of camera settings to emulate the photo. Whether readers want to develop their photography skills or just want to go to different locations to take some good shots, this book details everything you want to know about photographing San Francisco.

Thanks for taking the time to read my pitch. I can have a book sent to you ASAP if you're interested.

Best regards,

Matt Bamberg

Photography Job Opportunity Tuesday

It's Tuesday! Today I offer some advice for wedding photographers. Making money as a wedding photographer means managing your time well from preparing for a shoot to postprocessing. Here are some other keys to wedding photography success:

1. Offer low prices.
2. Create a well-timed presentation to clients.
3. Use narrative in your photos.
4. Create ez pricing.
5. Create quick photo-art albums of wedding photos.
6. Use the Internet to market your business.
7. Don't participate in bridal shows.
8. Don't spend much time postprocessing your photos.

There's a DVD you can buy that goes further into how to make a lot of money as a wedding photographer.

How to Get a Book Signing in a Major Bookstore

It's been a busy day in making-money-with-photography land. I finally got to arranging for my first book signing. I called the Rancho Mirage, CA Barnes and Nobel and asked if they could host a signing for my two books, 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco and 101 Quick and Easy Secrets to Create Winning Photographs. Since I'm teaching a class at UCR in photography in May and need as many students as I can get, I told the Costumer Relations Manager (CRM) at the store about it.

Here's the email I sent him:

Hi Dan,

Thanks for talking with me this afternoon about book signings for my two books, "50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco, " which came out in January and "101 Quick and Easy Secrets to Create Winning Photographs," which comes out April 9th.

The "Quick and Easy" book is the first of a series of books.

I'd like to have both books available for purchase at a book signing that, if possible, takes place in late April. I can do a photography seminar if you want, or just counsel people about their cameras.

I'll be teaching a photography class at UCR that starts in May. The class is listed at

I used to write for the Desert Sun and know an editor there who I have spoken to regarding a story about the book series, my class and the book signing.

The article will be published before the book signing.

I'd like to get the books signings in before the class starts.

Thanks for looking into this.

Best regards,

Matt Bamberg

It's much easier to get a book signing for a book with an ISBN number, or a book published by a major publisher. Sometimes they do self-published books, but my guess is that they only do them if they're selling well elsewhere.

Now, book signings aren't the best way to sell a lot of books, but they can help. Of course, it helps to be famous (say, like Joan Rivers). They can be somewhat successful if you have an online presence (so people can find you on the Internet and buy your book when they hear about it) and, if you can get the local press to back you up (write stories about you or have you on a local TV/radio show).

Please comment on any experiences you've had at book signings, whether you've been to one or have had one. Do you think you can sell hundreds of books this way?
