I was lucky enough to be taken recently to Delegate, a small town in the Snowy Mountains region, by a friend. It was an opportunity for me to take my camera out and shoot a few pictures which I have been neglecting to do for a long time. The town was interesting and although the weather was so so I managed to make some pictures that I was reasonably happy with. It was good to be behind the camera again and my enthusiasm for photography has been rekindled. Thank goodness for friends! These pictures are now available for licensing through Alamy.

A book showing some of my images that have been published either by my own submission or through Alamy, the on-line photo library. It is intended to show how some very ordinary pictures can sell if they suit an editor’s requirements. I have now made this e-book FREE with a special bonus attached.

Australia: Silver Gull (Larus novaehollandiae) at rest on rock in shallow sea

Here is the Introduction to my new e-book, Images that Sell Volume 2: Marketing our photographs for use by publishers is a time consuming task for stock photographers especially for those who are a one man or woman band. I know, I’ve tried it for many years. Just lately, I have relied on using Alamy, the on-line photographic library in an effort to sell licenses to my pictures for use by publishers including those who I am very unlikely to sell to on my own. For instance, in this book there are images that have sold to publishers in Turkey and Italy.
So, what is this book about? I have put together some of my photographs that have been licensed through Alamy to show the range of subjects and countries for which licenses have been issued. It is an attempt to show how diverse the requirements of publishers can be. It is also an indication of how some very ordinary subjects can appear in print if the image does the job for the publisher.

And, here is a picture from the ebook:

An evening walk and warm light produced the right conditions for a backlit shot. It’s nothing out of the ordinary but sometimes this sort of picture is just what an editor wants.
