Back in the Seventies and Eighties I founded and ran several Fleet Street photo agencies specialising in stock images of celebrities from pop stars to politicians. These were syndicated to the National and International press and Television. These days I am active in the Microstock world and this blog charts my journey as well as, hopefully, providing inspiration and ideas to others. Image buyers should also find this blog useful with links to my portfolios and regular updates on new uploads. Unless otherwise stated all images are my copyright and may not be reproduced or copied. Comments are very welcome but will be reviewed before publication. Enjoy your visit. Regards, David.

Picture Nation fees:
British image library Picture Nation caused some excitement amongst contributors this week when they announced a new £10 per year membership fee. After a couple of days of heated postings on the Picture Nation forum http://picturenation.co.uk including from myself, PN posted a long explanation explaining their position. They built a well put and convincing case for the new fee and I have paid up. Interestingly, my latest batch of uploaded photographs got reviewed and approved in record time. Still on Picture Nation, I suggested on the forum recently that photos of Woolworths stores would be in demand now. Result? Their images of Woolworths stores has risen from just one to sixteen (including four of mine). Regards, David
