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.

Picturenation forum offline
The members forum at http://picturenation.co.uk has gone offline (for now at least). I was a bit concerned when it vanished and emailed founder Jane-Louise Green. As ever, Jane-Louise got right back to me. It seems that running and moderating the forum is quite time consuming and at the moment they are just too busy reviewing and marketing photographs to keep it going. I think that in the present economic climate we all understand that getting sales is the only priority! The forum will hopefully be back in the future. Meanwhile they do have a page on Facebook where you can leave comments. On the plus side a batch of around 30 new photos which I uploaded at the weekend were reviewed and (thankfully) mostly approved within a couple of days. And that, let's be honest, is what matters most. That doesn't mean that I don't miss adding my views on the forum! Regards, David
