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.

Following on from my last post, I have just had another sale of a photo taken (virtually) on my doorstep. This time it was on http://bigstockphoto.com/ and was an editorial shot of the signage outside the Designer Outlet in Ashford, Kent. At the time I shot it you could see the sign from my front door (though I have since moved). So pick up your camera, walk outside and see what you can find! Regards, David

After a bit of a slow period, I was pleased to get a medium res sale on PN this week (which pays £14.00 commission). On checking, I was amused to see that the picture sold was of the High Street in Hastings (about 10 minutes walk from where I live!). PN always say in their "pictures we want" section to get pictures of where you live (as boring as this sounds -to use their own words). Certainly not boring if it gets a sale! Seriously, we can all plan trips to exotic locations and exciting cities to get great photos but don't forget to photograph what is on your doorstep as well. Regards, David
