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.

First sale on FineArtAmerica:

Delighted to report my first ever sale on FineArtAmerica today. A buyer in the USA purchased a print of my 1978 photo of Phil Lynott, lead singer of Irish rock group Thin Lizzy.
This earned me a very worthwhile commission of $25 plus an additional $0.35 as commission on the materials/printing etc (you get the latter when signed up to the paid account).
This means that with just one sale I have nearly recouped my annual fee of $30. Had the buyer ordered a bigger print size I would have covered that and more.
I now have approaching 300 images at FAA and have hopes of getting more sales as my portfolio there builds.
It is certainly satisfying to think that somebody liked my image enough to want to buy a print of it. My (referral) link to FAA is on the left for anyone wanting to check out my portfolio or sign up themselves. Regards, David.
