Stock photos

Hi, I'm Andy and I'm new to the site.

I am currently enjoying a rebirth of my photography thanks to Alamy, PhotoShelter and a D300.

I was previously a cruise ship photog but I now work in IT which allows my photography to be an expensive hobby

I have a stock photography blog (which is how I heard about this site - through a trackback) which I'll put in my sig in a minute.

Andy

Hi Andy and welcome,
Good to see you here and I'd be interested in reading your blog as I shoot a fair bit for stock as well.

Pester all you like, but I switch off my IT brain when I get in the car so I'm not very forthcoming on technical issues on the forums....I get enough hassle from my Dad calling me 24 hours a day when Word doesn't do what he says

Thanks for the warm welcome. I haven't posted any pictures to speak of as I protect my best pictures as they have value as stock. I'll dig out some non-stock and more arty photos when I have a minute. Meanwhile, I'll continue my andycrits on those allowing it in the Critique forum. (andycrit is a less-than-complimentary term for my slating of others pictures in a humourous way on the Alamy forum which got coined. Alamy is not a friendly place, given that there are pros and amateurs all competing for a slice of the pie). I tend to post on my blog quite a lot, partly to promote my latest images and also to impose my own ideas on those unfortunate enough to find it.

Andy

Re: Stock photos

The IT comment was meant in a tounge in cheek way but I guess you realised that. I am a chemist (soon to be an ex chemist ) no one asks me any questions. A good job to as I have forgotten most of what I knew.

There are several people here who post images with large copyright symbols on them which I assume you could do. If you can I will look forward to seeing what you produce.

Re: Stock photos

Cheers. I can't even think of a question to ask a chemist unless you are a pharmacist then there's plenty to be going on with

I've put up one picture today which was too shaky for stock with mahoosive copyright watermarking...unfortunately I compressed the JPEG too much so it is a bit soft or lacking definition (I should know better!). Anyway, I'll appreciate any comments on my pictures as I am lacking "fresh eyes" and most of what I shoot is boring and documentary (which is fine for stock, of course)
