  2. Favourite images uploaded - May 2018

    I actually shot this for a builder client but I thought, why not upload it for stock. We'll see if it sells

  4. Images sold in May (one per day per contributor)

    Second sale in two months from a shoot I did at a Federal Appeals Court in Washington DC. I was lucky to get access since cameras are not allowed in while courts are in session. This one was for a book use.

    Easily Travel is my best selling category.

  9. Images sold in May (one per day per contributor)

    One of my three bulk unmentionables. The Strathmore Hall Music Center in Bethesda, Maryland USA
  10. Images sold in May (one per day per contributor)

    For me, one was a performing arts theatre, another a casino and the other, a DC federal government building.....but I suppose all of mine could be venues for performances of one sort or another!

    Thanks Albert, for the spot!
  13. What have we learned about stock?

    1) That everything and anything can and does sell. 2) Having a large and diverse collection is very much a plus.....unless you are like Wim, who has a high quality and tightly edited collection. I don’t have the skill or discipline that Wim has. 3) That the internet, crowd sourcing and digital cameras in nearly everyone’s hands, have helped reduce the once healthy stock pricing.
