The Alamy home page should be one of Keith's starling photos for each day next week.

Principally the importance of taking pictures in a place, rather than of a place

This is sh*t news. Along with David Kilpatrick, Keith's posts were those that I made sure to read. There was a lot of valuable insights in his brief posts. And, like John,  I recall his reply many years back (To Julian Elliott who lived in the French town of Tours if I recall) was "don't take pictures of Tours, take pictures in Tours". A photographic philosophy in 9 words.

Some kind of tribute along those lines would be fitting.

I was lucky enough to meet Keith on an Alamy course in Cirencester a few years back. A dry wit and a man really in charge of his craft, a craft he obviously loved. Taken far too soon.

 

Gorffwyswch mewn heddwch, butty. You'll be missed.

Great tragedy it was his "thanks Alamy for paying for my house" that made me choose Alamy. Crying shame he was an inspiration to somebody starting out in stock.

 

Shocking! I was inspired by the same article a few years ago. Rest in peace, RedSnapper!

😭  Rest in photographer heaven, Keith. You will be greatly missed.

Keith was someone who took his craft seriously, and put in long hours. Yet he always found time to pop in to the forum now and again and guide those who were stumbling. He had a servant’s heart, always willing to share his valuable knowledge.

I wish I could have met him.

I just saw the news on the BBC website.

 

He was always insightful on the forum, my condolences to his family.

I'm really having difficulty believing what's happened.  Keith has given me so much advice & tips over the last few years and I'm pretty sure that around 80% of my stock/news income is a direct result of correspondence with him. I really am deeply saddened by the loss of someone that has given me so much drive and motivation over a relatively short space of time. Keith has changed the way I take photos for the better. I'll most certainly miss his presence. R.I.P RedSnapper

So shocked and very sad to read this news.  I never met Keith but his online presence and comments here have been helpful and inspirational over the years.
RIP Keith.

How awful. Condolences to his family.  I also only knew Keith from this forum, but it feels like a close friend has passed.

So sad,  seems unreal, and what a loss.  Have been thinking about it since hearing about it earlier today.  I always appreciated all of Keith's useful tidbits about the photography biz that he shared here.   I see from reading the remembrances how special he was to his community and to those who knew him.  And that includes our little group here.  Condolences to his family.

So very sad. RIP Redsnapper ...condolences to his family...what a loss to Alamy and the entire photographic community. 

Great idea @AndrewP  one of his photos each day this coming week would be an apt tribute to the man who has given many of us and the entire Alamy community so much.

I only learned of Keith’s passing last night. It is very tragic what has happened and whenever one of our own is taken then we can only grieve.

 

with regards to his comments to me. We are very different photographers. We each have our own styles and ways of working.

 

It really is not the moment to name people in this way and to start making comparisons between our respective ways of working.

As I’m away from home this weekend I only just learned of this sad news just now.

Keith came to visit me once, I think to check out the local competition😊. He was so full of energy it wore me out just talking to him for a couple of hours. 

He will be greatly missed in the photographic community and beyond.

RIP Keith
