John Gaffen Posted May 4, 2020 Share Posted May 4, 2020 (edited) On Saturday, when the Alamy data-base updated, my portfolio image total reached and surpassed 10,000 images. A moment of muted celebration, given the hundreds and thousands of hours needed to achieve this milestone. But, this achievement feels a bit hollow at present, because, like many other businesses, the lock down has effected the stock photography business dramatically and not for the better, since sales, zooms and views have taken a nose dive! Of course, there is now a considerable demand for lockdown-related images, so I've taken the decision, like a few others here on Alamy to start documenting the effects of the lockdown, starting with the borough where I live, in Lewisham. At least I can feel slightly safer in an area I know well, rather than wandering around up in the centre of London, which has already been extensively photographed during lockdown anyway.
