My best selling stock photo – believe it or not

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

My most frequently sold image has just been sold again – yet another European text book.  Every time it sells I am amazed again! I originally took this shot in Belfast when I was working on the photography for a city guide.  This restaurant was one of those reviewed.  When I came to send all my images to my stock photography library I only included it because it was already scanned, so I might as well (this is back in the days when I was still shooting film).  I never believed it would sell as well as it has – a total of 10 times over the last few years.

It always seems to be used in text books, so it’s not my biggest earning image, but it is the one that appears most regularly in my sales statements.


Linlithgow & Stirlingshire Pony Club Team Show Jumping and Dengie Qualifier

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

Another Linlithgow & Stirlingshire Pony Club event at the Scottish National Equestrian Centre (SNEC) at Oatridge College.

Show Jumping Event Photography

It was a pretty full-on day – show jumping classes started at 8.30am, and we were still takings photographs for the last one at 9pm, with the snow falling deep and thick and even outside.

But it was a great event – lots of teams in every class, all having a lot of fun. The course-builders were very helpful in giving us good positions to get the best showjumping photos possible.

It was a long hard day but we came out with almost 1500 quality photos to go on the website, and orders are now pouring in so it was well worth it.
