One of my agencies has just uploaded some new imagery. AGE Fotostock in Spain licenses my work around the world. They do not sell photos – they sell “rights” to use photos for specific purposes. This is known as “licensing” the imagery. This industry is called “stock photography.”
See one of the images recently posted:
My Mum had had foot surgery and kindly agreed to model from her wheelchair. I took a dual role as photographer and model – that’s me in the red t-shirt multi tasking. The camera was attached to the wheelchair which gave the opportunity for some funky motion!
Stock photography is, in some ways, my favourite type of work and the initial reason I got into photography as a career! My work is now quite diverse but stock comprises a good chunk of my photo life.
