Jane Cooke Jazz photo shoot at the Old Chapel

A couple of weeks ago I did my first photo shoot with my new camera, creating promotional images for Jane Cooke Jazz a local musical duo. We did the shoot in a recording studio which is in a converted church and is only a couple of minutes away from my house. I was looking forward to it as I was hoping I’d finally get to lay the ghost of my old camera to rest!

Photos I have sold recently… and to where

I’ve been selling my photos through Getty Images for about six years. They initially recruited me via my Flickr account and in those early days the process of selling images was quite an easy one. The Getty team monitored your Flickr uploads and specifically requested to licence those photos they liked. Then you just had to fill in an online form and your photos were on sale.

When the Flickr/Getty deal came to an end, us contributors switched over to a new slightly less intuitive system and as a result the number of new images I was licensing tailed off, although the sales continued and every few months I’d get a nice surprise payment in to my bank.

After getting to grips with a few problems I’ve had with Getty’s system I’ve decided to be more proactive this year and spend time uploading new images to licence, whilst making more of an effort to analyse the kind of photos that are selling. So as part of this process I thought I’d start an occasional series of posts about the images I have sold recently. This latest batch cover the last six months, but as I have doubled the number of photos I have listed  this week, I am expecting the number of sales to increase over the year.

Home Life Project – March

Home Life Project – March

by Clare Mansell

I have to admit I was a little sad that this month’s Home Life Project weekend missed the snow by just a matter of hours (in my part of the country at least!) as it would have provided such an interesting backdrop for March. However I did have some positive news this weekend, as at long last my camera is back from repair with Nikon, although after nearly six months with repeated problems, my confidence and enthusiasm for photography has really taken a hit and I’m still debating whether to trade my current model in and start afresh with a new camera entirely. I think it’s fair enough to say I have lost my photography mojo at the moment.
