Taking Stock

I have been spending much of my time over the last two weeks shooting for my stock archive.  The light this time of year is absolutely fantastic, so I want to take every change I get to shoot.  Keeping busy shooting is nice, but it’s also nice to get calls from clients who want to see what I’ve recently been up to.  I send images to several stock houses and one art consultant who works with a variety of hotels, designers, and architects.  The consultant recently called and asked if I had any architecture images that were design oriented.  Good thing I’m always shooting.  They wanted single horizontal images or groups of three verticals.  Finished size is to be at least 6 ft wide.  Here are some examples of what I presented to them.

World Trade Center Office Tower - Lower Manhattan
The Woolworth Building - Lower Manhattan
Bryant Park - New York City

Sports Fans and Stock Images

For those of you who love sports, Sports Illustrated has just published a new book of all their magazine covers (read the story here).  It is a a 208-page collection of more than 2,500 color photographs covering the last 55 years.

Does this mean the “cover curse” lives on?


I have some new stock images in my archive.  I’m trying to shoot more B&W.  Not that I think there is a trend or more of a need, just that it’s more of a throw-back for me to the good ole days.  Kind of miss the smell of fixer and those long, dark days spent with the enlarger.
Both of these were shot on film then scanned.
