I’m Rob Lambert, a self-taught semi-pro stock photographer based in Dorset (UK), and this blog is written to encourage photographers thinking of getting into the photo stock business or those just interested in improving their photographic technique and processing. I’m hoping that by blogging about it I’ll improve too.
I’d like to prove that you don’t need thousands of pounds worth of kit to get started in stock or general photography – just a good eye and some imagination.
This is written purely from a personal viewpoint. Some the images on the site are for sale via my agency Arcangel Images but others are taken purely for the blog.
I’m not sponsored by any companies (unfortunately) so it’s all unbiased.
Shooting using film and digital I’ll be dealing with film types and their processing, scanning, post-processing (Adobe Photoshop) and why some images ‘work’ and some don’t. It should also get me thinking about how I’m working, as too often it seems a bit haphazard. That’s the nice thing about photography – always learning.
I’ll do some posts on ‘experimental’ photography too for when you get a bit bored with digital perfection!
Thanks for dropping by and taking a look.
