For those of you that may not already know, stock photography is a genre of photography that can be used to illustrate an idea, subject or concept amongst other things. Photographers supply image libraries with photos which you can then search, browse and licence to use in various projects. So, for example, lets say an advertising agency wants to produce a website for a cycling company, but doesn’t want to pay for a photographer to cover the Tour de France (because of the cost of travel, logistics involved etc.), they are able to search a stock library for images relevant to their needs. Stock libraries supply a diverse range of images which are mainly purchased by advertisers and graphic designers.
My images are – and have been – used in promotional materials, book covers, advertising campaigns and various other print and web media.
