The BBC have an interesting video on selling photography that I thought I’d share. Interesting for me on several counts. Firstly, the prospects of profiting from your photos – amateur snappers are getting an ever bigger share of the image sales market every year. Although I’ve never had a cent. True, the requests I have had I’ve accepted with a copy of the book or magazine in lieu of payment. But I’ve had nothing through the Getty arrangement with Flickr.
Secondly, they feature an MFT camera in the video, a Panasonic GF2. A little more expensive than my Olympus Pen, which is also in the video briefly, but they share much of the same tech. It’s a fabulous little camera. It also has a ‘smaller brother’ now, if you want quality but don’t want to leave the comapct market just yet – the Olympus XZ-1.
Thirdly…shooting photographs in London. Just 7 days to go….
