2007, 1st image, tents, exposure should be better:

My second file uploaded from 2007, when it was downloaded I started to believe in stock photography:
file_thumbview_approve 

In 2010 I have decided that shooting people is more fun (and more profit), bought new camera and lens. This file was my first Vetta, and later was converted to Agency. Though I doubt it would made it now, but it was a great inspiration:

Now I continue shooting people trying to make something different and interesting with every shot - december 2012:

I started out uploading mostly wildlife becauce it's what I enjoy shooting the most.


file_thumbview_approve 


I then switched to fishing since it's what I have the most experience with as an outdoor journalist.


file_thumbview_approve 


And after realizing that I'll never be able to predict what sells and what doesn't I upload a random assortment of everything.

Here are mine: 


One of my first successful images here at iStock.  I have always loved to fish for trout and this 13" Brook Trout is pretty.  This photo is from 2004 when i first started here.


file_thumbview_approve 


One of my better food photos from 2009.  It pays to shoot pretty photos of food.  This meal of Chicken Piccata tasted good-MMM!


file_thumbview_approve 


This photo is from 2012-uploaded in 2013.  Photo is from our vacation to Italy in October 2012-an editorial shot of tourists in front of the Doge's Palace in Venice Italy.  Italy is a photographers paradise.  I am shooting a lot more editorial nowdays.

Tough choosing which type of photography to focus on here (no pun intended). My landscapes have probably progressed the most since I started here in 2006. From shooting rather dull compositions in jpeg with hardly any post-processing to where I now shoot only RAW and put in extensive time post-processing every single landscape image intended for iStock.


However, I thought I'd share the progress I've made with my studio work, since this is an area where I'd still like to progress much further.


(2006) Here's my very first image accepted, which I'm sure would never make it by today's standards. I've considered culling it a few times, but it does continue to sell occassionally. Skateboard on "white" background:


file_thumbview_approve 


(2009) Working with black backgrounds:


file_thumbview_approve 


(2012) Finally nailed the method of isolation on white through studio lighting, with floor reflections. Bavarian/Austrian Brass Band:


file_thumbview_approve 


(2013) this one's still in the queue, but it seemed relevant enough to share here. Studio shot on black background, playing with long exposure and flash timing. Electric Guitarist in Motion:

I started in 2009 with a lot of horseback riding shots like this:


file_thumbview_approve 


Then we lived nomadically for about a year and a half while we traveled around the world. I posted quite a few travel type shots like this one:


file_thumbview_approve 


Now, well, I am living back in one place and just have my head buried.

What a lot of great images - I wish I was making such great progress myself!


This is one of my early images acepted (from October 2011). I was always interested in themes that concern everyday life, such as caring for family, shopping etc. This is supposed to show the concerns for the rising price of bread (on "white" background).


file_thumbview_approve 


Then I started going out with my camera a bit, taking photos of flowers in the garden etc like this crocuses I planted in my garden (February 2012). This made me think about how much I enjoy playing with colours.


file_thumbview_approve 


But being outside is not very me - unless it is my own garden! When I am out with my camera and a reflector and a tripoid everybody in the park wants to talk to me and they tell me stories about their granddaughters also taking photographs of flowers etc smile all dogs come to play with me and knock my tripoid over and sniff in my rucksack. It is all great but I rarely end up with a good photo!


So, I got back inside. I now really like taking images that are inspired by my children's "tresure boxes" or sometimes everyday objects.


file_thumbview_approve 


 


In future I hope to learn more about postprocessing and light to achive some great images like I see everyday here on Istock!

2009 [registered in 2007 but started uploading properly only in 2010]
My first 'proper stock' intent, though it had been shot better by then, but still, directional sign on tarmac, with some curb and grass - I liked the overall colour, and I still do. At the same time, anybody can, and probably has shot sth like this, no big deal.
file_thumbview_approve
2011 [halfway through]
I grasped the idea of Editorial photography and this conference lecture shot, despite some criticism of my friends, is one of my favs.
file_thumbview_approve
2012 [october, spent a week with a lovely family in London]
Dad with his little girl at the King's Cross train station, and since I adore little Klara, and we're good friends [with the whole family] I realised, and still do, that shooting people should be my priority, more or less staged.

Capturing "found objects" such as signs has always been something that I like to do while out with my camera. And it appears that some of the buyers like them as well.

It show both iStock progress (or standards, if you like) and our own. I didn't take microstock photography seriously in the beginning and I didn't want to "kill myself" producing images that return $0.10 commission. So, I started like this (my very first upload in 2005):

A few years later:

And finally last summer:
