    by Ellenboughn | 30th of July, 2008

  • War and Peace

    by Ellenboughn | 11th of June, 2008

  • Get Framed

    by Ellenboughn | 28th of May, 2008

    Images that are mass-produced as ‘wall art’ or posters for use in décor differ from fine art in that the images are not signed prints or original art. The business of wall art is complex and involves multiple publishers, distributors and online retailers as well as direct... More

  • What Makes Best Selling Photo?

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of February, 2008

    The most popular concepts in the top photographs from last year are happiness/love/family and determined business teams. Don’t drop everything to focus on kisses and bunches of business types. Statistics only tell part of any story. How many images would have been in the... More

  • The Trendspotting Trend*

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of August, 2007

    Traditional stock photo agencies are heavily vested in ‘creative research’. This is the stuff that informs expensive stock productions and drives editing guidelines. The biggest stock producers look for sociological and economic trends that will impact general image needs... More
  • Global Warming

    by Ellenboughn | 11th of April, 2007
