I was a professional Industrial / Commercial photographer for over 25 years, before retiring from commissioned work to become a full-time 'Stock' Photographer. Since early 2005 I have earned my entire income from shooting 'Stock' images. The majority of my work is available through mainstream Stock Agencies - I have over 28,000 images on sale and submit to the following mainstream agencies:
Image Bank - Brand X - Stone - Photodisc - Digital Vision - Riser - Stockbyte - Creatas - Foodpix - Science Photo Library - NHPA - Photoshot
And also the following Microstock agencies:
DepositPhotos - Dreamstime - Pocketstock – Photolia
Well over half of my work is now Travel or Wildlife Photography.
I'm a 'travelaholic' and have so far visited 87 countries & territories including both the Arctic and Antarctica.
