A days London Stock photography shoot
Come along for a day of advice, information and practical application on what, and just as importantly how to take the type of photographs that sell in picture libraries. This is a day spent on the streets of London specifically for taking saleable stock pictures to place in photo libraries. This approach to picture taking is often different to that which you would usually take. Its crucial that you understand this difference if you are to succeed in profitably selling your pictures and I show you all this and more. In the stock and travel photography seminars that I hold at Calumet I open up my Alamy photo library sales account which shows exactly what pictures I sold and for how much. People are always very surprised when they see my sales report. What sells is not what they expected - its not just the obvious and big tourist attractions that make the money - those pictures do sell but there is a huge number of them for buyers to sift through so invariably most pictures don't get seen. Instead it is the subjects over looked by most stock photographers which i repeatedly sell. I don't just sell through Alamy. I contribute to several libraries and my total sales are now over a quarter million pounds. “ Great, Martin allows you free reign but is happy to give guidance where you want it. Also provides you with ideas and new ways to look at things. Will definitely book more workshops with Martin in future " While this day is spent around London what you see and learn can be applied photographically to any other city you visit to take stock pictures. So it is all invaluable experience that can be transferred to anywhere you visit. This day compliments the stock photography seminars I hold at Calumet - putting into practice what you have learnt and gaining a greater understanding of the stock market. Its not essential that you have been to the seminar for as we go along and during refreshment stops, I will also give advice about everything you need to know about photo libraries; model and property releases, libraries to submit to, selling licensed or Royalty Free etc. You will learn what buyers are looking for and what they are definitely not. “ Martins workshops are fantastic, everything runs in such an organised fashion and he is always so helpful with any queries ” It costs £79 and takes place on Saturday June 9th from 10.30 - 3.30 so a very full day though there will be coffee and lunch breaks. There will be a fair amount of walking, nothing too strenuous but you will need a basic level of fitness. If the weather is really against us then I will offer a rescheduled date or refund. “ Informal, relaxed, no-nonsense approach and a wealth of information. Really useful. Thanks, see you again! ”

What we're about

This group is for London photographers who want to learn or improve their picture taking skills. Our workshops are somewhat different from many others.

We choose more unusual subjects and the emphasis is very much on teaching and sharing knowledge to hone your skills and encourage creativity. Indoor workshops take place in a professional studio and numbers are always restricted to ensure that everyone receives as much instruction and assistance that they may need.
