We’re now at the the peak of the summer season and sales are naturally quiet. I suppose it’s also a moment of reflection heading into the “business end of the year”.
Therefore, I’d like to take this opportunity to throw out there:
- Any questions, suggestions for topics or anything else that you may be interested in sharing?
- Any topics you’d be interested in me covering? Any additions to the sales reports that I may focus on?
- Anybody with an interesting story/background that they would be interested in sharing (for an interview on here)?
- Anything else!
Brainstorming a new book out not so soon…
I’ve been brainstorming lately on putting together a new book, combining my legal background with photography. Although it’s still very early days, it will be on country-specific rules/regulations as a street photographer within the top-50 most visited countries, with a twist on what landmarks and types of content can be licensed editorially at stock agencies.
A practical guide to stay on the right side of the law (or as close to as possible) and avoid any unnecessary risks and protect yourself in case of “harassment”. May also throw in info on up-to-date drone regulations as this is a new exciting development. Let’s see!
Still much work and research to be done, but just throwing it out there for comments/suggestions…would this be something that would be interesting for you when you do get back to regular traveling? Have you had issues shooting out in the public in your travels?
I’m an eccentric guy, currently based in Madrid, Spain, on a quest to visit all corners of the world and capture stock images & footage, when things go back to normal (Late-2021??). I’ve devoted eight years to making it as a travel photographer / videographer and freelance writer (however, had recently go back into full-time office work to make ends meet). I hope to inspire others by showing an unique insight into a fascinating business model.
I’m proud to have written a book about my adventures which includes tips on making it as a stock travel photographer – Brutally Honest Guide to Microstock Photography
