Outdoor and adventure sports photography
I've used various solutions for stock photography over the years. Photoshelter was the best but they don't offer a blog (and in October 2017 say they no longer fully support the blog integration they had through Graph Paper Press). Getty Images I decided often sold my images for far too low prices. The same with Alamy. I'm currently quite happily using Squarespace for my website (which has a really easy GUI and an integrated blog) but it has no stock functionality.
I'm looking forward to a web hosting solution for photographers that marries all three - an easy GUI, a blog and efficient stock functionality. Until then, I've decided to manually manage my stock image library through my website.
You'll find images categorised as follows;
- Hiking, backpacking and trekking (Summer/Autumn)
- Hiking and backpacking (Winter/Spring)
- Trail and mountain running
- Mountain biking
- Road cycling
- Mountain landscapes
- Celtman Extreme Scottish Triathlon
- Mountain safety
- Spiderman in the Cairngorms National Park
- Travel and tourism
A few of these categories are currently sparse and at least one rather incongruous (I decided the Spiderman images were too fun to be left on my hard drive). I'll be adding to the libraries over time, both with new stock and other images from my archive.
