6 Parts - Lots of
Photos - Let's start now
quickly through lots of photos this evening, not be stopping for long on any photo.
intention is just to show the sort of work that I've been doing.
added the talk to my EdinPhoto web site,
so you can look again at any of the photos there.
My web site
includes photos and recollections of
Edinphoto or Peter Stubbs
The EdinPhoto site is non-commercial. I
don't sell any of my photos, but people sometimes
ask if they
can use them. I usually agree.
Up to 1990s
I used to enter my photos in
competitions, both EPS and External.
Competitions motivated me to take
photos. The feedback was helpful.
I found the Colour Group Theme
Competitions to be a good challenge.
I enjoyed seeing how others had
interpreted the same theme.
Maybe I'll enter competitions
again, but ...
Now, my main reasons for taking
to capture some images that I hope will be
interesting to look back on
in the future.
Edinburgh is constantly changing.
I'm surprised just how quickly it changes and how many of the
photos that I've taken, even quite recently, could not be
to capture images that I think
might be of interest to people viewing
EdinPhoto web site, now and in the future.
Web Sites, Papers, Magazines,
Christmas Cards, ...
Web Sites, Papers and
As well as adding my photos to the
EdinPhoto web site - when I have found the time to do that - and
occasionally sending photos for publication in the Edinburgh
Evening News Picture Gallery feature, I've received
emails from many people around the world asking if they can use
my images for different purposes.
I've often been surprised by where the
requests have come from:
- a group of
Pylon enthusiasts interested in my photo of a Pylon in the
mountains in Queensland
- a group of
Ukrainian Bus Shelter
enthusiasts, interested in some of my photos of Edinburgh bus
- Several editors of
magazines that I never knew existed.
Here are a few of the places
where others have made use of my photos:
have used some of my photos as a basis for a painting, a tapestry, on a CD
cover, a poster, a notice board, packaging for coffee, a First Day Cover, in
exhibitions, lectures, religious services, other web sites, archives, family
history collections and in several books.
