Not everyone always realizes, there are more stock photography agents besides ShutterStock, iStock, Adobe Stock & Dreamtime. Usually cheap and low to medium quality, there are premium images available for licensing too … The Barcelona based AGE FotoStock is one of them … Established approximately 1973, they were the first to offer their collections on the Internet in 1998, using their own IT technology. AGE Fotostock is one of the very few photographer run agencies, accumulating a wealth of experience on the industry.

A modest photo report on their new office with lots and lots of space.
Guerrilla style photography; a modest briefing, and with mobile equipment, like a small camera, a laptop and an internet connection, I went to Amsterdam, met the assignor, shot the images she needed, processed them, send them over to my assignor ready for use in a brochure. Within two hours I finished my assignment, and even had some time to send the invoice, which was nicely payed within two weeks. Chapeau!
Last week I was present at the “Ports and the City” conference in Nijmegen, Netherlands. A two day assignment photography job, on a conference all about inland shipping, barges, harbours, container terminals and logistics. Most important question was: how to make inland shipping more sustainable and environmental friendly. The conference had been organised by Nijmegen European Green Capital 2018 and the Smart and Healthy City programme of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. The results of my work: a nice photo-report, is coming online since today.
