Free photography kit


Well-known Member
I've just done some adding up.

Turns out that I've reached a bit of a milestone and my photography kit has now paid for itself. This has come from a mixture of Getty/Scoopt sales, Fotolia, iStockphoto, polo pics to members at Hurtwood Polo Club, a couple of paid parties, some articles in polo magazines and last weekend's mens fashion photoshoot (by far the biggest single earner). A few other sundry sales in there as well.

This clearly is GOOD NEWS.

I feel rather tempted to go out and buy some more kit now :D.

Interestingly, my approach to photography has also changed. Because I've been snapping most weekends I've had little time to photograph "for the joy of it". Whilst I really enjoy doing the sport stuff, and the fashion shoot was stressful as anything but good fun, I do miss the creative side. At the end of a ferocious weekend like last weekend, I feel "snapped out".

Now that the polo season is done, I'm looking forward to getting out and about and finding interesting stuff to shoot with my free gear.

Nice one :thumbsup: I'm on my way there but still a way off at the moment. We'll see how my court case does first!!

So I take it you'll be wanting to go on a nice 'creative' trip to Harris or Lewis then in the new year then?

And you'll obviously want to pay for me too yeah?
