List of stock photo agencies

I often get asked "do you know any good photo agencies."   I do have photos sold through Corbis and the Canadian Press to publications I would not normaly have as clients.  Most of my sold photos are of news related items, so the agencies I have success with aren't neccesairly the same ones as another photographer would have.

You need to research what are the specific needs of each photo agency, and find one that suits your style of photos.  Here is a helpful list of photo agencies.

Dirty camera sensor

This is the result of a very dirty camera sensor;

I use Visibledust wet cleaning swabs to clean my camera sensors.  Suited for the removal of water based stains on your sensor. It provides an anti-static barrier for the prevention of dust accumulation, it has anti-fogging capabilities and prevents streaking as it cleans. If you intend to work in a humid or arid climate, Sensor Clean™ will provide a buffer against vapour build up and dust collection.

Shooting wildlife photos

Shooting wildlife photos takes patience, waiting hours to get the shot you want.  That is why I love these little 3 foot stools. Compact, lightweight, and cheap, under $10.  I bring one with me on all my wetland shoots, along with my camera gear and monopod.

Spring migration

Waiting for the geese to arrive.

Once the snow starts to leave, I wait impatiently for the arrival of the first geese of the season. This photo was shot last year on April 25th, so I still have a few days to wait to catch this years flock.
