    This months magazine supplement/make money from your photos has been warmly recieved especially by me !
    I met Richard Sibley on Brighton beach.I was not aware at the time he was on a covert operation for the magazine:cool:.
    We just had a pleasant chat about photography in general and microstock.I was taking part in the Istockphoto Lypse.I had just shot a family of three on the beach with the creative team from istock.We exchanged business cards and he contacted me some weeks later asking a few questions about my expierance with Istockphoto/microstock.
    The upshot was that i was the subject of the article 'Inside Stories'.-Alistair Shankie.
    I would like to thank Richard and the magazine for the article.To see some of your work in print over two pages and be quoted correctly is kinda special.
    Nice work.

    Good point. It has been known for him to don some stealth photog gear (for TestBench purposes) in the editorial office, although he then sticks out like a sore…

    I loved the supplement and wish I could start life over and do photography, Been on the istock site and wished I was fitter to be able to earn an income that way.

    Waiting for the inspectors to do their worst.

    Good Luck.Let me no how it goes and may i ask what the subjects were.Diverse enough to show the inspectors a little of your talent..portrait/landscape/macro/night image/conceptual.

    Me too - then he blackmailed me into giving him a job, or he'd tell my wife. :)

    Glad you enjoyed the supplement.
