a week in photography

Photography can be an expensive hobby. We’re spoiled by a constant drip feed of amazing kit, but being able to afford it is another matter. If only there was a way to make a bit of extra money from selling our photos... Luckily, stock photography may no longer be lucrative enough to earn a living from, but if you know what to shoot it can still subsidise the cost of a new lens or camera or a weekend away somewhere photogenic. Find out the subjects that are in demand on page 20. Also this week, on page 28, we visit Windsor Castle to learn about Prince Albert’s passion and support for photography in its earliest days, and take a look at some of the fascinating pictures he commissioned that formed the…

treasures from the hulton archive

Wartime Priest by Bert Hardy NOVEMBER, 1940: Rev French, the Church of England's Rural Dean of Stepney, makes his rounds through the bomb-damaged streets of east London during the Blitz, November 1940. The Blitz ravaged London and other major British cities for eight months between September 1940 and May 1941. This photograph was published in the Picture Post as part of the story The Life of an East End Parson, and was taken by the esteemed photojournalist Bert Hardy. Self-taught and using a Leica, Hardy eventually became the Post's chief photographer, and earned his first credit just a few months after this image was taken for his February 1941 photo essay about firefighters working through the Blitz. Hardy stayed at the Post until it ceased publication in 1957. The Getty Images Hulton Archive…

THE INTERNATIONAL Garden Photographer of the Year competition runs four ‘Photo Project' categories each year, in addition to its main contest. The latest of these was the Still Life Photo Project, and the winner has been announced as Chandler Barrett, from Virginia, USA. He takes away £500 for his beautifully composed and lit arrangement of fruit, and the image will appear in next year's IGPOTY 13 book. ‘Having gathered peaches and grapes from an orchard in the Virginia hill country,' he says, ‘I also happened by some orange butterfly weed on the roadside. Arranged, they seemed to reflect earlier still life works that the Romans (and originally Greeks) termed xenia.' For more information, visit www.igpoty.com.…

rescue plan for jessops’ property arm

ADMINISTRATORS have been called in to help save Jessops, which is one of the last major high-street camera chains left. The BBC reports that owner Peter Jones, of Dragon’s Den fame, is planning a rescue deal for Jessops' property arm, JR Prop Limited, with its landlords and lenders, via a company voluntary agreement (CVA). Through a CVA, a business can reach an agreement with its creditors to pay off all or part of its debts and renegotiate rents. While there has been speculation that this could lead to store closures and job losses, Jessops sources have indicated that Jones still saw a future in the business. No further details were available at the time of going to press.…
