The Lordprice Collection is an unique assemblage of vintage illustration and painting, poster and advertisement imagery, photography and ephemera.

This month it's holiday time! Shown here is an Edwardian seaside postcard showing the joys of the English Summer break - or at least the journey there. One of many classic, and not so classic, cartoons on drink, and indeed many other subjects.

The Lordprice website allows you to buy prints - but is just a tiny fraction of the collection. If what you want isn't there, just ask - they'll probably have it!

Bob Tetro is currently a fine art travel photographer having pursued a hobby interest in photography during a youth and diplomatic career abroad. The international character to his life has left him with a portfolio that includes Afghanistan, Cambodia, Denmark, Estonia, Holland, India, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Nepal, Norway, Sweden, Thailand and the Continental USA.

He is motivated in a photographic subject by feelings imparted to him even before he is aware an upcoming composition. The resulting image seeks to communicate this mood or atmosphere to the viewer. Upcoming travel will be taking him to Martha’s Vineyard (Massachusetts) and Russia.

He currently shoots with a Nikon D2X camera (native image size at 300 dpi is 2,848 x 4,288 pixels or 24 x 26 cm). Newly acquired Epson 4800 allows prints up to 40 x 60 cm. Panorama images range between 40 x 150 and 230 cm. (artist search on last name – proprietary site coming soon)

STOCKCZECH is a specialist photolibrary featuring images of the Czech Republic taken by Sheila Atter. Whilst many libraries have good coverage of Prague, few can supply photographs of other areas of the country in any depth, and even fewer hold stock covering the industrial, political and commercial life of the country.

This year, images of Brno, capital of Moravia, have been added to Stockczech, as well as coverage of the spa town of Karlovy Vary.

Sheila Atter will be back in the Czech Republic in September and October. As her travel plans are always fairly flexible, contact her for last minute assignments.
