Introducing a New Service: Complete Photo Story Packages with Text!


Our photographers don't just have great images, they also have story ideas for weaving around their images which they are now offering for you to buy.

If you are looking for an article idea for your magazine, website, travel blog, or other publication then have a look at our photo story pitches. Many of the ideas are the seeds for possible enticing features, whereas many other are already fully formed articles available for quick download.

As an example, have a look at our off-the-shelf Game of Thrones package, or browse through our other ideas for inspiration. We are offering our packages with First Publishing Rights and will work with you, the photographer, and the author, to edit the article to your requirements and suggest other images to your wishes.

Also in this newsletter, check out Dave Reede's websites for stunning images of Canada, Mark Sutherland's images of Yorkshire, England, and high-tec powerhouse Kevin Palmer's industrial and commercial photography. Finally, why not take a look at George Olney's mysterious, emotive images from the Procession of Silence in Mexico.

photo by George Olney

Photographer George Olney is a regular attendant at the powerfully emotive Procession of Silence (ProcesiĆ³n Del Silencio Potosina) held annually every Good Friday in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

The procession follows the journey Jesus Christ is believed to have made on the day of his crucifixion, from being condemned to death, to carrying his cross to Mount Calvary, to being crucified, taken down, and laid in his tomb. It is a centuries-old Christian tradition that is re-enacted across the World during Lent, but not usually so atmospherically or on such a grand scale as at San Luis Potosi.

If you want to get in touch with George Olney to get first-call on photos from this year's Procession of Silence, or ask him about his extensive collection of other images of Mexico, then visit his website or use his email address.
