Decision Time for foodonwhite...

Well, we've made a big decision.

We know the image library market has changed drastically in the last few years.
We know the success of microstock has killed off a lot of business for small independent photolibraries.
We know design companies are signing up to microstock deals in their droves.
We know anyone can buy a half decent high res SLR these days and point it at a vegetable.
Call it progress, call it a tragedy, call it the death of the industry if you will, but we know it can never return to the way it was. Change has already well and truly happened.

We have had to make a difficult decision: Whether to be part of the past (and sit around remembering how many images we used to sell), or be part of the future.

We have decided to move our images to Shutterstock.
OK, this won't be a popular decision with some photographers and libraries, but means our images will now be available at ridiculously low prices to the anyone around the globe.

It may take a little time to transfer all our foodonwhite images over (and Shutterstock don't seem to accept any photos shot in natural daylight or with shallow depth of field, which is a little frustrating!) but you can already start downloading now at our portfolio page:

We will still be blogging and tweeting as usual, so will keep in touch with you all still (links below).

With all our best wishes to you all for the future.
