These stories, many shared for the first time, highlight how a particular image was shot, the challenges, and the series of details required to capture the subject, preserve the mood or record that key moment in time. These behind-the-scenes stories from the eye of the photographer provide a new perspective for customers as they view and learn about the new Portfolio collections.

Scenes from the Art world - 30 years of Gallery culture by Dafydd Jones
Idea Generation Gallery, London Exhibition: 6th October – 16th October
A leading pioneer in society photography Dafydd Jones has been photographing key art world names for the past three decades. His social reportage is a visual record of the Art world’s transformation from small and unknown gallery launches of the nineteen eighties to the large scale celebrity haunts of the contemporary art market.
The exhibition entitled Scenes from the Art world: 30 years of Gallery culture will bring together a hand selected series of images from Dafydd Jones’ extensive catalogue. A panel discussion on the nature of artist as Celebrity will run alongside the exhibition and the images will be available for purchase from the Idea Generation Gallery store, affording a rare opportunity to buy some of Jones’ finest work.
“The art world knows how to party and make the most of having a good time. A party of rich bankers would inevitably be dull. But the mixture of suits, Russian collectors, socialites, young artists, the newly rich, hangers on, models, starving artists and journalists makes for a good party and a great set of shots. It’s a formula that’s worked for 30 years.” Dafydd Jones

12 Sept: PAN has received an email from the 'webmaster' at Buce Juice - here it is:
Hello, your talking about our site www.bruce-juice.com on PA news, I thought I would give you the respect of a response. I suspected our site was being targeted by media groups, and tonight I found out why after reading your copyright watch. I speak to web-masters of other image sharing sites and they haven't had any emails, as yet.
If there is copyright issues on our site, it's only fair the owners will want to get to the bottom of it. I've learnt a lot over the last few days, dealing with many emails, removing a lot of content etc..
We have received emails from various media/news groups concerning our site, some conclude with simply removing content and us explaining where the images came from (I assume they take that info and attempt to follow the breadcrumbs back to source) , others however, are quite happy to hold us responsible for a planet-wide hacking conspiracy, with no talk other than layers.
I found 3 variations of "Copyright Watch!" about Bruce Juice, and the one thing that truly troubled me, is that there is talk of us having some sort of FTP or server access which we exploit to gain access to images, THIS IS NOT TRUE. All the images on our site are already openly available
on sites such as Imagebam, linked to via forums and blogs.
After explaining to one agency where we get our images from (I won't mention names as they where very helpful) , they suggested our site's pitch wasn't doing us any favours, and our wording was also an issue.
We have revised our copyright notice, and our Facebook fan page text. The lady at the above mentioned agency agreed that the main concern was the source, which we helped point in the right direction.
There is clearly a problem with the images being shared. What confuses me is the lack of talk aimed at getting to the bottom of their leaks. If someone is illegally hacking in, tho more likely untrustworthy employee's or customers. Then this should be the focus, this is the source of the problem.
I am positive that imagebam, imagevenue etc will store records of the IP's used to upload copyrighted images, with that information an address can be found, which I suspect would probably be the address of a customer or employee, or worst case - a hacker.
'Hi Bruce juice, thanks for getting in touch - you have completely missed the point, I will be happy to help you understand the commercial aspects of editorial and commercial photography but you will have to call me'. ... nothing from them yet.
NB - BBC reports: File-sharing site hit by hackers
9th Sept: One large photo agency will be confirming today if their legal team will be chasing Bruce-Juice.
- 6 photo agency owners have confirmed their images are on the site
- One agency owner from LA commented: "Hi Will, Yes Bruce-Juice.com are one of the many sites that rip us off wholesale on a regular basis. Their Quantcast shows only around 20K monthly traffic so we stopped thinking about them as a viable litigation.
If someone else has any ideas on how to squeeze money out of them or shut them down, I would love to hear them.......thanks"
- Another from the UK: "Our content is on this site. I have had a skim through this morning and identified 4 big studio shoots so far.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Let me know the other agencies and planned action".
- Another agency boss: 'If any other agencies are taking legal action we'd love to know, as this website is exposing a scandalous way of stealing'.
A number of photo agencies have contacted PAN about the activities of http://www.bruce-juice.com
The site offers hi res photo downloads, mainly celebrity photo content - for free. - 'Welcome to Bruce Juice, the UK's biggest celebrity image sharing website'. Rex Features in the UK first raised the alarm in an email to PhotoArchiveNews.com yesterday, we then sent an 'Alert' email to pap agency owners including the large general news agencies. Four agencies have now confirmed their images are available on the site without permission or arrangement.
It appears bruce-juice.com or a contributor to the site has tapped into an unsecure FTP server at a newspaper or magazine in the UK. If your content is on the site without permission let us know - will (at) photoarchivenews.com - and we will put you in touch with all agencies affected.
This is the Bruce Juice copyright notice!: 'All images on bruce-juice.com featuring individuals of 'celebrity' and 'public figure' status are believed to be in the public domain. bruce-juice.com does not claim ownership of any images featuring individuals of 'celebrity' and 'public figure' status. bruce-juice.com DOES NOT accept responsibility for it's users downloading material that is later found to be an infringement of copyright laws'.
PictureGroup Europe images are now available on IDS Picture Desk - 'the one stop image search platform for media professionals' - We reported last month the opening in London of Picture Group Europe (PictureGroup was launched in the US in 2009 by entertainment photographer Frank Micelotta) The UK based arm of the agency headed up by Chief Photographer Anthony Harvey, formerly with PA and European Sales & Licensing Manager Stephen West formerly with Getty Images.
The UK Picture Editors' Guild Awards 2011: Winners' Exhibition - Museum Of London - September 29th 2011 - 22 january 2012.
This year's award-winning images will be on display to the public in a ground-breaking new exhibition thanks to PhotoBox and the Museum of London.
Guild chairman Alan Sparrow sees the exhibition as a chance to let the public appreciate up-close the talent and professionalism that goes into a great Press picture. He said:' This is how every photographer likes to show off the best of their work - a huge perfect print to be viewed at leisure. We are fortunate to have such a great company as PhotoBox, coupled with the Museum of London, to create this fantastic addition to the 2011 Awards.'

.....'After negotiating a few bundles of papers thrown from the vans I ran in to Salisbury Court and found the entrance in an alley way leading to St Brides Church and gingerly poked my head around the door. “Come in lad, just don’t stand there” came a friendly voice peering over a newspaper. It was Mr Jones, Picture Editor, Jonah, as he was fondly known by his colleagues and whom I had met the week before during my interview. I was introduced to the head messenger boy, “he will show you the ropes”; he said and left to carry on with his work. And so I started my career as a messenger boy with the Associated Press Photos at the age of sixteen earning the princely sum of £2.10 shillings a week. One of my priority duties was to get a regular supply of tea for the photographers who had just come back from an assignment. Boy! Get the tea-I would grab an old enamel jug, the photographer would give me sixpence and I would go across the road to Manzies and get the tea as well as thick buttered cheese rolls......

In memory of photographer Lucas Dolega his partner Nathalie his parents, friends and colleagues, have decided to pay him homage with the creation of an association. The Lucas Dolega Association will be dedicated to these objectives of memory, of support to the independant photographers and of raising public awareness.
'After Lucas’ departure, Nathalie, his partner and us, his parents, friends and colleagues, have decided to pay him homage with the creation of an association. To keep him with us, we had to retrace his career path, to tell his story, to show his pictures. We had to keep a trace of his energy and of his passion for this job. His curiosity for the others implied also to look forward : from there was born our wish to open a platform of information and exchange dedicated to the photojournalists. Its aim is to support them in the preparation of their stories, in their actions on the field and to help them to showcase their work.
Lastly, because Lucas died in Tunisia, at the first moments of the Jasmin Revolution, we had to remind the public that in order to bring back these images that we look at everyday, some men and women take risks'.
