Join: The Picture Pantry – ‘pleased to be the slowest growing food stock library’

A refreshing email landed on the PAN news desk this week from Craig Holmes a food photographer with over 15 years experience of working with magazines, publishers and advertising clients now owner at contemporary food and drink stock photo library The Picture Pantry:
“Hi Will, I am hoping the following may be of interest to you and your site.
The Picture Pantry is pleased to be the slowest growing food stock library. There is no doubt about it, we like slow growth. The Picture Pantry, which represents a small number of food photographers around the globe, is now looking to slowly increase its collection by working with a further 10 creative photographers during 2014.”
“We aren’t aiming to be the biggest stock library around by quickly adding mediocre food images, we take our time and select individual photographs that are both beautiful and current”, says Craig Holmes, the Photographic Partner. For clients, this means that every search they make on the library returns images that are relevant, intelligent and stylish.
Other stock libraries often have a policy of ‘stack them high and sell them cheap’. That isn’t suitable for many clients, and the returns certainly don’t work for most photographers. For that reason, we add value by offering a curated collection of images to clients from a select number of invited photographers.’

• The process of recruiting new photographers for 2014 has now started send samples of work, and website links, to [email protected]
• Photographers will earn 50% from the sale of all images on a royalty free basis.

Go See: The Years of La Dolce Vita – The Birth of Celebrity Culture in Focus – London

This summer the Estorick Collection in London presents The Years of La Dolce Vita, an exhibition which explores one of the most fertile periods in contemporary Italian cinema and the simultaneous explosion of celebrity culture.
‘Revealing the public, professional and private lives of some of the movie industry’s most celebrated actors and actresses, The Years of La Dolce Vita not only provides a candid and evocative snapshot of an era noted for its extraordinary vitality, but also presents a selection of images which, for better or worse, helped to change the face of photojournalism forever.’
The eighty photographs, on view from 30 April to 29 June 2014, capture the dolce vita (literally ‘sweet life’) enjoyed by Italian movie stars and Hollywood ‘royalty’ working in Rome during the 1960s.
This exhibition draws on the vast archive of Marcello Geppetti – one of the inspirations for the character of Paparazzo in La Dolce Vita (1960) – as well as number of photographs taken on the set of the film by its cameraman, Arturo Zavattini.

Hi Will,

I hope you could assist again and spread the word about the photographer Percy C Rising and his pictures of Sir Ian McKellen.

Please could you reach out to fellow readers and picture editors for any information about the whereabouts of Percy C Rising or his archive ?
It would be fantastic to find out where and I would be able to licence some of his images .

Unfortunately my attempts to get answers from Ian McKellen’s website designer and his management failed …

Thank you very much in advance.
Have a lovely evening,
Multimedia Researcher
