Ex Picture Editor – now Editorial Photographer James Clarke is online this week with a brand new site
‘I’ve given the old online presence a bit of a spring clean, dumped a load of the older pics and upgraded with a cleaner minimal new look.’
‘I’ve been a freelance photographer for 5 years. Prior to this, from 2003 to 2009, I was a picture editor and photographer for The Times and before that I was a picture editor for numerous titles and organisations including The Guardian, Time Out, Melody Maker, Dorling Kindersley and Getty Images.’
Woodstock, New York based photo library The Image Works are online with 776 license-ready images from French photographer Charles Marville (1813–1879). They say: ‘Marville was commissioned by the city of Paris to document the picturesque, medieval streets of old Paris that were slated for demolition. ‘The result is photos of a lost Paris’. His work is currently on exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Image Works is proud to have a comprehesive collection of the photos of Charles Marville.’

Roger Tooth, head of photography at the Guardian newspaper in the UK has penned a blog post about the front page use of a stock photo over at the Mirror newspaper – titled ‘Mirror’s weeping child picture is a lie and smacks of lazy journalism at best’- it’s an interesting read about the use of a single image to represent a news story.
‘The Daily Mirror – in my view – has one of the most comprehensive and well managed editorial photographic archives in the world. Having been lucky to do a few consultancy jobs on it over the years it is obvious from my time at the Mirror’s photographic archives in Watford that the use and appreciation of photography is one thing which the newspaper has always held foremost as part of it’s success since 1904 when the Daily Mirror was the first newspaper in the UK to use news photography.’
