New Free Textures

It been a while since I last posted textures to my website so have added 2 new sets today.

Both sets have 10 large textures. A black and white set and a pretty colourful grunge set.

They are free to use (see terms of use on website)

I often get asked why I give them away. Well simply, I have great fun making them. When I first started learning how to use textures I experimented with free textures from other photographers. Now I get the opportunity to do the same by offering my textures for free.

You can see and download my textures here: http://sjfinearts.com/blog/

Copyright Theft

Sadly all to common.
This is the first time I have been confronted with someone who has refused to remove the work after I have explained that it belongs to me and she has no permission to use it. I have even explained I am prepaired to take legal action
Her name is dorina on the site ‘Artflakes’

I have emailed Artflakes and am waiting for their reply
Any other advise would be really helpful. Quite upset at the horrible person :(

Sales

I haven’t done any journals for some time. I have had quite a few sales the last few months :) so thought it would be good to show which examples of my work are selling and take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the people that have put a big smile on my face and brought my work.
Also I wanted to mention the exhibition I have running at Blakesley Hall Museum in Birmingham. It was a project I took on for the museum to photograph the garden there with my macro lens over the course of the year. The exhibition went up in April and runs until the end of October (when the museum closes to the public) The museum has just asked whether the exhibition can stay up for another year/season next year as they have had such good feedback on it :)))

Sales since May 2010
