Inspired by sailors' clothing, Coco Chanel created her first nautical collection in 1917, with stripes and lines plentifully stamped on dresses and shirts. This elegant aesthetic, synonymous with casual chic Parisian style, continues to be popular in both catwalks and trend blogs today.

Spots became fashionable in the 40s and 50s due to the influence of Hollywood stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Elizabeth Taylor, and the possession of a polka dot dress became a definite must as soon as Lucille Ball made it her staple in the hit television show I Love Lucy. Since then, dots have also taken an essential role in our wardrobe as well as in general fashion globally – just take a look at the rise in fame of artworks by Yayoi Kusama, "The Princess of Polka Dots".

Stripes and polka dots combine to create a look full of color, life and fun – an irresistible invitation that always rewards with a smile. Do you dare?

It’s less than a week before the sports event of the year starts! We won’t be in London covering the action but we’ve already begun warming up, doing all the stretching exercises required to prevent injury while watching the competition from the comfort of our sofas.

Sports Images are always in demand, not only to illustrate pieces related to one sport or the other, but also to illustrate all the concepts and values that sports encapsulate. Sports images are visual resources which communicate an endless list of positive and popular concepts related to topics such as motivation, achievement, action, energy, contentment, leisure, success, team work, risk (in adventure sports) or healthy and active lifestyles.

Here is the latest gallery of images that we’ve sent to our clients, containing sports images that can be found at age fotostock. Check it out, enjoy it - we hope it gets you inspired and motivated to go out and shoot some great images! And remember, there are images everywhere…photographers’ eyes only need to discover them!

Focus on: the Entrepreneurial Spirit

In crisis times, not everyone is looking for salvation in a safe, company job.  Some people choose to be their own boss, and start a small business.  A recent Gallup study shows that despite the risks of failure, entrepreneurs are often happier than employees because they still make their own decisions, right or wrong, rather than waiting for the axe to fall.  Also, some countries encourage the entrepreneurial spirit in crisis times with micro-credits, grants and other public assistance. 

Situations:  Show the owners of new, small businesses at work and on location in garden centers, landscaping, bakeries, delis/cafes, gift shops, pet stores, shoe shops, jewelry stores, craft shops, etc.

Subjects:  Seek entrepreneurs, 25-40 years old, who communicate energy, confidence and pride.  These could be friends, family members, or acquaintenances of yours.  However, don’t forget to get signed model releases! (sample release here: )

Client request:  Please send photos of “real people entrepreneurs,” not models posing as entrepreneurs.

Editor tips:  (a) Include some frames which show the entire body of the model and give an idea of location, not just close-ups. (b) Leave enough negative space to add texts. (c) Don´t over "wide-angle" the image, a 28 or 35 mm. is more than enough.
