Now that many people are wondering what more a phone can do than just communicate, it's interesting to look forward for a quick glimpse of what is waiting for us in the future.

Technology is lifting photography to unimaginable levels that were simply fantasy just ten years ago. What is awesome is how much more will be changed within the next decade. Just see these interesting developments that are presented at SIGGRAPH in Vancouver now.  Or this; researchers at Brown University have developed an algorithm that'll allow you to change the season or the time of day in your image.

And if you are interested in more developments that will change our understanding of how we will be working with visual content see these:

If I could buy years of life I´ll put money on the table for 50 more...! In the meantime my Canon cameras will have to suffer my infidelity, as it is a Samsung smartphone that keeps me aware that time is cheap at IKEA.

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!

In case we have any faithful readers out there, we apologize to you for the delay since the last post.  Age fotostock has been seeing the world, specifically travelling to Istanbul to participate in the annual Cepic conference from May 17 till 22.  This conference generates a lot of work for us, both before and after the conference, so we haven´t been able to write in the blog.

We are pleased to report that one of the reasons that Cepic creates a growing workload for age fotostock is because age fotostock director, Alfonso Gutierrez, has been serving on the Cepic Committee and was in fact, re-elected this year to continue serving on the committee.  Alfonso is the chosen representative from the Spanish Association of Stock Agencies to represent them at European level.

Although you might not know of Cepic, it is important for stock photographers and videographers.  CEPIC stands for the Coordination of European Picture Agencies Stock, Press and Heritage, or more commonly, Center of the Picture Industry.  The goal of CEPIC is to be a united voice for the press, stock & heritage organizations of Europe in all matters pertaining to the photographic industry.  As such, CEPIC is involved in attempting to influence the decisions of the European Union in matters such as piracy, Google books, Orphan works, and collective rights management (see more here).  Policy for these matters and others is being decided at the level of the European Union, and those decisions will affect all photographers whose photography is being licensed at some place in the European Union.  That’s why age fotostock feels it is important to be involved and is glad to have a key person close to the events. 

If you are interested in learning more about the photo industry environment in this year’s Cepic conference, take a look at this reflection on the state of the photography industry by conference attendee Liz Pepper.
