Science and Medicine in Stock Photography

02 February 2014

SIG: Medical

Following the Medical Group AGM on 16th January, the first MG event of 2014 was a talk on the use of scientific and medical images in the stock photography industry, hosted by the Postgraduate Education Centre of Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. The talk was given by Gary Evans ASIS FRPS, Hon.Treasurer of the Medical Group and an employee of the Science Photo Library for 23 years.

The presentation was richly illustrated with images selected from SPL's collection of more than 500,000 pictures and 30,000 video clips. Gary first outlined the role of stock agencies in the media before showing the kinds of scientific and medical images that are purchased by picture buyers and publishers. The talk was followed by a lively Q&A session.
