Welcome.
Good portfolio so far. My advice would be before you shoot your subject, have a look on the site to see what is already here and then think of new concepts.
I wish you good luck for the future.

Thanks, that is a good point. At the moment i do try and take a picture then try and slot it into the stock photo without thinking of a specific subject first and researching it.

Think in concepts. A good picture must convey a concept. That makes it more sought and bought. Congratulations for your portfolio, and keep shooting :-)

I bought some books by Scott Kelby which are well worth a read too, just finished his digital photography book and his book on CS5.
Worth a look if you get a chance - http://scottkelby.com/

Thanks everyone, i have been doing a bit more research into what is more stock specific. I will post my findings soon. Anyone care to post up some of their best sellers to get me in the right direction?

Is it worth trying to focus on a certain category of stock photos each time i go out shooting or just find things of interest when i do. At the moment i have started trying to focus on certain items of each time i go out on a shoot.
what do you guys think?

I like your portfolio. You just need to grow it more.
To make the images on your comments appear, remove the L form the [ imgl ] xxxxxxxx [ /imgl ] like this: [img ] xxxxxxxxx [ /img]. This will make your images appear on comments (Do not add the spaces, I have done it to avoid conflict).
