That time of the year again – Father Christmas Photo

This time of the year people seem to buy my Father Christmas running photo, maybe getting websites and publications ready for the Xmas period.

I took this images a few years a go at the Newton santa run, when I was getting into digital photography, it’s not shot on a DSLR on a canon powershot, but its my biggest selling shot (I only sell a few of my photos a month, so wont give up the day job)

Looking back it was not a great image in terms of composition and the colour was not great.. but its been popular and allows me to buy odds and sods for my camera every year as its for sale on iStockphoto

Unfortunately the quality of photos you need to put up nowadays is very high and I don’t have many accepted 🙁
