    I have the latter one, but I'm in the U.S. I don't know what would be best for you. You can still sell photos to the U.S. market I'm sure. Get em both.

    The bottom one, which I have, is great because it not only gives all the contact info of the magazines, but it also has feature articles on established photogs and how they broke in, as well as how to prepare your portoflio, and intro letter.

    do you think these would be good for stock photo sites? I know nothing about how they work and which is the best so any advice from you experts would be most welcome!

    ANYTHING that has a pic of an identifiable person in it will require a model release unless it is editorial. I don't know how you want to start out, but there are several ways to break in. There is a fantastic forum that might be of interest to you and how the stock side of things work. Thought geared to Microstock, there are several threads about the biggies like Getty, Corbis and Alamy. http://www.microstockgroup.com/forum/ At the moment I am getting ready to ship my first CD submission to Alamy in hopes of getting on with them.

    Theres a new site called gonogging.com that sells users photos. The prices are pretty good, they might have some photos for your postcards.

    That's really up to the publisher, but images are more sellable with a model release.

    I don't know companies for that in the UK but the simplest way to find them is to look on the back of the postcards in your area.
