Story
Tagline
Photographer and Business Analyst - Curiosity killed the cat....
Introduction
Black and white photography is my passion but with everyone now being a photographer, I've hung up my camera for anything but purely personal gratification. I've had work published in Photo magazines and the BBC has frequently shown my work, commissioning a photo essay from me for the relaunch of their Devon website.

My day job for 8 months of each year is as a freelance business analyst. The limited company, Crocus Information Ltd, is the vehicle behind my various revenue streams.

Like many, I've focused on an online income and I run a successful Zazzle store at zazzle.com/HightonRidley To help me with promoting I developed some automation tools. They worked so well, that I also sell them on ZapMeCash.com where I also have details of my affiliate program.

I use the automation tools on a few of my blogs, including CoordinatedWeddings, PillowsULike, WatchesULike and BagsULike and these are good examples of what can be achieved.
Bragging rights
Commissioned By BBC for relaunch of Devon site - Banksy was chosen for the Bristol one! Merged the payment processing organisations of the Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise when they became one: HMRC. The integrity of the entire UK's cash flow was in my hands. All went smoothly!

My type of humour!
The perfect card for an English teacher, or anyone for whom grammar (and/or owls) has particular significance.

Hi Mark, so sorry to have missed this, thank you very much! Been in France for some time and only on iPad with rather poor data, so will explore this on my return. Cheers, Paul

Right now, Amazon occupies the moral low-ground and there is no financial incentive for them to to do more than the minimum. Let's change that.
Amazon.com provides the opportunity for businesses to sell products in their marketplace. According to the "Important Information for International Sellers", a seller has to agree that the sale and delivery of the product will not violate the intellectual property rights of others (e.g. the product manufacturer).  This has not stopped numerous overseas businesses from stealing artwork and designs for Print On Demand companies like Zazzle and Soci...

To any solicitors / lawyers "out there". Would it technically be possible for the maturing generation to pursue a class action against the present adults for what's being done to THEIR planet? Global warming etc.
In case there aren't any legal folk with me in their circles, please ask around for me and let me know. Just curious.
