AFAIK there is no particular german term for "stock", we use the english 
word for it: "Stock Fotografie". Note that in german we do not use the "Ph" 
as "F" anymore.


Let's make a try:

"Freiberuflicher Stock Fotograf"

This would be the correct translation; but it sounds a bit odd, but it 
works. I guess many people will not know what ist is (at least those who 
are not into photography).

Maybe some other german speaking LUGgers have a better proposition?

In french it's the same with "Stock", haven't found any particular french 
term for it. So it would be:

"Photographe de Stock ind?pendant"

Note the accent "egu" on the first "e" of independant, thats a little slash 
that goes from down left to up right. If it's used as a title, Photographe 
and Stock begin with a capital, otherwise not; same rule as in english. If 
it's all written in capitals, no accents are needed.

Hallo les amis, est-ce que quelqu'un a une meilleure proposition pour Gerry?

Hope it helps
