Much can be learned about the formation of galaxies by taking a census of the present-day population. As a first step towards such an endeavour, I present luminosity and surface brightness distributions of 36 659 galaxies with K-band photometry from the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS) Large Area Survey (LAS) Data Release 3 and optical photometry from Data Release 5 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS).
