Acceptance ratio

posted on 18th of december, 2009

After having steadily increased my monthly acceptance ratios, I'm moving onto different grounds.

I have now a relatively good idea about whether this or that portrait or landscape will get accepted or rejected.

But when it comes to concept shots, it's still a total fog!

I have lots of ideas but more often than not they're too complicated to execute. Some ideas I manage to put into a what I consider nice enough picture to submit. But more often than not they come back as "not stock oriented"...

Well, I guess there has to be a learning curve.

As I anxiously wait for the result of my latest submissions, I see with despair my acceptance ratio plummeting!!!

All this to say that as much as I admire people who've got a high acceptance ratio, I have to accept that taking risks is part of the game. I could still be doing the shots I know best but if I want to diversify, then I have to get out of my comfort zone. No risk, no gain, it's all about risk management!

I'm always in the fog when it comes to what will be accepted or rejected. It's quite an art figuring out an agency's mindset.

The image below is a concept I just had approved today. Not all are accepted but you have to try when you get ideas.
