  • Too many shots!

    by Kikkerdirk | 10th of September, 2009

    I think that if we want to get more attention from the buyers we have to take a little less pictures! Yes indeed less pictures! I see you scratching your head! You look surprised! No this is not a joke! I'm talking from my experience with film. I'm studying analog... More

    by Eclecticelegance | 27th of May, 2009

  • Looking from buyers side of the table

    by Alexhor | 26th of May, 2009

    Today I was thinking about stock photography buyers. Is this important? It must be, it affects sales. That leads to the point that at stock agency every contributor must think in advance. My first bunch of images was mostly rejected. I wasn't thinking anything. It was... More

    by Starblue | 14th of April, 2009

    Last week one of my friend told me about her experience of searching images of angels. After our discussion, I´ve tried the part of a buyer. I would suggest to all photographers to make such an experience. Especially for getting an idea how keywording is an important, but... More

    by Tan510jomast | 9th of February, 2009

    earlier this morning i was answering a question put forward by a peer who was wondering why only the "sexy pictures seem to sell ". the poster wondered is it because "designers are mostly males". i thought that was an interesting topic and a rather funny observation. the... More
  • will buyers be looking for the same images?

    by Tan510jomast | 4th of February, 2009

    I suppose it makes little difference to those of us who are new contributors in the micro stock trade. But I can't help wondering if all the surveys about trends, best selling images historically, etc.. really make any impact nowadays, or before this time. Like magazines,... More
