Stock art is todays promissing way of living and working for many individuals as well as companies... Many people and companies also buy images, vector artwork or footage which fit their needs.
It becomes a very competitive industry and has approximately 20 milion potential buyers market which is growing.
I did my contribution and will continue to contribute because I think it will be one common way for many more people or companies in the future to sell or buy images, artwork or footage.
Only thing I do not like about stock agencies is over policing ways of submitting images. Some of them are making you think and work under their 'big picture' which is not always right picture...
It is a kind of introducing rules which are in some cases so stupid and way beyond any clear logic and common sense as some laws which will not last for long... About this matter I always say that stock art should be free market with demand - not with artificially created demand which appears to be case in todays law-and-order powered economy. Only what should any agency implement in their rules is that contributors submit higest possible quality images without any limitations on subject (except explicite sex and violence) and or technique. Market will differ good works and less good works itself and contributors who do not make it the way market dictates will wanish as well as policing praxis agencies.
