I am newbie on stock photography (just since October 2008) and I am a little bit lost on what people actually search on it.
Nowadays I have only (not bad, but…) 75 images on line and some of them have been taken before I was a “stocker” (I don’t know if this word exists). But the result that I see is that are more popular the “normal” images as the “shoot for stock” images.
For instance, here are some Glaciers images are very popular
Hi Antoni, I think that stock photography is much more oriented on business subjects and still life, because these kind of photography could be used to express in a clear way a concept or to isolate an object for post-production creative processes. Landscapes are very beautiful, but could have a minor potential in terms of marketing language. Nevertheless I believe that if one don't takes pictures for money, he should continue to photograph what he really likes. As a matter of facts the real satisfaction is the picture you have realized and the relative appreciation. So don't give up, and do it for fun! Wish your best, Fulvio.
