On many stock sites you can read, that "we don't need your pet, we belive it's cute and funny, but thank you..." So, I've never tried to upload a photo from my tortoise or my grandma's cat, until yesterday. I decided to try a postcard-like photo of my grandma's fat, lazy, orange cat - I tought it should be useful for a veterinary or for illustration. And, wow, it's accepted for today!

I don't want to 'sold out' our cat, and I promise I won't upload hundreds of photos about her, but anyway, I'm so happy about it. :)

It's a long learning, to figure out what is acceptable and what is not sale able...and I'm on the beginning. :) Your comments are really important to me, because a photo from a beloved pet (or child etc.) means more to the photographer than others and buyers, so hard to be objective during uploading. Thank you for your comments and your opinions!

If the photo is good, whatever it is if the admins think it is sale able they will accept it, else you will get rejected. Its hard to understand the theory what they want and what they don't want. As I always say move on, upload better ones. Oh sorry I like you cat image,

In my opinion common rules dont apply to good photos....so the idea is even our pet photos are ok as long as they are good :))
Yours is good...
best of luck

About me

I've started photographing a few years ago with a compact cam. In 2008 november I decided to buy a DSLR cam, and I chose a Pentax k10d. Now I'm upgraded into a Pentax K-3 for more details. I rarely use hard Photoshop effects, I'd better see the real world in my photos. My main interests are travelling and towns - and nature, of course. I think I'm good at nightscenes - however, I don't like to take photos about people, so my pics sometimes seems a little static - mainly for Stock photographing, but I don't give up. :) Lots of my photos are based on R... [Read more]
