I want to share my thoughts with you since I read frustrating lines in message boards about Stock Photography.
Sometimes I see people looking for their images and wondering where they are being used or by whom they were bought. It is just a useless curiosity. I really do not wonder and mind whosoever bought my image and where he or she used it ! Who cares ? ( by the way I thank them all ) Instead use your time to find new concepts.
I also strongly believe that the future of stock photography will be much better than today. Our world is becoming a place of visual elements. New images, new ideas and new concepts will always be needed. Free images , free sites, the ability of capturing digital images will not threaten real professionals and the ones who really work hard.
Well, lets summarize all the lines I wrote;
If you are a dabbler there is nothing you need to worry. Keep on capturing images and share them in your stocks. It is great !
If you think the Photography as a job, take it as a whole and work on it. Read all about, try new ideas, ask, share , do everything to improve yourself and your work.
And please think positive !
