What is wrong with my photos?

posted on 20th of may, 2011

What kind of photos are of commercial value?It seems that I do not know.I tried to create concepts, isolated on white pictures, people shoots, illustrations, etc.It seems that nothing goes.I need fresh ideas.
Maybe there is something wrong with my portfolio and i dont realize.
Retouching defects, composition defects, incorrect topics etc.who knows?
You ever happened to be so insecure?But if i pay the moderators to rebuild my keywords and description?In this way I will have sales?Who has any advice for me feel free to tell me .For those who are in my position:SOMETHING MUST BE DONE

Thank you but,i try to be as much creative and unique as i can.Probably that's why i dont have to much sales for now.Is not the money but the fact that my work is sellable or not.I like to think that my work is not somebody alse copy.Do you see best sellers copy's in my port?If so,you have right and is time for me to do something alse.Im not being rude but i dont like to see someone saying that im copying best sellers photos

Hello, there is really nothing wrong with anybody's photos. It's like everything in art, music,etc.. the best sellers just are there at the right place and the right time. Many of my more experienced stock peers have even voiced that these days are more difficult than say 5, 10 years ago when they first got into the business.
I am not going to give you any advice, as I am still waiting for my own best advice. But I remember several super stock photographers telling me the same thing, "don't try to clone someone else's work just bc they are selling a million and you just started. they've got the foothold in the market for their style, you will only be lost among the thousand and one of those who try to copy us top sellers. Find what you do best.
And go with it long term. Eventually, buyers will look for your work the same way as they are now looking for those who sold a million last year,etc".
I follow that wisdom. You're welcome to take what I 've been advised and do the same for yourself....(More)
