I havent uploaded to microstock in ages but ive been fairly busy shooting corporate videos and also have done several music videos, enough to pay for a C300 mk II and splurge 25k for a new kitchen for my wife, anyway.  Kitchen just got finished, so after the holidays Im gonna film my first stock video series and get my piece of that kitchen pie too, at least for as long as gray cabinets and stainless appliances provide the aesthetics that buyers are looking for.  Id do more but i also work in a lab full time and have god children that we spend a lot of time with, so time is limited.  LOVE the Red but aint buyin one!!, lol....

Just realised that's where SS got their newest idea:
https://www.pond5.com/select

That's probably the future of the Microstock industry, be 'select' ... or be square.
Its not a new idea though most sites sell some kind of "premium" collection often with no discernable quality difference with the best of "normal" microstock. I guess for some buyers not having to wade through the 95% of "not the best" is a valuable time saver.

They all follow each other.

 ;D I see you have never shot or have not a clue on how to shoot footage for stock. ;D

Its more the finding of those locations.  Thats the hard part.

The guy probably have been using leftovers from paid-for jobs for years directly to amass this library.

Hire some some models, book a location, rent a RED camera for a day, shoot 8 hours of footage, chop it into 30-second bites. One day gives you 960 clips. A month of that gives you tens of thousands. (If you're not picky.)
