Very "Old school", but well done.

For a new microstocker, very good I think. Subjects are hot, but on the other hand very saturated. I don't know about your sale numbers but competition is very tough for that kind of as mentioned "old school" imagery. Good luck!

I didn't understand "oldschool" but then I looked at your portfolio and I got what Ignatus meant. Traditional takes on traditional stock concepts. That's not bad, but that will make it hard to stand out.

Much of the styling looks very odd to American eyes - that might be fine in other markets.I did find that a number of images were a bit muddled conceptually - just a hodgepodge of ideas as if you didn't perhaps understand how things fit together? And some of your keywording really needs work - I think you're copying and pasting from one image to another without editing out inapplicable words.

So, for the keywording example, this image of rather ornate women's shoes has men's shoes, throw out, red ("Golden lady shoes closeup isolated") and so on

For the styling, the shoes above, and the jacket on this guy

Or this shopping bag

Or the thermometer on this shot - I at first thought it was for cooking

An example of the muddled concept would be this one

The drawings on the tablet aren't oriented for the hands that are writing, and quite why he's writing in a notebook with a tablet and phone to hand is lost on me. The coffee needs to be nearer the person who might drink it - I think he needs caffeine!

There are other examples, but I hope you get the general idea from the above. Good luck
